Gas Safety Tips

 

  • Get any gas appliances installed and regularly serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
  • Don’t use any gas appliances that you think aren’t working properly.
  • Make sure that ventilation bricks, grilles or outside flues aren’t covered or blocked.
  • Fit a carbon monoxide detector to use as a guide only. Don’t rely on it completely.

 

Testing and Alarms

 

  • Make sure you get a Gas Safe registered engineer to service your gas appliances at least once a year. By law, gas engineers must be registered to be able to work on gas installations.
  • Gas detector alarms can alert you to a gas leak in your home. Make sure you have the alarm installed by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
  • You should also have a Carbon Monoxide (CO) detector installed in your home. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and can be fatal.
  • You can also nominate your new gas works within the first 6 months to be tested by gas safe.
  • Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning:
    • headaches
    • dizziness
    • nausea
    • breathlessness
    • collapse or loss of consciousness  
    • symptoms which disappear or get better when you leave home and come back when you return
    • other people (and animals) experiencing the same symptoms at the same time

 

We hope these tips will help you be gas safe and aware in your home.
