Shortage Of Gasfitters Around Hamilton

Finding a gas fitter in Hamilton is proving to be a tough feat. As more and more people are wanting gas work done, the demand is just not being met, and finding a registered gasfitter to do your work gets harder every day.

As a result of this, many people are being tempted to use unregistered tradesmen to do their gas work for them. This may seem like a good solution, but we beg to differ. Here is why.

Unregistered gas fitters’ work is not guaranteed, mean the quality can vary to say the least. When not done correctly, gas work can cause serious property damage and even harm or death. Gas is not something to play with, so it is extremely important to use someone who knows what they are doing.

Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board chief executive Max Pedersen commented “The types of problems a person can face if the work is not done correctly ranges from significant property damage even to death.” He also said that were serious safety risks with hiring someone who isn’t registered. Every plumber, gasfitter and drainlayer needs to be licensed with the board in order to operate legally in New Zealand.

The other thing to remember is that if you need to make an insurance claim, should something go wrong, and the insurance company finds out you used an unregistered gasfitter, they won’t cover your claim. This can cause you serious issues even years after the job has been done.

What then are the benefits of using a registered gas fitter? Being registered means they have passed the rigorous training that is required in order to get the qualification and proved their knowledge, understanding and competence in the field. They have proven their skills in a series of tests and exams in order to ensure that everyone who is registered does top quality work. When you hire someone who is registered, you can be sure that you are getting an expert who knows his way around gas installations and that yours will be safe, fit for use and last the test of time.
