1. Don't delay your boiler service
Potential breakdowns can often be spotted during an annual gas safety check and could prevent your boiler from breaking down. Doing this annually will also ensure your family's safety.
2. Use a Gas Safe registered business or engineer
The Gas Safe Register is there to protect the public from unsafe gas work. It makes sure the engineer is qualified, check the engineers ID card on arrival. The back of the card should list the engineers areas of competence such as Gas Boiler, Gas Fire etc.
3. Seek advice from a reputable source
If you are unsure of anything request a visit from an engineer to show you how to top up pressure bleed radiators etc.
4. Install a carbon monoxide alarm
You cannot see it, taste it or smell it- therefore without an alarm you put yourself at risk of becoming a victim of 'the silent killer'
5. Know the symptoms
Headaches, nausea, sickness, dizziness, tiredness, confusion, stomach pain breathlessness and difficulty breathing are all signs of carbon monoxide poisoning.
