A gas safety check involves a one of our gas safe registered heating engineers inspecting your gas appliances checking the appliances are working correctly and will check the following:
- Gas appliances are on the right settings and are burning correctly with the correct operating pressure
- Ensure harmful gases are being removed from the appliance safely to the air outside
- That any ventilation routes are clear and working properly
- All the safety devices are working
The gas safety check will detect any defects which require remedial work. You should have a gas safety check every year. If you are a landlord this is the law.
What is a Service?
Whilst a gas safety check assesses the basic safety of a gas appliance a service will be a full check of the gas appliance. Our gas safe heating engineers will:
- Take the appliance apart to inspect it
- Will assess the physical condition of the appliance, installation pipework, air vents and any flues for deterioration
- Will carry out performance tests
- Will carry out any necessary remedial action or arrange for a quotation if required
Your gas appliances do need to be serviced regularly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Have your gas appliances serviced regularly will not only make sure they are safe to use, it will maintain the efficiency and performance of each appliance.
