Gas Safety Certificates explained
Gas Safety Certificate is also known as a Gas Safety Check or, by its technical term: a CP12. In essence, the purpose is to make sure that all your gas appliances, such as your hob, gas fier and boiler are working correctly, efficiently and safely.
A Landlord’s Gas Safety Certiricate is a legal requirement by the landlord for any tenanted property.
Whilst a Home Gas Safety Certificate is not yet a legal requirment for homeowners, we strongly reccomend it for safety and it is often required by insurance companies.
Manufacturers recommend that a boiler service is done once a year by a registered gas safe engineer. Without an annual boiler service, the warranty on a boiler can be invalidated. Like a car the boiler’s service record need to kept up to date.
Our engineers will ensure that all the internal parts of your boiler are clean and that your boiler is working to maximum effiency

Carbon Monoxide Alarms
A tiny investment that brings a huge amount of peace of mind. Carbon Monoxide kills over 50 people a year in the UK. it is an odourless gas that is created when incomplete combustion takes place. This can occur with gas appliances or solid fuel appliance like wood burning fire. As well as regular maintenance of these applianes, it is strongly reccomended that a CO (Carbon Monoxide) Detector is installed in the room of the appliances and the rooms that the flue(s) pass through.
What is PAT testing?
PAT testing is the examination of an electrical appliance to ensure it is safe to use.
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition, and The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
- Where appliances are used by employees.
- Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, colleges, hotels, shops etc..
- Where appliances are supplied or hired.
- Where appliances are repaired.
The level of inspection and testing required is dependent upon the risk of the appliance becoming faulty, which in turn is dependent upon the type of appliance, the nature of its use and the environment in which it is used.
