What is GAS SAFE ?

The GAS SAFE Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in 2009.

It is the official list of gas engineers who are registered to work safely and legally on boilers, cookers, fires and all other gas appliances. By law all gas engineers must be on the GAS SAFE register.

Always trust the triangle.

The main focus of the register is on improving and maintaining gas safety to the highest standards. The body makes sure all gas engineers are qualified to work with gas.

Guy Crabb Plumbing and Heating is on the GAS SAFE REGISTER.

Why use a HETAS Registered installer?

Peace of mind

HETAS registered installers are trained and assessed as competent so you can have faith in their work.

It saves you time

HETAS registered installers can self-certificate their work which means that you can avoid the need for time consuming and expensive building notice applications to the local authority.

It is simpler

A Certificate of Compliance will be issued as a record of the job and that it complies with Building Regulations. A copy of the certificate is forwarded to HETAS who notify the local authority on your behalf.

It is cheaper

There will not be any additional fees for the issue of the Certificate of Compliance. This saves you costly Building Notice applications to the local authority of approximately £300.

Future Proof

If you are looking to sell your house any new purchasers will require a HETAS installation certificate or building regulation certificate of compliance to state your stove has been safely installed. You could face extra work and legal bills to prove this if you have not used a HETAS approved engineer or sought building compliance. In the worst case you would have to uninstall a stove and reinstall with appropriate compliance.
