Why you should always hire a Gas Safe registered engineer

It's always advised to hire a Gas Safe registered engineer when getting a new boiler installed or having your current boiler serviced. Chalmers Gas has compiled a list of reasons why hiring a gas safe engineer is so critical!


What is the Gas Safe Register, and what does it mean? 

The Gas Safe registry is a list of engineers who have completed their training, are qualified, and follow all applicable laws and regulations. You'll be pleased to learn that Chalmers Gas is Gas Safe registered, so you can rest assured that you're in good hands!  Remember that all gas engineers are required by law to be on the Gas Safe Register.

Safety 

Gas Safe qualified professionals are trained to do safe gas work and to spot any problems while installing, repairing, or maintaining gas equipment, ensuring the safety of you and your family. 

Because carbon monoxide (the gas inside your appliances) is incredibly combustible and hazardous if inhaled, the individual you hire to install your boiler must know what they're doing and have the necessary Gas Safe certification. Trust the Triangle instead of cutting corners.

According to Gas Safe Register, unauthorised fitters who aren't adequately qualified complete roughly 1.1 million gas jobs each year. Households are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires, and explosions as a result of this. 

Many of these unauthorised fitters were hired solely on the basis of word of mouth. The credentials of the fitter had not been checked in any of the situations. According to the Health and Safety Executive, 22 people have died and almost 1,000 have been injured as a result of gas accidents in the last three years.

Quality 

At Chalmers Gas, all of our engineers' work is verified and assessed on a regular basis, ensuring that you receive a professional service that is executed to the highest standards and fits your needs.

The List is constantly updated

You'll be relieved to learn that the Gas Safe registry is updated on a regular basis, allowing you to double-check that any engineer you hire is gas safe registered.
