Gas Safety Certificate

All landlords are required under Gas Safety Installation and Use Regulations 1998 to have their appliances annually checked to make sure that they are in safe working order. We at 24/7 heating solutions work with private landlords and letting agencies across Glasgow and surrounding areas to provide an efficient and reliable service to make certain that all appliances are certified as gas-safe giving peace of mind to both landlord and tenant.

We offer an in-depth gas safety inspection of the entire gas installation, from the meter control valve through the pipe work to every gas appliance in your property. Appliances are thoroughly checked and analysed according to all relevant safety legislation.

Meeting the legal requirements

We use a number of techniques which are required by law to make absolutely certain that an appliance is functioning within the required parameters set out by the manufacturers instructions. All appliances will be gas rated, inlet and working pressure taken and recorded where appropriate. We calculate requirements for ventilation should it be necessary in the case of flue-less and open flue gas appliances.

We carry out an analysis of the products of combustion as it enables us to determine the health of an appliance and we make sure that all safety requirements are taken care of, for example the placement of carbon monoxide alarms or making sure that cookers have the correct flexible hoses and are fitted with safety chains.

Duties of Landlords

Duties of Landlords are published in Regulation 36 of Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. Published by the Health and Safety Executive, UK.

This regulation details landlords' duties in respect of gas safety. There are two main duties on landlords. Annual safety checks on gas appliances and flues (and that a record is kept and issued, or in certain cases, displayed to tenants) and ongoing maintenance. Although related, these duties are separate and distinct.

In addition landlords must ensure that no gas fitting of a type that would contravene regulation 30 (e.g. certain instantaneous water heaters) is fitted in any room occupied or to be occupied as sleeping accommodation after the regulations come into force. This includes any room converted into such accommodation after this time.

Further detailed guidance for landlords on their duties under regulation 36 and how to meet them can be found on the HSE website or by calling a 24/7 Heating solutions Gas Safe registered engineer who will be more than happy to offer free advise.
