Domestic Gas Audits

Domestic Gas Audits

EC Solutions NE Ltd are one of the industry’s most experienced Independent Gas Audit Providers with over 100 years combined experience. We currently cover an area from Yorkshire to the Scottish Borders and spanning both East & West coasts. This ensures our clients get a true reflection on a cross section of their service providers. We compile a comprehensive report on gas services, repairs and installations.

We have developed a bespoke audit procedure which ensures all our clients are notified immediately of any ‘At Risk’ or ‘Immediately Dangerous’ situations so they can be actioned instantly. Our consultants complete gas audits on electronic devices, therefore data can be instantly uploaded to our secure cloud portal on site. From here the data is downloaded onto our software where detailed reports are generated.

Our tailored reports give clients a wide range of results to identify areas of improvement. These reports can be used to measure performance and highlight areas for additional training. Our audits act as both a comprehensive safety tool and a means to implement VFM (Value for Money) from your external partners. Above all, it demonstrates a pro-active approach to safety of tenants and properties. Many issues are identified and actioned before things escalate to a dangerous level.

We offer all our clients free offsite technical advice on any Gas issue, including regular updates in Gas Regulations so operations can be in place well ahead of changes.

Work In Progress

Work in Progress

We conduct work-in-progress assessments for many of our clients to offer a more in depth audit into gas engineers workmanship. One of our experienced auditors will shadow an engineer onsite and compile a detailed assessment. The report will highlight positive performance along with areas of improvement; we will often advise on how engineer procedures can be enhanced to maximize efficiency and safety.

Landlord gas safety certificates and “Benchmark” commissioning certificates must comply to current regulations. We can carry out desk-top audits to check that documents have been correctly completed. This provides assurance that documentation meets legal requirements; this can be crucial in an incident investigation or company external audit situation. Assessing these documents is also a part of our mainstream auditing process, both work in progress and post work audits.

Incident Investigation

Incident Investigation

CO incidents are thankfully few and far between, especially if you have our QA Gas Audit programme in place. However, on the rare occasion one may arise, our vastly experienced team at EC Solutions can carry out a full CO investigation and report. Carbon Monoxide is produced when incomplete combustion occurs and this can be triggered by numerous circumstances. In our experience, when one case is identified, we find many other properties in that Social Housing group could be at similar risk, so preventive measures can be out in place. Our specialist equipment can identify the cause of the problem and our team will find a solution.

Water Analysis

Water Analysis

We conduct independent water analysis to ensure that installations are free from scale and corrosion in all types of indirect central heating systems, including those containing aluminum. The results can promote extended life of the system, and ensure maximum efficiency and minimum fuel usage.
