Leak detection & rectification! Stay Safe!!
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 that frequently blow out.
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.
All gas consumers are advised to have appliances checked for safety at least every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered installer.
Carbon monoxide alarms are a useful back-up precaution but must not be regarded as a substitute for proper installation and maintenance of gas equipment by a Gas Safe registered installer. If you decide to buy a carbon monoxide alarm, ensure it meets current safety standards (BS 7860 or BS EN 50291) and carries the Kitemark. If in doubt ask a member of our staff for advice.
Always follow the manufacturer’s siting instructions.
