Most people use gas in their homes every day. From your boiler, to heat water and its radiators, to your gas stove or kitchen to provide meals for them and your family. Most of us would be lost without our gas appliances, and most of us don’t really think about it while working well and safely.

However, the disadvantage of using gas in your home is the potential danger that it can pose to you and your family. This is because if there is a any function in one of your devices or if something is disconnected as it should be, there is a risk of a carbon monoxide leak. Carbon monoxide is a very toxic gas that is very dangerous. The effects can vary from drowsiness to death, but because it is colorless and odorless, you are unlikely to know if there is a leak.
Gas safety controls were introduced as a legal measure to help protect people from the risk of carbon monoxide in their homes. If you are a homeowner or landlord, a gas safety check is crucial to protect the residents of your home. Owners are strongly advised to perform an annual gas security check in their home, and the owners are legally obliged to perform one on the properties that they rent out every year.
What happens during a gas safety check?
During a gas safety check, a registered Gas Safe technician performs the following checks:
- The heat input and pressure of all gas appliances. This is to verify that they are functioning at the optimum level.
- The chimney that is connected to your boiler or gas fire. This allows exhaust gases to leave the home, so they are essential for you or your tenants to be safe.
- The configuration of the gas appliance, for example, that your boiler is correctly installed, connected and burning properly.
- The air supply: that the air supply for every device is correct, because the gas needs it to burn cleanly and effectively.
- Security devices: to ensure that they work correctly.
Who must perform a gas safety check?
A trained and qualified engineer who has the right skills and experience to work with gas appliances must perform a gas safety check. Otherwise the check has no meaning and does not protect your property or family.
Only a registered Gas Safe installer may perform a gas safety check. Being registered with London Property Inspections provides proof of an engineer’s qualifications and experience, and hiring someone without this registration puts your security at risk and legally invalidates the check.
