Electric & Dual Fuel
Dual fuel cookers combine the even and fast cooking ability of the electric oven with the instant heat of a gas hob into one appliance. These dual fuel ovens feature fans to make sure heat is evenly dispersed. The benefit with P & S Gas Safe Engineers is that all of our Gas Safe Engineers are qualified in both trades, so your dual fuel appliance installation can be completed in one visit. This will save you both time and money. Our engineers are fully qualified (in both electric and gas) to fit dual fuel appliances. We also provide fully trained electricians (City & Guilds 17th edition 2382) to cover all your dual fuel and electric appliances. With many modern cooking appliances have both gas and electric elements to them. In most cases modern cooking appliances have a gas top and electric fan assisted oven. There are many considerations when using dual fuel appliances so please refer to FAQS for further information.
When instlling a gas cooker in your house, it is most important that the job is carried out by a qualified Gas Safe registered Engineer. Any cooker fitted by someone that is not a Gas Safe registered Engineer is considered illegal work. If you are having for example a kitchen refitted it could mean that a gas cooker installer has to fit new gas pipes. Fitting a new gas cooker should only be completed by a fully qualified Gas Safe Engineer. Messing around with gas connections could have fatal consequences. During a gas cooker installation, our P & S Gas Safe registered Gas Engineer will disconnect your old appliance and fit a new gas hose and bayonet; this is because the existing gas pipe may have become loose throught out its life span. Once the gas hose and bayonet is fitted, our Gas Safe Engineer will test the appliance for any gas leaks and ensure it is safe for operation. . Our P & S Gas Engineer will then provide you with a full guarantee and receipt. We fit gas cookers, hobs, ranges and built in double or single oven. All to a high standard and fully guaranteed

Landlord Gas Safety Certificate
As a landlord, you are required by law to hold a Gas Safe Certificate for any home supplied with gas. Landlords must arrange for an annual gas safety check to be carried out for all appliances, flues and pipe works and are legally responsible for the safety of their tenants.". This must be carried out every year by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer according to the the Gas Safety Regulations 1998.
The yearly gas safety inspection ensures that all gas appliances and flues in the property are safely installed according to current standards. Without an up-to-date Gas Safety Certificate, not only is your property insurance void but you could also be liable for potential civil claims.
After our P & S Gas Engineer has fitted your appliance your gas installer will test the appliance to make sure it is safe to use. Our Gas Safe Engineer will then issue you with a Gas Safety Certificate.
The Gas Safety Certificate normally comes in three parts:
1. One copy of the Gas Safety Certificate is kept by the engineer for his records.
2. Another copy of the Gas Safety Certificate is given to the Landlord.
3. The final copy of the Gas Safety Certificate is provided by the Londlord to the tenant.
