Hiring the correct kind of heating engineer is vital depending on the circumstance or setting of the job. There are two main kinds of gas engineer: domestic and commercial. Although a fully qualified engineer should be gas safe registered regardless of their specialism, the differences between the work of a commercial and domestic engineer are significant. If you are looking for commercial gas engineers in Newcastle, you need individuals who are adequately qualified, experienced and flexible with the added ability to put their skills to work across a number of diverse scenarios.
The right mix of these qualities is becoming increasingly rare within mid to large scale commercial maintenance companies until now. Enertech FM employs some of the most skilled and dedicated commercial gas engineers in the North Eastern region. We also implement a training culture of constant improvement so that our high standards of workmanship are forever reaching new heights. Our specialist commercial gas engineers are versed in every conceivable eventuality when it comes to commercial boilers and central heating systems.
The Gas Safe Card Work Catagories
Every gas engineer commercial or domestic must be in possession of an up-to-date Gas Safe ID card. This card is an assurance that an engineer is legally certified to carry out gas work. The specific types of work that the engineer is qualified to carry out are listed on this gas safe card. All gas engineers at a minimum must achieve the “pipework” qualification after which they can add various qualifications for services that they would like to offer.
What Qualifications Should My Commercial Gas Engineer Have?
If you have recently hired a new commercial gas engineer in Newcastle then before they start work you should check to see that he/she has the correct commercial qualifications. For commercial central heating and boiler work you should look for:
Wet Central Heating – For commercial boiler work this qualification is evidence that the holder is proficient in the installation, maintenance, repair and disposal of all gas heated boiler systems with a greater energy output than 70kw (domestic boilers range in output from 24-42kw). Any commercial gas engineers in Newcastle performing any of the above functions must hold this certification.
Radiant Tube or Plaque Heaters – This qualification shows that the engineer is certified to install, repair, maintain or disconnect a number of flueless appliances that operate using radiant heat. Examples of such heat sources include plaque or convection heaters.
Plant & Equipment – Many industrial commercial clients use gas-fired equipment which is very complex and requires specific expertise to repair or maintain. The Plant & Equipment qualification certifies an individual to work on such equipment as long as it is not connected to a gas supply.
Commercial Pipework – The commercial pipework certification shows that the owner is competent in the installation and removal of large scale pipework specifically with a diameter greater than 35mm. At Enertech FM we offer an extensive pipework offer and are available immediately for all jobs small or large.
Commercial Pipework Commissioning – When pipework is installed in a new setting, the quality, safety and functionality of the work needs to be verified before it becomes operational. The Gas Safe Commercial Pipe Work Commissioning ticket qualifies the holder to legally undertake commercial pipework commissioning. This process is essential if you are planning to use pipes that have been turned off for long periods of time and need a safety guarantee before use.
