A gas safety certificate or verification includes a registered Gas Safe engineer who inspects your gas equipment. They check whether the device works correctly and check the following four areas:
The gas appliances have the right configuration and burn well with the right working pressure
Harmful gases are safely removed from the device to the outside air
That the ventilation paths are free and work correctly
All security devices work.
The verification will identify any defect that requires repair work. A gas safety check must be carried out annually. If you are the owner, this is the law.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Some properties, mainly floors and apartments, are built with fireplaces that cannot be inspected because they are hidden behind walls or ceilings. The boiler pipes to which this information relates are only connected to sealed boilers with a fan. Registered Gas Safe engineers must be able to see the smoke that removes vapors from the boiler as part of the essential safety checks every time the boiler is used. Carbon monoxide detection alarms with room detection are no alternative to the ability to view the chimney and you still need to install inspection hatches to verify the combustion system.
It is recommended to install the inspection hatches as quickly as possible. From January 1, 2013, every registered Gas Safe technician will classify the boiler as Risk, meaning that he will shut down the boiler with your permission and formally advise you not to use it until the inspection hatches are installed. in the right places. Our goal is to make your life easier, including how to reserve your inspections.
