Finding a heating or boiler engineer

Heating and boiler engineers are hired to install, maintain, replace and service the heating system within your home or business premises. Often, homes that require renovating have outdated central heating systems that will need removing and replacing rather than simply being repaired, and of course we have all experienced boiler troubles at the most inopportune moments. 

You will need to find a properly qualified heating engineer to install your new system and your choice should depend on the type of boiler you are having fitted.

What do you need to think about when finding a heating or boiler engineer?

Your local heating or boiler engineer will need to be a certified. You must make sure that your engineer is registered as a Gas Safe Engineer. Check that they not only come with word-of-mouth recommendations but also the appropriate paperwork so that you can confirm their background.

If your local gas engineer is registered, he will have a Gas Safe Register ID card which allows him to install, maintain and repair your central heating system. The Gas Safe team ensure that all of its members are qualified and they carry out nationwide investigations and inspections as well as educating the consumers by raising awareness of gas safety.

As well as this, ask for proof of membership with the CIPHE. CIPHE is the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineers - a professional and technical body that aims to provide a strict code of conduct for its members, as well as raising standards for customers.

What do heating or boiler engineers do?

A heating or boiler engineer is there to install, maintain or repair your heating system/boiler. Prior to this, they will need to carry out assessments and checks to ascertain the functionality and security status of your current system.

The central source of your heating can be from one of three types of systems - wet systems, warm air systems and storage heaters. A wet central heating system is when hot water is circulated through a piping system that connects to the radiators.

Warm central heating systems are appealing because they take only one day to install and is unlikely to disrupt home life as the work takes place in the heating compartment area. Also, no pipework or floorboards are affected. Warm air systems work by pulling air through a vent from outside into the home. This is then heated over a gas flame, which is circulated around the home using a duct-system.

A storage heater is an electrical heater that is mounted onto a wall and looks like a radiator. It is powered by drawing electricity at night and storing thermal energy that is then released throughout the day as needed.

How much do heating or boiler engineers cost?

Heating and boiler engineers largely charge using day rates, which are stipulated by the nature and scale of the task(s). A gas engineer could charge between £30 to £100 per hour in the day depending on the size of the company, area, reputation and the response time.
