Book a Boiler Service in London with CW Services Plumbing and Heating
It’s always a good idea to have your boiler serviced before the winter sets in for real. Whether you have an electric boiler, or a gas boiler makes no difference in as much as the last thing anyone wants to happen is that their boiler lets them down; no heating, no hot running water – its more than an inconvenience – it’s downright uncomfortable.
If you have a gas boiler another factor comes into play and this one is arguably even more important because it’s a potential life saver. This factor is preventing carbon monoxide poisoning – also known as the silent killer.
A gas boiler/gas appliance annual safety check
Whether you are a home owner, business property owner or a landlord, if you have gas appliance in your property you must have them regularly serviced by a Gas Safe registered gas fitter or plumber. Only ever use a Gas Safe registered engineer/plumber. These professionals are the only ones qualified to perform a proper Gas Safe safety check. They are also the only people qualified to issue Gas Safety confirmation certification.
Landlords must have a CP12 Gas Safety Check done annually
If you are a landlord letting your property out, you must be law have a CP12 Gas Safety Check carried out every 12 months.
Landlords must also present tenants with an authenticated copy of a gas safety certificate within 28 days of the check being completed. New tenants must be presented with a copy as they move in. Failure to comply with these stipulations under the Gas Safety (Installations and Use) Regulation 1998 may be prosecuted and severely fined.

According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accident (RoSPA) website there are somewhere in the region of 50 deaths and 1,100 emergency admissions to hospital every year directly attributable to carbon monoxide poisoning.
