I’m Ian of St Albans, UK - welcome to my personal website! (Like it or not, it’s all my own work!)
Naturally, I've created it to tell you about me and what I do in the hope that some
of you will consider becoming my customer. However, I’ve also set it up to share
information - I’ve found members of the plumbing and heating community generous in
this respect so this is part of my attempt to join in.
Some pages – “Home tips” - are aimed at customers & householders, while the “Tech
Notes” contain technical information for professional colleagues or students of science
who will see basic rough & ready science used to produce results of practical value.
I'd be pleased to have suggestions, and do let me know if there's something I've
not made clear or you'd like me to add.
You can check me out on theGas Safe registerby clicking on the link below, and
entering the numbers shown, depending on whether you’re checking me as an individual
engineer or a business (sorry about the photo!):
“At present I am all day at the Laboratory, which is emerging from chaos, but is
not yet clear of gas-men, who are the laziest and most permanent of all the gods
who have been hatched under heaven” - James Clerk Maxwell

came across a blocked chimney serving a gas fire - could have been lethal - how’s
I offer: boiler repair, boiler service, gas fire repair, gas fire service, landlords’

man who does, so don’t leave, please read on.)
