Boiler Boffin are one of London & Hertfordshire’s leading central heating repair and installation companies.
We provide prompt, affordable and reliable services throughout Hertfordshire and London.

Why Choose Boiler Boffin?

Boiler Boffin is run by Gas Safe engineers who specialise in boiler installations, servicing and repairs. We are accredited with Vaillant, ATAG, Baxi, Viessmann and Glowworm boiler manufacturers, as well as Nest and Hive smart thermostat manufacturers.

We can often offer you extended warranties at no additional charge because of our relationship with these manufacturers — such as a ten-year part and labour warranty, plus a lifetime warranty on the boilers heat exchanger for all of our ATAG boiler installations.

Experienced, Gas Safe Registered Engineers

Our engineers are gas safe registered, certified Nest Pro installers who provide expert boiler installation and maintenance services. They are up-to-date with new technologies, including intelligent heating control systems and can recommend how to make your heating more efficient and cost-effective.

Fixed Price Thermostat Installations

See the cost up front before committing to your thermostat installation, with the option to bolt-on additional services for a discounted fee. Nest thermostat installations are available from £260, around 15% cheaper than purchasing a Nest thermostat with installation from Amazon.

Half Price Boiler Servicing

When you buy a Nest or Hive thermostat, add on a Boiler service for just £40. Includes a service of your Gas Central Heating Boiler, a Tightness Test of your gas pipework and a PDF emailed to you with all the details and test results.

Smart Home Systems Specialists

We can integrate your smart thermostat with other smart home systems you own, such as Amazon Alexa so that you can control your heating comfortably and conveniently.

Finance Options Available

Urgent boiler replacements and new central heating systems are an expense that you’re often unprepared for. Let us help you manage the cost by making monthly payments over an agreed period.

Accredited with Vaillant, Viessmann and Other Major Boiler Manufacturers

Our experienced heating engineers have trained for full accreditation with the major boiler manufacturers for your total peace of mind.
