We are concerned about the health and safety of our customers. We survey your central heating system to highlight and resolve potential risks. One of such risks is carbon monoxide (CO) which is a poisonous gas having no color, smell, or taste. So, this makes it even more harmful because you will not know it exists.
Tips to save you and your family from carbon monoxide:
- Get your gas appliances a proper examination at least once every year
- Book your boiler services with AR heating so that our certified engineers help you with the best services in town
- Keep a record of previous safety checks if you have just moved to a new house
- Conduct a safety check on the combustible appliances within the property, preferably with the help of experts
- Ensure all combustible appliances and associated pipework are in safe and working order
- Take serious action if you are facing chimney blockages
- The blue light of flame on most of the boilers is a safety indication
- If the flame color shows red, yellow, or orange then you could have a CO leak and should arrange for an engineer to check the problem
- Stains or discoloration on your boiler and soot on your fireplace could be an indication of a CO leak
- Have a carbon monoxide alarm installed
- There are a few tips that can help you save your home’s energy consumption and increase the efficiency of your home.
- Use Showers instead of Baths, this will save water
- Save yourself from emergency repairs by getting your home’s central heating system repaired yearly
- Use Insulations for walls and windows to save heat loss
- Use insulation jackets on your boiler tanks to save long-term expenses
- Turning the heating temperature up to make your home warmer will not help. If the temperature rises above 60⁰C, the boiler will naturally start cooling down the water to balance the heating effect.
- Fill in all the gaps under the doors, windows, walls, or any other spaces
- Upgrade your boiler to an energy-efficient one frequently
- Use modern technology equipment with the boiler so they do not consume excessive energy
- Make sure your devices are intelligent to auto-turn off when they sense risky consumption of heat or personalize it to ensure it turns off when there is no one around
