• It is essential to get all the gas appliances checked by the professionals at least once a year. Check out with the companies from where you have bought those equipments and check if they provide you a free reliable check up yearly.
• If the company does not provide you with the free check up yearly, you have to search for an engineer in your locality.
There are several electricians, plumbers and heating engineers in North London. But, you need to choose only the gas safe registered engineers.
• Check the identification card of the engineer and make sure he is registered with the gas safe register, U.K.’s official gas safety body. The CORGI is now called Gas Safe Register. So, check if there is a yellow coloured logo of the gas safe register on the ID card. If there is still that CORGI’s orange coloured logo, then the engineer is not to be considered as legal.
• It is illegal to work for a gas safe registered engineer to do a private work and if you suspect someone doing so, you can report him to the gas safety register.
