    What Is A Gas Safe Registered Engineer ?

    In order for the engineer or plumber to be allowed to work with gas appliances and installations, they must be registered in the Gas Safe Register.

    The Gas Safe Register is an official register of all engineers in the United Kingdom, Guernsey and Isle of Man who are legally allowed to operate on gas equipment. These may include piped liquefied petroleum gas as well as natural gas.

    The types of appliances that can be handled by an engineer or plumber will vary based on their skills and training. Engineers and plumbers used to be registered with Corgi until the Gas Safe Register was established in 2009.

    what does a gas plumber do

    What Does a Gas Plumber Do ?

    Some plumbing projects need special knowledge. One such field is plumbing on gas pipes.

    Many households in Hampshire consider plumbing as an occupation that deals mainly in water and sewage networks facilities. But in fact, the discipline has far more to offer and gas plumbing is one of the field’s specialties.

    Since pipelines carry natural gas, if not properly built, they are potentially more dangerous than water pipes. It therefore makes sense to pick an experienced Gas Safe plumber to work in your Hampshire home.

    A Gas Safe plumber is a registered plumbing contractor usually from the UK Gas Safe Registry.

    Gas Safe plumbers aren’t usually travelling plumbers, and definitely aren’t apprentices who have to work under supervision. These individuals are experts and certified in this specialised field.

    Any thoughts on gas plumbing as a DIY project should be promptly reconsidered. Carrying out such projects without proper training and certification will endanger your personal health, along with the safety of your family (and maybe even your neighbours).

    Be sure to employ a truly Gas Safe certified plumber for any issues involving gas lines in your home in Hampshire, now that you know how important they are.

    Why is using a Gas Safe Registered Plumber so Important ?

    Appliances that use gas such as your boiler are completely secure when installed by a licensed engineer from Gas Safe, but may be dangerous if installed by anyone unqualified, which is why it is important that you search for the Gas Safe logo and check the credentials of the tradesman that comes to your house.

    Carbon monoxide is highly flammable and, if inhaled, is incredibly poisonous, and the person you are using to install the boiler will know what they are doing and have the Gas Safe certification to prove it.

    If you are using a professional gas safe technician, your insurance will protect you if something happens to go wrong but when you use someone without such certificates, it may invalidate your benefits.

    If you’re a landlord or a homeowner, it’s important to ensure you have a professional Gas Safe fitter and an industry-approved appliance.

    All of our experts at Hampshire Plumbers are completely Gas Safe certified to fit and service your boiler, and to mount and operate your central heating system.

    Don’t cut corners, trust the plumbers of Hampshire Plumbers to get the job done right.

    How Can I Check if a Plumber is Gas Safe Registered ?

    If you want to be confident as a customer that your engineer or plumber is a licensed Gas Safe technician, then there are a range of ways to do so. You can go to the website of the Gas Safe registry, choose check an engineer option and then enter the number on the engineer’s card – that is the license number that you can find on the ID card of the engineer.

    A photograph of the engineer and descriptions of their credentials can also be shown on the website.

    Additionally, you can SMS ‘Gas’ to 85080 along with:

    •         the company identification number of a corporation to check if they are registered with Gas
    •         the Seven-digit license number of an engineer to check if they are registered with Gas Safe

    You will then get a text verifying whether they are on the register or not.

    We can’t emphasise enough how crucial it is to make sure that your plumber is certified with Gas Safe otherwise you and your family could be at serious risk.

    Gas appliances which are improperly installed and poorly serviced can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Landlord’s Gas Safety Certificates

    A Landlord’s Gas Security Certificate is compulsory by law to be kept for all residential rental properties in the UK where gas appliances are present. Gas Protection (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 protect the provision.

    The legislation requires annual tests to be carried out on all gas appliances in a leased property with a gas safety record being completed and a copy being given to tenants.

    Gas safety records, also referred to as CP12, are to be completed only by engineers who have to be registered with the Gas Safe Register scheme.

    Need a Gas Safety Certificate

    Landlord Gas Safety Checks in Hampshire

    We carry out gas safety checks and provide landlords with gas safety certificates to property owners in Hampshire and in all nearby areas. The gas safety certificates we offer will show that both the gas supply and the appliances are safe to use in your home or rental property.

    It is your duty, as a landlord, to ensure that your rental property complies with the new gas regulations. When you are a landlord and you have rental property you have a legal obligation to ensure that your property undergoes regular gas safety tests to receive a certificate of protection for the landlord gas. This certificate of gas protection must be renewed every 12 months and will protect your gas supply and appliances.

    When you need a gas protection certificate for your house or rental property, whether it’s a brand new one or if your existing one is about to expire, please contact Hampshire Plumbers.

    Homeowners Gas Safety Certificates

    If you own the property in which you live, then you do not need a gas certificate. There is no such thing as an official certificate on gas protection for purely residential homeowners, however, we would suggest that you carry out regular tests on any gas equipment and pipework in your house, to ensure that they operate safely and efficiently.

