Annual servicing of
all gas appliances is very important.
Incorrectly fitted, badly repaired or poorly maintained
gas appliances are a major cause of carbon monoxide (CO)
poisoning. They can also lead to gas leaks and explosions.
Tragically, on average 25 people a year die from CO poisoning,
and many more suffer health problems from CO exposure directly
related to gas. In addition, some 40 people a year are killed
or injured in gas explosions. (Source: HSE Gas Safety Statistics)
Worryingly, the research for Gas Safe Register found that
regular servicing of gas appliances is not a priority in
far too many households. Almost a fifth (19.05%) of households
with a gas boiler had not had it serviced for at least three
years and an alarming 13% of households had never had their
boiler serviced or would only do so if there was a problem.
By law, from 1 April, only Gas Safe registered engineers
should be employed to carry out work on gas installations
or appliances, CORGI gas registration will not be valid.
Registered engineers will be identified with the new yellow
Gas Safe Register logo, and every engineer will carry a
Gas Safe Register ID card with their own unique licence
Before you have any gas work done in your home, make sure
you check the ID card.
My charges for an annual service are £39.00 for
the first appliance and £20 for the second appliance
in the same property. A discount will be awarded to returning
customers if the appliance is serviced before the anniversary
of your last service. Reminder cards will be sent out
11 months after your last service.
