Having any work carried out on a gas appliance in your home,
you must use someone who is gas safe registered,
This is the law in the United Kingdom, other countries may have similar regulations.
the only person who can carry out this work,
is a gas safe registered engineer - plumber,
if one of your friends tells you they have a friend,
who can service the boiler and it will be cheaper for you,
they also have to be registered for the gas appliance they may work on,
All gas safe engineers carry an identification card,
which you as the gas user should always ask to see,
on this card will be the picture of the person who is registered.
You will also see the gas safe registration and licence number along with the expiry date.
On the back of the card you will find details of what gas appliance the engineer can work on,
this is very important to check over,
it also states what gas they can work on, be it natural or LPG gas.
lets say you want the boiler serviced you should check the card and look for boilers,
if boilers are not on the card then they cannot service your boiler.
The expiry date of all members is 31st March,
So if someone presents a card out of date,
they are no longer registered to work on any gas appliance.
they are not allowed to work unless they have their card with them.
You will find out everything about what gas appliance the engineer can work on.
If any of his details don't tally up,
then it's your responsibility as a gas user to find someone who is fully qualified for the work to be carried out.
Landlords who rents out their properties,
must by law have a gas safety check carried out every 12 months without fail,
this involves checking any gas appliance connected to the supply is safe to use.
Once the safety check is completed, the engineer will issue a certificate with his findings.
With rental properties, should a new tenant move in with 6 months left on the safety certificate,
it is the landlords responsibility to have the property checked over again and a new certificate issued,
the reason you don't know what the previous tenant may have done to any gas appliance or the supply.
There are big penalties being given out by the courts and this includes being sent to prison for anyone breaking these gas regulations,
should something happen where you need to make a claim on your home insurance,
you may find your insurance is void
This is because you have used someone who was not qualified to work on your gas appliance.
Safety is very important when it comes to working on gas,
don't ever try and fit a gas appliance yourself, you may think it's easy to do,
it may be, but other safety checks need to be carried out as well.
