We tend to take it for granted that our gas boilers and heating systems will always be working for us during the cold winter months. But the very fact that we depend on our gas appliances more amid the chill of December and January can also put them at greater risk of failing.

That’s why you should be proactive in looking after your home’s gas appliances, including not only your boiler and central heating system, but also any cookers, hobs, hot water appliances, heaters or fires you may have in your property.

However, you certainly shouldn’t be trying to do the sensitive and potentially extremely dangerous work of servicing, repairing or installing a gas appliance yourself. Instead, get in touch with our Gas Safe registered Leatherhead, Tadworth or Barnes plumbers, and they’ll be able to quickly put your mind at rest ahead of the winter.

Don’t run the risk of unexpected heating failure

Of course, even the best-prepared London or Home Counties resident cannot completely guarantee that their gas appliances won’t encounter problems over the colder months. But if you’ve ever had your boiler or another key gas appliance fail on you, you’ll be familiar with the frustration, inconvenience and discomfort this can cause. That can be all the more the case when it occurs at the time of year you’re likely to be most dependent on these appliances.

One simple step that you can take is having all of your gas appliances checked once a year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Our own engineers are skilled in spotting the signs of a malfunctioning or even unsafe appliance, and will check such aspects as whether each appliance in your home is properly set and adjusted, physically stable and properly connected to the gas pipework.


With the expertise of our Brentford, Dorking and Barnes plumbers encompassing not only servicing and repairs, but also the likes of new installations and homebuyer reports, you don’t need to look anywhere else for these vital services as a Greater London or Home Counties householder.

Only ever work with Gas Safe registered engineers

A gas appliance that has been correctly installed and maintained can be depended on to be efficient, clean and economical. You should only ever have your gas appliances looked at and maintained by a Gas Safe registered engineer, such as our professionals here at PGS Plumbers.

Our plumbers are knowledgeable about the regulatory standards that apply to gas appliance installation, servicing and repair, and will conduct themselves accordingly, for your utmost peace of mind.

With the consequences of improperly handling a gas appliance or leaving it unsafe potentially including gas leaks that can cause fires or explosions, and carbon monoxide poisoning that can be especially deadly because it cannot be seen, tasted or smelled, working with a Gas Safe registered engineer will also help to protect you and your loved ones.

Call 0203 370 0066 today, and our Hampstead, Wembley and Barnes plumbers will be able to provide a highly competitive free quote for any of this vital work on your gas appliances ahead of the Christmas period.
