Gas Safety Checks
We carry out annual gas services for our customers to make sure your boiler is working well. Unsafe gas appliances can cause gas leaks and fires.
These appointments are arranged by letter and are very important. Please make sure you’re home for your appointment and if you miss it for any reason, please get in touch to rearrange it straight away.
If you’re a leaseholder or you own your home through the shared ownership scheme, you’re responsible for your own gas safety checks. You should use a Gas Safe registered engineer to fit, fix and service your appliances. You can find an engineer at GasSafeRegister.co.uk or call 0800 408 5500.
