Mulgas talk about tier 2 restrictions in West Molesey and how they affect locals needing emergency boiler repairs or just boiler work in general

With the easing of lockdown earlier this month, local boiler repair company Mulgas Ltd reached out to us about their services during the pandemic and what tier restrictions could mean for the locals of West Molesey who may be seeking boiler repair or emergency boiler repair services. Mulgas engineers have been known to repair 87% of boilers on their initial visit alone, and you can expect the same service to be delivered even during a pandemic, as all of Mulgas’ engineers are classed as key workers, who have the ability to work in homes even during most tier lockdowns. When a heating decides to call it a day, it’s understandable that’s it’s an urgent matter and gettin the boiler back on its feet again is the utmost of priorities.


The Health & Safety Executive has proposed that gas engineers only operate in homes and other properties if it is deemed important to the resident’s safety or well-being. Mulgas ask people to think, with this in mind, whether at this time it is absolutely appropriate for an engineer to visit a person’s home. As a general rule, if someone has no heating or hot water, most manufacturers will advise them to just order an engineering visit. If a person wishes to have a new boiler fitted, Only if this is deemed essential because of an old boiler being beyond repair or is no longer deemed safe to use. If you are generally looking to replace or upgrade an existing boiler that is otherwise in full working order, then this is not considered essential and you are advised to delay this until a later date. If you are interested in having a new boiler fitted and would like a quote, it may still be possible for us to provide you with a quote by video call.


The official government advice is as follows:


“Work carried out in people’s homes, for example by tradespeople carrying out repairs and maintenance, can continue, provided that the tradesperson is well and has no symptoms. Again, it will be important to ensure that Public Health England guidelines, including maintaining a two-metre distance from any household occupants, are followed to ensure everyone’s safety. No work should be carried out in any household which is isolating or where an individual is being shielded, unless it is to remedy a direct risk to the safety of the household, such as emergency plumbing or repairs, and where the tradesperson is willing to do so. In such cases, Public Health England can provide advice to tradespeople and households. No work should be carried out by a tradesperson who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.”
