Why Hire a Gas Safe Registered Engineer November 07, 2019 Whilst we’d wager that many of you have heard of the term ‘Gas Safe-registered’, the chances are that not all of you know exactly what this means. In simple terms, this term refers to gas engineers who are approved and accredited to carry out works on heating systems and appliances, including boilers, cookers, fires and more. The Gas Safe Register replaced the renowned CORGI regulations on April 1st 2009, and this document holds details of every single engineer who can provide safe and complaint work nationwide. But why exactly should you hire a Gas Safe-registered engineer? Here are some of the key points to keep in mind: The Gas Safe Register is More Than a List of Engineers Unsurprisingly, the Gas Safe register is more than just a list of qualified engineers, as it also serves as an active body that works hard to promote safe and efficient work practices within the gas industry. So, not only can you refer to the Gas Safe register when checking the credentials of an engineer, but this body is also responsible for investigating any complaints that are made in relation to unsafe work practices. In this respect, hiring a Gas Safe-registered engineer provides an added layer of protection for home-owners, who can raise complaints and take direct action in instances where a poor standard of workmanship has been carried out. Hiring a Gas Safe Engineer Can Save Your Life The risk associated with hiring engineers who aren’t on the Gas Safe register should not be underestimated, as the poor standard of work that ensues could well prove fatal in some instances. For example, a poorly fitted boiler could easily leak noxious fumes and carbon monoxide, which can lead to death when people experience exposure over a prolonged period of time. Conversely, you can rest assured that a Gas Safe-registered engineer will install new boilers and heating systems safely and efficiently, minimising your risk and delivering genuine value for your hard-earned money. This Can Also Help you to Save Money You should also note that Gas Safe-registered engineers are highly-trained in the latest techniques and practices, which in turn ensures that all installations meet the prevailing standards for efficiency as well as safety. This should minimise waste and help to optimise the performance of your boiler, lowering your consumption and monthly energy bills going forward. A skilled and efficient installation should also enhance the longevity of your boiler, which is important given how much modern, A-rated units can cost.
