Fewer than half of Brits check their gas engineer's credentials

A new survey by the Gas Safe Register reveals that fewer than half of people who hire a gas engineer check whether they’re working legally before letting them into their home.

This means the majority of UK homeowners are putting themselves at risk from illegal, unregistered gas fitters.

Our advice? Never cut corners or take chances when it comes to gas in your home or business. It’s just not worth the risk.

Always use a Gas Safe registered engineer like XP Plumbing and Heating to fit, inspect or repair your gas appliances.

If you’re not sure whether they’re registered or not? Don’t go on trust.

Ask to see your gas engineer’s Gas Safe ID card. If they’re registered, they’ll have one. You can also consult Gas Safe’s website or phone helpline to find out whether an engineer is registered with them or not.

XP Plumbing and Heating and our gas engineers are of course registered with the Gas Safe Register. Our registration number is 539196, if you want to check for yourself.
