The Gas Safe Register is the official registration scheme in the UK for gas safety. It’s for gas engineers who install and maintain gas appliances like boilers, cookers, and fires. They took over from CORGI in 2009.
Housewarm on the Gas Safe Register
Housewarms Gas Safe registration number is 533062. If you can not find a certain company or engineer in their database, then they do not have the correct qualifications to register, and therefore, can not carry out any gas work safely or legally.
From boiler servicing to gas safety checks, getting a Gas Safe registered heating engineer to do your work is so important for safety mainly but also to make your appliance installations are legal.
If, for example, you get a boiler installation with a 7-year warranty from someone who is not Gas Safe registered, then your warranty will be void and more than likely your boiler will not have been installed safely.
If you try to make a claim for a boiler repair from the boiler manufacturer, you will not have any cover and you will have to pay for any parts and labour to get it repaired out of your own pocket.
So you might think you were getting a good deal when you got a cheap boiler installation, but your new boiler installation cost could go through the roof when you eventually have to pay a registered gas engineer to put it right.
Check up on your Local Gas Engineer
Go to the Gas Safe Register website for more information and check to see if a gas engineer company, or individual heating engineers, are legally registered to carry out any kind of work on your gas appliances.
