Any property that contains a gas boiler is at risk from experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning and other leakage issues if the boiler is not properly maintained and inspected by a qualified gas engineer.
Carbon monoxide has no smell and can kill surprisingly quickly; symptoms of poisoning include headaches, feeling dizzy, nausea and confusion and has been likened to having flu, only without the fever. In order to prevent this, it is important to have all gas appliances checked regularly and have carbon monoxide detectors fitted throughout the property.

Gas Safety Checks
Homeowners are urged to have their appliances, flues and all other pipework checked once a year by a qualified engineer, however, employers and landlords are subject to sections 35 and 36 of The Gas Safety Regulations 1998, which clearly state that they are responsible for ensuring that all gas appliances, flues, pipework and installations are checked by a qualified engineer. Landlords in particular, are legally obliged to have a gas safety check every 12 months.
As qualified gas engineers, our experts at Home Heating are registered with the Gas Safe Register, the official governing body for gas engineers in the UK, which replaced CORGI in 2009. Our engineers ensure that your appliances are in good working order, safe to use and comply with current legislation and regulations regarding gas safety.
It is never safe to attempt to install or maintain gas appliances if you are not a qualified gas safety engineer. By doing so increases the likelihood of experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning, a gas leak or a full system issue.
If you suspect a gas leak, then you should open the windows and doors carefully, switch off the gas at the mains (if safe to do so), do not turn switches or lights on or off, and call us on 01582 487 111.
