All Gas appliances in your holiday home should be serviced annually to keep them in a safe and efficient condition (this is a legal requirement in certain circumstances, see sub-letting below). Properly maintained appliances are safe in use and should be no cause for concern. The service should include:

  • Ventilation check (air inlets are clear and adequate)
  • Flue check (smoke spillage test)
  • Appliance safety devices are working correctly
  • Appliances are safe for further use
  • A check for gas leaks and condition of pipework and hoses

This work must only be carried out by a gas installer who is Gas Safe (the Council for Registered Gas Installers) registered and carries an I.D. card covering their competence. Always ask for a Gas Safety Inspection Record form to be provided for the work carried out.
