Gas Safety Inspection
How much does it cost?
Please see our Price List page for details.
What do we do during a gas safety inspection?
In 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 for?
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; Advice; At Risk; and Immediately Dangerous.
Advice – Fairly self-explanatory.
At Risk – These are 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.
Immediately Dangerous – 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.
