Share This Post

Gas safety certificates are used for a variety of reasons, including legal and mandatory circumstances. Whether UK legislation requires it, we advise getting a certificate for any appliance in your home that risks gas leaks. As the silent killer, issues with these kinds of household devices can cause harm to your family or property’s residents, so it’s important to take this safety risk seriously. With this in mind, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide on how to get a gas safety certificate.

Step One: Research Local Heating Engineers

Almost all certified plumbers and heating engineers will issue gas safety certificates. However, it’s important to find the right one for you. Aspects such as locality, reputation, experience, and customer service are prioritised differently depending on your needs.

We recommend looking online for customer reviews and assessing a potential contractor’s specialities and location to obtain a high-quality, prompt gas safety certificate.

Step Two: Verify Engineer’s Certifications

Once you’ve hand-picked a heating engineer for your property, it’s crucial to verify their credentials. This can be done by searching your contractor’s business name in the Gas Safe Register. This will ensure that your plumber’s skills are up to scratch, and the official organisation vouches for their service. As a result, you’ll have peace of mind that all certification issued by them comes from an experienced and knowledgeable individual.

Step Three: Book A Slot

With the ideal engineer hand-picked, and their credentials verified, it’s time to book a slot for your gas safety certificate. Be sure to choose a time when you’re free for a few hours. This allows for a full inspection and any repairs that may be required. If you’re a landlord, this will need to be communicated to your tenants ahead of time. These certificates are a legal requirement, so emphasising this to your residents will likely result in complete cooperation for the sake of their safety and your liability.

Step Four: Create Copies Of Your Gas Safety Certificate

This step is generally only necessary for those renting a property with gas features such as an oven or boiler. However, depending on the length of the lease and the regularity of appliance replacement, you may need multiple copies of your gas safety certificate, to supply to various individuals over the course of the year. Additionally, if you run out of copies, or lose your original certificate, you can contact the contractor who carried out this service for a replacement.
