Commonly asked questions:

Heating and electricity use in the home is changing rapidly. Below is the answers to a few of the most asked, but let us know if there is anything else you need to know.

Do I have to have a boiler serviced?

No – if you are a private home owner, that is living in your own home. But we do recommended an annual service for safety and efficiency. If your boiler is under warranty, then this is essential to maintain the warranty.

Yes – if you are a landlord, an annual Gas Safety check is required.

I'm selling my house, where do I find installation certificates?

Despite our best intentions, certificates for work get lost. If you need to get copies, the contractor’s (the business that carried out the work) will have copies stored. There may be a charge to get copies, but at least you’ll have them for your solicitor. Read More

I'm buying a new cooker, can you install it?

Yes – but you may need a new power cable. Todays cookers have a higher power demand than those manufactured 10 years ago. As a result, your current supply cable may not have a high enough power rating.

Can I install my own gas boiler?
Only if you are a Gas Safe registered gas engineer! Contact the Gas Safe Register to find your nearest installer.
I've installed a new electric circuit in my house, can you certify it?
Unfortunately no. Electrical wiring must be installed by a ‘Competent Person’. This doesn’t mean someone who is good a DIY. It means someone on the competent persons register. To be on the register you must be a member of an appropriate trade body. For example NICEIC.
I can smell gas! What should I do?

Carbon monoxide alarms save lives

Worried about carbon monoxide?

In 2015 UK regulations changed for rental properties and now require that carbon-monoxide detectors are fitted where there is a risk of carbon monoxide. You may be worried carbon-monoxide (CO) poisoning and you would be right to be concerned.
