Different gas leak repair options

GAS LEAK REPAIR southeast London NAIL PIPE

There are two different options when you suspect a gas leak, and ignoring it is not one of them. This may sound obvious, but it would not be the first time that I come across a bad one and the owner or the tenant tells me that it has probably been there for a while, but they didn't think it was that bad. The two safe options are to call Registered Gas Installer, which is somebody that is on the Gas Safe Register, or the Gas Emergency Services at 0800 111 999.

The people that man the 0800 alarm number, are still often referred to as Transco, the gas board or BG. It is important to realise that this is NOT British Gas, nor "the gas board". BG/Centrica are just a commercial company these days and are bound to charge you heavily for any call out, whether there is a leak or not. The Gas Emergency Service for southeast London and Bromley can be carried out by Southern Gas Networks, or their subcontractor Morrison, but they all work in the same manner. They will all come out 24/7 any day of the year. They usually arrive very fast, often in less than half an hour. They will work as long as it takes to make sure that when they leave, there is all safe. It will never cost you, regardless of whether or not it was false alarm or how often they come to your address. The downside of this service is that they only have to make safe, in other words they assure that there is no gas escaping when they leave. They do not have to solve any problems inside your property (although they often do) which is where the registered gas installer or heating engineer comes in to carry out the actual gas leak repair.
The engineer that comes out first after you have called 0800 111 999 may be able to determine exactly where the gas leak is, in which case the gas installer will be able to do his job quicker, and you have saved some money.

Sometimes they can not find the exact location under the floor, in which case they simply cap your gas. The priority for the people that come out free of charge to you, is to make safe. They will try to help to prevent you from freezing to death, but that is about it. It is the Registered Gas Installer that will do his best to take care of the actual emergency gas leak repairs as soon as reasonably possible whilst remaining safe. You don't have to call 0800 111 999 if you smell gas or think you may have a gas escape for another reason. It is perfectly ok to call a central heating engineer in Bromley or southeast London direct. Anyone who works on your boiler should be able to solve the problem for you.

The important part is not who makes sure that you are safe, but that they do it properly. There are a few things you an do to speed it all up. We will need to get to the gasmeter at least twice, probably more times. The easier the access is, the quicker the job gets done. Gas meters are often under staircases or in basements, and both are usually full of things people don't need very often. If your house is the same, it helps if you start moving things out of the way before we arrive. Please remember the essentials of what to do when you think you smell gas, and feel free to bookmark this page and call it: "GAS LEAKS" or something like that. Better have it and not need it than need as they say.

If you THINK you smell gas, treat it as if you DO smell it. In case of doubt, DO call the alarm number. Erring on the side of caution means calling the number, do NOT wait until you are sure there is a problem. Calling for a false alarm is NOT silly. NOBODY will hold it against you, or charge you if you call 0800 111 999, it doesn't matter if they actually need to repair a gas leak or not. It is like throwing a life line, you don't wait until you can prove somebody is drowning, you throw it as soon as YOU are convinced somebody MAY be in trouble. There is absolutely NO limit on how often you can call them out. The only restriction is that they have to make the situation safe, and leave it up to you to call a heating engineer to replace the pipe. If you need somebody today or even right now, even if it is out of hours, for repairing a gas leak in southeast London or Bromley, simply call:
