A gas safety certificate isn’t like a gas service. It is fundamentally planned to examine any gas burning appliances including fires, cookers (fixed or mobile), boilers and water heaters to make sure that they are working safely and efficiently. The gas safety check can only be performed by a gas fitter registered with the Gas Safe Register.
As part of the test, Upkeepone will examine and check all the gas appliances in the building. This includes gas fires, boilers, hobs, water heaters and cooking appliances. Most Importantly, Upkeepone will visually investigate domestic and non-domestic boiler flues and pipes, and perform tightness tests to make sure no explosive gases are escaping into the home.
Other key points, Upkeepone will examine the efficiency of the gas burning and make sure all safety devices are working as they should, and will also examine that ventilation routes are unblocked and operating well.
Faulty gas appliances are likely to develop gas (carbon monoxide gas) poisoning. CO is colourless, odourless and tasteless nature makes it difficult to spot. Obviously, it can make you seriously ill and kill! This is why it’s illegal to organise safety checks with non-registered Gas safe engineers.
