Alan arrived promptly for a pre-booked boiler service appointment.
He was extremely knowledgable and clearly took great pride in his work.
I was impressed with the thoroughness of his work and that (given the time he spent) was extremely good value for money.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and infact, I am now trying to rebook him to repair my poor DIY plumbing attempt!
Jennie Truman from Exeter , March 25, 2018
I would highly recommend A Addicott plumbers. I discovered that my boiler was leaking late one evening and they came out immediately to check out the problem. They provided a thorough examination of the boiler and all radiators in the house solving the problem. The didn't charge expensive call out fees, I found the service extremely high quality and affordable.
Adrian Walker from Exeter , March 5, 2018
Alan was punctual, clean and tidy. We had a repetitive loud noise from the boiler enough to wake the kids at night and have had two other plumbers (one changed the fan) but neither were able to diagnose the problem or suggest any way to solve the issue.
Thanks to Alan we are now sorted and although it took some time to get to the nub of the problem our boiler is now running beautifully again.
p froeschle from exminster , December 20, 2017
Fantastic service from Alan, problem (leaking toilet) resolved in no time, professional, knowledgeable, no fuss.

Plus did let me know that he was going to arrive slightly delayed.
Fair pricing policy.

No complaint at all, would definitely recommend!!

Ingrid Rees from Exeter , December 7, 2017
Alan came round to fix an issue we had with our gas stove and was brilliant. The job was completed quickly and efficiently and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plumbing and heating expert.
Madge and Pat Cartright from Teignmouth , November 27, 2017
Alan Addicott fitted a new part in our boiler. Did it very well indeed. We were very satisfied, nice to have him in the house. very sociable and his manners were lovely. I'd have Alan back again to do any plumbing that we want.
Pam Blick from Newtn Abbot , November 11, 2017
Gas fire re-installed - polite and friendly, efficient & tidy work. A job well done!
Wendy Cox from Exeter , July 8, 2017
Alan has just fitted central heating for us, right from his first visit it was very evident that he was professional and took pride in his work. He has completed an excellent job with the least amount of disruption for us, always discussing things first and explaining what is required. His charge was extremely reasonable for the work completed. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone, we are already planning our next project for Alan.
Fiona Todd from Kingsteignton, Newton Abbot , June 27, 2017
We recently had an emergency for a leaking hot water cylinder. Alan came as soon as he could and carried out the repair rather than just make a temporary fix. He was very polite, explained everything in detail, and considering the job took more than 3 hours, we thought his bill was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend him.
P.King from Exeter , June 11, 2017
Alan is very reliable, professional and conscientious. At last we found a plumber that can be relied upon....a very rare breed indeed. Thank you Alan.
Peter Briggs from Sidmouth , February 17, 2017
Alan Addicott gave an excellent service , turned up on time, completed the work quickly and was very pleasant.
I would recommend him and will use his services again.
PG English from Exeter , February 10, 2017
Alan serviced our older model central heating boiler with expertise. It now performs as it should. Alan was pleasant and courteous, and knowledgeable when we asked a few related questions regarding our system, plus other potential works that he could help us with in the future.
Steven Spicer from (by email) , January 30, 2017
We just had a visit from A.Addicott Plumbing and Heating Services, what an exceptional professional and courteous service they provided, with good price friendly face and they clean up after themselves.

