Avoiding Cowboys

There are situations when you need a heating engineer/plumber and fast!

The boiler is not working, the temperature in the house is freezing, the gas oven will not come on.

It is at times like this when you need someone to fix the situation quickly.  You need a heating engineer/plumber, but you may get a ‘cowboy’ tradesman.  It is difficult to know if you have contacted a reputable heating engineer, or someone who is  pretending to be a professional tradesman.

A professional should be happy to provide evidence of their credentials and certificates.  They have to have liability insurance so ask to see a copy of their certificate.  Are they a member of a trade association or professional body?  Is there a register you can check?  All heating engineers must be registered with GAS SAFE and they will be listed on that site.
