Why Should I Hire a Gas Safe engineer?

There are many engineers out there, but you should ONLY hire one that's on the Gas Safe Register...

What is a Gas Safe engineer?

To be ‘Gas Safe’, an engineer must be on the Gas Safe Register. This ensures they have been correctly trained and are qualified to work safely and efficiently on gas appliances. When joining the register, engineers are given strict guidelines to follow to ensure you, as a customer, always receive the highest quality of work.
The Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI in 2009 with an updated set of guidelines.

Gas Safe Engineer = Guaranteed safety

Boilers and other gas appliances have the potential to be dangerous (fatal even), if incorrect and unsafe work is carried out. There is a risk of carbon monoxide leaking out- a poisonous, colourless and odourless gas. Carbon monoxide can be deadly if you are exposed to high levels of it, making it crucial that you only let our trained, gas safe engineers work on your appliances.
As well as the risk of gas leaks, there is also a risk of fires and explosions. These can occur suddenly and without warning- especially if you have had an unqualified engineer working on your boiler/ cooker etc.
When on the Gas Safe Register, engineers have to ensure any work carried out meets all relevant health and safety laws and regulations. To ensure safety for you and your family, it is crucial to only hire our gas safe engineers- your safety is our priority!

Gas Safe Engineer = Guaranteed satisfaction

Our gas safe engineers are fully qualified and always try to ensure customer satisfaction with every job they carry out. However, if for any reason you were not satisfied, the Gas Safe Register makes it easy to share any problems and get them resolved quickly.
Being on the register means engineers have to co operate with any investigations carried out as a result of bad feedback. As a result, all complaints are thoroughly dealt with to ensure you, as a customer, have not wasted any money.
Hiring our gas safe engineers gives you extra peace of mind to know that, if you aren’t satisfied, something will be done about it.
