When a service provider or tradesperson arrives at your door in Guildford, it’s reassuring to see some identification. In regard to services like boiler repairs, boiler servicing, central heating servicing or any other work related to gas appliances, this rings especially true. Due to their method of operation, by law, only plumbers and gas engineers on the Gas Safe Register can undertake any type of work on boilers and gas appliances. Any individual on the register, including the personnel at CSR Gas & Plumbing Services, carries the Gas Safe logo on their ID card.
But what exactly is the Gas Safe Register? Why is it so important for gas engineers and plumbers to hold this certification?
If you would like to schedule your own boiler servicing or boiler repairs, please call us on 01483 604 536 or 07754 408 712. Our wider services also include central heating servicing and general plumbing work.
In 2009, CORGI, the then gas registration body, became the Gas Safe Register. Essentially, for those more familiar with CORGI, the Gas Safe Register is the same body under a different name. As the official record of all plumbers, gas engineers and companies qualified to work on gas appliances, the Gas Safe Register provides a complete list of every legal option for boiler servicing, boiler repairs and any related central heating servicing. Quite simply, if someone isn’t on the list, their work can be considered unsafe and unlawful.
Safety remains the primary issue at hand. The Gas Safe Register protects Guildford homeowners, as well as their properties, from sub-standard gas work. When it comes to gas appliances, unsafe work isn’t simply inconvenient or ugly; the results can be fatal.
Just as you wouldn’t want someone driving your car without a license, you shouldn’t let anyone without Gas Safe accreditation undertake work on your boiler, however minor the work may seem. Like all registered individuals, our plumbers and gas engineers undergo rigorous training and testing to guarantee the highest and safest standards.
Property owners should also note, Gas Safe registration isn’t equivalent to membership with a trade body. Certified plumbers and gas engineers haven’t paid a joining fee. Instead, they have demonstrated outstanding proficiency in line with qualifying criteria.
With the Gas Safe logo on their ID cards, our plumbers and gas engineers provide our clients in Guildford with the ultimate peace of mind. It confirms our full compliance with industry standards, a vital reassurance when it comes to central heating servicing, boiler servicing or boiler repairs.
