Gas Safe Plumbing and Heating
Should I call an Emergency Plumber to help with a Gas Leak?
Not all plumbers are trained to deal with gas leaks and only an engineer who is Gas Safe registered should attend to this type of work.
There are many plumbers who are Gas Safe registered in your local area who can deal with the problem of a gas leak. If you want to be safe, be sure that you contact National Gas Emergency number on 0800 111 999 and they will arrange for a Gas Safe engineer to fix your problem.
Why should I contact a Gas Safe Engineer if I smell gas?
Leaking gas in your home can be the cause of badly fitted gas boilers, fires or cookers. The effects of leaking gas in you home can cause nausea, dizziness, carbon monoxide poisoning and explosions.
Central Heating Maintenance
Should I Ensure that I get an Annual Gas Boiler Servicing?
Following a boiler installation or old boiler servicing, you should get it serviced again within 12 months to ensure that it is working correctly. This is a required service that homeowners must complete and many customers wish to understand why they should pay the extra cost.
Most gas boiler manufacturers advise that your boiler undertakes an annual boiler servicing to ensure that it remains operating efficiently. If you fail to carry out a boiler servicing by a Gas Safe registered engineer, you may find that your manufacturer guarantee becomes void.
Getting your boiler serviced on an annual basis requires additional money spent each year but the results of not having your boiler checked and serviced could become even more costly and result in loosing your guarantee, having to pay for costly repairs or a boiler replacement.
Understanding Power Flushing
Why should I invest in a power flushing of my heating system?
A central heating system which has been treated by a power flushing engineer can save up to 15% on energy costs than a system which has not been treated. For an average heating bill of £800, you could save £120 each year.
Power flushing your central heating system will offer your home an improved circulation of heat produced, a quicker hot water warming time, improvement in efficiency and a warmer home for less energy costs.
Having a power flushing service in your home will also reduce noise from your boiler and radiators whilst reducing emissions which are harmful to the environment.
