Swale Heating is supporting Gas Safety Week by giving away free carbon monoxide (CO) monitors.

The south east heating firm is working with Gas Safe Register to make sure members of the public are fully informed about the gas safety message.

However, Swale Heating’s sales director, Matthew Edwards, says giving away the monitors may be one of the most effective ways of protecting customers.

Matthew said: “Members of the public are not always gas safety aware, despite our best efforts. We know from Gas Safe Register’s own survey that many householders are very trusting and that they don’t always understand how important it is to use a registered engineer.

“Giving away CO monitors during Gas Safety Week is a way of encouraging householders to come to a professional, fully registered company and having equipment installed that could save a life.”

The CO monitor will be provided free of charge with any private purchase of a boiler during Gas Safety Week, which runs from September 19-25, 2016.

Swale Heating has also agreed a number of other events with Gas Safe Register, including a social media campaign and a gas safety feature placed in newspapers throughout Kent.
