About Greenwich Heating
My name is josh and I’m the owner of Greenwich heating solutions Ltd, your local Gas Central Heating Installation, service and Repair Company. Since starting the business it has been my vision to build a company grounded in my own values of honesty, reliability and a real passion for the work we do. My staff and I do not see/ treat you as “just another customer”, and we are not “just a central heating company”, my belief is that the client – business relationship goes much deeper than that.
A little bit about me:
I left sixth form (crown woods, Eltham) with A-levels in Law and Accountancy. I went on to Greenwich University to study business, as well as taking a course in accountancy at home. It didn’t take long for me to realise that I had made a pretty big mistake… I had never been more bored. A spur of the moment snowboarding trip that, my now wife, convinced me to go on with my university opened my eyes. I almost didn’t go, but I did and I was able to experience something amazing that I otherwise wouldn’t have. I realised that if I wanted to make a change, it needed to happen now. A couple of weeks later I was starting a job as an apprentice central heating installer, working for my Uncle and I’ve never looked back. Thanks to my wife I found something that not only was I good at but I enjoyed it so much!
The job was extremely difficult for me at first as I had never really worked with my hands before, but I was enjoying learning the ins and outs of heating systems. I took pieces of copper home to practice bends and soldering (possibly could have lost my job for that one, but I needed to learn it all, it became an obsession).
After 2 years as an apprentice, a part of a 3 man team installing 5 full central heating systems per week (boiler, radiators and pipework), I felt I had enough experience, skill and knowledge to take my gas course. 1 year later I was a fully qualified gas installer, which was perfect timing really as I qualified just before my son, Mikey, was born.
