If your boiler is incorrectly installed, poorly maintained or not regularly serviced, it can produce carbon monoxide gas. This dangerous substance is very harmful and can even lead to fatalities.

The usual symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapsing and a loss of consciousness. What’s more, it is because these signs are easily confused with the most common of illnesses like flu, food poisoning and viral infections that detection can be even more difficult.

A regular service will ensure your safety is not compromised. Along with assurances over breakdowns, servicing provides invaluable peace of mind.

It is highly recommended that you have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted in your home, because this harmful gas has no taste, smell or colour. These detectors are highly recommended.
