Testimonial - Diane & Martin Lund - La Cheze
Vince and the team - fitted a new log burner to replace our overly large and outdated log burner it is brilliant now, we would like to thank you for the effort you put in, removing the old log burner, timing the new one so it left us time to paint the wall behind where the new Poele Astana now takes pride of place.
It has made such a great difference to our house, the transition appeared to take place seamlessly.
Many thanks to all at Vince Boon Heating Solutions.

Vince has been our Heating Engineer for the last eight years. During this time he has serviced our old boiler and installed a new efficient oil central heating boiler. His workmanship has always been of excellent standard and quality. We have always found Vince to be a reliable, honest and a trustworthy Artisan and would have no hesitation in recommending his business.

We have had Vince install three wood stoves for us now. One in our previous house and two in our new home. We have been delighted with his professionalism on both occasions. He turns up exactly when he says he is coming, does exactly what he says he would do, at exactly the price he quoted us. He's friendly, easy going, professional to have around the house too, as he's polite and easy to work with.
Thanks again to Vince and I always recommend him to everyone.

Vince has done work for us since we arrived in France. The service we have received from Vince has always been excellent, and nothing is too much trouble. He recently fitted an insert pellet stove for us which we are delighted with. Would highly recommend Vince to anyone. Ian & Jean McNab

