In Roman times, plumbers used lead piping. This is where the name plumber comes from. Plumber’s name comes from the Latin word “Plumbum”, which means lead. Plumbers are now able to remove lead pipes from their homes. Lead particles were contaminating the water supply and plumbing pipes today are not made of lead. Modern plumbers are skilled craftsmen who can work on both dry and wet pipes. They also have the ability to repair your heating system.
Heating Engineers are responsible for heating a property. They install and maintain the pumps, actuators and radiators that heat the structure. They can work in commercial, industrial or residential properties to provide heating solutions. Heating Engineers are specialists in heating. They don’t do any other work. A Heating Engineer is the best person to call when you have a central heating problem.
The confusion is mainly due to Plumbers. Their trade covers a wide range of tasks, including plumbing for bathrooms, kitchens pipes, underfloor heating, wireleess thermostat and boiler breakdowns. Many Plumbers have extensive knowledge of heating systems and are skilled in their installation. Most plumbers who can install a boiler and central heating system are Gas Safe Registered. To find out if they’re registered or if their business is gas safe, visit the Gas Safe Register. When calling a plumber to fix your problem, this is something you should be aware of.
If you need assistance with anything to do with your heating system, you should always call in a heating engineer. They can help with repairs, replacements, annual services and even emergencies with all of the following:
- Central heating systems through vents
- Hot water cylinders
- Associated piping
- Anything else to do with your heating system
To make sure you are getting the best heating engineer for the job, always ensure they are Gas Safe registered, essential if they need to work on a gas appliance. They will need an OFTEC certification if you need them to look at oil boilers.
When to call in a plumber
As a general rule of thumb, any appliance that is water based is the domain of the plumber. That includes taps, toilets, dishwashers and sinks. You may well find plumbers who have the same Gas Safe registration as heating engineers but this doesn’t mean they’re qualified to work on gas boilers. They may only be legally cleared to work on other gas appliances, such as a space heaters. So it’s worth checking.
Plumbing Services :
- Clearing blockages in pipes that carry water (for example, to and from your washing machine or dishwasher)
- Investigating and fixing water leaks, including dripping taps
- Installing water based appliances such as dishwashers
- Fixing, repairing and installing bathroom suites
- Troubleshooting issues with toilets – overflows and non-flushes
- Maintenance, repair and installation of drainage, irrigation and sewage systems
As you can see, there is a clear difference between the areas of special expertise that plumbers and heating engineers possess. Should you find professionals advertising their ability to do both, you should assess the nature of the problem you have and decide whether an all-rounder has the specific skills and qualifications to carry out the task to your satisfaction, or whether you need to choose a specialist.
What you don’t need is an under-qualified plumber badly installing your expensive new boiler which can be incredibly dangerous given that faulty gas appliances can lead to high CO
This is why it’s vital that, as well as reading customer reviews on tradespeople’s websites, you check their qualifications. For anything heating or boiler related, that Gas Safe registration is critical. It’s required by law for anyone working with gas based appliances. A quick search of the company name on the Gas Safe register website will reveal whether a engineer you’re interested in has the necessary certification.
