Engineer but by using Joe you may be risking your family’s life. It’s very important that you use a
Registered Gas Safe Engineer for you summer boiler service and any other gas work.
Every Gas Safe Engineer carries a Gas Safe Card with them, before they start work on your boiler service ask to see the card, if they refuse or say they have left it at home, then ask them to leave. It’s your right, but the main thing is it’s your life at risk. Once you look at the card, check it’s in date, all gas safe card are renewed every march, no in between, then turn the card over and check to see if they are registered for the type of work you want done. Someone can be registered for lets say gas meters, but it does not mean they can carry out a boiler service. If you have any doubt, go to the gas safe website and carry out further checks. It’s better to be safe 100% and not 95%.
So now while the weather is nice and hot why not book up to have a boiler service carried out. When making your booking try to give the person on the phone as much information as possible about your boiler IE make and model, the boiler age if you know it, any problem you may have been experiencing. Ask the them if they have worked on you make of boiler before. All this information helps both you and the service engineer. Also while the engineer is at your property carrying out a boiler service ask them to do a gas tightness test for you, this will establish that your gas pipes are leak free.
