Commercial Gas Engineers in London
If you need your gas boiler serviced, repaired, replaced and installed, you’ll need to hire an engineer who is Gas Safe registered; never hire an “imposter” and never try to service any gas appliances on your own because if you try you could be putting yourself, your family and your home at risk of carbon monoxide pointing, explosions and more.
What is the Gas Safe Register?
It’s the United Kingdom’s, Isle of Man and Guernsey’s, official gas registration program, chosen by the applicable Health and Safety Authority for each region. According to the law, all commercial gas engineers are required to be listed on the Gas Safe Register. Investigations carried out by the program have shown that unqualified gas fitters perform a quarter of a million illegal gas appliance/boiler jobs every year, performing the work with limited skills and the necessary qualifications to safely work on gas appliances. The Gas Safe Register believes that a higher percentage of illegal “gas fitters” market their services in local newspapers and online because in these cases fewer confirmations of registration are carried out.
Confirm that your Commercial Engineer is Gas Safe Registered
Always confirm that the gas engineer you’re considering is on the register before hiring them to carry out a gas related job for you. In addition, when you meet with the engineer you’re considering, make sure to ask for their Gas Safe Register ID card before moving forward. The gas work carried out by registered gas engineers includes installing, inspecting, and/or servicing gas boilers and other gas appliances.

Only Gas Safe registered engineers have the expertise an experience to perform gas related appliance work safely. These engineers also retrain on a regular basis, ensuring that they are up to date with the latest technologies regarding boilers and appliances.