    This will give you peace of mind that the people who live in your home are safe, and that your appliances are not costing more than they should.

    If you like, you can also ask the licensed Gas Safe technician, who inspects your appliances or does remedial work, to supply you with paperwork. This could be useful if you choose in the future to sell your house.

    It is worth noting that there is no uniform certificate provided by the Gas Safe registry, so certificates can vary from one organisation to another. However, as long as the relevant information is accurate and can be generated in hard copy, then it is valid.

    Who can Carry Out the Gas Safety Certificate Checks ?

    Only gas plumbers registered with the Gas Safe scheme can lawfully carry out annual gas safety checks and issue certificates.

    It is also a smart idea to check if a plumber is licensed with Gas Safe before you hire them.

    You can do so by reviewing the electronic registry or demanding their Gas Safe registration certificate to be viewed. It is a small identification card that will show the following:

    •         Identification and photo of the gas engineer
    •         Start and expiry dates
    •         Gas Safe Registration license number
    •         Security hologram
    •         Company the plumber is working for.

    On the back of the card, you will also be able to verify in which fields of gas the engineer is qualified and if their credentials are up to date.

    Don’t be afraid of asking for an ID card from your plumber. Gas protection is a very significant concern and you want to make sure the inspections are done by someone who is able to do them correctly and will supply legal paperwork. A trustworthy Gas Safe technician would be more than happy to show you their ID.

    At Hampshire Plumbers we provide gas safety certificates to homeowners and landlords in Hampshire. The gas safety certificates we offer will show that both the gas supply and the equipment are safe to use in your home.

    Do I Need a Gas Safety Check ?

    In your house, any gas engine will emit carbon monoxide (CO), a highly toxic gas that happens when natural gas or liquid petroleum gas (LPG) is not burned as it should. That is the product of a gas appliance being poorly installed, fixed or managed, or where pipes, flues or chimneys have been blocked – so that is why it is so vital that a gas safe licensed engineer reviews all of the gas appliances once a year.

    A gas safety inspection can only be carried out by a licensed expert from the Gas Safe scheme, who can inspect the gas appliances to ensure they are safe to continue working in your house.

    A safety inspection of the gas equipment guarantees an appliance:

    •         is correctly installed and calibrated such that the gas burns properly
    •         is appropriate for the space in which it is placed
    •         is physically sound, safely mounted and properly attached to the gas pipework.

    FAQ

    Hampshire Plumbers is licensed as gas safe Gas Safe and can be found in the Gas Safe registry.

    The Gas Safe registry is the official body that tracks and oversees all UK, Guernsey and Isle of Man gas engineers.

    Although an unlicensed engineer can conduct simple work such as fastening a pipe or installing a radiator, any work on the gas boiler itself or the gas-related operation must be done by a registered and qualified engineer from Gas Safe .

    The Gas Safe Security Registry Card is held by all our engineers and can be seen on request.

    Even if you have a gas alarm or carbon monoxide detector, frequent gas checks are also necessary to ensure your home is safe.

    Typical gas safety tests will take 20 to 30 minutes to complete, however, it can take longer if repairs are to be carried out.

    Note that all gas checks must be carried out by an expert licensed with Gas Safe and it is advisable to do so at least once every year.

    There are people qualified to work in a specific gas sector. At Hampshire Plumbers, all our engineers are Gas Safe licensed. To know more, please call us on 02380 970979.

    A number of checks will be performed during a routine gas safety test to ensure that the home appliances and gas devices are fit for use. Our Gas Safe specialist can test the boiler and the tank for hot water (if you have one). Although the gas safety inspector will not be able to conduct such on-the-spot fixes, the inspector may check gas devices such as gas cookers and ovens, gas mains, gas lines and all other machinery or appliances that require gas to work. When the equipment is considered unsafe, the equipment will be removed from the gas mains as a security precaution, and you will be informed so that a Gas Safe technician can be arranged to come and get it serviced and/or repaired.

    If you own or use any gas-powered appliances, it’s your duty to ensure your home is secure. When you have gas related problems, a gas safety test will identify and give advice about how you can have them fixed.

    You will be issued a gas safety certificate at the conclusion of the inspection to prove that your gas and home appliances are safe.

    The certificate indicates that you agree with the health and safety legislation pertaining to the use of gas in the house and that the home is safe for people living in it. The credential is valid for usually 12 months. It means that every 12 months you will be doing gas health inspections.

    If you need a Gas Safe Registered Inspector to carry out gas inspection on your house, call us on 02380 970979.

    As a landlord, you are legally liable for your tenants’ protection concerning the gas supply in the property they are renting from you. Under regulation you have to fix and keep in good condition gas pipework, flues and equipment.

    The cost of gas safety tests or service may depend on the Gas Safe licensed engineer you select, but certain factors can mean that you are eligible for free gas appliance checks.
