A heating engineer is needed for your home when your central heating needs attention; either the boiler needs servicing or replacing, your radiators need work or you want to install a new heating system.
Replacing a boiler (with the same specification you already have) should take around one day.
Also heating engineers will recommend power flushing the system when fitting a new boiler. This is likely to take an additional day.
These are a great way to control your heating to tempertures per room, but it's a false economy to use cheap TRVs. Check that your heating engineer is supplying good quality products (expect to pay around £10-£15 per TRV).
If your system needs draining and refilling this may add to the time and the cost.
This will usually involve two visits. The first to diagnose the problem and a second to return with correct part and fit.
Ideally use a engineer who is registered wth credible associations.
Some of the repair areas you will need to consider using a gas heating engineer:
Get your appliances regularly serviced and safety checked every year, or in accordance with your manufacturer's guidelines, by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Fit an audible carbon monoxide alarm. An alarm will alert you to the presence of the poisonous gas carbon monoxide, produced by unsafe gas appliances. Make sure you know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.
If you think there might be a gas leak or notice any signs of carbon monoxide, act fast and get a heating engineer fast!
Finally when using a heating engineer, check they are member of CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering)
Each individual member has to abide by a six point Code of Professional Standards which helps to uphold high standards to protect public health and safety. To further protect the public, the CIPHE has a complaints procedure, which is overseen by the Registration Authority.
