If you need a company of plumbers for central heating maintenance work, heating engineers for boiler repairs or bathroom fitters for an underfloor heating installation, D & R Plumbing & Heating Ltd is here to help. Located in Horley, we supply trained and qualified personnel for projects in the Reigate area with all-important Gas Safe accreditation. We advise that you never use plumbers and heating engineers without Gas Safe registration.
The Gas Safe register is an official governing body for the United Kingdom, and one that has an impact on our plumbers and bathroom fitters as well as our heating engineers.
Only an accredited tradesman can perform boiler repairs, central heating maintenance work and gas installations, such as the fitting of underfloor heating. You could be putting the safety of your family and the integrity of your Reigate home at risk if you use a company that doesn’t have Gas Safe registration – and could face legal consequences as a result.
The boiler is the heartbeat of a central heating or underfloor heating system, and the appliances that heat water inside the home. Gas Safe replaced the old CORGI registration body for plumbers and heating engineers in 2009. Tradesmen in today’s modern plumbing and heating sector must have accreditation to work on boilers and gas appliances.
Boiler repairs present a series of threats for properties and, in the hands of unqualified plumbers and heating engineers, could put homes in Reigate – and their owners – at risk of gas leaks, fires, carbon monoxide poisoning and even explosions.
Always use accredited Gas Safe personnel for boiler repairs, and for installations should your current model be at the end of its serviceable life.
Even your choice of bathroom fitters plays a pivotal role in gas safety because, if the room space in your Reigate home undergoes a complete redesign, it will need the support of our plumbers and heating engineers to re-route the pipework and the water supply. This isn’t the type of work you can leave to a general handyman. Again, gas leaks present a danger and inadequate pipework leaves your property at risk of flooding.
If you plan on a central heating upgrade or an underfloor heating system installation as part of your remodelling project, be aware that some bathroom fitters won’t have the skills needed to work safely or competently.
D & R Plumbing & Heating Ltd combines the services of plumbers, heating engineers and bathroom fitters to provide you with the safest possible levels of service.
The final consideration in this blog post is underfloor heating. This is a modern system which we install for Reigate customers as an alternative to traditional central heating. This type of installation requires high levels of care and an understanding of damp-proofing membranes, insulation and even the gaps between the pipework to stop them filling with screed. Only accredited Gas Safe plumbers have the knowledge, and the authority, to perform underfloor heating installations.
Because underfloor heating links to the main appliance, a qualified tradesman can perform any essential boiler repairs, or changes to the current central heating system, in a safe and controlled manner prior to installation.
There is no excuse not to use accredited plumbers, heating engineers and bathroom fitters, and no reason at all for choosing anybody but the best tradesmen for work in your Reigate home. We want you to be happy, content and safe in your property, and to choose D & R Plumbing & Heating Ltd for your maintenance, installation, servicing and repair needs.
