Top gas safety tips
Get your gas boiler checked every year by a gas safety registered engineer.
Don’t tamper with your gas appliance. If your appliance is broken, make sure you get it fixed by a gas safety engineer rather than try to fix it yourself.
Only use your gas appliance for the purpose it is intended. For example, never use a gas cooker to heat a room, or cook food over your gas fire.
Make sure you clean your appliances regularly (excluding the boiler) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This is to prevent the build-up of dirt and blocked vents.
Check your appliances once a month for indicators that they could be unsafe, such as loose pipes.
Be aware of the warning signs of an unsafe gas appliance.
Have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted, and check it once a month to make sure it is working.
