It's that time of year again for Kelvin and Matt to start the annual gas safety checks on each of our caravans.
If you are confused about how often you need a Gas safety check for your caravan, I'm sure you are not the only one. If you have not managed to get much use from your caravan this year, it might seem a little unnecessary to get a new certificate every year....
However, you'd be wrong....
Safety Regulations - According to Gas Safety Regulations if your static caravan is on a rented park, you must acquire a new gas certificate every year, even if it's just for family and friends.
Beer Head Caravan Park treats annual safety checks seriously, as all our caravans are run on LPG gas supplied in bottles. If not checked regularly, your caravan's heating could become unsafe to use.
LPG liquid gas used in caravans is very different from mains gas. Mains gas is lighter than air and if there's a leak you can open windows and clear excess gas.
LPG is heavier than air and drops under the caravan or to floor level, so ensuring there is enough ventilation underneath the caravan is important.
Remember to keep your gas certificate in a safe place.
