As Spring approaches and people start to think about cleaning away the Winter blues, one of the UK’s largest online suppliers of boilers and accessories is reminding DIY advocates that the central heating and hot water boiler is a no-go area.
The Boilers Sales website is reminding people that gas boilers cannot be serviced, or worked on by anyone unless they are on the Gas Safe Register in the appropriate group. And this is the law of the land, not just a recommendation.
Effectively only heating engineers which appear in the right section of the Gas Safe Register are allowed to service, repair, on install gas boilers. Others on the Gas Safe Register might, for example, only be allowed to work on gas fires.
Tom Bradford, Managing Director of Boilers-Sale.co.uk, says:
‘Like it, or not, the Government and its advisors are really trying to crack down on rogue boiler repairs and installers. And given the number of people that die every month through gas explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning, you can see why.
‘The simple rule is, don’t touch anything on a boiler unless it’s the controls which are designed for customer use. Even working around the boiler on the pipework and cold water feeds is not allowed, and there’s no excuse. Always call in the experts if you think your boiler needs servicing, or repairing.’
The Boilers-Sale.co.uk website boasts some of the best deals and discounts on UK boilers and accessories, featuring products from most of the major manufacturers.
