About Gas & Renewable Services

The People

Welcome to our website.  We hope the information included here is useful.  Please feel free to contact us for chat about your requirements and we will be happy to help.

Gas & Renewable Services is owned and run by Chris Rood.  We are based between Castle Cary & Somerton.  Chris is a rather jovial chap who can be caught whistling a cheery tune at the break of dawn even on the bleakest of days.  Chris comes from a family of plumbers and engineers and has been in the industry since 1997 when he started working with his dad.  He’s a modest bloke, who takes pride in his work and is exceptionally hard working and conscientious.  The vast majority of customers come through word of mouth or via recommendations from other trusted tradesmen and businesses.
Chris is happy to discuss your requirements whether its a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate that you require, a combination of renewable energy options or first and second fix plumbing & heating systems on a new build property.  His costs are reasonable and written estimates are always provided.
