Why Do You Need A Gas Safety Check?
The Gas Safety Regulations (1998), state that if you rent out a property, you must obtain a new gas safety certificate every 12 months.

What’s Involved In Getting A Gas Safety Check?
To obtain a gas safety certificate, you must have a gas safety check carried out by a gas safe registered heating engineer. The process of our gas safety checks involves the following:
- Checking your gas appliances for gas tightness. This will expose any leaks in the system. The tightness test will also reveal if there are parts of the system that are worn out and require replacement.
- Standing and working pressure tests on your test points.
- The burner pressure and gas rate will be checked against the data plate of the appliance manufacturer.
- Necessary ventilation checks.
- Flue flow tests which guarantee removal of combustion products such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.
- Flame failure devices will be checked to ensure their satisfactory operation.
- Appropriate checks will be carried out for physical stability.
If all of the gas safety checks listed above are satisfactorily met, our gas safe registered engineer will issue you with a gas safety certificate. If your property fails any of the gas safety checks, a certificate will not be issued. However, all is not lost. We will work with you to carry out the necessary work needed to help you achieve the gas safety certificate. All gas appliances will be checked to ensure that the occupants of the property are not exposed to risk. A poorly installed appliance, for example, could be leaking out carbon monoxide poisoning. Note that this gas does not have any odor, color or taste, and it kills silently, usually within two hours. Tenants have died due to such gas safety check negligence incidents.
