Gas Safety Advice!

Be Gas Safe at home. Understand the risks of dangerous gas work and only use a Gas Safe registered engineer

Gas Safe Register is the official list of gas engineers who are registered to work safely and legally on gas appliances.  By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register.  It has replaced CORGI registration.

We take it for granted that our boilers, cookers and gas fires are safe. It is only when there is a problem with an appliance that many people take any notice of it at all.

Boiler need replacing? Need a new cooker? Get your new gas appliance fitted safely.

Knowing where to start when you need a new boiler, cooker or fire can be daunting. There are so many different types of appliance on the market, where do you begin? How do you know who should install it and what paperwork you need?. A quick call to Pace Heating & Plumbing who can wallk you through simple steps to help you get the right gas appliance for your home and make sure it is installed safely and legally.

The Building Regulations for both England and Wales make it a legal requirement for the appropriate Local Authority (LA) to be informed about the installation of a heat producing gas appliance e.g. boiler or fire.

Only a Gas Safe registered businesses/engineers can legally fit a new gas appliance. Once a gas appliance has been installed it can only be notified by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

If you have a new gas appliance fitted your Gas Safe registered engineer must let your LA know. This is achieved through a self-certification process known as notification. Registered engineers have duty to comply with the Building Regulations by installing gas appliances and then notifying the appliance to the relevant LA. However that duty is also is shared to an extent with the property owner, as the responsibility ultimately falls upon the property owner to ensure that the Building Regulations are complied with and may be the focus of any Building Regulations related enforcement action by the LA if the work is not notified.

get your gas appliances safety checked every year

Gas appliances that are left unchecked could be dangerous and leaking carbon monoxide

All of your gas appliances, including your gas boiler, gas cooker and gas fire should be safety checked once a year and serviced regularly according to manufacturer’s instructions. If you do not have your gas appliances regularly serviced and safety checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer you could be putting you and your family at risk and in possible danger of carbon monoxide poisoning.

fit a carbon monoxide alarm

Carbon monoxide kills if left undetecte

For the safety of you and your family, it is advisable to fit a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm in your home.  Just like a smoke alarm which alerts you to the presence of smoke, a carbon monoxide detector will alert you to the presence of CO.

The difference with CO is that it is invisible and has no smell or taste, so you might not realise it is there.

Smoke alarms do not detect carbon monoxide.

When it comes to gas you don't want to get it wrong. Mistakes are expensive and could cost you your life.

Don't DIY with gas.

1 in 3 people say they would fit a gas appliance themselves to save money. In the right hands, gas is safe, but badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. You may think you know what you’re doing but it’s not like changing a tap; it’s dangerous to DIY with gas and could put your family’s life at risk.

It’s important that you don’t try to fit, fix or move gas appliances such as your boiler or cooker yourself. Only Gas Safe registered engineers have the right skills to do this safely. Gas Safe registered engineers retrain regularly to ensure they are up-to-date with new technology and appliances.
