Yes, it’s a bit of a mystery this one! Something of a museum piece, but still working efficiently according to the customer. It is some age as well, the customer told me that it was already in the address when his parents and him moved into the address in the late 1940’s! The customer said that he only burns smokeless fuel on the stove and that to his mind he can hardly remember it ever going wrong. The boiler heats all the hot water in the property and a number of radiators and is on 24 seven 365 days a year! But what make and model is it, as you can see in the photo, the name plate is missing from the stove. The customer said that he seemed to remember that it was a Rayburn?
My name is Paddy McKeown, I am a retired police officer (Detective Sergeant – Metropolitan Police), turned chimney sweep. I have completed training with ‘The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps’, and Rod Tech UK (Power Sweeping).
I have built up a wealth of practical knowledge and experience, and have invested in a range of sweeping equipment including CCTV equipment to examine and record the interior condition of flues/chimneys and so can diagnose and advise on all sorts of chimney problems and carry out minor repairs if necessary.
I sweep cleanly and efficiently all open fire places, as well as wood-burning stoves, Aga’s, Rayburn’s Alpha’s, Parkray’s, Baxi’s, inglenooks and biomass boilers.
Put simply, I offer an inclusive sweeping package that will guarantee your safety whilst you get the best out of your appliance or open fire.
