It is illegal to carry out any gas related work in the UK without a formal qualification and being listed on a Gas Safe Register. Always ask a tradesman for his Gas Safe Register number and be sure to check it online.
If you smell gas make sure that you or anyone else in the vicinity do not use any kind of ignition source such as – matches, lighters or electrical switches.
If it is inside the house aditionally to the above you should open all windows and doors to vent the property, locate your gas meter and turn the ECV (Emergency Control Valve) handle to switch off the supply of gas to your property.
After that call emergency services and stay away from affected area, but have access to it for when the emergency services arrive.

With gas related accidents people tend to think about an explosion. And while it does happen occasionally a still worse gas to be aware of is CO (Carbon Monoxide) which is responsible for many more fatalities than gas explosions.
CO is a colourless and odourless gas. It can be produced when a fire is burning. Your gas appliances at home normally produce very small ammounts and when correctly installed, all CO should be completely removed via flues, chimneys or ventilatilation. However if not installed correctly or if applience is faulty it could result in excess ammounts of CO being produced and released in to your home.
Because of that it is very important to service your gas appliances at least once a year or as per manufacturers recommendation.
Because CO is colourless and odourless you can’t detect it without special equipment, however, here are some early simptoms and signs of CO poisoning.
Headache Nausea Dizziness Feeling of weakness
If any of these symptoms are occuring regularly, make a note of when they occur. For example you may not have noticed, but perhaps you get a headache around the same time your boiler turns on. This should be a red flag and if you suspect this is happening you should immediately turn the applience off and call us for advice, service or repair.
