Gas Safety Checks

Knowing your gas appliances are safe to use is important for any homeowner or landlord. Having evidence or proof that you appliances are safe provides even greater peace of mind. This is exactly what you get when instructing us to perform any servicing or fitting of gas appliances. Despite providing certificates still remaining a non-legal obligation we appreciate the value of these documents and provide them for every job that meets our criteria.

The information held on this certificate will confirm that the appliance is working safetly and meets the appropriate safety standards. The certificate will also include information such as when your appliance was installed and when you should next get it serviced.

We can't stress enough how important it is to keep your appliances regularly serviced. This keeps the appliance safe and ensures it is working efficiently. It is also recommended to have these checks carried out on a yearly basis.

Are you living in a rented property?

The responsibility for Gas Safety in your home falls on your Landlord. If renting a property you can ask your Landlord for a copy of the current Gas Safety Record. This will provide you with details of the gas appliances that have undergone their annual Gas Safety Checks and that they were carried out by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer, such as Ingleby plumbing.

All of the gas appliances in your property must be maintained correctly by your Landlord.

Are you a Landlord?

Landlords are responsible for providing their tenants with an up-to-date Gas Safety Record. By law, Landlords must have ALL the gas appliances in the tenanted property serviced regularly. The most common interval is once every 12 months and must be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer.

What information is on the Gas Safety Certificate?

  • Description and location of each appliance and/or flue checked
  • Name, registration number and signature of the Engineer who carried out the check
  • The date on which the appliance/flue was checked
  • The name and address of the Landlord (or agent if applicable)
  • Whether or not any defects were found in/on the appliance
  • The results of the operational checks carried out

Are appliance services and gas safety checks the same? In short the answer is 'almost'

In addition to the gas safety check a service will also include a thorough clean of the appliance. The steps that are carried out during a service or essential safety check are:

  • Confirm the chimney or flue are allowing the fumes to be safely released
  • Confirm enough fresh air is allowing gas to burn correctly
  • Confirm that the appliance is burning the gas correctly
  • Checking any safety devices within the appliance are operating correctly
  • Disabling the appliance if a fault is located

Building Regulation Compliance certificates After a new gas appliance (excluding flueless cookers) has been fitted, the Building Regulations in England and Wales require that the installation must be notified to your Local Authority. Your engineer needs to do this. Once your engineer notifies they have fitted a new gas appliance in your home you will receive a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate.
