Gas servicing is compulsory
If you don't let us carry out your gas check, you are breaching your tenancy conditions and we will take legal action. That is how seriously we take it. Tenancy condition 34 requires tenants to give our contractors access for gas servicing.
Why is it important to have gas appliances serviced?
If they are not working properly, you will be at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide kills - you can't see it, taste it or smell it. It can be given off by appliances which burn gas, oil, coal or wood that are faulty - or if the room is not properly ventilated or the chimney / flue is blocked.
Remember the six main symptoms to look out for:
- loss of consciousness
Being aware of the symptoms could save your life.
Carbon monoxide symptoms are similar to flu, food poisoning, viral infections and simply tiredness. That’s why it’s quite common for people to mistake this very dangerous poisoning for something else.
Other signs that could point to carbon monoxide poisoning:
- Your symptoms only occur when you are at home
- Your symptoms disappear or get better when you leave home and come back when you return
- Others in your household are experiencing symptoms (including your pets) and they appear at a similar time
What should I do if I experience any symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning?
- Get fresh air immediately. Open doors and windows, turn off gas appliances and leave the house
- See your doctor immediately or go to hospital - let them know that you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning. They can do a blood or breath test to check
- If you think there is immediate danger, call the Gas Emergency Helpline on 0800 111 999.
- Don’t assume your gas appliances are safe: get a Gas Safe registered gas engineer to do a check. This is the only safe way to prevent yourself and those around you from incurring serious illness or death due to carbon monoxide exposure
