Serving involves cleaning the fire, checking the burner, and testing flues and safety devices. The service also verifies your gas fire isn’t a carbon monoxide risk.
Carbon monoxide is produced by gas appliances when feul isn’t burned correctly, or flues and chimneys are not expelling exhaust gasses correctly.
Our engineer will instantly notice signs of carbon monoxide when servicing your gas fire.
Difficult to light fires, soot stains, and smoke indicate carbon monoxide.
The correct setting and testing of the gas burner and a flue gas analysis will ensure your fire isn’t a carbon monoxide risk.
A carbon monoxide alarm should accompany gas fires. Our engineer will make recommendations if an alarm isn’t present in the same room as your fire.
