Commercial Specialists

We are specialists in the field of commercial installations and gas safety certification. We can provide commercial gas works for all types of domestic and residential properties, commercial gas equipment, hot and cold services, pipework and appliances.

Gas Safety Regulations

The gas safety (Installations and use) regulations were introduced by the government in an attempt to combat the increasing number of gas related safety incidents. Many insurers require proof of a commercial gas certificate for properties to continue with cover.


Landlords have a duty to ensure that the gas appliances and flues they provide for tenants' use are maintained in a safe condition at all times and checked for safety each year by a Gas Safe registered installer. We are experienced in providing this service.


We are one of the Fylde’s leading providers of domestic and commercial gas safety certificates and cover all types of commercial properties including Domestic Dwellings, Hotels, Guest Houses, Schools, Colleges, Restaurants, Café’s and Commercial Kitchens.

Renewable Energy

With the ever increasing costs of fuel it gives us good reason to investigate different ways of reducing our utility bills.

Solar Thermal

Solar Thermal is the installation of solar collector panels that convert sunlight into thermal energy for residential and commercial domestic hot water demand. Solar thermal is suitable for all domestic and commercial properties. It is especially beneficial to properties where there is a high demand for hot water such as Housing, Hotels, Swimming pools and Commercial premises.

Biomass Energy

Biomass systems burn wood pellets, chips or logs to power central heating and hot water boilers. Biomass boilers burn biomass fuels extremely efficiently and use the heat produced to provide heating and hot water. They can also be more cost effective and efficient than fossil fuel boilers. We believe that biomass will have a large role in the future of the heating industry.

Ms. Kathryn Riley

"First Class"

May I take this opportunity to say how impressed I was with the service provided from Read & Errington. I was so impressed with the speed of the assessment, the follow up visit and personal service whenever I rang. The workmen who attended were first class, started early and were tidy, professional and very knowledgeable. Please pass on my thanks, I am not one to dish out praise lightly or often so it is praise indeed if I am saying it!

Mr & Mrs Richardson

“Highest Standard of Quality”

Dear Read & Errington, We would like to thank you for the work carried out at the property above during the last week. Your installer did a very good job at installing out new gas central heating system with minimum disruption to us and to the house itself, and to the highest standard of quality. The system is easy to use and the wireless controller is easy to understand and set. We would definitely recommend Read & Errington to family and friends.

Mr M. Leigh JP

I would be grateful if you could thank your installation staff for a most efficient and tidy installation, they were both professional and a pleasure to have working in the building.  The installer arrived at the allocated time explained what they would be doing, the electrician arrived on time and the system was commissioned and the workings explained before leaving, it is working perfectly.  Kind regards.
