Why hire a Gas Safe registered engineer?

When getting a new boiler installed or having your current boiler serviced, it's always a good idea to employ a Gas Safe certified engineer. United Heating has developed a list of reasons why you should hire a gas safe engineer!


What does the Gas Safe Register consist of, and what does it signify? 

The Gas Safe registration is a list of engineers who have invested their time, are qualified, and adhere to all applicable laws and regulations. United Heating is Gas Safe registered, so you can rest easy knowing you're in excellent hands! Remember that all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register by law.

Safety

Gas Safe qualified specialists are trained to perform safe gas work and identify any problems while installing, repairing, or maintaining gas equipment, assuring your and your family's safety. 

Because carbon monoxide (the gas inside your equipment) is extremely flammable and dangerous if inhaled, the person you employ to install your boiler needs to know what they're doing and be Gas Safe certified. Instead of cutting corners, trust the Triangle.

Unauthorised fitters who aren't fully qualified do nearly 1.1 million gas jobs each year, according to Gas Safe Register. As a result, households are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires, and explosions. 

Many of these unlicensed installers were hired simply on the basis of word-of-mouth recommendations. In none of the circumstances had the fitter's credentials been checked. In the last three years, 22 people have died and almost 1,000 have been injured as a result of gas incidents, according to the Health and Safety Executive. So always. make sure to check your engineer's credentials to keep yourself safe.

Quality 

All engineers' work is regularly verified and analysed, ensuring that you receive a professional service that meets your needs and is completed to the highest standards. 

The Gas Safe registry is updated on a regular basis, allowing you to double-check that any engineer you hire is gas safe registered.
