If you’re looking to have a new central heating system installed in your home you need to make sure you choose the right installation company.
There is the option of looking through local papers or the yellow pages or even searching the internet to finding a good local plumber or installer. You need to make sure the company you choose is experienced and legally allowed to carry out the installation ( Gas Safe Registered ). Every single year people die from Carbon Monoxide poisoning which is caused by incorrectly installed and maintained gas appliances, which is why it is so important to choose the right company.
Three Simple Steps To Follow
You might think that choosing a larger well known company might cost a lot more but generally they don’t. Because they get wide spread coverage they can drop their prices. So don’t dismiss the big boys over local companies as you may find them far more competitive in price than you first thought.
One way to see if the company is fit for the job is to find out if they have any good feedback.
There are plenty of websites like Checkatrade that record feedback excellence service in plumbing and heating. The Corgi Awards is one, they have been around for 6 years and winning one of these awards is very prestigious in this industry. They look at customer service, safety issues and environmental responsibility and look to recognise and reward those for their achievement.
If you’re looking to have gas central heating installed and is thinking of choosing a lesser well known company or a company that hasn’t won any prestigious awards you should make sure they are on the Gas Safe register.
This is most important. The Gas Safe Register is a government incentive which replaced the previously CORGI standard. Basically companies are only allowed to install Gas appliances if they are on the register, and each engineer will carry a Gas Safe card to prove to you their credentials and proving their skills are up to date and relevant to the work they are doing.