Tom Clague from Exeter , August 1, 2016
A Addicott was engaged to carry out boiler servicing and safety check. This firm completed the work in a thoroughly professional way in stripping down my gas boiler, giving a extensive clean and reassembling. Safety checks were carried out to comply with my house insurance. I have no hesitation in recommending the company for similar work.
Ray from Exeter , June 22, 2016
Alan has just completed a service on my gas boiler. I was very impressed with his knowledge, manner & workmanship & have no hesitation in recommending his service as I know any work carried out will be dealt with professionally & efficiently.
Alex from Exeter , April 19, 2016
We had Alan Addicott around yesterday to fit a new sink unit in our kitchen. Alan came to quote for the job a few weeks ago before the unit arrived and gave an accurate quote. For both the quote visit and the job he arrived exactly at the time he said he would and was quick and courteous. When he arrived to do the job he began working immediately and had the job done within the time he said he would, he didn't stop working for a moment. The standard of work was outstanding, the unit was installed and fully working the moment he had finished despite it being quite a complicated and high-spec piece. I cannot recommend Alan Addicott highly enough and will certainly ask him to return to complete any other plumbing/heating or gas jobs we have in the future.
Natalie from Exeter , April 3, 2016
Alan Addicott attended our property to install a new combo boiler. From the reasonable price quote to completion of work Alan was thorough and set a very high professional standard, which I'm sure would be very hard to beat. Not only is he amazing at his work, but he is also a very nice guy too. Highly recommended.
Nick Carter from Exeter , March 18, 2016
Alan attended our faulty / leaking shower unit on the same day we phoned; identified the problem and the spare part required. When the part arrived 2 days later he attended after his planned working day and fitted it that evening. His work was very neat and tidy and I would definitely recommend him for this and his fast reactive response to sort the problem.
Paul from Exeter , March 11, 2016
Arrived promptly, very polite and well organised. Did a first class job on installing new radiator.
Mrs M Y Ward from Alphington, Exeter , March 8, 2016
Today I had a house call from Alan Addicot for a plumbing problem. I chose his name from the local business booklet I received through my letter box several weeks ago, and how useful it is!!
I would like to let you know I would highly recommend him to anyone. So respectful, friendly, clean work – an absolute ‘Star’, who LISTENED to my problem and found a successful way around it with great ease!
Thanking you
Mr Breckenridge from (not provided) , February 18, 2016
For service to a gas fire and boiler. I would recommend him highly. He did a thorough and very keen job.
Ray Steer-Kemp from Clyst St Mary , September 21, 2015
Alan has just fitted a new central heating boiler for us and done a terrific job. Neat and tidy and very thorough we are delighted with the end result and would happily recommend his services.
Olive Camp from Exeter , September 8, 2015
Alan came recommended as a professional central heating engineer and the standard of his work is second to none.
Very satisfied with work carried out and would have no hesitation in recommending his services
Zoe from Exeter , July 17, 2015
I am so grateful to Alan Addicott for dealing with my water leak at such short notice. He identified the problem quickly and was kind enough to check the bathroom again the next day. He gave such helpful advice in such a pleasant and calm and reassuring manner and his charge was extremely reasonable.
B Oxley from Exeter , May 4, 2015
Well impressed with Alan Addicott's plumbing services. He dropped everything on Saturday to respond to our emergency callout and worked hard for 4 hours until he had resolved our tricky burst pipe issue at a very reasonable price.
Count ourselves very lucky to have discovered him and can only highly recommend his fantastic skills and professionalism.
David hunter from Exeter , April 16, 2015
Moving into an old house, we discovered that the boiler had multiple problems. We had a heating engineer come out and look at it which we shan't go into the details on here, but to say it was not a great experience is putting it mildly.
Having read the the glowing reports on his service we thought we would give Alan a try. Glad we did, quiet, considerate, and a perfect gent. There was quite a lot wrong with the system, including the radiators being silted up with sludge, a faulty non return valve and several other things that he put right. All that he did, he explained why he did it and what effects they where having on the system, he also showed me the faulty parts as he removed them. It took a while to sort out, but we will if necessary use him again and recommend him as we are here. He is a guy that knows his way around a heating system. And loves his job.

Thanks Alan,
Margaret McBain from Exeter Devon , March 26, 2015
I cannot reccomend alan addicott highly enough!!. He saved me at least £2000 by repairing our combi boiler instead of telling us it was a right off like the other plumbers that saw the job. He was very skilled almost completely dismantled the boiler, found the leak checked all the bits to see what needed replacing, ordered them and was back the next day to put it together. Excellent service, really tidy worker too.
If you want a good honest quote from a plumber, the only one you need to contact is Alan Addicott 5 stars from me.
Nac from Exeter , March 23, 2015
Brilliant service from Alan after my central heating pump packed up. He replaced them quickly and efficiently. I also got a central heating flush done as well, and although it uncovered a leak in the cylinder this was also quickly resolved. Honest straight talking chap and fair prices.
Geoff Nicholls from Exeter , March 21, 2015
I needed a plumber to investigate a problem with a shower. I left a message with Alan who got back to me, took details and arranged everything with the tenant concerned. She is happy with the job and I am happy with the price, timescale, and courteous service provided. I would recommend Alan based on this job and will be contacting him again for future requirements
Katherine from Exeter , March 12, 2015
Prompt service from Alan who came to service our gas fire and boiler. Alan was professional and friendly and has done an excellent, thorough job. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Nicolas from Exeter , February 6, 2015
I left a voicemail on Alan's mobile and he returned my call in the evening, arranged for Alan to come the following day as a result of a boiler fault. He spent two hours investigating the fault in the boiler and got it to work again. Very thorough, reliable and helpful plumber and boiler engineer. Highly recommended.
Gerard from Exeter , January 8, 2015
I had a problem with an old boiler and gave Alan a ring. He was able to come in isnpite of the short notice. He took the necessary time to investigate what the problem was and got the boiler working again. Very pleased with the service and advice he provided.
I would definetly use him again and I would highly recommend him
John from Sidbury , December 17, 2014
Alan flushed out our central heating and fitted a filter and our heating is now much more efficient
Highly recommended
Kendra from Exeter , December 5, 2014
We have been calling on Alan when we need any plumbing work carried out for a number of years, including servicing our boiler. Today he has investigated an intermittent fault with our boiler, and as usual, he has taken the time to be thorough in his investigation, and has explained to me what he has done and why.

