Research by the Gas Safety Register highlights the dangers of employing unregistered gas engineers

It's shocking to think that almost five million people in the UK are putting themselves and their families at risk by employing illegal gas engineers who aren't properly qualified to do the job.

Recent figures based on research by the Gas Safety Register, following four years of investigations into unqualified and unregistered gas fitters, showed that 65% of jobs carried out by illegal fitters were unsafe and that one in five of the appliances they fitted were so dangerous that immediate disconnection was required.

 

Energy Company Obligation scheme reforms

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme is entering a period of change with an increased focus on low-income and vulnerable homes.

As from April 2017, energy companies will be required to provide more help to struggling households, including free energy efficiency measures to make their homes warmer and bring their bills down.  The decision comes following the results of the “ECO: Help to Heat” consultation, which ran from July to August 2016.
