Accreditations & Awards

As a plumbing and heating company it is imperative that we are fully compliant and qualified to carry out the work we are tasked with. We are fully qualified in a variety of disciplines, along with being accredited installers of certain brands, enabling us to offer our clients that extra level of service.

Please read on to see our qualifications and accreditation.



The Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering is the professional body for the UK plumbing and heating industry, to which we are accredited. All of our plumbing and heating engineers are fully qualified when they complete their NVQ level 2 & 3 during their apprenticeships.

Gas Safe

As a Gas Safe qualified company, our engineers are certified to work on any of the domestic gas appliances in your household, including new installations, breakdowns, repairs, servicing, and Gas Landlord Safety Certification in both natural gas and LPG. It is a legal requirement that anyone who works on any type of gas appliance or pipework is Gas Safe registered, so you can have the confidence that any work carried out is fully compliant. Our engineers are also qualified to install both vented and unvented hot water cylinders. We also have commercial gas qualified engineers, meaning we can offer the same service on commercial systems.


Being based in the countryside and surrounded by small towns and villages, it’s important that we’re qualified to work on oil boilers and systems where there is no local gas. OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association) is the governing body for oil burning appliances. By having OFTEC registered engineers we are able to install and commission new oil boilers and oil tanks.


HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approvals Scheme) is the governing body for approving biomass and solid fuel heating appliances, fuels and services. Predominantly, we use our HETAS qualification for the supply and installations of wood burning stoves for our domestic customers.
