In their shoes with Andy Girbow our gas engineer

Andy Girbow our gas engineer

Andy is one of our Prime gas engineers who has recently joined Acis as part of Prime. He has worked as a gas service engineer for the past 12 years with other partner contractors of Acis.

Andy is a real character and has a passion for fishing and is a massive fan of the Mariners – Grimsby Town FC!

Andy said: “Gas safety checks are a legal requirement and we have to check customers boilers for any dangers. There are many risks that you can encounter if you do not get your gas safety check done, such as carbon monoxide poisoning that can seriously damage the health of you and your family. It is likely you could end up in hospital or worse.”

“A gas safety check is quick, easy and no hassle at all for the customer. All we do is a 40 minute check on your boiler or an hour check if you have a fire fitted. Nothing is affected at all and it is a very quick check.”

“With everything in house and Prime being part of Acis communication between the office and repairs has really improved and I feel the customers will get a more efficient service because of it.”

“For me the best thing about my job is meeting so many people. I get to meet so many interesting characters especially in more rural areas like Caistor and Market Rasen.”

“I used to do a gas service for a few bomber pilots from the war and their stories were incredible. It’s one of the best things about my job and I get a great sense of satisfaction helping and talking to people.”
