What do our inspections involve?

To obtain a gas safe certificate, the following areas will need to be looked at by a gas safe engineer…

    • Gas appliances will be checked for tightness
    • If you have test points then standing and working pressure will be tested
    • The burner pressure and gas rate will also be checked against to the manufacturers data plate
    • Checks will be carried out for necessary ventilation
    • Flue flow will be tested
    • Flame failure devices will be checked for satisfactory operations
    • Appropriate checks will be carried out for physical stability

Should all of these areas be passed, you will then receive a gas safety certificate.

Providing comprehensive inspections

The first thing that our team will do is send out one of our certified expert technicians to your location, in order to perform inspections, it’s necessary to check all appliances within the structure, this is to make sure that there are no obvious problems found and that they meet with manufactures recommendations. In addition to this, we test both standing pressure and working pressure, provided that test points are given. We will also consider things like the burner pressure and the gas rate on the appliances, comparing the information which has been obtained during the inspection with the information in the manufacturer data. If it matches, then this is a good thing, if not then additional maintenance may be required in order for the inspection to be a pass.

We’ll also check the flue flow to guard against the possibility of emissions come back into the house and we always perform device checks used for flame failure, as well as the physical stability of the overall appliances themselves. We also take things a step further and check the ventilation inside the structure itself. It is essential that the ventilation doesn’t pose any problems, with regard to potential leaks or emissions problems. In other words the structure may be well ventilated and every appliance in the structure must be working properly in order for us to issue the certificate.
