The reasons to use a professional for boiler installation

There are many reasons for using a professional for boiler installation. Whilst it may seem like an expensive route to take for some, the benefits in doing so far outweigh the negative reasons not to do so. Here we shall be outlining these positive reasons.

Main reasons for using a professional

Gas boilers and the law Gas boilers can only be fitted by professionals who are on the HSE Gas Safe register. This is a safety and legal requirement and it is illegal for anyone not on this register to install a gas boiler. There is also the safety aspect to be taken into consideration with gas installations as risk of fire or explosion is always a threat if the work has not been undertaken correctly. Oil fired boilers Oil fired boilers should be fitted by an Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) registered installer. OFTEC members are approved to certify that any work which they undertake meets with the relevant building regulations. If you choose not to employ an OFTEC member, then your local authority's building control department needs to be informed of this fact before any work starts on the installation. Accountability
Installing a new boiler is by no means an easy task to undertake and by using a professional, you have the added benefit of accountability. For instance, if you try and install a boiler yourself and you make a mistake you have no-one to blame but yourself and you will have a little to no chance of recouping the costs involved from any possible damage which may have resulted from your work. If a professional makes such an error, then you will be able to reclaim any costs as a result of their poor workmanship.

In summary

As can be seen, it really is a false economy to try and install a boiler by yourself and your are better off letting a professional undertake the work. Before choosing someone to do the work for you, always ask around for people who have had similar work done and see if anyone can recommend someone to you. Of course, when choosing boiler installers to perform the work for you, always check that their credentials are above board and correct.
