Gas appliances that have not properly been maintained can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide is known as the ‘silent killer’ because you can’t see, smell or taste it. Therefore, it is highly important to have your gas appliances checked by an engineer who is on the Gas Safe Register.


James Russell, Operations Manager for BTU Installation & Maintenance said: “It is our job to make sure that people’s gas appliances are operating safely and efficiently. In some instances, people do not know the signs and symptoms of faulty gas appliances and carbon monoxide poisoning. Because of this, we are supporting Gas Safety Week in order to alert the public of the seriousness that is unsafe gas appliances and how they can keep themselves and their families safe.”

This Gas Safety Week we have the support of BTU Installation & Maintanance and by working together we can keep the public informed of gas safety and help reduce the risk of dangerous gas appliances across the UK.”
