Get your appliances checked

Don’t risk it – get your appliances safety checked and keep you and your family safe

The risk of carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty gas appliance is a real one that must not be ignored. Any gas appliances in your property needs to be safety checked  annually and serviced at the intervals specified by the manufacturer, by a Gas Safe registered engineer. It’s also advisable to inspect gas pipework at the same time the Gas Safe registered engineer is carrying out a gas safety check on an appliance. Remember to do this annually and be aware that this is the law for landlords.

Gas Safe Register

If you want to be sure of when to book an engineer, you can register for the free reminder service at StayGasSafe.co.uk, an official site by the Gas Safe Register, and get an email or text at the time the check is due.

What is an Appliance Safety Check?

An appliance safety check at a minimum includes all of the checks and tests to ensure the appliance is safe to operate, for example:

  • It is correctly set and adjusted to ensure the gas is burning correctly
  • It is of a type suitable for the room in which it is located
  • It is physically stable, securely fitted and properly connected to the gas pipework
  • There is an adequate and permanent air supply suitable for the appliance type installed
  • Any flues or chimneys are operating correctly
  • All safety devices function correctly
