Gas Safe Dewsbury
Many of us rely on gas appliances to heat our homes, provide hot water and cook our food. However poorly maintenance gas appliances are a serious safety threat to our family, pets and homes.
As Gas Safe engineers we recognise the importance being gas aware and ultimately gas safe. The Gas Safe Register was created in 2009 (replacing Corgi) to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances, which can lead to gas leaks, fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
At BrightGas we want to ensure that you are safe in your home. By following these few simple checks, you will increase the safety of yourself and your family whilst in your home:
- Check your gas appliances every year. Gas appliances should be safety checked once a year and serviced regularly by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Tenants – make sure your landlord arranges this.
- Check your engineer is Gas Safe registered. You can find and check an engineer at www.GasSafeRegister.co.uk or call 0800 408 5500. At BrightGas we are a Gas Safe registered engineer, so if you’re in Dewsbury, Ossett, Batley and the surrounding areas we’re sure we can help!
- Check your engineer’s Gas Safe Register ID card. Make sure they are qualified for the work you need doing. You can find this information on the back of the card. Also you can input the licence number from the engineer’s ID card. Consumers will be able to see pictures of the registered engineers and details of their qualifications.
It is also important to be aware of the six signs of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning: headaches, dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, collapse and loss of consciousness. Unsafe gas appliances can put you at risk of CO poisoning, gas leaks, fires and explosions. By spotting the signs early you can ensure that your family are safe. Additionally, it is also important to fit an audible carbon monoxide alarm, which will alert you if there is carbon monoxide in your home.
At BrightGas we want to ensure that you are safe in your home, so if you suspect any issues with a gas appliance of realise that your appliances are in need of a service, give us a call, 01924 631177.
