Gas Safety Certificates

Posted on October 11, 2012 · Posted in Gas Safety Certificate

Gas Safety Certificates are a legal requirement for landlords. They can give you peace of mind, knowing that your tenants are protected. A Gas Safety Certificate and annual boiler services are extremely important in order to check that there are no dangerous carbon monoxide leaks, which can prove fatal.

Paul Johnston, chief executive of the Gas Safe Register asserts that: “An annual gas safety check should be a top priority for every homeowner and landlords are legally obliged to provide all tenants with a copy of a current Gas Safety Record.”

According to the Gas Safe Register many people in the UK are not aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning and incorrectly associate diarrhoea, bad tastes in your mouth and a sore throat as symptoms. It is extremely important to be fully aware of the warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning. The main symptoms include dizziness, nausea, feeling faint and loss of consciousness. If you notice any one of these symptoms then you should immediately vacate your property.

Gas Boilers Servicing can also install carbon monoxide alarms in your homes which can alert you to any dangerous leaks. We offer very competitive prices for Gas Safety Certificates. It is illegal for someone to perform gas services if they are not on the Gas Safe Register. Gas Boilers Servicing engineers are all on the Gas Safe Register (formally CORGI registration) and carry around their Gas Safe ID cards at all times, so you can check their qualifications. If anyone is performing gas work that isn’t on the Register then you can report them.
