What is Gas Safe?

Anyone carrying out gas work must have a Gas Safe Register ID card. If not, they are breaking the law and of course by doing so they are putting you at risk.

Gas safety is one of the most important factors in having a safe home. The dangers that surround unsafe gas appliances are deadly serious. Poorly maintained, faulty or badly installed gas appliances can lead to poisoning by carbon monoxide the effects of which can be fatal.

How do you know whether the gas engineer is safe? Always ask to see your gas engineer’s Gas Safe Register ID card to make sure they are safe and legal. The Gas Safe register is here to make sure you don’t fall into the trap of paying for illegal gas work with your health, and possibly your life.

Remember, any work done by a suitably qualified Gas Safe engineer will be certificated and that certificate will be required when you come to sell your home.
