Is Your Boiler Servicer Gas Safe Registered?

For a task as delicate as installing or replacing your gas boiler, safety should always be a priority. It’s a mistake to blindly entrust this to anyone just because he’s listed in your community pages or on the Web, claiming he can do the job. To ensure that your servicer is well-equipped and skilled in handling your gas appliance, confirm whether he is certified under the Gas Safe Register.

After getting the number, you may check its validity through the website or simply text or call the Gas Safe Register.
