It is absolutely vital that you check all gas appliances on a regular basis, as not doing so can be extremely dangerous. We recommend completing checks as soon as you move into a new home and that you continue to have yearly inspections afterwards. By doing so, you ensure that you and your family remain safe throughout the year.
Why Have Gas Safety Inspections?
It is absolutely vital that you inspect all gas appliances at least once a year. This is because poorly maintained or broken appliances can release harmful fumes into the air. These harmful fumes have the potential to be deadly. Some of the types of appliances that you should check every year include:
- Gas fires
- Gas cookers
It is also important to not assume that the previous owner has kept up-to-date with these inspections. A gas safety inspection won’t take long at all, and could potentially be a life-saving investment.
If you are a landlord, you should also know that having all gas appliances tested every year is required by law. Failing to keep up with these inspections could result in prosecution. If you are a tenant in a rented property and don’t think that your appliances have been tested recently, we urge you to contact your landlord straight away. We regularly work with landlords, so know exactly what is needed when it comes to inspecting gas appliances in rented properties.
