Permanent Dwellings (PD)

Most appliances found in this type of property are the typical domestic appliances normally found under the following categories:-

  • CENWAT1 Domestic Central Heating Boilers and Water Heaters
  • CKR1 Domestic Gas Cookers
  • DAH1 Domestic Air Heater
  • HTR1 Domestic Gas Heaters
  • MET1 Domestic Gas Meters (up to 6m3)
  • CPA1 Combustion Performance Analysis (Now included in Domestic Core Gas Safety but is still available for those engineers who have not yet completed it.)

Where an existing engineer already holds ACS qualifications in these areas, they will be automatically eligible to work on these appliances irrespective of whether they are fuelled by natural gas or LPG.
