Gas Safety Tips

Gas appliances are energy efficient, safe, affordable, and reliable. Like any appliance, it is important to understand that there are potential health and safety risks.

Here are our top 5 tips to ensure that your gas appliances are running safely and efficiently.

  1. Ensure all gas appliances are installed and regularly serviced by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer. Appliances should be serviced at least once a year. By law, a gas engineer must be registered to carry out work on gas appliances. All the engineers at Browne's Gas Services are Gas Safe Registered.

  1. If you think a gas appliance might not be working properly then do not use it, under any circumstances.

  1. Ensure that ventilation bricks, grills or outside flues are not covered or blocked or obstructed.

  1. A carbon monoxide detector can be used as an extra safety measure (although don't rely on this alone).

  1. If you live in rented accommodation, then remember that it is your landlord's legal obligation to arrange an annual gas safety check.
