While solar water heaters are a popular choice for many, gas geysers are emerging as an elegant and energy-efficient solution for hot water in a renewable home in South Africa.
Also known as a certificate of conformity, a gas compliance certificate provides proof that the gas installation has been installed safely and according to standard, is in safe working condition and free from leaks or other potentially dangerous issues.
Regardless of the type of gas appliance or installation you have in your home, there are various non-negotiable rules and regulations which ensure that your appliance is installed safely and properly maintained.
As a gas installer I often hear the question, “Why do I need a gas certificate when I only have a small gas bottle in the cupboard with a piece of hose connected to my hob or braai”
Well the answer is a very simple yes and I will explain why.
A registered gas installer is required by law. And every home with a gas installation is required to have a gas certificate of compliance, proving that the gas installation is safe and legally conforms to South African gas regulations (SANS regulation 10087-1:2013).
Incidentally, a gas certificate of compliance (COC) is also required when you sell your house, so it make sense to have your gas installation done correctly and legally the first time.
