Gas Safety Certificate London and Boiler Service Landlords Essential Maintenance Tasks List

Gas safety and boiler service are essential maintenance tasks that homeowners and landlords must undertake to ensure the safety, efficiency, and longevity of their gas appliances. Here's an overview of gas safety and boiler service:

  1. Gas Safety Inspection: A gas safety inspection involves checking all gas appliances, flues, and pipework for safety and compliance with regulations. This inspection is typically conducted by a Gas Safe registered engineer. During the inspection, the engineer will:

    • Check for gas leaks and signs of corrosion or damage to pipework.
    • Inspect gas appliances such as boilers, gas cookers, and gas fires for proper operation and safety.
    • Test gas pressure and combustion to ensure appliances are functioning efficiently.
    • Verify that ventilation requirements are met to prevent the build-up of harmful gases like carbon monoxide.
  2. Issuing a Gas Safety Certificate: If all gas appliances pass the inspection and meet safety standards, the Gas Safe engineer will issue a Gas Safety Certificate (CP12 certificate). This certificate confirms that the gas appliances have been checked and are safe to use. Landlords are legally required to provide a copy of this certificate to their tenants within 28 days of the inspection and to keep a record for at least two years.

  3. Boiler Service: Regular boiler servicing is essential to maintain the efficiency, reliability, and safety of your heating system. A boiler service involves a qualified engineer inspecting and cleaning the boiler to ensure it operates safely and efficiently. During a boiler service, the engineer will:

    • Check for leaks, corrosion, and signs of wear and tear.
    • Clean and inspect key components such as the burner, heat exchanger, and flue.
    • Test the boiler’s controls and safety devices to ensure they are functioning correctly.
    • Check gas pressure and combustion to optimize boiler performance and efficiency.
  4. Benefits of Gas Safety and Boiler Service: Regular gas safety inspections and boiler services offer several benefits, including:

    • Ensuring the safety of occupants by detecting and preventing gas leaks and carbon monoxide emissions.
    • Improving the efficiency of gas appliances, which can reduce energy bills and carbon emissions.
    • Extending the lifespan of gas appliances by identifying and addressing potential issues before they escalate.
    • Complying with legal requirements for landlords and homeowners to maintain safe and properly functioning gas appliances.

In conclusion, gas safety inspections and boiler services are essential maintenance tasks that homeowners and landlords should prioritize to ensure the safety, efficiency, and reliability of their gas appliances. By working with qualified professionals and scheduling regular inspections and services, property owners can protect their investment and the well-being of occupants.

Super Fast Service

We needed the FRA done for our new building urgently. Called their customer service around 11am and they arranged someone to be on site in the evening around half 6 same day. Although we had to pay extra for getting this arranged but it was worth. Time was more important for us than the money. Received the report within 48 hours too. Saved us from a big trouble. Definitely be using them again for new projects. Thank you
