Newport Homeowner
Found it easy to change the original appointment made on line as I am not a technophobe. As always the engineer rang shortly before he was due to arrive which is most helpful.

Engineer did landlord certificate and full service on boiler and system which only involved removing 4 screws on boiler and testing output flue, and nothing else. Not really what I was expecting. Also he has not completed the registration for the landlord certificate so it now shows on web site as expired, so BG want to arrange another inspection.
Very poor, could not recommend them at all as I have paid over £300 for this.

Birmingham Homeowner
My last four experiences with call outs has been extremely disappointing. In fact there are so many "exceptions" to what British Gas can actually do for me I am considering cancelling our agreement.

n engineer came to look at a possible pipework issue - i.e. preventative maintenance advice was being sought. The engineer stated they were metal pipes and not copper pipes and so he could not assist as it was not covered by the Homecare agreement. This said he then proceeded to wire brush the pipe to see if there could be a possible problem and caused the pipework to spring a leak (when I had no leak before). This meant the whole central heating system had to be drained and left me with no heating or hot water. Stating that he would have to get me a quote of the cost to put this right. I chased up the quote only to find it would take over a week to be sent to me. Having contacted British Gas on the following evening another engineer was booked for the following day.

The engineer arrived and stated that he was not there to correct the problem but only to give a second opinion. He looked at the pipework and again brushed the metal pipe. I asked him why he was brushing the pipe thereby causing further extensive damage. He stated that British Gas always try to assist wherever they can - but clearly he was causing more damage. He checked my boiler and only at that point placed a hazard sign to indicate there was a safety issue with the boiler. I told him what had occurred and said I would have to wait for the quote and then decide if I went with British Gas or another provider.

The quote estimate for the pipework arrived and was going to be over £800 when the damage had clearly been caused by the engineer.

I sourced another registered plumber to solve the problem caused by British Gas at a much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much cheaper price.

Recent boiler maintenance - this was not as thoroughly conducted as on previous occasions by other engineers. Whilst he was helpful in ensuring the boiler cupboard was replaced correctly I was concerned in that he never left the house so I don't know how he could have tested the emission of the flu on my conventional boiler.
