Gas Safe Certificate


Heppelthwaite the Red Van Plumbers undertake thousands of gas safe certificates for homeowners, landlords and commercial properties. We offer a very comprehensive service to ensure homes and businesses are 100% gas safe. It is recommended by the Gas Safe authority that a gas safety check is carried out on a annual basis, and that work on any gas appliance is only done by a registered gas safe engineer. It is the law for landlords to have an annual gas safe certificate.

Why have a gas safety check?

Faulty or poorly maintained gas appliances, such as boilers, can have disastrous and deadly consequences.
Details provided by the Gas Safe authority state that 5.5 million Brits fail to get an annual gas safety check, which could be putting their health and finances at risk. There were 67,000 gas emergency call outs last year (2015) in the UK, and 1 in 6 gas appliances were found to be unsafe out of the 142,000 homes inspected in the past 5 years.
Furthermore details provided by the NHS state that over 40 deaths, 300 injuries and over 200 admitted to hospital last year due to suspect carbon monoxide poisoning.

Our service reflects our dedication to gas safety, we provide a full and comprehensive service to ensure the gas safety a property and those living within it.
