However, there is one thing that should be done once a year, something that not everybody remembers to do: Get the gas fire serviced by a gas-safe engineer. There are multiple reasons to get your gas fire serviced by a gas-safe engineer: –It prevents problems with your gas fire: Having a gas fire serviced helps prevent problems such as the fire not lighting, as the gas-safe engineer will check the fire for faulty or non-responsive parts. If there are any parts that need replacing they can be found before they cause more problems. –It keeps your warranty valid: All new gas fires have a warranty, the amount of time the warranty covers varies by manufacturers. All warranties over 12 months are subject to the fire being serviced by a gas-safe engineer once a year. If the fire is not serviced then after it has been installed for over 12 months the warranty ends. All warranties have this condition, and others only cover certain parts or situations. It is a good idea to always check the terms of a manufacturers warranty.

Whistling: Whistling is a result of the air needed for combustion entering the stove through restricted airways and across sharp or angular edges. It is usually caused by high flue draughts above 20 pa. With a flue draw above 30 pa the whistling (if it occurs) can be quite loud, this can be resolved with the installation of a flue dampener or flue stabiliser. Whistling is also more common on stoves with tertiary air inlets. Increased flue draught (above 20 pa) can also reduce the overall efficiency of the stove by around 3-4%, and result in a more rapid consumption of fuel together with a decrease in the heat output to the...
