CORGI launches a series of self-help videos for Brits and plumbers


A series of new how-to videos are being launched to give Brits tips and advice on how to look after their own homes.

CORGI has unveiled a number of new resources designed to help over 5000 Gas Safe Registered local engineers and consumers prepare for the winter onslaught.

Crucially, the videos also inform customers on when it’s time to call in the experts.

Commenting on the findings, Mark Leslie, chief executive officer of CORGI HomePlan said: “As the winter weather approaches, more problems occur. Handy demo videos allows us to minimise stressful situations and help customers know their limits when dealing with radiators or boilers. This ensures they stay safe and happy which is our job.”

The report coincided with similar findings by which revealed that the number of people requesting boiler repair services is set to incerease this year.
