What to look for when choosing a gas engineer

With winter fast approaching, problems with boilers and other gas appliances are more likely to occur during these colder months. Outdated, sluggish boilers are also less efficient, which means your home or business premises won’t be as warm as you’d like it to be and energy bills will be higher than they need to be.

Whether you need a boiler serviced, a gas appliance fixed or a completely new heating system installed, it is not always easy deciding who to choose to complete the job to your satisfaction. Here are some tips to think about when choosing a gas engineer.

Ensure that the gas engineer you choose is fully qualified and experienced in working with a wide range of different heating installations and equipment. If you are having a new boiler fitted, look to see if there are any warranties available. This is not just a sign of good quality, but it offers you protection for a period of time if the boiler breaks down. If you have a particular make or model of boiler in mind, check to see if the gas engineer is an accredited installer. Ensure that the gas engineer you use is Gas Safe Registered, so that they comply with industry regulations and guidelines.

A good gas engineer should be able to talk through the different options with you, so that the right choice is made to suit your premises and your needs, rather than what suits the gas company. It can be expensive to have a new gas appliance fitted, such as a boiler, so you should feel happy with all the details before any installation work takes place.

Great testimonials and a loyal client base speak for themselves, so if you are not sure which gas engineer to use, ask friends and family for any recommendations. Find out which area the company covers, what they offer and how quickly they can come out in an emergency.
