Gas and electrical checks
We test whg-installed gas appliances in your home every year and carry out an electrical safety check every few years to make sure everything is working correctly.
About your gas check
Your whg-installed gas appliances need to be checked every year so we can ensure they are safe for you and your family. It usually takes around 45 to 90 minutes to complete. We will let you know when your check is due.
About your electrical check
We need to check that all sockets, circuits and lighting are in working order to ensure it’s safe for you and your family. We used to do this every 10 years but are aiming to reduce this to every five years.
It usually takes around three to four hours to complete and, if we are given easy access, we will fit a socket with a USB port and provide you with an energy saving lightbulb. We will let you know in advance when your check is due.
We understand that life is busy. If the appointment time doesn’t work for you, please let us know as soon as possible by calling 0300 555 6666 and we will work to find a time that does.
