Picture this if you will.

It’s a nice sunny day and you are getting ready to head out to your local pitch, to watch a few friends play in a rugby match.

As you prepare to head out, you smell that faint but recognizable smell.

You know EXACTLY what it is. Running through the house you start to tell people they need to get out as quickly as possible.

What’s the big deal you ask?

Gas, that’s what. The smell you recognize is a gas leak.

So what went wrong?

Well, you wanted to save some money so you asked your cousin, who is training to be a gasfitter to do the work for you.

Unfortunately, as well intentioned as he was, he just wasn’t qualified enough to do the work and now your home is not only in danger, but your family is as well.

So what do you do?

What you can do is prevent this from ever happening, this is just a fictional story, after all.

Here are three reasons why you need to hire a certifying gas installer.



Correct And Proper Installation

There are different levels of licensing that come with gasfitters and with each level come a different level of expertise. The highest is a certifying gasfitter and this is ideally the person you want doing it, or at least onsite to ensure the work is done correctly.

Someone at this level ensures that their work, as well as those doing work under them is done competently. The next level is a licensed gasfitter. These individuals can do the work and are licensed, but still call for a certifying gasfitter to oversee the work.

The last is a limited trainee. These individuals are working towards becoming licensed and/or certified and require a certifying individual to oversee the work.

Ensuring that you know the different levels of licensing that the individuals have, will ensure that you know that the work is being done competently, correctly and properly.

The example used in the beginning of the article spoke to the safety of the residents of the home. Installation of gas components needs to be done correctly and competently to ensure the safety of all in the house.

Unlike a leaky water pipe, faulty gas components can have deadly consequences. One of main reasons you want a certifying gas installer to do the work is so you can be sure that the safety of those in the home is not compromised.

Peace Of Mind

Have you ever had someone work on your vehicle or fix something in your home that you weren’t too sure of?

Chances are good that when you drove that vehicle or used the repaired part, you found yourself wondering if it would hold up.

The gas in your home shouldn’t be something that you should stress over.

Instead of cutting corners, be sure to hire someone who can guarantee the work is done correctly the first time.

Save yourself some time and unneeded stress; Insist on hiring a certifying gas installer to do the work in your home.
