The grand tour of the gas safety check
You have arranged for an engineer to come to your property. The questions going through your mind will likely be:
What will the engineer be checking? Will the engineer just take a look around or will he/she fix anything?
When will I receive my Gas Safety Certificate once the engineer has been?
The following will answer these queries as well as take you through what to expect when the inspection takes place.
The certified Gas Safe Registered engineer will check:
• All gas appliances
• The gas supply
• The gas fire (if you have one in your home)
• The gas cooker
• The heating and hot water (boiler)
