"Suspended prison sentence for landlord who failed to carry out gas safety checks"

Source: HVP, February 2017

Gas safety checks are a legal requirement for all Landlords and this product offers itself perfectly to achieving this, by adding a service date and then the programmer at that date either drops into a partial or complete shutdown to ensure the checks are to take place and that gas service engineers gain access to the home.

The Choice range of Service Interval Programmers offer 1,2 or 3 channel control with service interval functionality to ensure compliance with "Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regs 1998".

It is mandatory that all landlords carry out an annual gas safety check on gas appliances in their rented properties and these devices are intended to act as a supplementary aid to enable compliance.

How it works

When installed a gas service is carried out and day count is set (0-400days) by using a unique key code.

Visual warnings on the display and the display back light are shown with 28 days and 7 days remaining and when overdue.

Once the period is overdue the system will drop into either a Partial Shutdown or Full Shutdown (set at time of counter)

Partial Shutdown = Operates for a variable 15 minutes every programmed hour to ensure some heat is still available (Until unit is reset by engineer with the unique key)

Full Shutdown = Prevents boiler operation until unit is reset
