Find a local Boiler Engineer in Belfast
When you need someone to fix, fit or service your gas boiler (or other gas appliances), they’ll need to be Gas Safe registered – it’s the law.
Being on the Gas Safe Register ensures that the engineer has achieved an industry recognised gas qualification and has a licence to work on gas in the UK, Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey.
If an engineer is carrying out gas work without being Gas Safe registered, they are working illegally and could put you at risk of gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Common boiler problems
Experiencing problems with your gas boiler? These can occur for various reasons, but they tend to be more noticeable during the colder months when your boiler is in much higher demand. Because of this, it's important to get your annual service and gas safety checks carried out before the winter cold hits.
However, if your boiler has broken down or is experiencing issues we’d always advise that find and contact a local Gas Safe registered engineer who can check your appliance and take the best course of action ensuring it's repaired safely.
