Gas heat­ing? For the best ser­vice al­ways use a lo­cal RGI in­staller

Wexford People - - NEWS -

SINCE 2006, the Com­mis­sion for En­ergy Reg­u­la­tion (CER) has worked with the gas in­dus­try to put in place a new reg­u­la­tory sys­tem to su­per­vise the work of gas in­stall­ers with re­spect to safety. This new statu­tory-based reg­u­la­tory sys­tem has re­placed the pre­vi­ous vol­un­tary reg­is­ter oper­ated by Bord Gaìs.

What is a Reg­is­tered Gas In­staller (RGI)

An RGI is an in­staller who has at least a GID (Gas In­staller Do­mes­tic) qual­i­fi­ca­tion or equiv­a­lent in gas safety which makes him/her com­pe­tent to carry out gas works. He/She will also have a valid in­surance and will have paid the an­nual sub­scrip­tion fee which en­ti­tles him/her to be on the reg­is­ter of RGIs and carry an ID Card with a valid date.

Note: Reg­is­tered Gas In­stall­ers (RGI) are sep­a­rate en­ti­ties to RGII i.e. busi­nesses or sole traders and RGII have no con­trol over there meth­ods and prac­tices ex­cept in re­la­tion to Gas Safety. RGII would at all times rec­om­mend cus­tomers to con­tact a least three RGI to com­pare cost, qual­ity and ser­vice is­sues be­fore en­ter­ing into any con­tract.

Ben­e­fits of us­ing an RGI

By us­ing an RGI you have the peace of mind that you are deal­ing with a trained in­staller who has the re­quired ex­per­tise in gas safety to en­sure your gas in­stal­la­tion is safe.

How do I rec­og­nize an RGI

Each RGI car­ries an ID Card which is re­newed an­nu­ally. The ID on the card is a num­ber in the for­mat Rxxxx and the photo is one of the in­staller. En­sure the card is in date.
