Be Safe with Gas Servicing
We recommend that all gas appliances are serviced annually, especially when they are in high-use situations
Servicing should take place no less than every two years. This is consistent with the recommendations of most manufacturers. Any appliance left unchecked could leave you at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
We offer a fixed-price servicing plan for all appliances that we have originally installed into a residential property. Our service includes the checking of all safety devices, the ignition system, gas pressures, thermostats and flues (where applicable). We will check that your appliance is running safely and well, at the same time as giving it a good clean to remove any dust, dirt and soot.
If you notice any of the following warning signs, you’ll want to get your appliance serviced right away:
- The appliance is not working properly
- The appliance is burning with a lazy yellow flame
- Black marks/stains are evident around the appliance
- The pilot light keeps going out
- There is increased condensation in the room
Gas servicing at a minimum includes all of the checks and tests to ensure an appliance is safe to operate, for example:
- It is correctly set and adjusted to ensure the gas is burning correctly
- It is of a type suitable for the room in which it is located
- It is physically stable, securely fitted and properly connected to the gas pipework
- There is an adequate and permanent air supply suitable for the appliance type installed
- Any flues or chimneys are operating correctly
- All safety devices function correctly
- A check of the condition of the appliance including (but not limited to): the effectiveness of any seals, gaskets, the cleanliness of heat exchangers etc. and checking for any signs of heat or other distress
- In addition, we will pressure-check any gas pipework associated with the appliance
This is not an exhaustive list and servicing requirements will vary across appliance types and models.
