Gas Safe Registered to work on all domestic LPG and natural gas appliances.
If you own a burger van or shop that uses LPG, you need to find someone who is commercially registered. Check with the gas safe register.
All gas appliances work in exactly the same way as natural gas.
The only difference is LPG works at a higher pressure to natural gas, in fact, it’s nearly double.
Should your boiler require a repair or service then you need to find a gas safe registered company that can work on LPG.
Just because a person or company are registered with gas safe, it does not mean they can work on LPG.
If you own a mobile home, you will have either a boiler or water heater installed, normally in one of the many cupboards.
These tend to get overlooked for the annual service, maybe because the mobile is only used for a few months of the year.
But the truth is, they should be serviced every year.
They never are until something happens like a breakdown.
Part of the service is a safety check, this ensures the appliance is safe to use.
As we all know carbon monoxide is a killer, you cannot see it, you cannot even smell it.
But appliances may be leaking carbon monoxide into the room due to a blocked or broken flue.
You would never notice it unless you have a detector installed, which is always advisable.
When we are called into an LPG boiler repair and service, the first thing we do before anything is to check the appliance flue.
We make sure it’s not corroded, check that it is supported correctly as well as the termination point.
All boilers installed these days are what is called condensing boilers, designed to be better for the environment as well as economical to use.
It will eat its way through almost anything other than plastic.
Should one of the flue seals fail, it could make the flue become unsafe, but you would never know until something bad happens.
So make sure you have your appliances checked every year, it could save your life.
