Gas Safe

Servicing

If you notice any of the following warning signs, you'll want to get your appliance serviced right 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

Gas safety certificates for landlords

Gas safety certificates are a legal requirement for landlords and need to be carried out every 12months. This certificate will detail exactly what checks the engineer has carried out and if the appliances checked meet the appropriate safety standards.

What is CO poisoning?

Unsafe gas appliances can produce a highly poisonous gas called carbon monoxide (CO). It can cause death as well as serious long term health problems such as brain damage.

CO is produced by the incomplete burning of natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). This happens when a gas appliance has been incorrectly fitted, badly repaired or poorly maintained. It can also occur if flues, chimneys or vents are blocked.

Remember the six main symptoms to look out for:

  • headaches
  • dizziness
  • nausea
  • breathlessness
  • collapse
  • loss of consciousness
