Plumbers4U carry out gas safety checks at competitive prices. Our Gas Safe Registered engineers can undertake both Appliance Safety Checks and Gas Installation Safety Checks on your premises and provide you with a Gas Safety Certificate.
Fuels such as gas produce carbon monoxide when they do not burn entirely. Carbon monoxide poisoning causes around 60 deaths and approximately 200 hospitalisations every year in the UK. Regular Gas Safety Checks which ensure that your gas supply and appliances are well maintained can prevent these deaths.
Homeowners are not legally obliged to have a Gas Safety Check, but it is advisable to do so. Landlords do however have a legal obligation to provide an annual Gas Safety Check which must be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. A Gas Safety Certificate may also be necessary for any insurance policies you have in place.
Our Gas Appliance Safety Check
For a gas Appliance Safety Check we examine all your gas appliances to make sure that they are safe and suitable for their location. We check fittings, safety features and that the gas is burning correctly. We also ensure that the flues and vents are clear and working correctly with an adequate air supply.
Our Gas Installation Safety Check
For a full Gas Installation Safety Check we not only check your appliances but also examine the pipes supplying your gas to make sure there are no leaks.
If you want to have extra peace of mind, as well as your annual checks, you can install carbon monoxide alarms to warn you or your tenants of the presence of carbon monoxide. It has been a legal requirement in England since 1st October 2010 to have a carbon monoxide alarm installed in the same room as a solid-fuel burning appliance. This requirement does not include gas appliances.
