Plumber vs. Heating Engineers: What’s The Difference?

When comparing a plumber to a heating engineer most people would think they are exactly the same but there is a difference. A plumber fits and maintains many areas that include dry or wet piping (the name of ‘plumber’ comes from the Roman name for lead which was the old form of most piping), and the heating engineer is specifically trained to install and maintain heating systems.

Heating Plumbers

A plumber is skilled with commercial, industrial or residential pipework; fitting bathrooms, showers, sinks, kitchen plumbing, drains and can fit heating systems, radiators and boilers. The plumber can maintain and repair any of these. The plumber needs, by law, to be a trained Corgi engineer and be registered by Gas Safe to fit any gas appliances including boilers.

Commercial Gas and Heating Engineer

A commercial gas engineer is similar to the heating engineer and is trained specifically to install, maintain and test heating systems and appliances. The heating engineers can maintain and repair most types of heating systems. They will always be fully trained and accredited by Corgi and be Gas Safe registered, so you know that your gas heating and appliances will be safe when fitted by them.
