Engineers still not asked for ID
A new survey by Worcester Bosch Group has revealed worrying statistics around the habits of homeowners and their heating systems.
The study found that almost half of Brits would not ask a heating engineer to show their Gas Safe Register card before letting them work on a gas appliance, with more than one in three unaware that they should even check an installer’s credentials before letting them start work in their property.
However, what is just as concerning as engineers still not asked for ID is that one in ten of people questioned had never had their boiler serviced. In addition, a further 46% admitted to having skipped booking an annual boiler service, raising further questions over the current policy of optional boiler servicing.
