Plumb Center and Parts Center are offering deals on Testo flue gas analysers to their customers until February 2012 – and six lucky installers will also scoop a thermal imaging camera worth over £1,800.
Within the UK there are around 120,000 registered gas service engineers but only 45,000 currently use analysers.
But law changes, coming into effect in April next year, will require gas installers to hold Combustion Performance Analysis of Domestic Appliances (CPA1) certificates to show they can correctly use flue gas analysers. Installers without the correct training will have their licence suspended and won’t be able to fit gas fires or boilers.
The need for change was highlighted in an alarming report, published recently by the Gas Safety Trust. It said improving competency was a vital step in preventing needless deaths from Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
So many installers are recognising for the first time that carrying an analyser and knowing how to use it will be essential to their future.
Testo 327 analysers are designed for domestic applications, with three-year instrument and sensor warranty, the Testo 327 Flue Gas Analyser is multi-fuel and multi-purpose for measuring differential temperature, differential pressure and displaying CO, CO2, O2, ratio and efficiency. With kits that include all the required components used in the CPA1 assessment, plus the award winning training DVD, the choice becomes clear.
Parts Center and Plumb Center believe it is the perfect time to offer the following amazing deals to their customers:
- Testo 327-1 Standard Kit – £410, saving £89
- Testo 327-1 CPA1 Standard Kit – £529, saving £120

Having taken advantage of the deals, all installers wanting to be in with a chance of winning a Testo 875 Thermal Imaging Camera need to do is register at: www.partscenter.co.uk/testoprizedraw
The Testo 875 Thermal Imaging Camera is highly suited to the HVAC sector, detecting the smallest temperature differences to trace heating/hot water pipe work for leaks and blockages, checking underfloor heating as well as diagnosis of radiator condition and performance.
“Installers need to become CPA1 trained so it is important to have a really good quality, long lasting flue gas analyser in their kit. It is therefore the perfect time to launch this promotion,” said Testo’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Alison Jenkins.
“The thermal imaging camera is a really exciting piece of equipment that is the perfect aid to installers in everyday tasks so we are delighted to be able to offer six as prizes. Most installers can’t wait to get their hands on one,” she added.
