Gas Inspection and Testing
When do you need this service?
If you smell gas then the gas system MUST be checked. If you had to move an appliance which uses gas, for example a fridge, then the system must be checked for gas tightness to ensure there are no gas leaks present.
Caravans and motorhomes use LPG gas (Butane or Propane) for heating, water heating, space heating, and even for gas BBQs. The caravan and motorhome flex and move when subjected to forces from towing or driving. This flexing will stress gas pipes and fittings. For this reason it is strongly advised by leading experts that a full inspection is carried out annually.
Gas leaks are a danger and must be taken seriously. LPG gas is much more volatile than natural gas which we use in our homes.
Appliances which don’t burn the LPG gas fully will generate Carbon Monoxide which is a lethal gas and could kill in minutes.
Don’t take any chances, get your caravan or motorhome gas inspected for peace of mind.
