Stay Gas Safe this year - get your appliances serviced

How are your new year’s resolutions going? Still looking for something to do this January to get the year off to the right start?

Why not arrange an annual inspection for your gas appliances. Your gas heater, gas oven, gas boiler and everything else should be checked and serviced once a year, to ensure they’re running efficiently and safely.

Our advice? Never cut corners or take chances when it comes to your gas appliances. It’s just not worth the risk.

And always use a qualified, Gas Safe registered expert like XP Plumbing and Heating.


Keep an eye on your appliances throughout the year too. Just because they’re not due a service, don’t assume they can’t go wrong. If you notice any of the following warning signs, you should call a professional immediately:

  • appliance not working correctly
  • the flame is a lazy yellow, rather than a crisp blue
  • black marks or stains around the appliance
  • pilot light keeps going out
  • increased condensation in the room

If you’re concerned about any of your gas appliances, or you just think they’re due for a check-up, contact XP Plumbing and Heating of Sidcup.

Our local team of Sidcup plumbers, heating engineers, electricians and drainage technicians has great reach across the local area - including Eltham, Bexleyheath, Bromley, Chislehurst and Greenwich - as well as further out into the rest of London and north Kent.
