Gas Safety & Carbon Monoxide detection Edinburgh

What is a gas safety check or landlord certificate ?

A gas safety check involves a Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting your gas appliances.
They will check the appliance is working correctly and will check the following four areas:
Gas appliances are on the right setting and burning correctly with the correct operating pressure
Harmful gases are being removed from the appliance safely to the air outside
That any ventilation routes are clear and working properly &
all the safety devices are working
The check will identify any defects which require remedial work. You should have a gas safety check every year. If you are a landlord this is the law
