Homeowners and Landlords Inspections and Gas Safety Certificates

Efficient Plumbing & Heating Services Ltd takes gas safety seriously and all of our Gas Safe Registered engineers are qualified to undertake gas safety inspections to keep you and your tenants safe!

In 1996 the government passed a law that requires all landlords, who rent either part or all of a property, to have all household gas appliances and pipes checked every 12 months and have a Landlord gas safety certificate issued to this effect.
A gas safety certificate is especially important, because it certifies that your gas fired appliances and gas pipes are up to proper safety specifications and building management regulations.
This is especially important if, heaven forbid, there is an accident or fire in your building, as it can have a profound impact on liability in such an event. It is also extremely important to ensure that health and safety requirements are met, because almost all of the components of the inspection are targeted towards critical joints and overall system integrity. If there are issues in any of these areas, an inspection every 12 months should be sufficient to find and rectify it before it becomes an issue.

What does a Landlord Gas Safety Inspection include?

  • Check appliance for gas tightness
  • Check standing and working pressures if test points are available
  • Check burner pressure/gas rate against manufacturers guidlelines
  • Check for satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation
  • Test flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion
  • Check satisfactory operation of all the flame failure devices
  • Check for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets (where appropriate)
  • Investigate any evidence on unsafe operation and report to the person responsible.

 

What does a home owners gas safety inspection include?

Basically the same as the landlord inspection above apart from the fact that it is not a legal requirement if you don’t rent the home or premise that the boiler resides.

Having said that, it is extremely good practice to have an annual Gas safety inspection done to maintain the safety of that product each year and iron out potential problems before they arise!

Efficient plumbing & heating offer a discounted price if you have a Gas Safety inspection and service done at the same time. Thus saving you money and keeping your boiler safe and in top condition.
