As with all heating appliances, your gas boiler needs to be serviced once a year, as recommended by the manufacturers, to ensure that it is operating efficiently and safely.
If you have reason to suspect that someone is working on gas installations or servicing / repairing appliances without being a Registered Gas Installer, please report it to us.
The CER is pleased to announce, following a public procurement process, the appointment
of a Gas Safety Supervisory Body (SSB) to regulate gas installers in respect of safety in Ireland. From January 2016 RGII Register of Gas Installers of Ireland Ltd. will be the Safety Supervisory Body. These arrangements will be in place until the end of 2022. Customers can have peace of mind that Registered Gas Installers (RGIs), who carry out work in their home, do so safely thereby protecting lives and property
This year the Carbon Monoxide awareness week will run from Monday 21 to Friday 25 September. Like in previous years, the aim of the campaign is to highlight the fact that carbon monoxide (CO) can, and does, kill. It’s colourless, odourless, hard to detect and it can kill in less than three minutes.
