Boiler safety tips

  1. Check for warning signs that indicate your gas boiler is not working correctly e.g. staining on or around the boiler, the pilot light keeps going out or too much condensation in the room.
  2. Check flue outlets are un-obstructed; never try to block draughts. If you can't see part, or all of the flue, get inspection hatches fitted immediately.
  3. Have it safety checked every year and serviced as per the manufacturer's instructions.

Remember: Always use a Gas Safe registered engineer to fit, fix and service your gas boiler.
