Gas Safety / Annual Boilers Servicing
A gas safety check and annual boiler service is primarily designed to inspect any gas appliances including boilers, cookers and fires (permanent or portable) to ensure they are working correctly and safely. A gas service involves an in-depth inspection of gas appliances, pipework, vents and flues, a gas safety check is designed to check the following:
- The appliance is operating at the correct operating pressure.
- There is an adequate air supply to the appliance and that it is burning gas correctly.
- That flues and chimneys are clear and enable the appliance to emit gases and fumes safely to the outside.
- That all safety devices on the appliance such as cut out devices are working correctly.
Failure to have your gas appliances inspected regularly may lead to harmful gases such as carbon monoxide escaping into your home. The NHS website offers more information on carbon monoxide poisoning and what to look out for.
In order to carry out your gas inspection we require your co-operation. Once a year we will require you to give access to a Gas safe engineer to carry out the nessesary work.
The leaflet 'Annual Gas Safety Check - Keeping you Safe' explains all about what to expect at the service and what happens when we can't gain access to undertake this VITAL work
