Gas Boiler Servicing Fife and Edinburgh
Landlord Service Gas Safety Checks Fife and Edinburgh
It is extremely important to have your gas appliances checked every year, and if you are a landlord it is a legal requirement.
Apart from the risk of explosion from faulty appliances, neglected gas appliances can emit carbon monoxide, a colourless, odourless gas that is lethal.
Gas installations and appliances in rental properties need to comply with UK gas safety regulations.
For residential properties, landlords have a statutory duty to arrange annual Gas Safety Checks by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer.
The check must be done before the tenants move in and annually thereafter, and a certificate must be given to the tenant within 28 days. In addition, gas appliances must be serviced annually in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
Our team of central heating and plumbing engineers are Gas Safe registered.
We work closely with many landlords in our area and offer great discounts for multiple properties.
Gas Safe Registered Engineers Fife and Edinburgh
Whether you are a landlord or a householder, it is crucially important to make sure that anyone who carries out any work on any gas appliance in your home is properly qualified and registered with Gas Safe Register, the organisation that took over from CORGI as the gas registration body in Scotland on 1 April 2009.
Figures from Gas Safe Register show that up to 75% of gas work carried out by unregistered fitters was unsafe and potentially deadly.
Always check to make sure your gas fitters are engineers registered with Gas Safe Register.
You can see our official registration here. Always ask to see your engineer’s Gas Safe Register ID card, too.
It will show a photograph of the engineer and list the types of gas work she or he is qualified to do.
It is not a legal requirement for domestic properties to have an annual gas safety check, but, as we have said, it is very good practice.
Gas Safe Register figures show that 1 in 5 homes in Scotland have unsafe gas appliances .
It could be a condition of your home insurance that you have an annual check, and it will almost certainly invalidate any manufacturer’s guarantee for your boiler if you can’t produce a valid Gas Safety Certificate.

- Property safety checks and advice

Central Heating Powerflush | Powerflushing Fife | Powerflushing Edinburgh
Powerflushing your heating system is an effective technique to keep your radiators working efficiently.
Over the years, dirt, rust and ‘sludge’ in central heating systems can build up and cause blockages (cold spots).
This slows down the speed at which the hot water produced by your boiler can circulate around your property.
The slower the circulation speed of hot water, the higher the cost to heat your home.
Sludge in your system will alos put greater strain on the central heating pump, shortening its lifespan.
Power Flush is an extremely thorough cleaning technique which will revitalise your heating system.
The process involves water and cleaning chemicals being pumped through your heating system at a high pressure to restore circulation.
Powerflushing flushes out any build-up and dirt, rust, sludge and scale deposits that are causing or could cause a blockage in your heating system.
If you are installing a new boiler or relocating/adding a radiator, we recommend flushing your central heating system first in order to remove any signs of flux residue.
