Heating ServicesAre you getting the most out of your gas-powered boiler? If not, the comfort of your indoors isn’t optimal, and during winter, it can get unbearably cold in there. However, this does not have to be always the case. At least not when you’ve got a Gas Safe engineer taking care of your heating system! Below are the day-to-day duties and tasks which a bona fide gas engineer carries out as part of his overall gas services:

New Gas Boiler Installation

A gas engineer is responsible for installing a new gas boiler. If you just built a new home, you may count on the technician to set up the perfect gas-powered heating system. The gas technician also comes in handy when you need to upgrade your gas heater. Such an upgrade may be necessary if your old system is not energy-efficient. Once you’ve engaged a gas engineer to help set up a new heating system, this is what they’ll do:

  1. Visit your site to assess your heating requirements
  2. Help you select the perfect gas boiler for your home
  3. Provide a quote for the entire installation
  4. Install a custom gas-powered heating system
  5. Gas Heating System Repair/Maintenance

A gas-fired hot water system entails many essential components, including the boiler. All the parts must perform optimally to achieve your preferred heating comfort at home. But to optimise the heating system, a gas engineer has to help keep all critical components in top condition. They usually do it through routine and emergency repair/maintenance. Typical gas boiler system problems that an engineer can fix include:

  1. Poor or no heating at all, which lack of boiler power, such as due to a blown out fuse or tripped circuit breaker, may cause
  2. Low water level
  3. A faulty circulator
  4. Leaking pressure-relief valve
  5. Radiators that fail to heat

System Inspection and Safety Certification

A Gas Safe registered engineer should inspect all your gas-powered systems and appliances, including the boiler. Not checking the condition of such systems may expose you and your family to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Likewise, it’s imperative to have all gas pipelines inspected along with the assessment of gas safety. If you’re a landlord, regulations demand that you have a gas safety check too.

The purpose of such an inspection is to verify that you’re complying with current laws. If a Gas Safe-recognised engineer finds that you’re servicing your heating system as per manufacturer’s instructions, you get a gas safety certificate. Additionally, you may request an inspection if you smell gas and suspect a leak. In that case, a competent gas engineer will check and identify the source of the leakage. They’ll fix the issue in a matter of hours to keep you and your family safe.

A gas engineer is your go-to pro when you need to keep your gas-powered heating equipment functioning optimally. The professional specializes in the installation as well as repair of heating systems. You’ll also need the engineer to conduct a gas safety check and determine that there are no risks. Evidently, your home comfort and safety are contingent on the proper maintenance of your gas heating systems and components.
