Don’t DIY with gas.
1 in 3 people says they would fit a gas appliance themselves to save money.
In the right hands, gas is safe, but badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires,
explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.
You may think you know what you’re doing but it’s not like changing a tap;
it’s dangerous to DIY with gas and could put your family’s life at risk.
It’s important that you don’t try to fit, fix or move gas appliances such as your boiler or cooker yourself.
Only Gas Safe registered engineers have the right skills to do this safely.

In all cases, homeowners had left their project to a builder,
contractor or project manager to handle who in turn subcontracted to dangerous and illegal gas fitters.
