Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Yes, all of our heating engineers are fully qualified and on the Gas Safe register.

The duration of a gas safety certificate appointment can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the gas appliances in the property and the number of appliances that need to be inspected. On average, a gas safety check for a single appliance may take around 30 to 45 minutes. However, if there are multiple gas appliances to inspect, the appointment may take longer.

It's important to allow sufficient time for a thorough examination to ensure that all gas appliances, flues, and pipework are safe and comply with regulations. The gas engineer will assess for any potential gas leaks, check the ventilation, and ensure that the appliances are functioning properly.

The frequency with which you should service your boiler can depend on various factors, including the type of boiler, its age, and the manufacturer's recommendations. However, a common recommendation is to have a boiler serviced annually. 

A pre-purchase plumbing check before buying a property is essential to identify potential issues, ensuring the plumbing system complies with regulations, and evaluating water quality. This inspection can save costs by addressing problems before they escalate and provide peace of mind about the property's plumbing condition. Additionally, it may be required by insurance providers and offers an opportunity for negotiation with the seller based on the inspection findings. 

A Legionella Risk Assessment is crucial for preventing the spread of Legionnaires' disease, a potentially severe and sometimes fatal form of pneumonia. This assessment helps identify potential sources of Legionella bacteria within water systems, such as cooling towers and plumbing, and assesses the risk of exposure. Conducting regular Legionella Risk Assessments is a legal requirement in many places to ensure the safety of occupants in buildings and to mitigate the risk of Legionella contamination, contributing to public health and compliance with regulations.

Obtaining an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is mandatory for landlords who rent out their properties. This report should be conducted every five years or after a change of occupancy to confirm compliance with the latest version of BS7671 standards. If you encounter issues with your electrical system, including tripping problems, obtaining an EICR is advisable, as it provides valuable insights into the condition of the wiring within your property.

A pre-purchase drainage check involves a comprehensive assessment of a property's drainage system to identify issues such as blockages, leaks, and structural damage. This inspection covers drainage structures, sewer lines, flow testing, surface water management, and checks for root intrusion. Conducting a pre-purchase drainage check is crucial for prospective buyers to uncover potential problems early and prevent water-related issues. Hiring a qualified drainage professional for this assessment ensures a thorough examination and provides valuable insights into the condition of the property's drainage system.

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that assesses the energy efficiency of a property. It includes information about energy usage, carbon emissions, and recommendations for improvement. EPCs are typically required when a property is built, sold, or rented, providing potential buyers or tenants with information about the property's energy efficiency.
