Gas appliances (such as cookers, barbecues and hot water systems) are approved devices. Gas appliances must be installed and used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
When buying a gas appliance, look for safety features such as:
- A national gas device approval badge.
- Flame failure devices, which cut off the gas if the flame is accidentally extinguished.
- Automatic reignition, which allows the appliance to relight itself if the flame is accidentally extinguished.
