Are you Gas Safety Compliant?

Under Part F of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, social housing landlords are required to arrange an annual safety check of gas appliances and pipework. Unfortunately many landlords, local authorities and housing associations find some tenants, for a variety of reasons, difficult to arrange access, despite the checks being a potentially lifesaving necessity.


Sangamo have developed a range of Choice Heating Programmers with a service interval function, which is designed as a supplementary aid to assist landlords in alerting their tenants that a service is due.

Using Controls To Help Limit Heating Costs

Using Controls To Help Limit Heating Costs

Electricity is the most expensive and carbon-intensive heating fuel available in the UK, the average annual cost of heating and hot water using electricity is £2,053. An Ofgem study found that there are over 2 million homes in the UK using electric heating systems, these tend to be homes with a lower efficiency rating, reflecting the higher running costs, and tended to be occupied by people with lower incomes. This means that often, those that can least afford it are paying for the most expensive method of keeping warm.
