When it comes to the world of heating and plumbing, gas leaks are about as serious as they come. Nobody wants to have trouble with their water supply or find a blocked drain problem in their Southampton property. But for the most part, a water leak will only cause some water damage to your home of business premises. An improperly managed problem with your gas, on the other hand, can result in serious injury, even loss of life. That’s why No1PHD have a team of expert commercial gas engineers ready to deal with your gas emergencies as soon as physically possible. Just give us a call.
Commercial gas installations are subject to far more stringent regulations regarding safety than their residential counterparts. Sometimes insurance companies will require additional standards be met to provide things like public liability insurance. For that reason, commercial gas engineers have to be fully certified to perform any work on gas pipes or equipment. Beyond the potential danger to life—which cannot be understated—having your gas installations and repairs carried out by an unqualified or uncertified gas engineer could leave you open to many legal issues. No1PHD have the expertise to ensure that your gas repairs are carried out to all the necessary standards for your particular situation.
The most obvious sign of a gas fault is leaking. Gas has a distinctive smell, a smell that is added to it for the sole purpose of making leaks more noticeable. If you smell gas, you should contact us immediately on 08006906777. Other symptoms of a potentially less serious gas problem are gas appliances operating at less capacity. Gas ovens not getting as hot, boilers struggling to heat water, etc. One appliance acting up may just mean that appliance is faulty, however multiple gas-powered appliances misbehaving points to a gas problem in the building. If there is no smell then it is probably not too serious, but as a general rule, any gas problem should be treated as an emergency. It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially when No1PHD is only a call away.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

If you think you have a gas leak on your property, the first thing you should do is open any windows in the immediate vicinity. If you know where the gas mains tap is, turn it off as soon as possible. Next, you should try to usher any people out of the building—or at least away from the area—in which you have detected a gas leak. This can be difficult in schools and hospitals. Any sufficiently large organisation should have a protocol in place for exactly what to do in the event of a gas leak. Finally, when you can be relatively sure that nobody is in harm’s way—including yourself—call No1PHD and we will get one of our Southampton-based professionals to your premises as quickly as possible.
Gas faults are not to be taken lightly. Should you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having to deal with one, be it in a school, retail outlet, office block, or any other commercial or public sector building in the Southampton area, call No1PHD today on 08006906777 and let us take care of your problem.
After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
