Keeping Safe – Gas Safety Tips

You don’t often think about your boiler or gas appliances, or the risks involved but there are plenty of gas safety risks that you should be aware of.

Gas leaks. Gas leaks can occur when there’s a problem with your gas pipework, such as damage, corrosion or rusting. Un-burnt natural gas and LPG are not posionous in the same way that carbon monoxide is, but can still lead to fires and explosions. To aid detection of a leak, an odorant is added to gas which makes it easy to smell.

Fires and explosions. Gas is naturally highly combustible. Correctly fitted gas appliances that have been maintained well ensure that gas is burned in a safe and controlled way. However if gas leaks from faulty pipework or a faulty appliance, it can spread quickly and there is a risk of it accidentally igniting a fire or causing an explosion.

Carbon monoxide. If there is a problem with your gas appliances they can produce a highly poisonous gas called carbon monoxide which can leak into your home. You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can kill quickly and with no warning. It can also cause serious long term health problems.
Carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms are similar to flu, food poisoning, viral infections and tiredness. It is common for people to mistake this very dangerous poisoning for something else. The six main symptoms to look out for are:

  1. Headaches
  2. Dizziness
  3. Nausea
  4. Breathlessness
  5. Collapse
  6. Loss of consciousness

Please make sure that you know the facts on carbon monoxide as it could save your life.

Gas emergency. If you smell gas, or start feeling ill when gas appliances are in use, it is important to act quickly to protect you and your family. All of your gas appliances, including your boiler, cooker and fire should be serviced at least once a year.
