Service Your Gas Fire
Gas fires should be safety checked once a year and serviced regularly according to manufacturer’s instructions. If you do not have your gas appliances regularly serviced and safety checked by a registered engineer you could be putting you and your family at risk and in possible danger of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Flues, chimneys and air vents
Flues, chimneys and air vents play a vital role in the safe operating of gas appliances. Flues and chimneys allow products of combustion to escape from your home. Air vents ensure there is a good supply of combustion air (ventilation) to appliances. For this reason you must keep all flues, chimneys and air vents clear. Never block these airways to prevent a draft. Blocking ventilation is dangerous and could result in carbon monoxide building up in your home. Have chimneys checked every year, no matter how much you use the fire, to make sure there are no blockages and fumes can escape freely. The Gas Safe registered engineer will check for bird’s nests, leaves and other natural debris, they could be blocking the exit

Who should service my boiler?
It is illegal for anybody other than a Registered Gas Installer to service your boiler. Your gas boiler should only be serviced by a Registered Gas Installer (RGI) as he/she will have the required competency and experience to deal with the servicing, repair and setup of gas appliances.
The RGI will also check if the boiler is correctly installed and operating in a suitable environment.
