*Please note we only service Gas Fires. We don’t install them
Gas Fires are a safe and efficient way to heat your home, and they add another element of cosiness to the living room, which you can’t beat in the depths of winter.
Gas fires are fuel-burning appliances that need servicing every 12 months. The internal components of fires need cleaning so your fire can run at the maximum efficiency, safety devices need checking, and flues need testing to ensure your fire’s not a carbon monoxide risk.
All the above is covered in a Gas Fire Service. TM Hughes & Son have conducted many in and around the Billericay area over the past 3o years. Our Gas Safe Registered engineers can service any fire.
A service ensures your fire’s energy-efficient and safe—the chance of breakdowns highly reduced after a service. Minor issues are identified and rectified before they cause failure.
Annual servicing also validates warranties and insurance. You’ll find most warranties and breakdown insurance are null and void if the fire hasn’t been serviced in the past 12 months.
If you’re a landlord, an annual gas fire service is good practice and can be done simultaneously as compulsory Gas Safety checks.
Gas Fires have the potential to produce carbon monoxide, which can poison and kill. Carbon monoxide occurs when fuel appliances don’t burn at the correct rate or flues, and chimneys are not working properly.
A service will uncover any issues. Any sign of carbon monoxide will become apparent as soon as an engineer studies your fire.
Soot stains in specific places on the fire, difficult lighting, and excess smoke signify a poorly performing fire and a potential carbon monoxide risk. Servicing may solve the issues, or a repair/replacement may be in order.
While annual servicing greatly reduces the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, a carbon monoxide alarm should be installed close to the fire to warn you and your family in the event of a fault. Our engineer will check your alarm and position during the service.
