Installing life-saving technology in our homes

As part of our commitment to providing safe homes for customers, we are currently installing life-saving gas safety technology in 12,000 homes across Shropshire and Staffordshire.

We have partnered with technology company, Gas Tag, to use ground-breaking tech that will help to keep families safe from the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Phoenix Gas Services Ltd has begun the project to install a ‘tag’ in all our homes. The tag is attached to the gas meter and the process of fitting the tag and collecting information about your boiler and appliances takes just 20 minutes.

Gas Tag has been described as “The most significant quantum leap in domestic gas safety compliance in 20 years” by Barry Sheerman MP – the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Carbon Monoxide. Housing Plus Group customers will be some of the first tenants in the country to benefit from this new technology.

For the first time, life-saving safety checks will be captured using an app on a smartphone – allowing the work to be monitored in real time.

Paul Durose, co-founder and chief executive for Gas Tag said: “We are excited to be working with such a forward-thinking company as Housing Plus Group that clearly puts tenant safety at the heart of what they do. Our technology is an industry first and gives Housing Plus real-time data to monitor lifesaving gas safety checks.”
