Carbon monoxide is a danger to anyone with a fuel burning appliance in the home. Known as the "silent killer" carbon monoxide is odourless, colourless and tasteless, meaning that most people do not even realise they are being poisoned. Regular servicing of your boiler helps to ensure it is combusting fuel safely and efficiently, minimising the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
For the elderly, vulnerable or families with young children, ensuring you have a working boiler is a must for the winter months. Lack of heating and hot water can have severe health and financial repercussions for some.
Landlords are obliged to have a gas safety certificate by law and must ensure their boilers are running safely. An annual boiler service is essential and a relatively inexpensive piece of maintenance to undergo each year.
Maintaining an appliance will almost certainly save you money in the long run. The cost of regularly maintaining a gas appliance can be a lot less than the cost of repairing or replacing an appliance that is not serviced and breaks down. When it comes to household appliances, your boiler is one of the more expensive ones to replace and repair.
Heating engineers working on gas boilers and appliances should all be Gas Safe registered. Engineers can be qualified to carry out different types of gas work. You can check what your gas engineer is registered for by visiting the Gas Safe website, or by asking to see your engineers card. At 1st Gas Engineers Ltd our engineers are registered to carry out work on LPG and natural gas appliances within the home and natural gas commercial appliances in the work place.
