USING AN ILLEGAL GAS FITTER COULD COST YOU THOUSANDS OR EVEN COST YOU YOUR LIFE
Don’t let this happen to you. Always use a Gas Safe registered engineer. Check the card.
Are you about to have your cooker, boiler or gas fire fixed, fitted or serviced? One in three of us trust a tradesman to do gas work based purely on the recommendation of a friend or neighbour without checking out their registration and qualifications first.
At Gas Fix we always make shaw our engineers carry there gas safe I’d card with them at all times, on request we are happy for you to view our gas safe I’d card at any time.
Remember that dangerous gas work can be deadly. Badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning
. Using an illegal gas fitter can end up costing you thousands of pounds to have fixed. Worst of all, it could put the lives of you, and your loved ones in danger.
How do I know if the gas fitter I’m using is illegal?
A quarter of a million illegal gas jobs are carried out each year . If your gas fitter is not Gas Safe registered then they are illegal. If your gas engineer is qualified and registered to do gas work in your home they will be able to show your their Gas Safe ID card.
Not all gas engineers are qualified to work on all types of gas appliance. Make sure you check the back of their ID card to make sure they are qualified to do the specific type of gas work you need. If they put in a gas fire for example, but they’re only Gas Safe registered for pipework and boilers, they are illegal.
If they work for a Gas Safe registered firm during the week and are doing private work in their spare time on the side, they are also illegal.
We are proud to be Gas Safe registered and all our gas work is carried out to current regulations,
