Safety check on gas appliances ensures:

  • appliances are properly fixed and set to avoid incorrect burning of gas
  • appliances are installed to their suitable location
  • appliances are securely installed and correctly connected to the gas pipework

  • appliances are fitted on the right location where there is permanent and proper air supply is available suitable for appliances
  • safety devices of each appliance are working properly

Using Unsafe Gas Appliances may cause:

Gas Leakage – Fires or explosions can occur in a property if there is a gas leakage. If you smell gas leak in your property then call your emergency service provider.

Fires or Explosions – Faulty appliances or pipe work may leak gas which can be ignited and can cause fires or explosions. Safe appliances burn gas in a controlled and proper way.

Carbon Monoxide Leakage – Using unsafe gas appliances may produce Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas. Any of your home gas appliances may produce Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas, which is very dangerous, poisonous and silent killer because it does not have any smell or taste and in few minutes it can take residents life if gas safety check is not done. Carbon Monoxide gas is produced if gas appliances are not properly installed, repaired or maintained or the gas vents, flues or chimneys are blocked.

CO can also make its way to the property via shared vents and chimneys, please make sure to share the duty with other residents to get these inspected on annual basis.
