The sale and use of counterfeit spare parts continues to be an issue for the heating sector, with installers under increasing pressure to cut costs wherever possible. But replacing parts on gas appliances with unapproved non-genuine spares is essentially cutting corners, and has a wide range of quality, safety and legal implications.

It can also harm an installer's reputation.
