Christmas is a cosy holiday, but all that time indoors can cause problems and concerns. Stuffy rooms heated by gas appliances, worries about illness and headaches, brought on by stress or other factors…
At our #GasSafeXmas we’re talking about your Christmas concerns and highlighting one you need to be aware of: carbon monoxide poisoning.
Research by @GasSafeRegister shows that one of the things people are most worried about is catching flu, but did you know the symptoms of CO poisoning mimic those of flu? And December has been found to be the most dangerous month for unsafe gas appliances.
The Twitter chat is sponsored by Gas Safe Register, which exists to protect you, your family and your property from unsafe gas work. Look for the yellow triangle, which shows you’re using a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Come share your thoughts, concerns and stories!
Tweet on Thursday 1 December from 13:00 – 14:00 GMT.
The winner will receive a voucher worth £100 for family days out, and 30 runners up will receive a carbon monoxide alarm just for taking part!