Alan is friendly and tidy, he doesn't recommend unnecessary work, and we feel that we can trust the advice he gives us.
L.Parsons from Exeter , December 5, 2014
We have used Alan Addicott 3-4 times to service our boiler, I would recommend him to family and friends and have no worries of comeback.
He is friendly, prompt and willing to run through any work carried out.
A good honest worker.
Richard from Sidmouth , December 1, 2014
Boiler service:

Alan was great. Gave me a call to let me know he was running a couple of minutes late. He took the the time to run through what he did and ways to keep my boiler running properly, which was a nice touch.

An efficient competent and trustworthy tradesman who will definitely be called upon again.
Richard England from Exeter , October 17, 2014
Have used Alan for nearly ten years for various heating install and servicing at home. Just fixed our hot water issue with boiler and completed a service. All done in a friendly and very professional manner, and only too happy to explain the problem. Have recommended to other family members who now also use his services. My kind of plumber.
Derek Kaye from Clyst St Mary , October 1, 2014
Boiler service. Excellent.Prompt and efficient. Would recommend to anyone.
Paul Tregoning from Exeter , September 28, 2014
Alan replaced our old central heating boiler. His quote was thorough and proffesionally set out. His attitude was friendly and polite and the job was carried out in a calm and thorough manner. An unexpected problem occurred which was dealt with very expertly, and, on finishing everything was left clean and tidy. We thoroughly recommend Alan as a plumber or heating engineer.
Amanda from Exeter , August 31, 2014
Alan fitted a towel rail, replaced taps throughout the house and upgraded toilet flushes. Work was done to a good standard.
Mike from Exeter , August 29, 2014
Thoroughly good experience -he changed the inlet valve on the bathroom cistern. Only plumber I have encountered who turns up with a wet vacuum to empty the tank completely first and stop water getting on the floor. Efficient, careful, meticulous in what he does and gets on with it. Oh - and his charges are very reasonable. He will be my go -to plumber for the future.
Ian Hopkins from Exeter , August 26, 2014
Yet again, Alan has serviced my central heating Boiler and gas fire.
Good, clean and efficient as before.
Reasonable price.
Alan Outram from Exeter , August 15, 2014
Alan Addicott has provided me with prompt, reliable and friendly service on two occasions. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Andrew from Exeter , August 14, 2014
Alan serviced boiler and replaced faulty toilet siphon. Both jobs carried out very thoroughly and were both reasonably priced.
A very friendly, courteous and efficient service.
Vanessa Skelding from Exeter , August 9, 2014
Good job done, thank you
miss suzanne hennig from yeoford, near crediton , July 12, 2014
I would have no hesitation in calling Mr Addicott again, should the need arise, or in recommending him to anyone looking for a reliable plumbing specialist. Mr Addicott was prompt, efficient and courteous and got to the root of the problem in no time at all. Nothing was too much bother and his rates are very reasonable too.
Lizzie from EXETER , July 6, 2014
We have used Alan for a number of years to service our boiler. He is extremely efficient and reliable - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

He is friendly and approachable and happy to answer any queries you may have over the phone.
MackenzieMoulton from Crediton , May 14, 2014
Alan has serviced my boiler and carried out necessary repairs for me in the last seven years I have lived in Crediton, Devon.
He has a vast knowledge base and is an expert plumber that knows what he is doing. He is friendly, efficient, and clean in his work and I can highly recommend him.
Aimee from Exeter , April 10, 2014
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! ] Came across A Addicott by chance and could not be happier. After being told I needed a replacement boiler and quoted £1200 I got a second opinion. A Addicott promptly returned my call and arranged to come and have a look. I was delighted that he could fix the boiler for a tenth of the cost of my original quote! I was also pleased that he had already got the part he suspected would need replacing in stock and was able to fix the problem straight away.

Friendly, Professional, Reliable service and an extremely reasonable cost.
Aimee from Exeter , April 10, 2014
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I came across A Addicott by chance and could not be happier, he called me straight back, and made arrangements to come and look at my boiler, Having previously been quoted £1200 for a new boiler from another plumber I was over the moon when he could fix it for 10% of that! I was also impressed that having spoken through my problem on the phone he had come prepared and already had the part I needed in stock on the van so could fix it straight away for me.

Friendly, Professional, Reliable Service I will be using again.
