It is important that any work carried out on a gas appliance, such as a boiler, is undertaken by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
(PRWEB UK) 8 August 2013
According to the Milton Keynes Citizen in the article “‘Gas Man’ Jailed for Sub-Standard Work’ published on August 1, a heating fitter has been jailed for nine months after illegally conducting work on a gas boiler at a property in Milton Keynes.
The boiler was found not to be correctly fitted to a flue, meaning harmful carbon monoxide could leak into the property. It was also found that the fitter was not a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
Providing engineers and plumbers in Tower Hamlets, the experts at We Fix Now were concerned by this news and a representative for the firm has offered advice on the importance of gas safety:
“It is important that any work carried out on a gas appliance, such as a boiler, is undertaken by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. Registered gas engineers have been checked to ensure that they can work with gas safely.
Gas appliances that are not maintained correctly or are broken run the risk of leaking harmful carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide can be difficult to detect and so it is important to install a carbon monoxide alarm in your home. However, this is no substitute for ensuring that gas appliances are serviced regularly by a qualified engineer, such as the ones provided by We Fix Now, who are qualified to work with gas appliances.”
