Hi after advice my customer is looking to cap off main gas supply remove boiler from wall, pipe work and all radiators taken away as he is switching to electric radiators powered by his current solar panels. I'm not gas Safe but can carry out all the draning down of system remove rads etc. Question is am I legally allowed to remove the boiler off the wall and all pipe work leading to boiler if we get a gas Safe to cap the mains first so all pipe and boiler will be dead? As it's a good customer of mine he wants me to do as much of work as possible but if I'm not allowed to touch boiler once dead then I have to pass it to Registered Gas Engineer Thanks for advice

Don't see why not. Electric cooking too? If a 'Registered Professional Gas Engineer' is dealing with the decommissioning of gas line.. I would suggest you are good to go. After all it will only water and heating pipes left and an old metal box no longer connected to a gas supply.

Thanks for quick replys and advice guys, the cooker is electric, only boiler runs of gas will speak to him about getting meter removed didn't think of that.

If you post your location someone on here might be able to disconnect the gas for you.

Has someone competent checked the design of the new all-electric system? During the part of the year that one needs heating PV panels are not going to be producing much energy.

Had a customer who did this. 4 out of 7 of the electric radiators caught fire. He had to put CH back in.

Customers own electrician is carrying out fitting of electric rads I won't have anything to do with that side of things, I do have my doubts about relying on the solars to do all the work!
