How is a gas safety inspection carried out?

A gas safety inspection is carried out by checking if the gas appliances are working properly during our engineers’ detailed inspection. We’ll check that your gas appliances are functioning how they should and that your tenants are not at risk from gas leaks. ​

Our heating engineers will also carry out a flue flow check. This is an important step of the gas safety inspection because it will ensure that the dangerous gases are being safely ventilated and removed from your property.
