Should I look for a new plumber?

I am wondering because of this issue with the pressure in my system. We have had our plumber in several times this year and last to ask why we were having such problems with our steam heat -- he did some work on the radiators, replacing vents and valves and some piping, but apparently never bothered looking at the pressuretrol. When I called him up yesterday to ask about the pressure he said, "Oh, it should never be so high as that! You need to lower the pressuretrol!" -- which I had figured out from reading articles here and the answers to the question I posted here. But now it is seeming to me like this ought to have been one of the first things he checked last year when we called him in. Any thoughts?
