If you are a landlord, getting a Gas Safety Certificate every twelve months is a legal requirement. It’s your obligation to stick to the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, and you must use a Gas Safe registered engineer to have all the pipe work, gas appliances and flues inspected.
The Gas Safe engineer will check each of your gas appliances for gas tightness, gas rate and burner pressure rate. They’ll also check the flue flow and ensure that there is good ventilation. When the engineer has completed their inspection and are satisfied with the condition of your appliances, they shall issue you with a Gas Safety Certificate. They may also add notes with any safety recommendations.
You only have to get a gas safety inspection each year, but it’s good practice to get gas appliances checked after a change of occupancy. Then you’ll know that every one of your appliances are safe for the new tenants. It’s also a good idea for you to install a carbon monoxide alarm to alert tenants to carbon monoxide leaks, which can cause poisoning that may end in death.
If you reside in your premises, there’s no legal necessity for you to get a Gas Safety Certificate. But it is a good idea to have an inspection annually to keep you and your family safe. This paired with a boiler service will ensure that all your gas appliances are working safely and efficiently.
