    "Ideally, you should as the system will need draining & you can then run into issues getting the boiler going again which you would definitely need a gas engineer for."

    "Hi, you need a plumber they don’t need to be qualified as long as they're not removing the front case of the boiler if they remove the case from the boiler they need to be gas safe registered."

    "I would certainly recommend it. Various factors affect the installation that a DIY-er wouldn't have the knowledge or skill to complete.

    You wouldn't hire a chef to be a doctor type of scenario."

    "No, there are no regulations to say you need a professional. But I would highly recommend you do, over the years I’ve seen a lot of DIY or handyman jobs done on heating systems, and frankly, I’ve not seen a job done correctly yet."
