Wirral heating engineers understand that a faulty heating system is simply not an option during winter months for families and businesses. The heating appliances in your home are essential for keeping your family warm and healthy. That’s why it’s vital you find a qualified heating engineer that values your family and property as much as you do.
If your radiator is making weird noises or one of the lights on your boiler is flashing incessantly, it’s time to call a professional heating engineer.
What is a Heating Engineer?
A plumber and heating engineer’s work often overlap, resulting in some confusion. The difference between the two professions is simple.
Heating engineers are heating system specialists. They maintain and install pipework, fittings, and fixtures used to heat your property. If you are having a problem with any part of your Wirral building’s heating system, an experienced heating engineer would be your first port of call.
On the other hand, plumbers have been called the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of the trade. Historically, plumbers only worked on dry and wet pipes, but today they do much more. An experienced, Gas Safe registered plumber will also be certified to maintain and install heating systems.
To avoid the headache of deciphering the intricate differences between the two, you should find a professional outfit that has experienced heating engineers and plumbers, like Wirral Plumbers.
Why Might You Need a Heating Engineer for Your Wirral Home?
Heating engineers are trained to handle all central heating related issues. This includes everything from boiler repair to fixture installation. The heating engineer you choose should be experienced in:
Hot water cylinders
But heating engineers need more than just experience to get the job done. They need to have the appropriate qualifications too.
Why Does Your Wirral Heating Engineer Have to be Gas Safe Registered?
According to the law, all companies supplying heating engineers must be Gas Safe qualified. The Gas Safe Register is a list of all the legally-permitted businesses that can safely undertake gas-related works.
It’s also a requirement at the individual level too. Without the qualification, a heating engineer cannot change or install fittings. They can also not service, install or adjust boilers. Anyone who carries out this work without a Gas Safe qualification is breaking the law and is potentially putting your family’s safety at risk.
Before employing a heating engineer, you should ensure that the company name or registration number is listed on the Gas Safe Register website. The heating engineer conducting the work on your property should also be able to show you their Gas Safe ID card without any quibbles.
