Listen to your house before it breaks!

From mysterious cracks in the wall to suspicious sooty black marks, three quarters of UK homeowners are currently perturbed by a ‘niggling feeling’ about something in their house or flat that they’ve not got around to fixing.

But failing to address early warning signs of something more sinister has already left UK (owner-owned) households out of pocket to the tune of approximately £17 billion.

When quizzed on gas safety, only a third of homeowners say they know what to do when faced with gas appliance problems, according to new research by Gas Safe Register. Similarly, just a third were aware that not having gas appliances serviced annually can result in house fires.

Ros spoke to Bob Kerr, gas services director at Gas Safety Register.
