Specialist engineers are trained to adhere to the latest safety standards and regulations.
An experienced engineer can offer invaluable advice on maintenance, ensuring your boiler remains in prime condition.
Expert Installation by Specialist Engineers
In the UK, only engineers who are on the Gas Safe Register are legally allowed to install gas boilers or carry out any work on gas appliances.
The Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1 April 2010.
Here’s what you need to know:
Gas Safe Registered Engineers: Before hiring someone to install a gas boiler, you should check if they are on the Gas Safe Register. Every Gas Safe registered engineer has an ID card that confirms their qualifications and the type of gas work they are allowed to do. You can check an engineer’s registration status by visiting the Gas Safe Register website or by calling them.
When installing a gas boiler, the engineer must adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions and any relevant Building Regulations. After the installation, the engineer will provide a Building Regulations Certificate, which confirms that the work was carried out to the required standard.
- Regular Checks and Servicing
After installation, it’s crucial to have your gas boiler serviced annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer. This will ensure it’s operating safely and efficiently.
It’s illegal for anyone not on the Gas Safe Register to carry out gas work, including installing a gas boiler. Doing so not only puts you and others at risk but can also result in prosecution, heavy fines, and invalidation of your home insurance.
Always ensure you use a Gas Safe registered engineer for all gas-related work in your home to guarantee the safety of your household and to comply with the law.
