Gas boilers are the most commonly used fuel source in the UK. However, nearly 3.6m households all around the UK have no relation with gas lines. This means they need to find off-grid alternatives to natural gas. More often than not, oil boilers are installed where there is no access to gas. Although, there has been an increase in the use of LPG boilers as an alternative which is probably because they are more environmentally friendly! So if you want to reduce your carbon footprint, LPG is the way to go.
- Only Gas Safe or Oftec registered engineers can work on gas or oil appliances, this is especially important for installations.
- If you are a Landlord all gas appliances need to be tested and listed in order to complete a Landlords certificate- this is mandatory.
Although not strictly a legal requirement as yet, you must get your gas or oil appliance serviced regularly by a Gas Safe or Oftec registered engineer. With the introduction of the Home Buyers pack you need to show that you are doing the appropriate maintenance to your gas or oil appliances, this will prove vital if you try to sell your house at a later date.
A faulty appliance can undoubtedly cost you money through poor efficiency, however far more importantly it can cost lives. All appliances need to be checked regularly even when not in use as deterioration to many parts of the appliance can still occur.
There are many tell-tale signs that your appliance may need servicing. It may seem obvious but the first sign is that your appliance is simply not working properly, as soon as you notice this it is important to get it looked at by a professional right away. Other signs include the pilot light going out, a greater amount of condensation in the room, black stains around the appliance or noticing a lazy yellow flame rather than a solid blue flame. By getting your appliance looked at as soon as you notice any problem, you can potentially pay for a small fix rather than paying for a brand new boiler.
