Did you know that this week is Gas Safety Week (18-24th September)? Today we’re partnering with the energy company SSE to share 5 simple tips to help you and your family stay safe at home.
Now the weather has taken a decidedly chillier tone I have to admit that the doors and windows are closed, the heating is on and the winter duvet is out! I love Autumn as you know, I can’t stop writing about it! I love an Autumn clean as much as I love Spring cleaning and it’s a good time to check all your appliances are safe for the winter months.
In our house we have a gas boiler and hob. They are used all year round but some households will have gas heating and it’s so important to make sure that these appliances are in good condition, especially if they haven’t been used during the summer. One of my friends recently suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning through a faulty gas appliance and the side effects can be life threatening. Carbon monoxide is known as the silent killer because it doesn’t smell so it’s really important that you follow some simple steps to ensure your appliances are safe. Which is why today I wanted to share 5 top tips for keeping your family gas safe – important during Gas Safety Week and all year round.
