Why Hire a Gas Safe registered engineer?

What does the Gas Safe Register entail, and what does it signify?  

The Gas Safe register is a list of engineers who have completed their education, are qualified, and adhere to all applicable laws and regulations. DC Heating & Plumbing are Gas Safe registered, so you can rest easy knowing you're in safe hands! Remember that all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register by law.


Safe competent personnel are trained to undertake safe gas work and identify any problems while installing, repairing, or maintaining gas equipment, assuring your and your family's safety. 

Because carbon monoxide (the gas inside your equipment) is extremely flammable and dangerous if inhaled, the person you employ to install your boiler needs to know what they're doing and be Gas Safe registered. Instead of cutting corners, trust the Triangle. 

Unauthorised fitters who aren't fully qualified do nearly 1.1 million gas jobs each year, according to Gas Safe Register. Carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires, and explosions are all threats to households that risk not being Gas Safe.

Many of these unlicensed installers were hired simply on the basis of word-of-mouth recommendations. In none of the circumstances had the fitter's credentials been checked. In the last three years, 22 people have died and almost 1,000 have been injured as a result of gas incidents, according to the Health and Safety Executive.


All of our engineers' work is verified and inspected on a regular basis at DC Heating & Plumbing, guaranteeing that you receive a professional service that meets your demands and meets the highest standards of safety.

The Gas Safe registry is updated on a regular basis, allowing you to double-check that any engineer you hire is gas safe registered. Please contact us using the information provided below if you'd like to learn more about why you should engage a Gas Safe registered engineer.
