Gas safety

Annual Gas Safety check

Every year people die from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning caused by gas appliances and flues which have not been properly installed or maintained. 

Free check for tenants

The annual gas safety check is free for tenants of Crawley Homes so we can meet our legal obligations under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.

Make sure you keep your appointments or call 01293 438111 if you need to reschedule.

If we cannot get access to your home for this essential safety check we will consider legal action to gain access.

The check takes about an hour and includes the visual inspection of central heating systems, covering:

  • Boilers
  • Radiators
  • Cold water storage tanks and cylinders 
  • Flues (concealed flues will have inspection hatches fitted)

The inspection of: 

  • All gas appliances

The testing of:

  • All internal gas pipes 
  • The gas meter

The gas safety check must include your own gas appliances, however we will not service or repair them. If they are unsafe they may be disconnected. This is purely to protect you. It is your responsibility to get your gas appliances regularly serviced by a Gas Safe registered tradesperson.

Take control of your gas central heating

Using your central heating and hot water controls can be confusing. Read our information sheet to help you understand your controls.
