Emergency Gas Plumber available throughout The Netherlands
Do you need an emergency gas plumber at your home or office? What appliances do you have at home which are supplied by the central gas? Every house supplied with gas, they have boilers at home. How does a boiler actually work? Have you thought the basic use of the boiler? The boiler is receiving water from the central water supply and fills up a tank. Once the water in the tank has come to the right temperature, the water is being exported to the radiators at home, so they can heat up. At the same time, hot water is being provided at the taps in your house. Once water, is being exported from the tank, cold water fills up the tank and the boiler starts working, in order to have all the time the same pressure in the tank.
Have you got a gas cooker as well? In this case, it has nothing to do with the boiler. The gas is being provided straight from the house supply on the cooker. This can cause a gas leak in the future, after a long time that has been used. Or even when your cooker needs to be replaced, a gas plumber must come to install it, so it will be safe.
So, what is the problem you are having at the moment? Have you noticed a gas leak? You shouldn’t smell gas at home, but if you do something is wrong. You must immediately report this problem to an emergency gas plumber to come to have a look. You have seen for sure in Hollywood movies where the whole house blows when somebody applies fire on a gas leak. In most cases, this is science fiction, because in order to for the central gas supply to blow you must have a massive amount of gas in the house, which just by inhaling it, you will faint, or apply fire right where is the gas leak. Imagine for example, how a gas lighter works. Why it doesn’t blow up when you light it? The gas supply is designed the same way that goes outwards, so in case of a fire, it cannot go back to the pipes and blow them. Even if you have read this and you think you are safe and sound, the gas leak must be fixed as soon as possible. Is better to cut off the central gas supply until help arrives.
Have you noticed that you have no hot water at home at all? Check the water pressure on the boiler. If you have no hot water and the water pressure in the boiler has dropped, it may be a problem with the water supply. There can be cases, where the central water supply has been damaged and the boiler can’t get supplied with water. You may notice a water leak on the floor, depending on how have the pipes in your house been installed. Once the place where the water is leaking has been fixed, the boiler needs resetting. A gas plumber is best fitted for the job.
In any case, you shouldn’t try to fix gas problems in the house by yourself. It doesn’t matter if is a gas leak, or problem with the boiler, you shouldn’t try to fix it by yourself at all the times. A qualified professional for this job is only able to do it. If you try to fix even the boiler, once you have read the instructions very well, so you know exactly what is going on, something may go wrong. Even if nothing will happen to you, it can cause some damage at home. That the insurance company you are having your house insured, won’t cover you for any damages caused to gas issues. So, you better keep that also in mind before you think to yourself, that you can do it. The one thing you can do is cut off the gas supply at home and call a professional.

Emergency gas plumber engineer:
What is an emergency gas plumber engineer? Have you thought how complicated it may be the whole gas installation in your house? Or even just the boiler? The gas boiler works by using your three house main supplies. Is using water(to heat up the water), gas (the main source of heating) and electricity(a very small amount of electricity that is used to power up and safety). A gas engineer must have very good knowledge in all those three, and especially how the gas is converted into power which heats up the water. That sounds very complicated, isn’t it? It is very complicated since you have no experience on the subject. An emergency gas engineer on the other side has spent many years of study and practice on the matter, so when the time would come, they will be able to fix it for you. But where is really the difference between an emergency gas plumber and an emergency gas plumber engineer? The gas engineer is more expert depending on the problem you are having. He will find the issue you are having, and he will find you the best solution.
Of course, even if you call for an emergency gas engineer, you can’t be for sure that he will be able to carry out the job. There are cases, where the boiler problem you are having is related to the central circuit you have at home. Once he has given you this diagnosis on the problem you are having with the boiler, he will ask for a qualified electrician to come to have a look on your electric feed to the boiler. An electrician or electrical engineer will be more fit for this issue, but at least you are in the right direction of having the problem sorted.
If it is not the issue with electrics, but it is with the boiler itself, he has to make some readings, like water pressure, in order to check what is wrong. Once he does the readings, he will have to open the covering lid of it, so he can have a deeper look inside your boiler. Once the problem has been identified, he will report it to you of course, and he will tell you possible solutions. If it is still in good conditions he will just fix it. Sometimes small parts can break down, which most of the emergency gas engineers carry with them, so they will be more efficient. If the problem can be fixed but it may occur again, he will let you know about the detail of the issue and will leave you to decide. But it will be probably temporary fixed.
If you are experiencing a water pressure problem with your boiler, then something is not right with your water supply. Probably the emergency gas engineer, he will refer you to a normal plumber to come to fix your water pipes at home. Once they are fixed, he will come to properly add the water feed in the boiler and make a test if it is working properly. You need to be at this time at home, because he will ask you to show him the radiators, so he will switch them all off. Once the water supply is back on, and the boiler looks like is working normal, he will make the radiators ”bleed”. The air in the pipes that are going to the radiators, must come out so they will be able to function properly. As soon as the radiators and hot water has been tested and they work fine, the water pressure problem in the boiler has been sorted.
Have you noticed a gas leak and you want to get an emergency gas engineer as soon as possible to sort it out for you?
