Gas Safety Tips

Gas appliances are used on a daily basis in homes up and down the country, and they can often be taken for granted. However, a faulty gas appliance or a poor knowledge of gas safety can be very dangerous, which is why this article will look at some key points to keep in mind when it comes to being safe with gas.

Ensure appliances are serviced regularly

This is perhaps one of the most important things to remember – by getting an accredited and registered professional to inspect your gas fire or boiler regularly, you will be able to keep track of its performance and be well aware of any potential faults or issues. This will allow you to have your appliance repaired or replaced before any serious problems arise.

Install a Carbon Monoxide alarm

Carbon monoxide is lethal and is near-impossible to detect. However, by installing a carbon monoxide alarm, you and those in your home or building will be warned of any leaks that may arise from faulty or wrongly-installed gas appliances. Installing a carbon monoxide alarm next to your appliances to ensure your alarm sounds as quickly as possible if a leak occurs.

Use registered professionals

By ensuring that your appliances are installed, repaired and inspected by an accredited engineer, you can greatly reduce the risk of carbon monoxide leaks. Make sure any engineer that is working with your appliances in Gas Safe registered – although you may save a small amount of money by using an un-registered engineer, using an accredited professional can keep any risk of carbon monoxide leaks down to a minimum.

Be aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning

In the unfortunate event that you do experience a carbon monoxide leak, it is important that you are aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, as this will help you detect and react appropriately. If you do fear that you or someone in your building has carbon monoxide poisoning, call the emergency services, evacuate your building and contact your gas provider to arrange a course of action.

Excellent

  • C Lewis

    We are very impressed with the service we have received from The Fireplace Studio. Ashley in the showroom was very patient and helpful, and his advice...was invaluable. He explained that the fire we had picked out was too big and hot for our room, and sold us one that was about a third of the price. He could so easily have taken a great deal of money off us, but wouldn't. It was fitted today, and it looks beautiful. The fitters were punctual, polite, and made as little mess as possible.

    This was the sixth fireplace showroom visited, and we found it to be an excellent company in every aspect - professional, highly competent, readily pr...oviding comprehensive quotations whilst in their showroom for various options, and sticking to the price and installation date when the order was placed. The calibre, skill and craftsmanship of the installation team were all exemplary.

    I had a DRU Gas Fire installed; the staff were very professional, from showroom to final installation. Thank you Michelle, Andy, Keegan, Dean and Adam.... They instilled confidence that they knew the product and did a professional installation. I am most happy with the finished job, I would use the company again and recommend them without hesitation. I am also pleased I went to a local family owned business I was also pleased I went to a local family owned business.

    We have no hesitation in awarding top marks to the Fireplace Studio. From the start of the process, from visiting the outstanding showroom at Bramcote..., to the completion, with the installation of our fireplace, the service was outstanding. We received impartial but constructive advice, without any pressurised selling, on the type of fireplace most suitable based on our requirements. The installation went so smoothly and the finish is superb. We are delighted and consider that the cost has been fully justified. Thank you Andy, Dean, Keegan and Adam for all your assistance
