Whilst our boiler cover and insurance promises repair of your boiler in the event of a breakdown, we recommend a gas specialist looks at your boiler straight away if you smell gas. This is to ensure that your boiler is completely safe for both your home and your health.
If you smell gas from your boiler, you should immediately report a suspected gas leak to the National Gas Emergency Helpline by calling 0800 111 999.
You should also adhere to the following guidelines to maintain safety whilst you wait for a Gas Safety Engineer to arrive:
If you’re wondering why your boiler smells like gas, there are a multitude of reasons that could be causing it. If you have home emergency boiler cover but recognise signs of a potentially serious gas leak, for example, a rotten egg smell, we always recommend contacting a gas safety specialist. A specialist can provide a proper diagnosis in case a dangerous situation was to occur.
We offer an optional boiler service with our home emergency cover packages, allowing you to keep track of your boiler’s health on an annual basis. For more information, view our boiler cover packages and get an instant quote online.
