With several deaths per year linked to gas leaks in addition to hundreds of hospitalizations, gas safety and gas leak repair is something every household should take seriously. If your appliance is badly fitted, gas can escape — typically from the gas hose that leads into your appliance or from around the seal — so you should always make sure your appliances are installed by a professional, licensed plumber or gas fitter.
If your appliances are a bit older and you are having them serviced, always use a licensed plumber. You should also be cautious of old or second-hand appliances, particularly if you are just moving into a new property or renting. Luckily there are some easy-to-spot signs that will tell you if your old appliances are faulty.
