LP GAS INSTALLATIONS – LEGISLATION & SAFETY
LP Gas installations without a valid up to date CoC may lead to dire consequences for home owners.
With the high cost of electricity gas appliances in the home are becoming more popular. Some homeowners are unaware that permanent gas installations such as gas ovens, hobs, heaters and fireplaces requires an up to date CoC.
Should there be a fire in a home with a gas installation with no up to date compliance certificate, your insurance company could possibly reject the claim. A Gas CoC is valid for five years but some insurance companies may require the CoC to be renewed more frequently.
