Hiring a tradesman for a gas safety check
Gas safety checks might be an obligation, but that does not mean finding someone to perform them needs to be arduous. The Plentific website can quickly generate a bespoke contact list of the best tradesmen in your local area that offer the services and expertise you need for your job. You will also get quick access to customer ratings and reviews to help you compare your options and make your final hire with confidence.
What do you need to know about gas safety checks and certifications?
The thing to know about gas safety checks is that they are mandatory: by law, any gas appliances or flues in a property should be checked by a Gas Safe Registered plumber or heating engineer at least once every 12 months. This is not just about safety, as having the checks done will also ensure that your appliances are running efficiently, helping you to reduce your bills.
To perform a gas safety check and award a certificate a tradesman is required to be on the Gas Safe Register. They may also be a part of a national tradesmans’ organisation, which is a great sign as such groups typically have high standards and codes of conduct that are enforced on members. Take the time to ask about their qualifications and experience, as well as their previous clients; a professional should be able to readily provide feedback from completed jobs. Finally, ensure that your tradesman is fully protected against liabilities and accidental damage.
