Avoiding Gas Boiler Woes This Winter

How to avoid being caught in the cold should your gas boiler pack in, in the worst possible time of the year

“Winter draws on… winter is coming… the two worst winters: Mike and…” (Cut! Before the estate of the two deceased comedians try to sue us). Ah yes, winter. A time of the year associated with snow. In Swinton, Salford, and the rest of the northern hemisphere, it is associated with Christmas. Also a distinct lack of buses on Christmas Day. If you’re unlucky, that time of the year when the gas boiler packs in. That is worse than a week’s worth of leftover turkey.

A few more things to consider

Further to the Boiler Guide’s infographic, we also recommend fitting a carbon monoxide detector. In the UK, fifty people a year have died from carbon monoxide poisoning due to faulty gas boilers. For the price of an Indian meal or two, it is a small price to pay to save your life.
