Taking measures to make sure that you stay Gas Safe in your home is more important now than ever. With the current lockdown measures in place across the country (and hopefully less severe restrictions later), you will be spending more time at home, and colder weather means you will be using your central heating and gas fires more than usual.
Many of us use gas to heat our homes – and while it’s generally a safe option – but unsafe appliances can put you at risk of explosions, leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. To avoid anything disastrous like these happening, and to stay gas safe in your home, it’s essential to ensure that all your gas appliances are checked every year by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
How do you know when your gas boiler or gas fire is serviced that the gas boiler engineer you choose has the expertise and experience required?
Servicing your boiler and gas fire should only ever be undertaken by a professional that holds the correct qualification. This is:-
GAS SAFE – Gas Safe is the National watchdog for gas safety within the UK. It is the official list of engineers legally qualified to work on gas appliances. It is illegal to carry out gas work for customers without being registered. Illegal gas work is not only potentially dangerous, it can also prove costly when it needs to be repaired.
