Today I came across a boiler that had not been checked or serviced for a few years. Take a look at the photo below

Always get your gas appliances checked as this flue was not connected to the boiler, making this boiler very dangerous! It’s absolutely essential that your flue is sealed properly on both sides.

What is a Boiler Flue?

A boiler flue is a pipe that should be attached to all gas boilers, the pipe, which allows waste gases produced during the heating process to safely leave the building.

The gases that the boiler flue disperses out this pipe is very harmful. Including Carbon monoxide and we should know how harmful that is by now?

If ever you suspect your boiler is not working or the flue is not connected – you need to contact your nearest plumber in your area.

Stay safe!
