Do I Need My Fire Servicing?
If your Fire hasn’t been serviced in the last 12 months, you should have it serviced
If your Fire is difficult to light, has soot stains on the outside, or your room is smokey when the Fire’s on, then you need service ASAP.
If you or anyone in the household’s experiencing tiredness, drowsiness, dizzy spells, nausea or headaches, don’t use your Fire or any other gas appliances until a gas engineer has checked things over. The above symptoms are an indication of carbon monoxide poisoning.
