Appointment details


A gas safety check (also known as gas safety inspection or a CP12) involves a Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting your gas fuelled appliances and central heating systems. The engineer will check the appliances are working properly, with the correct operating pressure. They also perform full system tests and ventilation checks to ensure regulations are met and that appliances are safe to use. The entire on-site process typically takes 45-60 minutes. Following the assessment, the Gas Safety Certificate is emailed the same day or the following business day. 


If you are a landlord, you are legally obliged to renew the Gas Safety certificate annually. Landlords must also keep a record of gas safety checks for at least two years and issue the latest certificate to existing tenants and any new tenants before they move in. If you are a homeowner, although you have not legally bound to renew the Gas Safety certificate, you are advised to do so once a year to maintain the safety of your home.



What does the inspection include?


  • Checking all gas appliances for gas tightness

  • Check burner pressure and gas rate against the manufacturers’ data plate

  • Checks on all necessary ventilation will be conducted

  • Check standing and working pressure if test points are available

  • Fuel flow will be tested to make sure combustion products are removed

  • All flame failure devices will be checked for satisfactory operation

  • Appropriate checks will be made for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets

  • Investigations for any evidence of unsafe operation will be made and reported

The entire on-site process typically takes around one hour but larger commercial premises can take longer. Following the assessment, the Gas Safety Certificate is emailed the same day or the following business day. 


If you are a commercial landlord, you are legally obliged to renew the Gas Safety certificate annually. Landlords must also keep a record of gas safety checks for at least four years and issue the latest certificate to existing tenants and any new tenants before they move in.

  • checking all gas appliances for gas tightness

Appointment details


Upon confirmation of the service, an accredited Energy Assessor visits the property to collect the required data for assessing energy features based on the construction, type of dwelling, and relevant fittings (i.e, heating systems, insulation, windows, fixed outlets, lighting, etc). Please allow easy and full access for the assessor to inspect all heating and lighting fixtures/fittings including the boilers, hot water cylinders and the electric meter. The entire onsite process generally takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. Following the assessment, an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is generated using government-approved software, which typically takes 1-3 business days, and will be emailed to you once ready. Once the EPC is lodged it will appear on the national Domestic EPC register.


The EPC should not be read as a comment on the overall condition of the property, nor will it cover any items that would be included in a building survey.


An EPC is a legal requirement for the property to be marketed for sale or let. The certificate is valid for 10 years although it is recommended to renew the certificate every time works are carried out to the property that could improve its energy performance ie. replacement boiler/windows, loft or wall insulation. 


Our EPC prices are calculated on the number of bedrooms, location and availability and carried out by professional, verified assessors who are certified with the official EPC Register.



What does an EPC contain?


  • A record of how energy efficient a building is and its environmental impact
  • Information on the property’s typical energy costs
  • Suggested recommendations on reducing energy use and saving money
  • An energy efficiency rating of the property from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)

Upon confirmation of the service, an accredited Energy Assessor visits the property to collect the required data for assessing energy features based on the construction, data, and relevant fittings (i.e, heating systems, insulation, windows, fixed outlets, lighting, etc). Please allow easy and full access for the assessor to inspect all heating and lighting fixtures/fittings including the boilers, hot water cylinders and the electric meter. Given the size and complexity of some commercial buildings, this inspection can take a number of hours or even days. Following the assessment, a Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (which includes two documents: an EPC certificate and a separate Recommendations Report) is generated using government-approved software, which typically takes 1-3 business days, and will be emailed to you once ready. Once the EPC is lodged it will appear on the national Commercial EPC register.


A Non-Domestic EPC is a legal requirement for all commercial buildings exceeding 50 sq meters. The law states that a Non-Domestic EPC is required when you market the premises for let or sale, a building under construction is finished or where there are changes to the number of parts used for separate occupation and these changes involve providing or extending fixed heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation systems. 


The EPC must also be displayed in your commercial building if the total useful floor area is over 500 sq meters, the building is frequently visited by the public or an EPC has already been produced for the building’s sale, rental or construction

The certificate is valid for 10 years although a new certificate may be required if the building is subject to renovations, alterations, extensions etc. 


Commercial buildings are divided into three categories for EPC purposes, depending on size, heating and cooling systems, etc. For further information please get in touch with us.

Mike was amazing. Best communication I’ve had. I was a bit nervous using a system where I paid up front and appt was organised electronically for me, but Mike phone to confirm the appt within 20 minutes. Called to confirm he would be with me as planned on the morning of the appt and then the follow up was super speedy, I was done within 36 hours of the appt. He was super friendly, polite and professional, efficient and knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I had a few living in an old house! I felt in safe hands. I actually can’t recommend Mike enough. Above and beyond.

Splendidly easy service to arrange on web; excellent communication throughout the process. Accurate preparation information given. Examiner (Mike Portch) in contact with me at all stages and exactly on time for appointment. Examination conducted with professional and thorough-going approach; full explanation given of each stage of assessment with tips for improvement. Excellent follow-up and provision of certificate. In regard of cost: absolutely spot-on for the quality of service and the substantial time given for services of a knowledgeable and committed consultant. My thanks to the Company and to Mike himself for making what is initially a rather daunting episode so very easy to finalise.

Mike was brilliant! Professional, tidy, prompt and very informative. Spotted safety issues with how our boiler was installed when it was a new build. Unfortunately he was unable to complete the requested work because of these issues. Knowing we urgently required the Gas safety certificate, he spent 2 hours to assist us with arranging another very skilled Professional to fix the issue the start of the following week and returned to perform the original work that was requested by rearranging his schedule. I would definitely recommend Mike to friends and family and would be using his services annually.

After 20 years plus using British Gas and watching the engineer leave inside of 15 minutes I thought I try something else. Very happy with the boiler service I had last week. Mike explained what he was going to Do and made me feel really happy. Left me with various forms showing what was done and was here just over an hour . Really happy would recommend to anyone . Very tidy friendly and polite.
