It’s vital to call gas safe registered professionals if you notice any of the following warning signs:

You Smell Gas

If you can smell gas or any unusual fumes you should turn off the gas if you’re able to do so safely and call for immediate assistance. Open windows and doors and leave the property until you’re told it’s safe to go inside.

There are some physical symptoms you may experience if you have a gas leak:

  • Dizzy
  • Feeling sick or lightheaded
  • Headaches

If these symptoms improve with fresh air you probably do have a gas leak. Also note that the above symptoms could be the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. If you suspect or are experiencing a gas leak, do not turn on any electrical switches, don’t smoke or use any other naked flames and avoid using anything that could cause a spark.

Other Serious Faults

Call your gas boiler repair specialists if you notice that your pilot light won’t stay on or the flame is yellow. You should also be aware of a number of not quite so serious faults that will need fixing but aren’t considered to cause an immediate threat to life. These signs are:

  • Overheating boiler caused by a blockage
  • Low pressure
  • Trapped air
