Its not only your Boiler that has to be installed and maintained by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer, it applies to all Gas Appliances within your home. Letting someone who is not qualified service or install a gas appliance can put you at series risk of Carbon monoxide poisoning; it can kill you quickly and without warning since you are unable to see, smell or taste it.

  • Blackening/scorching either side of the cooker worktop or splash-back
  • Worn seals around the oven door allowing fumes to escape into the kitchen

Gas Safe Plumbers gas fires & DFEs DFE's
Some Gas Fires have a decorative flame which is actually designed to burn Orange, contrary to the signs we usually tell you to look out for, which can confuse homeowners. All gas fires need to be checked and serviced regularly ensuring that it is indeed operating and burning correctly.

  • Look out for discolouration (soot, which is carbon) around the fire, fireplace or ceiling above
  • Ensure air bricks or purpose supplied vents are free from obstruction
  • The pilot light on all gas fires should burn solid blue

If you have any questions, or suspect that any gas appliance isn't working correctly, call us 24 hours on 01206 581 471.
