What is a Gas Safety Check and do I need one?
Many of us are familiar with the term Gas Safety Certificate – especially if living in rented accommodation, or if you’re a landlord yourself. However, often we’re unclear on the importance of ensuring that our properties are Gas Safe, and whether or not we need to ensure this at all.
The answer is, you do! Check the Boiler 24-7 guide to Gas Safety below:
Within your home or property, it is essential that each of your gas appliances are thoroughly checked annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer, just like ours here at Boiler 24-7.
Your appliances, by law, must be checked and serviced in line with the manufacturer’s guidelines. Any appliance left unchecked could lead to disastrous consequences, such as carbon monoxide poisoning. (Read the blog post here to learn more).
