Gas Safety Week: Why Gas Safe is so important

A round-up of Gas Safety Week 2019 plus a closer look at Gas Safe

Today is the last day of Gas Safety Week for 2019. Over the week we have shared lots of advice about how you can keep yourself and your family safe from the dangers of gas and carbon dioxide.

Here’s a round up of all the blogs we’ve shared this week:

Monday: Why it’s important to service your boiler annually

Nobody enjoys paying out for a boiler service every year and it can be tempting to skip it but it's actually a really important thing to do that can save you money and even your life.

Tuesday: Don’t overlook your other gas appliances

Most of us are well aware that we should be servicing our boilers every year but are you overlooking your other gas appliances? Fires and ovens are equally able to leak dangerous gas and carbon monoxide so need an annual check just as your boiler does.

Wednesday: Protect yourself from the dangers of carbon monoxide

The aim of gas Safety Week is to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances and educate people on how they can protect themselves and their families. This blog helps you understand the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and how you can stay safe.

Thursday: How would you know if your boiler was dangerous?

The warning signs that your boiler may be leaking gas and carbon monoxide.

Friday: Your rights to gas safety in rented property

For Gas Safety Week day 5 we take a look at your rights to gas safety when you live in rented property. You may not be directly responsible for gas safety in your home but you are able to hold your landlord to account. Here's how.

Saturday: How to look after your boiler

Gas safety is just reason why it makes sense to maintain your boiler well. It will enable it to work more effectively and more efficiently giving you better heat distribution and saving you money. Here's how you can take care of your boiler and extend its life.

We hope that these articles have given you some useful information and tips and that you’re perhaps a bit more aware of the issues of gas safety. Gas Safety Week is organised by the Gas Safe Register: the official list of gas businesses who are registered to work safely and legally on boilers, fires and all other gas appliances. This replaced CORGI in 2009.

Only Gas Safe registered engineers are authorised to work on gas appliances as this demonstrates that they are qualified, experienced and regularly tested on their skills and knowledge. It gives customers peace of mind that their work is safe.
