A gas appliance safety check ensures an appliance:
  • Is properly set and adjusted so the gas burns correctly

  • Is suitable for the room it’s located in

  • Is physically stable, securely fitted and properly connected to the gas pipework

Your engineer will also make sure:
  • There’s an adequate and permanent air supply that’s suitable for the appliance installed

  • All safety devices are functioning properly

  • Any flues, chimneys and air vents are operating correctly

This can be extended to a full gas installation safety check, in which the engineer will:
  • Check the installation is in good condition by visually inspecting the pipework as far as reasonably practicable

  • Test the gas pipework to make sure there are no leaks

CO can enter buildings through shared vents, so if you do live in a property with a shared flue or chimney, be sure to share responsibility with other residents to get these checked out annually.