“As absentee home owners, having trust in the contractors working in our home has been vitally important for us. Vince Boon came highly recommended by our property managers, and we can certainly see why. We were provided with excellent, friendly, service and communication at all times. An expert assessment of our needs and our budget led to the right system for us being installed and we are very happy with it. All work was completed to a high standard, everything was explained and the follow up has been great. We absolutely recommend Vince Boon Heating Solutions for all your heating requirements.” Bronwyn & Peter James
Testimonial - Wendy Mckean - Mael-Carhaix
"We moved into our house a few months ago and very quickly realised that the central heating wasn't working as it should be. We contacted Vince and he came round very quickly, despite his massive workload. He identified a number of problems straight away and explained what needed to be done. He got the parts and came back within the week and made the adjustments necessary. The system then worked so efficiently he had to come back and make further adjustments! It is now perfect and we have had to turn the thermostats down on the radiators as it was too hot!
Vince also swept the chimney where we have a wood burner, so that works better too. All round Vince is the man to go to if you need a Heating Engineer, he is polite, works well, leaves everywhere clean and tidy, very highly recommended. However, he does dehydrate very quickly so keep the coffee flowing..."
We’ve used VB plombier on several occasions here in Huelgoat. The most recent job was quite a complicated one and Vince was able to complete all the required works to the satisfaction of the regulations and ourselves and provided an excellent service as always. His pricing is fair and has often been significantly more reasonable than others we’ve asked. Even more importantly, he is reliable, trustworthy and his work is of a high standard. In case of emergency he is ready to come and well prepared. We would have no hesitation in using Vince again or in recommending him to others.
I would highly recommend Vince from V B Plombier as he recently completed a full log burner change including new flue and chimney. This was completed whilst I was away and when I came back found the house to be nice and clean after all the messy work had been completed and he had left the old log burner as requested. The installation seems of a very good standard and I was kept informed at all times what was going on and after completion the relevant paperwork was e mailed to me for future reference /insurance purposes. I would not hesitate to use him again Many Thanks.
That is brilliant, thank you both very much for all your hard work. Please pass on our huge thanks to Vince for really helping us, in what has been an extremely difficult situation.
I cannot thank Vince enough.
Kind regards and best wishes,
Frank and Sally.
Recommended to us via Facebook. After many (less than positive) visits from various plombiers, Vince looked at our old boiler system, got it going, suggested a solution, and then came and fixed the problem. Nice people, great to deal with. Rob & Jane, Melrand.
Vince has recently installed a wood burner at our home and did a superb job in difficult circumstances.
Throughout the installation his approach was both cheerful and professional. The work was carried out to a high standard, in a tidy fashion and with minimum disruption to ourselves.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Vince and intend to use his services again in the future.
“V B Plombier came to give an estimate for installing a log burner. The estimate was fair and I was given a date for the work. He arrived on time, did the job as he promised and charged what he estimated. I couldn’t have asked for any better service."I am happy for you to use my name - commune 22390
We have been using Vince for just over ten years – initially just for boiler services and repairs. Later he installed a complicated system of tanks and pumps to enable our spring water supply to work efficiently. He also replaced our old boiler, installing solar panels for hot water. Recently he installed mains water to the house and adapted the old system to supply water to the garden.
Vince is reliable and helpful –always ready to go the extra mile when dealing with a problem. He provides great service at a reasonable price and we have no hesitation in recommending him.
Vince fitted a wood pellet central heating boiler for us some time ago with which we have been very happy, but it has recently broken down. Vince came out on his normal rest day to repair it for us, it is now a warm house again!
I would recommend Vince for good common sense advice and honesty in a tradesman.
Testimonial - Ann Watling @ Gourin
Hello Vince and Karen,
I thought you would be pleased to know that I have just had my electricity bill and have had 626 euros paid back. That is nearly 1,000 litres of oil. That is because we are now heating the water by oil instead of electricity. Just shows that it is cheaper than electric. The heating has been great all winter. Hope you are both well. Best wishes Anne Watling
Despite really poor weather and the possibility that I had caused the problem with a relatively new wood burner install, Vince immediately turned out to help and cleared the flue blockage very quickly. Many thanks too to Karen who patiently dealt with my many emails and phone calls. I’d recommend V B PLOMBIER to anyone looking for Vince’s type of expertise.
Testimonial - Cliff & Dott
Hi Vince, Our thanks to you both for a smooth installation of our new Poele on Wednesday. We have slowly tempered the fire over the last few days, and last night we were able to use our larger logs for the first time. The fire performed excellently and drew well once the flue had warmed to its working temperature. Thank you once more for an enjoyable few hours in your company, and we will look forward to your return visit for our annual service. No doubt Karen will be sending us the bill very soon. regards Cliff & Dot
Vince - testimonial, Here are a few words that hopefully you can use on the website, firstly i’d like to let you know I have used the fire quite a bit since it was installed and I am really pleased with everything.
We recently had Vince install a wood burning stove in our holiday home in Brittany and we were very pleased with the quality of the work and service provided.
The job was quite complex and Vince came up with solutions to manage the project and complete to an excellent standard.
We were so grateful that Vince could come to our rescue so quickly, When our boiler broke down during this cold weather, the boiler is now working so much better than it ever has, it’s like brand new. Vince is a Genius! Sue @ Huelgoat
Vince installed a new oil-fired boiler and hot water tank for me, replacing a rather old and inefficient pair. He was very thorough and conscientious throughout, including re- routing pipes that had been wrapped around the old ballon d'eau chaude, leaving a much tidier configuration. He took away all the rubbish and cleaned up after his work was finished.The programmer was set up satisfactorily and he sorted out all the radiators; now I have an effective heating system and will definitely use his services again if the need arises.
We have used Vince for all our plumbing and heating needs in our French house over the past 5 years and he is always reliable, efficient and totally honest.
How many plumbers can you call when you are on your own in the winter in France in the dark when your boiler breaks down and they turn up in half an hour to sort it? Well, none in France, except for Vince.
What a nice guy, I can call him from uk and he will appear at my house with key holder and sort the problems out. Totally reliable, friendly and reasonably priced. Thank You Vince
Testimonial - Karen and John Scanlon - Plélauff
VB Plombier provided quality written quotations with full insurance for the installation of new flue liner and a new boiler heating system with hot water cylinder. The work was carried out on the day agreed and installation was of the highest quality/professionalism. On completion of installations a full detailed induction of how the system works ( boiler/water) was carried out by VB. All work areas were left clean & tidy and the whole operation was made a pleasant experience for us. I would have no hesitation in recommending VB Plombier for all plumbing/heating installation and with their back up guarantee to give you that peace of mind.
Always a great job best thing we did and a great professional

