If you need your boiler checked, fixed or replaced, then odds are that the first name you will think of is ‘British Gas’. But what exactly do they do? Do they provide Gas Safety certificates, or just replace boilers? And why should you pick a company like RD Heat over a well-known nationwide brand?
The brief post below answers these questions, and more.
If you need a gas safety certificate British Gas is most definitely a company you can get one from.
Gas Safety checks are a core offer of British Gas engineers. They can also fix your boiler, either by replacing broken parts or replacing it altogether.
Booking a Gas Safety check from British Gas is like booking one from any other regulated engineer. You agree on a date and time, they check all of your gas appliances, and they provide you with a certificate. The certificate will provide all relevant information, will highlight any problems, and recommend fixes if necessary.
British Gas also offer several options with regard to getting a Gas Safety certificate. While it is possible to book them for a one-off check, it is also possible to pay for HomeCare cover, which includes Gas Safety checks. These are included, one per year, as part of a package that features things like emergency callouts and servicing.
RD Heat is a heating specialist who offers gas safety checks.
We are family-run and pride ourselves on delivering high-quality Gas Safety checks that are reasonably priced. As well as offering professional, reliable service, we also offer finance options to help you pay for your Gas Safety check.
As we’ve pointed out, British Gas offer Gas Safety checks too. So why should you choose us over them?
We are a local, family-run business.
You won’t get the impersonal treatment that you might expect from a big multinational corporation.
We go above and beyond. We don’t just do boiler servicing, we will also replace your boiler if it is on its way out or if you want to upgrade to one of our high-efficiency models.
British Gas may be the largest energy provider in the UK, but that doesn’t mean they can compete with our local presence. No matter where you are based in Dorset, there is no reason to go anywhere else for your boiler servicing!
Our reputation is everything to us.
We go above and beyond to offer the very best in customer satisfaction, value for money, and high-quality service. That’s because as a local business, we live or die based on word-of-mouth, recommendations, referrals, and our reputation across Dorset. That means we treat every customer as if they’re our only customer.
It may not be fair for us to detail exactly why British Gas’ reputation isn’t the best. But if you’re interested, feel free to compare their TrustPilot rating and read through some customer experiences. We don’t have as many reviews—we are a local company, after all!—but we’re proud of the fact that we’re rated higher. Our customers have called us ‘unwaveringly helpful, efficient and good humoured’, ‘quick and efficient’, and more.
