What should I do if I smell gas?
If you can smell gas in your home, call the National Gas Emergency Service on freephone 0800 111 999 immediately and follow the instructions given. These will include:
- Turning off the gas supply immediately at the meter/emergency control valve
- Extinguishing all sources of ignition
- Not smoking
- Not operating electrical light or power switches (on or off)
- Opening doors and windows to ventilate the property
What are the symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas, which has no colour, taste or smell. Faulty gas appliances could cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Symptoms include:
- Flu-like symptoms such as nausea
- Chest pains
- Sickness, diarrhoea and stomach pains
What can I do to prevent plumbing problems?
- Identify where your ‘Mains Cold Water Stop Tap’ is and monthly give it a clockwise and a quarter turn back to stop it ceasing.
- Ensure your water pipes in your loft are insulated.
- Don’t let small leaks develop into big problems i.e. patches on ceiling (could be a serious leak in roof) or overflows leaking (could cause damage to walls)
How can I protect my gutters from damage during cold weather?
Clean gutters regularly – blocked/dirty gutters can cause overflows which, if frozen, could result in them coming down with the weight.
What can I do to prevent electrical problems?
- Always make sure water and electrics don’t come into contact with one another – keep spillable liquids away from plugs and electrical equipment.
- Switch unnecessary appliances off when away from your property for a period of time.
- Don’t leave chargers on overnight – this can cause fires.
