Why your business needs to hire a commercial gas engineer

british gas commercial engineers

Staying safe with gas isn’t just good business sense. It’s the law.

While the types of jobs that commercial and domestic gas engineers do are similar in name (installing, servicing and repairing gas boilers), just selecting the first engineer you find on google isn’t a good idea if you’re looking to have work done for your business. Commercial and business properties often have larger gas boilers, or non-domestic appliances and larger pipework which a domestic engineer isn’t qualified to work on.

We believe that businesses should only hire commercial gas engineers to work on the gas appliances in their premises. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to the safety of your staff and customers. The prices we charge to our business and commercial customers is about the same as our residential customers too.