V B plombier have installed two woodburning stoves at our property. We received good advice on what we required, excellent service on the installations of stoves and new flues, also on going servicing. We would highly recommend V B Plombier.
Testimonial - Herb Abraham - Plélauff 22570
Had my woodburner fitted by VB Plombier (date…)..everything went to plan.Arrived on time,swept the chimney and fitted all ancillaries before installing the burner. We couldn’t be happier with the service provided and the price was as expected and not expensive by any means. I would definitely recommend VB Plombier! First class service and a nice guy too!
Hi Karen Please will you be kind enough to let the ‘Boss’ know that following 2 fires for the last couple of evenings and with strong winds - No soot falls ! Yeh Great - so clean bill of health for his workmanship. Another satisfied customer. Kindest regards to you both
I had oil fired central heating and a new hot water system installed in our four bedroom house. I asked Vince for a devis which I accepted. We agreed a time and he worked quickly and cleanly never seeming to stop. Vince is professional, courteous and helpful and did the work on time and on budget. I am delighted with the work Vince has done and can highly recommend him.
Customer Testimonial — Recently I had the misfortune of having to replace my boiler. An expensive item by all accounts and one that I didn’t expect to have at this time. It’s not easy finding a good heating engineer in France and one that will visit fairly quickly. However we were extremely lucky in already having Vince’s phone number, so how lucky were we! He was recommended to us in the first place. A very busy Vince managed to arrange a visit and gave us a quote to replace the boiler. At our convenience work commenced and a new hot water system and boiler fitted. I expected a lot of upheaval,but there was none. Vince worked very hard,made no mess and has done an excellent job. I would not hesitate to recommend him. If I should have need of help again in the future, I will be ringing Vince first knowing I have every confidence in him to do a good job.
Customer Testimonial “As the owner of a property in Huelgoat who lives overseas, the central heating boiler in my house suffered a catastrophic failure some months ago. I contacted various central heating engineers to determine what caused the failure and to obtain a quotation to rectify the root cause and to replace the severely damaged boiler. Vince promptly responded and informed me that there had been a water leak, he found one under the house, which caused the system to leak out all the water and the boiler had continued running which caused irreparable damage to the boiler. He then sourced a new boiler which offered the most cost effective option compared to the other quotations I received. On accepting his quotation, he carried out the work with minimum delay and remained in the house for long enough to ensure that there was no chance of a repeated failure. I can only give Vince my highest recommendations as a true professional and for a job well done.” (If you want to pass on my e-mail address to potential customers I would be more than happy to pass on my recommendations. Best wishes, Chris Dower

VB Plombier recently replaced our oil fired boiler and hot water system. As pensioners our money is important so to receive great service, quality products at a competitive price was more than we could have expected. Already booked in for our annual service which we will combine with the chimney being swept, as for after service due to the professionalism of the fitting not needed yet.

Many thanks to Vince Boon who recently installed a replacement wood burning stove for my husband and me at Corlay.
The work was done efficiently and in a timely manner.
We are very satisfied with the outcome and the fire is working very much to our satisfaction.
We would certainly consider Vince should we need work carried out in the future, of an appropriate nature.
Dave and Heather Sheppard
Testimonial - Simon & Emma Baker
Vince has been a lifesaver since we bought our property in France.
He went out of his way to keep our (very) old boiler running and when it did finally give up the ghost he was there to advise on the way forward.
The whole process from quote to commissioning was seamless (with excellent communication via Karen) and we now have a smaller, quieter, safer and far more efficient system that we'll be able to rely on for years to come.
We'd recommend him in a heartbeat.
Simon and Emma Baker.

Testimonial - Nadya Huston - Huelgoat
Vince Boon and his team are very professional, efficient, and caring towards their clients. Their quotes are fair, their scheduling is fully dependable, and their standard of workmanship is impeccable. The quality of equipment that Vince installs is top notch, and his attention to details in his work (which other professionals had ignored) is laudable, creating a much better finished product and performance. He changed my heating system for my whole house and now not only is it working better than the old system, it's actually costing me only one fifth of what I paid before to heat my house. And the heat is actually better and more consistent, and the system is completely whisper quiet. In addition, Vince is an absolutely wonderful human being, who takes pride in his work and really cares that one’s system functions perfectly. He stands behind his work 100%, so one really can rest easy with full peace of mind that one is in good hands.
Thank you so, so much Vince and Karen,
