Gas dangers in winter and annual checks

In the UK, our winters are getting colder and longer requiring the use of our gas heaters, cookers, and fires. Although this gives us an escape from the cold outside, all gas appliances should be checked annually to make sure they are functioning correctly and working safely. Without these crucial checks you could be exposing you and your family to carbon monoxide poisoning and a variety of other dangers.

Our customers need to be aware that there are indicators to show when your appliance isn’t working properly and requires servicing:

  • The flame of your appliance is yellow and ‘lazy’ rather than burning with a ‘crisp’ blue flame.
  • Soot marks or black stains form around your appliance
  • The pilot light isn’t continuously on rather flickers on and off
  • There is a high amount of condensation in the room
  • Overall the appliance isn’t functioning correctly.
