Why do I need a Gas Safe registered engineer?
Only a Gas Safe registered engineer is legally allowed to install, maintain, repair and service gas appliances.
A Gas Safe registered engineer is qualified to work on:
- Domestic boilers
- Gas hobs
- Gas ovens
- Gas cookers
- Gas fires
- Any other gas appliances in your home
It is a legal requirement for anyone carrying out gas work to be registered with Gas Safe Register.
The Gas Safe Register works hard to keep the general public safe. They employ a team of investigators to track down engineers who are working illegally and they also perform regular inspection of Gas Safe engineers.
As well as investigating a report of unsafe work they also tackle the task of educating consumers of gas safety. Their combined efforts are to ensure that they keep you, the general public, safe from unsafe gas installations.
How do I know if my engineer is Gas Safe registered?
It’s important that you check that any heating engineer that is carrying out any gas work in your home or business presents their Gas Safe Register ID card.
All Gas Safe registered engineers will have an ID card. Be sure to thoroughly check the ID card of any gas engineer that comes to do work in your home. It’s also important to check the engineer is qualified for the work you need doing. You can find this information on the reverse of the card.
You can find or check a Gas Safe registered engineer on the Gas Safe Register website or by:
- Calling 0800 408 5000
- Texting GAS and the engineers seven-digit licence number to 85080
We can’t stress enough how important it is to ensure that your heating engineer is Gas Safe registered otherwise you could be putting your self and your family at risk. Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.
What should I do if I have a faulty gas appliance?
If you think a gas appliance is faulty, turn it off and call us immediately on 0203 0787 5920 and we can send one of our Gas Safe Register engineers to take a look. If you feel unwell, seek medical help immediately.
As a landlord, it is required by law that all gas appliances supplied for tenants to use is maintained in a safe condition. A Gas Safe registered engineer is required to carry out a gas safety check on them every 12 months.
