It’s National Gas Safety Week

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Nationa Gas Safety Week (NGSW) is nearly opon us.
This national event aims to raise awareness and safety across the country.  This year NGSW aims to raise awareness of gas safe in rented properties.  Landlords have a legal responsibility to have a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate for every property they let and this needs to be renewed annually and on time. It's estimated that a 5th of rented properties do not have a Landlord Gas Safety certificate in place, usually because renewals are delayed, leaving a gap where the property is not properly covered.

In Bath, we rarely see this problem but it does come to light every so often.  Recently we attended a property in Newbridge to discover that the Safety certificate was two years out of date and worse still the boiler was in a bad state of repair and had to be switched off immediately.  Thankfully this does not happen often but when it does Ace Energy act immediately to ensure the safety of the user. 

Gas Explosion in Sunderland

Friday, August 11, 2017

Dreadful scenes coming out of the North East today after a gas explosion has reduced a semi-detached house to rubble.  Neighbouring houses were aslo destroyed along with several cars parked in the street, after a neighbours descrived a bomb like sound, heard early on Friday morning (11th August)

It's difficult to image to anyone could have survived this but the tenant was saved as a fridge fell on top of her, sheilding her from further injury.  She is in hosipital in a stable but serious condition.

It's early stages and too early to speculate why it was such a large gas explosion in a domestic property.

Install a Nest

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

A big success story for Ace Energy Plumbing & Heating of Bath has been the partnership we have with the revolutionary Nest Learning Thermostat.

Since training to be a Nest Pro Installer Ace of Bath have risen high in the opinion of those domestic customers who have chosen to install the Nest. The thermostat cleverly learns what temperature you would like your house, when you want the heat turned up or down and when you are out of the house! It does this by monitoring your pattern of living over a two week period and then programs heating to match.

More great feedback!
