Top tips

  • Don't use any gas appliances that you think may not be 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.

Getting appliances serviced

Make sure you get a Gas Safe Register™ 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. You can be reassured that all of our gas engineers are Gas Safe Register™ engineers.
