Gas safety week takes place between 13th and 19th September and is an annual opportunity to remind ourselves of the steps we can take to avoid danger in our homes.
It is estimated that 1 in 5 gas boilers checked by an engineer are found to be unsafe and up to a quarter of all UK homes have one unsafe gas appliance within them.
Better Homes Yorkshire can offer eligible residents the opportunity to get a brand-new gas boiler at a reduced rate – so why not check now if you could benefit – simply click here: www.betterhomesyorkshire.co.uk/new-boiler
If you are a tenant you should ask to see your landlord’s gas safety record.
Following these simple tips can also help you to stay gas safe:
•Regularly check your gas appliances for wear and tear and get them repaired or replace them
•Check your gas engineer is safe registered
•Always check your gas engineer’s Gas Safe ID card
•Install carbon monoxide alarms in your home and check regularly that they are in good working order
