Unsafe gas appliances are at risk of gas leaks, fires, explosions and can cause deadly carbon monoxide poisoning. You should never attempt to work on a gas appliance yourself, but always get a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer to conduct your annual safety check to ensure they are safe.

Know the Signs of an Unsafe Gas Appliance

The signs to keep an eye out for, which say a gas appliance could be unsafe are:

  • burning with a lazy yellow flame
  • the pilot light often goes out
