Commissioning & Decommissioning

To keep your Hertfordshire neighbours happy and safe, you should always contact a Gas Safe Engineer for advice and help when you plan to install a new gas system or permanently shut one off.

Direct & Indirect Gas Purging
The process of gas pipework testing and purging is complex and requires huge amounts of precision, which is why it needs to be carried out be expertly trained staff with a lot of experience.
This guarantees that the tests aren’t rushed and are carried out in a safe, careful and professional manner.
Strength Testing in New Installations
New installations or extensions must have a strength test. We can give you the greenlight on your installation so you can go ahead with confidence and fulfil your obligation to be Gas Safe Compliant.
Gas Tightness Testing
Like a strength test, there are some instances where you must get a tightness test, or you could be putting multiple people’s lives in danger.
Tightness tests are normally included in any planned, preventative maintenance/service packages you have. Having them performed annually is a good idea.
Issuing Certificate of Compliance
We can send an engineer to check you are compliant. We can provide a few tips to get you up to scratch and send you a certificate once we are happy.
It’s not something we take lightly and it’s a serious issue, but it will mean you are a safe and responsible employer/landlord.
