As a minimum the following checks should be carried out as part of the gas safety inspection to ensure YOUR safety or the safety of YOUR TENANTS:

  • Check with the occupant to determine if they have had any problems or concerns with the gas appliances.
  • Check there are no gas leaks on the entire gas pipework installation, right from the gas meter.
  • We need to make sure each appliance is getting enough air to operate safely, too little air and CARBON MONOXIDE can occur.
  • Inspect gas installation pipework and any flexible connections.
  • Ensure all controls are working safely and correctly.
  • Check flues to each appliance are safe and intact, particularly important with new condensing boilers, a faulty flue can cause poisoning.
  • Ensure that the appliance is using the correct amount of gas at the correct pressure
  • Inspect the flame picture of any burners.
