How often should I have my outdoor appliances serviced? Who can carry out the work?
The frequency of service depends on the type of appliance you own. For example, if you own a patio or area heater, this should be serviced by a gasfitter on a 6 - 12 monthly basis, depending on how often it is used.
By comparison, a barbecue will simply require a leak test every time the cylinder is refilled, and a good clean after every use. This should be done by the owner. For further details on leak testing, refer to the common questions safety issues section.
Any repairs to a fault of a technical nature (that is to say, related to the gas or electrical side of the unit's operation) will need to be carried out by a craftsman gas fitter.
Any cleaning of the unit is to be carried out by the owner. The owner is also responsible for leak testing all gas connections on a regular basis.
