Now, more than ever, companies providing boiler installation in North London and across the UK have to go through rigorous inspection from the authorities responsible for gas safety. The reason for this is simple. 2 out of 5 of all fires which have decimated homes in the UK were due to incorrectly placed boilers, poorly sealed gas lines or slovenly work standards.
If you are looking at getting a new boiler in your home or property, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the basic qualifications required of the boiler installation company who will provide this service to you.
The Gas Safe Register
The Gas Safe Register was formed in 2010 in the UK to replace CORGI gas standards. This is now a mandatory qualification for all heating engineers looking to install boilers in homes or deal with gas installations.
Every Gas Safe Register installer is issued a unique identification card, with a serial number connected to his name and status. You can verify if your service company is registered by searching for the Gas Safe Register online and typing in the name of the boiler installer or company.
If we use the area of North London for our example, you can see on the search results that a large percentage of the companies or tradesmen offering boiler installation in North London do not show their Gas Safe credentials. These North London boiler installation companies should be avoided as they will usually try to entice you into a service by providing great discounts, compensating for their lack of qualifications.
