When the weather forecast predicts that winter will be colder than usual we should all be prepared for a cold, harsh winter.
For most of us that means dressing warmly and ensuring that we have a warm house to hold up in when we come in from the cold.
We have taken advice from experts on how to insulate our houses and keep costs down.
No doubt we will also be spending longer indoors too.. With all this time indoors, the last thing on our minds is health and safety.
Statistics from Gas Safe Register should make us think twice..
According to their research 43% of people don’t get their gas appliances checked regularly!
Nearly 1 in 10 households have been living with appliances that have never been checked.
That means items such as boilers, cookers and gas fires, not to mention the non-gas appliances such as carbon monoxide and fire alarms.
If your property is rented, landlords are legally required to have gas safety checks carried out and be able to show tenants the relevant safety certificates.
If you are a home owner, you should consider having all appliances tested for peace of mind.
The Gas Safe Register website provides some top tips on staying gas safe at home.
