What is a Registered Gas Installer (RGI)
An RGI is an installer who has at least a GID (Gas Installer Domestic) qualification or equivalent in gas safety which makes him/her competent to carry out gas works. He/She will also have a valid insurance and will have paid the annual subscription fee which entitles him/her to be on the register of RGIs and carry an ID Card with a valid date.
Note: Registered Gas Installers (RGI) are separate entities to Safe Energy Ireland i.e. businesses or sole traders and Safe Energy Ireland have no control over their methods and practices except in relation to Gas Safety. Safe Energy Ireland would at all times recommend customers to contact a least three RGI to compare cost, quality and service issues before entering into any contract. As RGIs are separate businesses or sole traders, RGII cannot instruct any RGI to enter into a contract for services.
Benefits of using an RGI
By using an RGI you have the peace of mind that you are dealing with a trained installer who has the required expertise in gas safety to ensure your gas installation is safe.
How do I recognize an RGI
Every Registered Gas Installer (RGI) possesses an ID Card that must be renewed on a yearly basis. The ID number on the card follows the format Rxxxx, accompanied by a photo of the installer. The card features a blue background with the current year, displaying the RGI brand and a QR code that links to the RGI website, as shown below.
It is important to ensure that the card is up-to-date. If in doubt, contact us at 091- 480974.
