Gas Safety Information


Hi Guys!

Today is going to be an important post that is a bit serious but in theory would be relevant to all of us and it is talking about gas safety.

Flogas are creating an e-book at the moment all about gas safety in the home and ahead of this I wanted to have a little discussion here on the blog and offer my own tips.

When it comes to gas safety it's really important to make sure that your appliances are being fitted properly and maintained by professional, Gas Safe registered engineers for optimum peace of mind. When things malfunction due to errors made the risks are very real and include explosions, leaks, potential fires and also the danger of CO poisoning, all really scary but ultimately avoidable.

Carbon Monoxide poisoning is really hard to detect as it's not as if you can see it, taste it or smell it in the same way as normal gas so having an alarm (that works and is regularly maintained/checked) should be a priority. It is only around £15 and can be found in most high street hardware stores so there is really no excuse not to get one for your home, always check for the relevant compliance with the British Standard EN 50291 and the relevant approval mark.

In the event you suspect something is off like smelling gas, your best bet would be to evacuate the property and give the Gas Safety advice line a call on 0800 300 363. I think on these things it's better to be safe than sorry and you should always be really diligent about smells, if you see visible fumes or can taste something different in the air around your house.

Let me know your tips on gas safety below in the comments, I'd love to hear them.

Thanks for reading! Love Sally X
