Gas Safety Inspection

We carry out gas safety inspections to properties in Cambridgeshire.

Landlords are legally required to carry out a gas safety inspection annually. This can be carried up to 2 months before it’s due date and still retain the anniversary date.

If you are buying or selling a property, or want to be sure of the safety of the gas appliances in your home, book your gas safety inspection today.

We can also issue automatic text and email reminders 1 month before the next inspection is due so that you do not forget.

What  do we do on a gas safety inspection?

  • Visual inspection of the gas installation, appliance(s) location, terminal, chimney/flue route/position and signs of incomplete combustion.
  • Visual inspection of casings and combustion chamber and seals.
  • Visual inspection of gas meter/emergency control valve for accessibility in an emergency, for maintenance and correct labeling.
  • Testing of the appliance burner pressure or gas rate, or both where necessary.
  • Combustion gas analysis where specified in the appliance manufacturer’s servicing and maintenance instructions.
  • Inspect that ventilation is clear and sufficiently sized, etc.
  • Conduct flue flow and spillage testing where appropriate for correct operation of flue.
  • Check all flame supervision devices and/or other safety controls for correct operation.
  • Investigate any evidence of unsafe operation of appliances.
  • Tightness test of the installation.
  • Issue an electronic copy of the inspection certificate.
  • If any unsafe appliances are found they will be labelled AR (at risk) or ID(immediately dangerous), a warning notice will be issued and the appliance will be turned off or disconnected from the gas supply where appropriate.
