The following is a best practice guide to dealing with a potential gas leak.

Gas is usually a safe and easy way to heat your house but it can also be potentially dangerous if a leak occurs or an appliance is faulty.

Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas boilers, cookers and fires can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.

In a gas emergency act quickly and take the following safety steps:

  • Get fresh air immediately. Open all doors and windows to ventilate the room
  • Switch off the appliance and do not use it again until it has been checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer
  • Turn off the gas supply at the mains
  • Do not turn lights on or off and avoid using other electrical switches and appliances as this could trigger an explosion.
  • Do not smoke, light a match or any other naked flame.
  • If you are feeling ill visit your GP or the hospital immediately and tell them that your symptoms may be related to carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Contact Prime Gas Services, your local Gas Safe registered engineer to check and fix the appliance.
