Rachel Broad and Ian Fellows employed an unregistered gas fitter, for the removal of a boiler from a downstairs toilet, and the installation of new gas boiler in an upstairs children’s bedroom/playroom. They also had the installation of a duel fuel cooker in the kitchen as part of building work involving the extension of the property. These appliances also involved the installation of gas pipe work. Lee Lawrence from Amber Plumbing Solutions was using the Gas Safe Register logo on its website and business cards falsely claiming to be registered. What they didn’t know was they were working as illegal gas works and were breaking the law.

What Is The Best Boiler
This is the question that we get asked a lot, what is the best boiler?
Choosing a boiler is all about the customers requirements, do they want to just replace like for like, or convert to another type of system, say to a combination system, and also the budget available.
There are many types of boilers to choose from these days, you have the open vented boiler, the system boiler and the combination boiler. There is also a 4 pipe system boiler that has been designed to give total control over hot water and heating.
We often leave our boiler to work without paying it much attention. It’s only when a problem strikes, that we really take notice. However, often these problems can be minor, so don’t reach straight for the cheque book and buy a new boiler without looking at the points in this video.
