Boilers are an integral part of our domestic configurations. They heat our homes and our water supply, but are potentially dangerous and therefore require periodic checks. All gas appliances in your home must be verified once a year by a London Property Inspections’s engineer and gas safety check according to the manufacturer’s instructions. In addition to the crucial point that a device that is not under control can leave behind the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, the guarantee of a new boiler can be invalidated if it is not verified.
It is also a good idea to inspect your gas pipeline. If you are the owner, it is a legal requirement that devices and pipes are checked.
Certainly: around four thousand people a year visit London Property Inspections with carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of a leak in the boiler. And on average about 50 of these people die. This is known as the silent killer and, according to the Telegraph article; British homes are at greater risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. This article shows how vulnerable we are.
Save money: a qualified boiler engineer ensures that your boiler runs smoothly and does not waste energy, important factors for saving money and reducing our carbon footprint.
More now means less later: boiler repair in London can be quite expensive. By having a technician regularly (for example, once a year), you ensure that the boiler works correctly. If you leave it and a serious problem arises, this can mean a considerable design for a new boiler.
Certainly, certain: some home insurance policies require regular boiler checks, so keep this in mind because you do not want a claim to be made that is not paid (but you still have to check with your insurance company).
Is it not your business? Oh yes that’s it! Companies are legally obliged to maintain and keep gas and oil equipment and facilities safe with an annual gas safety certificate. If you are a businessman or landlord, you must provide a genuine gas safety certificate for gas boilers.
