Every now and then, we all find ourselves needing to seek out a services provider, and one of the most important such firms that we can possibly contact is a gas heating and repair company. After all, attempting to fix your own boiler or hiring an unqualified person to work on your central heating system could have deadly consequences.
So, when you are attempting to select the right gas heating and repair company for your needs, a range of vital factors must be considered – such as the below.
Whether they are Gas Safe Registered
We can’t emphasise enough that the only engineers you should ever allow to work on your property’s gas appliances are those on the Gas Safe Register.
If they don’t have this status, it is crucial to avoid using them – not only for your safety, but also so that you can avoid wasting money on a botched installation or repair job that will need to be corrected at additional expense later.
Their experience in the business
A poor gas heating and repair company doesn’t tend to last for very long, especially in today’s age of easily accessible online reviews, and much the same can be said of the professionals behind such a business.
This is why it should reassure you that Chelmsford Gas Services, for instance, commands the strongest ratings on online review platforms such as TrustATrader, and is helmed by a professional with decades of experience in this ever-demanding and specialised industry.
Partnerships, approvals and accreditations
We mentioned TrustATrader above, and the fact that we have been checked and vetted by that particular platform should be a source of reassurance when you are considering us as your gas heating and repair company.
However, we are also on the aforementioned Gas Safe Register, and are registered with Trust Mark and the CIPHE as well. Furthermore, we are trained and approved contractors for multiple leading manufacturers, including Intergas, Viessmann, Glowworm and Baxi.
The exact services that they provide
Does the firm that you are considering provide services geared to the needs of both domestic and commercial properties? Does it offer wide-ranging and specialised services such as gas safety inspections, gas meter/pipe repositioning and gas leak detection… and what do those specific services cover?
If, for instance, you are on the lookout for a boiler installation specialist, does the company possess in-depth expertise on the various types and brands of boiler available? Oh, and is the business also independent enough to recommend the boiler that best suits your needs, rather than simply the one that gives the sales rep the biggest margins?
Whether it is a national or local company
It’s understandable why so many people repeatedly opt for ‘household name’ firms over a local gas heating and repair company, as familiarity does tend to translate into trust.
However, local businesses can often be more agile and responsive to your specific needs, and may offer better value for the particular installation, repair or other service that you require. Furthermore, you don’t need to depend on a brand these days to assess whether a particular company is reputable, given the various reviews and ratings you can now come across online.
Whatever your expectations and requirements may be when you next search for a gas heating and repair company, you can avoid taking any unnecessary risks when you make Chelmsford Gas Services your choice. Simply call 0800 4581 473 or 01245 251 741 for more information.
