Why choose gas water?
Gas Fitter – St Albans Solutions
Our professional gasfitters can help you choose and install your perfect gas hot water solution for your St Albans property, and there are plenty of reasons to choose gas over a traditional cylinder. People ask us “do you need a hot water cylinder with gas?”, and the answer is no! With no bulky storage cylinder to worry about finding space for, there’s also no loss of energy from stored hot water you’re not actually using.
Gas appliances only heat the water you need, when you need it, which saves you money. The water is instantly heated up by running through a gas califont tank, which is a non-invasive small tank, unlike the large traditional hot water cylinder that has to heat up over time. With gas water you can set the heating appliance to the automatic temperatures you want with smart controls, depending on the model you select and keep a controlled handle over your heating – which gives you peace of mind with little ones around.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Gasfitters are speciality installation experts that are qualified to install gas piping within your residential or business property correctly and safely, which means you can use reliable heated water or other gas appliances that are powered solely by gas, not electricity or solar. Gasfitting involves installing, repairing and maintaining your gas appliances and piping, which is a different skill set to plumbing – which deals in water pipes predominantly.
Yes, you absolutely need a professional gas fitter when installing a gas-powered appliance. It is reckless and dangerous to try and DIY this one, and actually illegal due to the risks involved. For your property to be properly compliant and covered by insurance, you need a certified gas fitter to undertake any gas pipework on your property. If you try to do your own gas fitting installation, repairs or maintenance, there could be serious consequences that are not worth risking, like allowing gas to leak into your home, causing damage, fires or harming your family’s health.
While you must have a registered Gas Safe engineer or gas fitter to connect water pipework to a gas boiler, there are some parts of the work that an unregistered person can carry out – although we wouldn’t recommend it. “Wet Work” includes installing water pipes or radiators, and these jobs, technically, can be carried out by an unregistered person.
It depends on the plumber. In order to legally be certified to be a gas fitter, you must have a Gas Safe qualification. If the plumbing expert also has a gas fitting certification, then yes, they can do both but is important to note that plumbers might not automatically have that certification, it’s an extra skillset. Gas fitters are a different kind of specialist, but it is easy to see where the confusion comes from as water heating can either be gas or from other power sources and lots of plumbers do offer both services for customer convenience. You need the right services for the right gas solution in your home – which we can help with!
