- Never block or cover air vents and flues. This could cause a build up of deadly gas fumes.
- Never attempt to remove back boilers and fires yourself. This could leave pipes and gas flues exposed.
- Don’t cover up gas pipes without treating them with wrapping tape or paint first as this could cause them to rot and leak gas.
- Know where your gas pipes are located so you don’t accidentally hammer or drill into them. Pipe detectors are available from most DIY shops.
- If you’re doing general building or having a shed, extension or conservatory built make sure your boiler’s flue isn’t blocked.
