What Are The Symptoms?
The most obvious sign of a leak is the smell of gas. You could also be feeling ill as a result of a gas leak.
The symptoms include:
- Feeling lightheaded
If you’re suffering from these symptoms and suspect a leak, you should go outside immediately. If you feel better in fresh air, you could be suffering from the effects of a gas leak
What to do if you smell gas?
- Open doors and windows to allow fresh air in.
- Turn off the gas at ECV, which is usually near the meter. Move the handle a quarter turn until it’s at 90 degrees from the pipe to shut off the gas supply.
- Leave the property.
- Phone the National Gas Emergencies number on 0800 111 999. Only use a mobile phone from outside the property.
- Follow the advice given by the emergency advisor.
- Wait outside for a gas engineer to arrive.
- Smoke, light a match or use any other naked flame.
- Turn any electrical switches on or off.
