How to Choose the Right Gas Heating Engineer in Bristol and Bath

Do you find choosing the right heating engineer an overwhelming task? With so many engineers to choose from, are you worried that you will choose the right one? We at Core Heating understand the importance for you to get the right customer service so we have listed a few helpful tips in choosing that right reliable gas heating engineer.

Gas Safe Registered Gas Engineers

By law, only Gas Safe Registered Engineers (previously known as CORGI) are allowed to work on gas appliances. Gas Safe are an organisation that monitors the safety of engineers work.They make sure they are qualified and competent to work safely and legally which, in turn, will give you peace of mind that your family and home are safe.

So, when you call in a gas heating engineer to sort out your boiler repair, provide a boiler service or issue a landlord inspection certificate, make sure that they are Gas Safe registered. How do I know my gas heating engineer is qualified to do the work? Well, all registered heating engineers will carry an identification card with an unique identification number. Don’t be afraid to ask for the number and check them out. The unique identification number for Core Heating is 197332. Why not check us out now on the Gas Safe website?

See what others have to say

Once you have an engineer in mind, take a look at the company website and see what their testimonials have to say. A good engineer doesn’t have to shout about how good they are, rather let the customers experiences speak for themselves. Core Heating have a vast array of longstanding customers. Take a look at what they say, after all, it is their opinion, and yours, that really count. Check out our testimonials to find out more.

Technical knowledge

So, you have gone as far as picking up the phone and speaking to the heating engineer. Did you get a good vibe? Did they sound like they knew what they were talking about? A good heating engineer will take time to explain the technical side of your gas boiler problem. Remember, if he knows what he is talking about it means that you will get your problem resolved quickly, all with minimum disturbance and cost to you. Core Heating have been established since 2002 and specialise in gas boiler repairs, boiler servicing and landlord inspection certificates. We pride ourselves on a fast and effective diagnosis and the majority of our repairs are diagnosed within the first hour. Also, the same gas engineer will see your job through which means there will be no time wasted whilst another engineer gets up to speed with your breakdown.

Guarantee

So, you have your boiler up and running again. The engineer did a good job but what happens if the same part fails within a short period of time? You have spent money getting it fixed, where do you now stand? It is always good to check the guarantee that you get with the service that you pay for. On the odd occasion that this may happen, Core Heating offer a comprehensive 1 year guarantee on all parts and labour carried out. There will be a no quibble change of parts so there is no need to slash out any more money!

How to Avoid the Harmful Effects of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Are you worried about Carbon Monoxide poisoning?

With recent media attention, many feel great concern. We would never bring something knowingly dangerous into our home which could risk the health of ourselves and that of our family. However, having a gas boiler that isn’t regularly checked and maintained is potentially DANGEROUS!

When a boiler doesn’t burn gas correctly, it produces higher concentrations of carbon-monoxide which is toxic. We are all to familiar with the harmful health consequences that this can bring. It is estimated that one death a week is a result of poorly maintained boilers and gas appliances. That equates to an approximate 52 individuals each year! In addition, an estimated 200 are left seriously ill from the side effects.

Signs of carbon monoxide poisoning to look out for;

  • headaches
  • dizziness and nausea
  • vomiting
  • tiredness and confusion
  • stomach pain
  • shortness of breath and difficulty breathing

Having your boiler annually checked will vastly reduce the chance of this happening to you. When a service is carried out, the engineer will be able to check the health of your boiler and provide the maintenance that it requires. IT IS VITAL TO NOTE THAT A SERVICE CAN ONLY BE CARRIED OUT BY A GAS SAFE ENGINEER.

The following symptoms indicate that your gas boiler needs to be inspected:

  • An irregular or yellow boiler flame.
  • Stains or smoke marks appearing on or near the appliance.
  • Unstable pressure on the heating circuit, i.e. high/low pressure.
  • The boiler pilot light goes out repeatedly.
