Gas Safety Week 2016


It's gas safety week!

Gas Safety Week - coordinated by Gas Safe Register - is now in its 6th year and is about raising awareness of gas safety across the country.

If you have a gas supply to your home we will carry out an annual service and safety check. This check is very important for several reasons, but the main one is to ensure your safety and that of your family.  Annual safety checks also help us to ensure that your boiler is running as it should. This helps to keep it running efficiently and to make sure you're not wasting money.

We can also identify any faults or worn out parts and replace them before they fail, helping to ensure that you always have heating and hot water so it is really important that you let us in to do this work.

For every safety check completed a certificate, often know as a CP12, is created.  We get a copy of this direct from our gas engineer and if you live in a property with your own boiler (not a shared one) you should also be left a copy of the certificate.

Our maintenance team will be able to help answer general queries you have about gas supply and safety in your property.  In an emergency, if you smell gas, you should contact the National Grid on 0800 111 999.

Direct Debit campaign success

For the second year running we have taken part in the national housing rents campaign run by Bacs, the not-for-profit organisation behind Direct Debit in the UK.

The housing rents initiative encourages people to switch to the ease and convenience of Direct Debit, with a fantastic prize of £1,000 in Love2shop vouchers up-for-grabs for those that do.

Our campaign started in April and we were hoping to have 25% of residents paying by Direct Debit at the end of the campaign in August.  We are really pleased to report that we beat this and now have 27% of residents paying this way.  This is great for our business as well as our residents.

All of Elim’s residents paying their rent by Direct Debit will be entered into the prize draw.  Elim resident Dennis was one of five lucky winners in last years draw – we’ll let you know if we have another winner this year!

Although the campaign is over this year, you can still set up a Direct Debit to pay your rent just call us on 01454 411172 or download and return a Direct Debit instruction form [pdf] 504KB
