Illegal Gas Fitters Operating in Brighton, Hove and Sussex

A weakened economy and the recent cold weather mean more cowboy jobs are being performed than ever. Since the New Year, Plumbing On-Tap has encountered more botched jobs, illegally conducted by unlicensed gas fitters that we care to count. If a plumbing and heating engineer is not registered with GAS SAFE they are working illegally, and unfortunately more than a quarter of a million illegal jobs are conducted annually, putting people at risk of gas leaks, fires, explosions and death. The potential loses in money and in lives is staggering.

The Gas Safe Register is a regulatory body within the UK to which all heating and plumbing engineers must be registered by UK law.   Engineers who are registered with Gas Safe have a proven track record of possessing the necessary qualifications to work with gas and gas-related products, which is why Plumbing On-Tap employs only the best in Brighton, Hove, and Worthing: registered Gas Safe engineers with a proven track record for professional, safe work.Each Gas Safe registered engineer is given a Gas Safe ID card that allows any prospective clients to check that not only is the engineer certified, but that they are certified to conduct work on the gas-related appliance you need. It’s important to remember that if a Gas Safe certified engineer is conducting work on a gas appliance they are not registered to work on, they are still working illegally; a move that could put you and your family at risk.The hazards of gas are too numerous and risky to leave the job to just anyone, even if that engineer comes recommended by family and friends.  Always check with the Gas Safe register to ensure you are always hiring legally registered engineers.
