Gas Safety In Winter

Important tips to keep you safe and warm this winter

Once the cold weather sets in, lots of us use our gas boilers and gas fires to keep our families safe and warm, but this increased usage can put extra pressure on your appliances and leave them at risk of breaking down when you most need them.

That’s why we’d always advise preparing for winter by making sure your gas appliances - including boilers, warm air heaters, cookers and fires - have been regularly safety checked and maintained by a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer.

This is the best way to make sure your appliances stay working as they should. In fact, a survey of gas engineers revealed that most gas appliance problems are caused by a lack of annual maintenance.
