Gas Appliances

Our team of qualified Gas Safe registered gas engineers will check all your gas appliances, repair or install new ones.  This includes cookers, gas fires or heaters.

By law only a competent person can carry out work on gas appliances or fittings. Do-it-yourself work on gas appliances or fittings could be dangerous and is likely to be illegal!

  • You and you family are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if:
  • your appliance was poorly installed;
  • your appliance is not working properly;
  • your appliance has not been checked for safety or maintained regularly;
  • there is not enough fresh air in the room;
  • your chimney or flue gets blocked up;
  • you allow non-Gas Safe-registered engineers to install or maintain your

There is a particular risk if you sleep in a room where an appliance, which is not of the room-sealed type (eg a conventional gas fire) is left burning at night. (Flue outlets for room-sealed appliances are commonly located on an external wall at a low level protected by a cage rather than at or above roof level.)

Never use a gas appliance if you think it is not working properly. Signs to look out for include yellow or orange flames (except for fuel-effect fires which display this colour flame), soot or stains around the appliance and pilot lights which frequently blow out.

Never cover an appliance or block the convection air vents.

Never block or obstruct any fixed ventilation grilles or air bricks.

Never block or cover outside flues.

Caution: Whenever draught exclusion, ceiling or extraction fans, double glazing or conservatory extensions are fitted to a room containing a gas appliance, the appliance should subsequently be checked for safety.

By law you must not use any gas appliance or fittings you know or suspect to be unsafe. Through Gas Safe, the Government has asked all registered installers to disconnect any gas appliance or fittings which are so dangerous as to be a threat to life if they are used.

The government advices all gas consumers to have appliances checked for safety at least every 12 months by a Gas Safe-registered installer.
