Did you know?

  • Having your gas appliances serviced every year will help keep them working safely and efficiently.
  • Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can produce deadly carbon monoxide.
  • A survey of gas engineers showed that most problems with gas appliances are caused by lack of annual servicing.

There are a few simple things you can do to avoid problems:

  • Always use a registered gas engineer.
  • Get a yearly gas safety check and boiler service (see our helpful guide to Gas Safety checks and Servicing).
  • Never block airways/vents to prevent a draft.
  • Fit an audible carbon monoxide alarm.

If you think you can smell gas or are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning (headache, nausea, dizziness) then act fast and follow this advice:

  • Get fresh air immediately. Open all doors and windows to ventilate the room.
  • Switch off the appliance and do not use it again until it has been checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
  • Turn off the gas supply at the mains.
  • Call the National Gas Emergency number (see below).
  • If you are feeling ill visit your GP or the hospital immediately and tell them that your symptoms may be related to carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Contact Ben Guest Services to check and fix the appliance.

National Gas Emergency number: 0800 111 999.
