Gas Cooker Servicing
Are you a homeowner or landlord? If so, do you regularly organise a gas cooker servicing? It may seem like a mundane task that is not always prioritised against everyday concerns such as making sure the bills are paid on time, and budgeting for supplies. However making sure that you gas cooker is serviced annually could save you your life. In addition to the risks that a neglected cooker can implicate, if your cooker is not serviced regularly then you may find that the effectiveness of the appliance reduces over a period of time.
Moreover if you are a landlord reading this, you are legally obliged to ensuring regular gas cooker servicing so as to maintain the safety and welfare of your tenants. Failure to do so could result in heavy fines and prosecution.
There are various elements of the cooker that need to be checked as part of a gas cooker servicing. These include:
• The engineer typically looking at issues you may have with your cooker. If your gas cooker emits yellow flames, uneven burning, wavy flames or partially non working jets, this suggests that food and debris must be removed from the burners and jets to allow the flame to return a well defined strong blue flame.
• The cooker will be checked for any gas leaks which can lead to Carbon monoxide poisoning.
• The connection to the gas supply will be checked to make sure that it is secure.
