It’s essential to perform a gas safety inspection on all gas appliances in your home, and it’s a legal requirement for landlords. This includes gas boilers, gas fires, hobs and any other appliances running on gas.
Only employ a legal Gas Safe registered engineer when having gas work carried out in your home.
Every registered gas engineer carries a Gas Safe ID card. Always ask to see the card and check their unique licence number with Gas Safe Register. The back of the card will also show which gas appliances they are qualified to work on.
If you smell gas or think there might be a gas leak, call the free 24 hour national gas number immediately on 0800 111 999.
If you suspect that someone is an illegal fitter or are worried about gas work carried out in your home, contact Gas Safe Register.
If a gas appliance isn’t properly serviced or maintained, not only may it be performing poorly, but it could be highly unsafe. Faulty or damaged equipment may emit lethal carbon monoxide gas (CO), putting your family or tenants at serious risk.
