Summer and the warm weather can be a great time for a gas safety check with minimal hassle. If you’ve got gas at home, and haven’t had your appliances serviced by a professional in a while, the fact that they’re being used a lot less makes the summer months a great time to get it sorted.
Anything in your home that runs on gas - whether it’s your cooker, boiler, gas fires and heaters, or anything else - needs to be serviced regularly by a qualified professional. We recommend at least once a year.
And if you’ve recently had your gas appliances serviced, set yourself a reminder for next time, with the Gas Safe Register’s handy new reminder tool. You can find it on their website.
Recent research by the Gas Safe Register suggests that one in six gas appliances in UK homes is unsafe, a worryingly high number.
Our advice? Never cut corners when it comes to the gas appliances in your home or business. It’s just not worth the risk.
If it’s been a year or more since your gas appliances were inspected by a professional, get them seen to today! And always use a qualified, Gas Safe registered expert like XP Plumbing and Heating.
