You may not be a gas engineer, but that doesn't mean there aren't important steps you can take around your home to reduce the risk of danger to you, your loved ones and your home. Below we share some top tips on keeping your home gas safe:
Get your gas appliances checked and serviced regularly - at the very least once a year, more if they are particularly old.
Make sure you have a working carbon monoxide alarm fitted in your home - this dangerous gas has no smell and can be highly dangerous if it leaks - if you need one fitted give us a call on 020 3744 4666.
When hiring a team to repair or fit a gas appliance, ensure they are Gas Safe registered engineers and check their ID when they visit just to be sure.
Never use gas appliances for anything other than their intended purpose.
If you think you smell a leak, seek help immediately and do not use any electricals as the spark could start a fire.
Always have gas appliances installed in a well-ventilated area.
