If you smell gas or have reason to believe there’s been a gas leak you should take immediate action. Call the National Gas Emergency Service number on 0800 111999, 24 hours a day. The National Gas Emergency Service will identify the source of the leak and repair it, free of charge, if it’s outside your home or property. If the leak’s coming from within your home or property, the National Gas Emergency Service is only permitted to spend a maximum of 30 minutes locating and repairing the problem. If the source of the leak can’t be fixed within this time it’s likely the gas supply will be shut off. It is then the homeowner’s responsibility to repair the leak. Whatever the circumstance, the National Gas Emergency Service will always make your property safe before leaving the site.   Tips for dealing with a gas leak: Do
  • Vacate the property where you suspect there’s been a leak
  • Turn off the gas meter (but don’t turn on any lights to do so)
  • Notify your gas supplier
  • Open doors and windows
Don’t
  • Switch on any electrical devices or light switches
  • Turn on any gas appliances
  • Light a fire, use a naked flame or smoke
Carbon monoxide is invisible, tasteless and scent-free and extremely dangerous. Around 20 people in the UK die every year due to CO Poisoning. This is why it is so important to get your gas appliances tested and checked regularly. Formed naturally when a compound containing carbon burns incompletely, carbon monoxide is created due to a lack of oxygen. Occasionally present in homes due to poorly fitted gas appliances, or those that are badly repaired or poorly maintained, carbon monoxide can often occur if flues, chimneys or vents are blocked.
Similar to the effects of a hangover or flu, it’s vital to be aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. There are six main symptoms:
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Breathlessness
  • Nausea
  • Collapse
  • Loss of consciousness
While these symptoms may seem ordinary in isolation, if they occur only within your home, and you feel better outside, or you see similar effects in the people and animals you live with, you should visit your GP as soon as possible to rule out carbon monoxide poisoning. If you suspect a gas leak call the National Gas Emergency Service number on 0800 111999 immediately.
