It would be unprofessional for me to test the gas installation and boiler as I am not certified as per regulatory requirements – however you can be assured that I will advise you minimally as follows:
1. The heating and hot water system should be checked before purchase (and thereafter regularly) by a Corgi, Heat safe or IEE registered engineer who should advise you as follows:
2. The boiler is correctly fitted, flued and the correct distances from surrounding openings.
3. The correct combustion of the North Sea Gas methane (CH4) by the adequate supply of oxygen (O) to ensure safe Carbon di Oxide (CO2) not deadly Carbon mon Oxide (CO):
a. Correct – CH4 + 202 = 2H2O + CO2
Incorrect and deadly = CH4 + Insufficient O = 2H20 + CO
