About Us

A Touch of Gas is a family run business, set up by Lachlan Liddle in March 2011. Lachlan made the decision to form A Touch of Gas after completing his gas apprenticeship with Scottish Gas in 2000, and spending several years gaining experience in the gas and heating industry. Lachlan’s expert knowledge in servicing and repairing fires, means that we are proud to be one of Scotland’s few recommended contractors for fire manufacturers Gazco and Drugasar. We also work closely with several fire suppliers in Edinburgh, installing high end fires.

Over the last four years, we have developed a solid customer base, and carry out work all over Central Scotland. Although most of our work is based in Edinburgh and the Lothians, we also regularly travel to the Scottish Borders, Fife, Glasgow and even Aberdeen on occasion to carry out work for our customers.

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with comprehensive advice, high-quality professional work and an extensive level of service. We guarantee that all of our work is carried out to a high standard and we are proud of the clean, tidy environment we leave your home in when we leave.
