    Why you should use a Gas Engineer

    When home renovation needs to be done, or an appliance stops working, it is always tempting to try and cut costs by doing some of your own DIY. Although there are some areas that can easily be sorted, there are many that can only be fixed by a professional tradesperson. One of these areas is when work needs to be carried out on gas appliances or pipework.

    A registered gas engineer should be used to install all gas appliances within the home and be used should any fault be found or suspected. According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE), all ‘gas appliances, flues and pipework’ should be installed and routinely inspected by a Gas Safe Engineer.

    When wanting to install new gas appliances, it is essential that you hire a registered engineer to guarantee that it is installed properly and to avoid potential gas leaks and other serious issues, such as a gas explosion or carbon monoxide leak.

    What Should I do if I smell Gas?

    If you think you can smell gas, stop what you are doing immediately and inspect the local area. If upon inspection you suspect that there is a gas leak, then open all doors and windows in order to ventilate the area. If possible, switch off your house gas supply and call the National Grid’s Emergency Gas team on 0800 111 999.

    How do I know if my Gas Engineer is Registered?

    As all gas engineers are legally required to join the Gas Safe Register (previously CORGI), you need to make sure that any tradesperson visiting your property is able to provide proof that they are registered.

    When the gas engineer arrives at your property to carry out work, before allowing them inside, ask to see their Gas Safe ID Card. The photo ID will contain the engineer’s name, company name, registration and license number, along with dates of validity. If you suspect it to be a fake, you can check the validity online before allowing work to be carried out. Always be on the safe side and if unable to view the Gas Safe ID Card, then do not allow the tradesperson to carry out any gas work.

    There are routine checks made by the Gas Safe Register to ensure that no one is operating without a license, but if you suspect someone of operating off the Register, you can report them here.

    If you are looking for a recommended gas engineer in Bristol, we have the right tradesperson for you. Not only are all of our gas engineers Gas Safe Registered, but they also vetted and checked so we know that we can recommend them for their safe and reliable work.
