If you are in the process of buying a new home or have just moved in, have you thought about when the appliances and pipework in your property were last serviced and checked?
The chances are you won't know this, therefore, you will need a qualified gas registered engineer to do a full gas safety check on your property, and service your gas appliances, preferably before you move in.
Gas boilers, Gas water heaters, Gas Fires, Gas Cookers and Gas Heaters are all common gas appliances found in any home. These should all be checked annually by a gas safe registered engineer to avoid things such as carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires, and explosions.
Your chimney or flue should also be checked for any blockages.
Gas safety in the home is crucial to keeping you and your family safe.
If you notice any of the following warning signs, you need to get your appliance checked straight away:
- The gas appliance is not working properly
- The appliance is burning with a lazy yellow flame rather than a crisp blue one
- Black marks/stains are evident around the gas appliance
- The pilot light keeps going out
- There is increased condensation in the room
Whether you are just moving into a new house, or have gas appliances installed in your home, you should always have these checked and serviced annually by a gas safe registered engineer.
