Gas Safety Checks

What is included in a gas safety inspection?

Gas Appliance Checks

We’ll check all gas-powered appliances like hobs/cookers, ovens, boilers and fireplaces. Appliances are fully inspected to ensure they are working correctly – a visual inspection is not sufficient to ensure the appliances are running properly and are safe for homeowners and tenants to use. The Inspection includes checking that safety devices are functioning, burners are burning efficiently, and there are no signs of wear or damage that could cause leaks. A slow gas leak can be difficult to detect and may cause the resident of the property serious physical harm this could be in the form of headaches, nausea, or eventual loss of consciousness. When it come to Gas you can’t take any chances by not ensuring that all the appliances are working properly for your own safety or that of your tenants.

Gas Ventilation Assessment

Proper ventilation is crucial for gas appliances to operate safely. Our Engineers will check for adequate airflow to ensure that combustion gases are correctly vented to the outside. All our engineers are equipped with the correct tools and are fully qualified to ensure that any danger to health is detected straight away and immediate action taken to rectify the fault to ensure full compliance and safety for the residents and their families.

Gas Pipe Inspection

All visible pipework will be inspected for signs of corrosion, damage, or leaks. Any connections or junctions are carefully examined to ensure there are no weak points where gas could escape.

Flue and Chimney Examination

If applicable the flue or chimney that vents combustion gases outside is checked for blockages, damage or other issues that could interfere with safe operation.

Gas Pressure Testing

Gas pressure will be checked to ensure it’s at the proper level for your appliances, preventing over or under-supply, which could lead to inefficiency or danger.

Carbon Monoxide Checks

Since carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless and odourless gas that can be lethal, our inspectors will check for any signs of CO leakage.

Landlord CP12 Certificates

After the inspection, a Gas Safety Certificate (also known as a CP12 certificate in the UK) is often provided. This document is proof that the appliances and systems were inspected and found to be in safe working order. This document is essential to Landlords and Homeowners to know that their property is safe and has been checked by a professional thus reducing the risk of any harm to its residents.


In the UK landlords are legally required to have gas safety inspections conducted annually and provide tenants with a copy of the Gas Safety Certificate (CP12). A new tenant deciding which property to opt for checking that the landlord has their safety in mind could be the deciding factor for signing on the dotted line.

Specific obligations are also in place to obtain a safety licence for HMOs or as part of the process of running short-lets and airbnbs.


Commercial properties using gas appliances must also adhere to specific safety regulations, including regular inspections. An employer has a duty of care to ensure their staff are safe in the workplace, regular gas checks are a must for any employer no matter how large or small their business is.


Regular inspections ensure that the gas systems in a home are safe to use. Gas Inspections are one of the most important tests to be carried out in your home, the results of an unsafe Gas Appliance or leak can be catastrophic to a family with varying symptoms from headaches, difficulty in breathing to loss of life. This is a safety check that should not be missed, and this is why at IES we always send you a reminder to get rebooked each year.

Finding a supplier for your CP12 Gas Safety Inspections & Checks in Edinburgh

Gas safety inspections must be performed by registered, certified engineers or technicians who are trained and qualified to carry out the gas inspection. In the UK, for example, they should be on the Gas Safe Register, which is the official list of businesses and engineers legally allowed to work on gas appliances. This register can be accessed to check the company you are trusting to carry out your checks are fully trained. This gives you the peace of mind knowing that the gas engineers follow the guidelines set out by the regulators.
