Will you be Gas Safe this Christmas?

Will you be Gas Safe this Christmas?

According to stats just released by the Gas Safe Register, London is one of the top ten UK cities for unsafe gas appliances.

Shockingly, a quarter of the London gas appliances they’ve inspected were found to be unsafe. And with all the extra use that gas cookers and heaters will get over the Christmas period, the risk of fire and other incidents goes up too.

This year, give yourself an early Christmas present - peace of mind - by arranging an inspection of your gas appliances before the big day.

We recommend you get your gas appliances - whether it’s a gas oven, gas fire or boiler - serviced a minimum of once a year to ensure they remain safe and efficient.

And only ever use a Gas Safe registered engineer like XP Plumbing and Heating to fit, service, inspect or repair your gas appliances. Never cut corners or take chances when it comes to gas. It’s just not worth the risk.
