Thinking About Doing It Yourself or Getting a Handyman In?
If you decide to do it yourself (how hard can it be you might be thinking), or getting a 'handyman', if you one yourself then please think again. By using an unlicensed gas fitter or doing it yourself to install your gas appliances, then you will not be able to issued you with a certificate of compliance.
Not having one of these could void your appliance warranty and pose a health and safety risk to your home, office, employees or loved ones, not to mention it is simply not safe to use the professionals.
How to tell if you have a gas leak?
Suspect a gas leak but not sure, below are a list of signs you can look out for that might indicate a gas leak.
You can smell or sniff a rotten egg or sulphur smell near your gas appliances
You can hear a hissing sound, indicating that maybe gas is leaking
Unexplainable, higher than usual gas bills
Dead or dying plants (not as a result of lack of care)
A white mist in the air
Gas appliances with red or yellow flames and not blue
Feeling unwell, nausea, headaches, difficulty or irregular breathing, fatigue, chest pain, flu like symptoms, dizziness or light-headed, and drowsiness can all be signs of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
A great way to test your theory that you have a gas leak is to spray of rub (really) soapy water (using diswashing detergent is best) over the area where you think a leak may be coming from. If bubbles are formmed then this is a very clear indication of a gas leak.
