We are all familiar with the role of a plumber, but not all of us are aware of the regulations and requirements that need to be met in order for a plumber to safely and legally work on gas appliances in your home.
A gas safe plumber is responsible for the repair, replacement, installation and servicing of all gas appliances in your property. Gas safety is important and should be a priority for engineers who work with gas appliances and equipment. Every gas safe engineer will have an ID card to show that they are Gas Safe Registered.
Plumbing companies that offer gas related services should also have a gas safe registered logo on their website – as we do at KS. Without this, they cannot legally work on gas appliances in your home or any other building.
Dangers of not hiring a Gas Safe Registered Engineer
Ovens, cookers, boilers and fireplaces that run on gas need to be maintained and installed correctly. The consequences of not having your appliances properly installed and maintained could cause gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. This puts everyone in the property in danger.
Along with this, the leaked gas can cause fires and explosions. For this reason, it is always best to contact a plumber that you know is Gas Safe Registered, so you can avoid the dangerous and expensive consequences.
How to Find A Gas Safe Engineer
Finding an engineer or plumbing and heating company for your home is as easy as asking a family friend, however making sure that they are qualified before they start working on your property is essential.
A Gas Safe Registered plumber will have a Gas Safe Register ID card that you should always ask to see. Gas Safe Registered means that the engineer has been checked to make sure that they are competent and qualified to work legally and safely with gas and gas appliances.
The Gas Safe Register ID will have the name, a photograph and a unique license number on it as well as a list of the range of qualifications they have that allows them to carry out certain gas installation services.
Benefits of Gas Safe Plumbers
The main benefit is safety. With gas safe plumbers, you can be reassured that the work being carried out will be done properly in accordance to the regulation of gas safety laws.
