In general, gas appliances are almost always more energy and cost-effective than electricity. So when it’s time for a replacement, it makes sense to stick to gas – especially if your home is already set up for it. But working with gas can be dangerous. Even if you normally fix things up around the home, we recommend hiring a Gas Safe Registered engineer to replace your gas appliance.
These professionals are certified to work with gas and will always comply with the latest health and safety regulations. Your gas engineer will first discuss the job with you to make sure you buy the right replacement appliance. They’ll then book in a day that’s convenient for you both and switch off the gas supply before doing any work. Once they’ve ensured there are no leaks, they’ll disconnect your old appliance and remove it. They’ll then test all the valves and pipes before connecting your new appliance. If they spot any problems, your engineer will let you know straight away.
When everything is connected, they’ll turn the main gas supply back on and test the appliance before they go.
If you’re thinking of replacing a gas appliance, you want someone who can do it quickly and most importantly, safely. That means finding a local tradesperson with all the right qualifications and certifications. With hundreds of professionals on our platform, we can match you with a gas engineer in your area in minutes.
You can coordinate diaries and decide on a date that suits you both. Your gas engineer won’t have to drive far, so there’s no need to factor in travelling costs and you can book them for emergencies and any other non-urgent jobs too. They’re also fully up to date with national regulations. It’s never been easier to find a reliable Local Hero.
