Gas and heating related issues if left untreated in the home can become dangerous and begin leaking Carbon Monoxide.
Warning signs that your gas appliances need servicing include:
- Your gas appliance is not working properly
- Your appliance is burning with a lazy yellow or orange flame instead of a crisp blue flame
- You can see soot or yellow/brown staining around or on gas appliances
- The pilot light keeps going out
- There is increased condensation inside windows
Flues and chimneys
Flues, chimneys and air vents allow gas to escape from your home. You must keep flues, chimneys and air vents clear so that fumes can escape easily.
Never block these airways to prevent a draft. Blocking ventilation is dangerous and could result in Carbon Monoxide building up in your home.
Have chimneys swept every year, no matter how much you use the fire, to make sure fumes can escape freely. Check for birds nests, leaves and other natural debris, they could be blocking the exit.
Do you live in a block of flats or terraced housing? It is also possible for Carbon Monoxide to seep into properties through shared flues and chimneys. If you live in a property with a shared flue or chimney, share responsibility to get them checked every year to make sure they are allowing gas to escape.
If you notice any of these signs or anything else that is unusual, get your local All Trades professional to check your appliances as soon as possible.
