When you make an emergency call

You’ll be put through to an experienced operator, who’ll ask you a few questions and dispatch an engineer who’ll arrive within one or two hours.

The operator will also give you some advice about what to do while you’re waiting for an engineer to arrive, such as opening doors and windows. Once they’ve arrived, they won’t leave until the situation has been made safe.

Just so you know

Our emergency engineers aren’t covered to make repairs to appliances or internal pipework.

Also, depending on the advice you’re given by our engineer, you may need to contact a Gas Safe Registered engineer to make further repairs to appliances or pipework.
