Whether you are a landlord who wants to make sure they are providing a safe home for tenants or a homeowner who is keen to ensure their home is running efficiently, you will need a gas service. There are a lot of companies out there offering gas services, but it’s important to choose a team that knows what they’re doing. At Grand Union Plumbing & Heating, we have a lot of experience in gas servicing and therefore we know what we are doing. We provide an efficient, effective and professional service to everyone. However, how much do you know about what a gas service involves? Before making an appointment, it’s a good idea to understand what a gas service checks.

Here’s What’s Involved in a Gas Service

When we carry out a gas service, we check every aspect of your gas system. This includes all pipework, appliances and flues. We thoroughly inspect everything to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently. If anything is highlighted as being faulty or underperforming, we can then arrange for repairs to be made. The following things are included in a gas service:

  • Checking the meter, pipework and gas pressure

  • Gas tightness test

  • Appliance safety devices

  • Appliance correct and safe operation

We offer reinspections free of charge if the remedial work is carried out by us, or for £20 + VAT if remedial work is carried out by another Gas Safe engineer. As long as your gas appliances are working safely, failure is unlikely. Failing a gas service generally occurs when the gas installation or appliance are at risk of becoming unsafe or if they are currently dangerous.

Gas Service in Milton Keynes

There’s no benefit to delaying a gas service, as you could be using an installation that’s unsafe. The sooner you book a gas service, the sooner you can relax. There’s also the benefit of a gas service highlighting if appliances aren’t working correctly, which could be increasing your gas bill unnecessarily. During a gas service, faults and problems are highlighted. They can then be fixed, before they do any lasting damage. Not only does this mean that the entire system will be working better, but it also helps to boost longevity.

If you are in Milton Keynes and you need a gas service, we can help. We provide gas servicing to those in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas. Regardless of whether you are a landlord, letting agent or homeowner you can call on us for gas servicing. All you need to do is get in touch, book an appointment and let us take care of the rest.

Mitch replaced our boiler and ran new pipework, plus relocated some radiators. He did a brilliant job and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him! He was punctual, helpful and polite.

Suzanne Simmons

I had a new bathroom fitted by Mitch. He was absolutely excellent. He was polite, tidy and did an exceptional job. Reasonably priced too. 100% recommend.


Excellent service. I contacted them for a boiler repair. They responded within hours with prices. Once they confirmed part availability, they fitted within days.  Very efficient, great service and I liked their clear pricing.

Definitely recommend & I will be booking my annual service with them in future.

Well done!

Sheena Mac

Grand Union replaced our central heating system and in doing so we requested that it be relocated from the airing cupboard into the Garage.  The work was completed professionally & on time with the relocated pipework like a work of art, very neat and orderly.  I would have no issue with recommending Grand Union, and will certainly be using them for all our gas & plumbing needs.


I have called Mitch out twice since moving into our new house a month ago. Both times he has managed to fit in an appointment fairly quickly to resolve our issues. He has been professional and friendly, offering advice on other issues that I have seen. I would definitely recommend his services.

Definitely recommend these guys. Had a job done by them and they wasted no time to get it done and made sure I was completely happy before any payments. Nowadays companies just want to rush and take your money. Big thumps up

We always use Grand Union for serving and any other unforseen problems. The service and professionalism is 1st class. Would definitely recommend!!

A great company to do business with… I used them recently for an emergency with a domestic heating system which was rectified very efficiently. A second problem (some months later) and there was no decision to make, called them and they sorted it in no time with minimum fuss, mess and very reasonably priced.
