Working with gas can be dangerous, so it’s crucial that you never try to fix, fit or move appliances like your boiler or cooker yourself. Poorly fitted or serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning; it just isn’t worth the risk.
By law, anyone carrying out work on gas appliances and fittings as part of their business must be competent and registered with the Gas Safe register. That’s why we’d advise that you only ever use a Gas Safe registered engineer to carry out gas work in your home. You can confirm Brazendale Heating Maintenance with the registration number 187943.
To help you and your family stay safe while you’re making improvements to your home, here are our top tips:
- Don’t DIY with gas appliances, use a Gas Safe registered engineer
- Don’t block or cover air vents and flues; ‘they are essential for safely working gas appliances’
- Never try to remove or repair a gas appliance yourself
- If you’re having building work done, always ensure your contractor is qualified
