How much does it cost?
A Gas Safety Inspection is normally £55* (+£10 per open flue or chimney if applicable),
; this includes up to three appliances, which covers nearly all
domestic properties. Additional appliances are charged at £15
per appliance. As we are already at the premises, discounts on
other services or inspections can be obtained if they are carried
out at the
same time as a gas safety inspection. See our

What do we do during a
gas safety inspection?
general terms we assess your installation and appliances for
dangers, both present and potential. This largely involves checking
the gas pipework is not leaking, checking appliances have been
installed and are operating safely, and checking flues and
ventilation are adequate and are operating effectively.
What are we looking
Primarily, danger to life or property, or conditions where
appliances or installations could deteriorate. We do this by
standard checks, tests, and comparing against the gas regulations,
British Standards, and manufacturer’s instructions.
What will your record
of inspection include?
Most installations and appliances are declared as safe, but most
will also have some fault(s) noted. This is often because
regulations and standards have been (and most likely will continue
to be) revised upwards since it was installed.
These faults fall into three categories; Not to Current Standard; At
Risk; and Immediately Dangerous.
Not To Current Standard – The gas appliance
or installation is not installed in accordance with current
installation practise. It is safe, but it is up to us to advise you
on whether you should bring it up to standard. (This is a larger
subject – follow this
link if you would like to read
more on this). As it is safe, you
would receive certification stating this.
At Risk – These are fairly serious faults with the potential to become
dangerous. An example given by Gas Safe is the use of plastic or
hose pipe instead of the appropriate materials for the gas pipework. These faults would attract a notification of an unsafe
installation, and a warning notice.
– Fairly self explanatory, something is dangerous. An example
could be a gas leak. These faults would also attract a
notification of an unsafe installation, and a warning notice.
