A comprehensive gas safety check ensures you and your property are protected against escaping gas.
You may think you would be obviously aware of this but it is surprising what we find whilst carrying out these checks – small amounts of gas escaping, usually into ventilated areas where it’s not easy to smell.
These are usually very quick to find and remedy, saving you from risks and unnecessary gas usage and cost.
The gas safety check covers:
• Assessment of your appliances
• Checking that each appliance is still safe to use as per the manufacturer’s instructions
• Checking that the seals protecting you from dangerous gases are fit for purpose
• Ensuring the appliance is using the correct amount of gas and burning it efficiently
Specialist equipment is used to check that the carbon monoxide levels being omitted are within safe limits, again reassuring you that you are Gas Safe for another twelve months.
Many mortgage lenders are now asking that gas appliances are checked on the property being purchased, that the above checks are carried out and a certificate issued. If you are buying a property and your lender doesn’t ask for this we recommend this is still carried out, otherwise you could be incurring further costs if the appliance isn’t safe or working correctly once you’ve moved in.
A gas safety check is like buying a car with a service history - it gives you peace of mind.
Similar to gas safety checks, all essential safety checks are carried out.
In addition, each appliance is stripped down and all components are checked and cleaned to ensure they are working per design, thus maintaining the parts for a longer life.
During this process the appliance can be finely tweaked to ensure optimum performance and efficiency. This means a maintained, efficient boiler not only runs smoother and is quieter, it's also much cheaper to run.
