Message to all if you smell gas, called National grid 0800 111 999. They usually come out within the hour, it's a free emergency service and if theres a leak, they'll make your house safe. It's something I didn't know before today... In November we had a new boiler, every now & again i thought I could smell gas.
At first I thought that it was because it was new or the smell of the building work. I asked my dad and husband if they smelt it but they said no.
I didn't want to call an engineer out for nothing & look silly or risk a major call out charge when money is tight. Then we got a huge gas bill & my mum said she'd smelt it too. I was supposed to ring the company that installed it to get someone out but kept putting it off as with 2 kids to look after one being 7 weeks old, I barely get time to eat and drink myself.
Feel even sillier now, knowing there is a leak which could have caused a serious incident. The national grid have capped our supply so no heating or hot water till it's fixed and we're supposed to be moving in on Saturday leaving me 1 day to get the gas company to come out whilst having 2 kids to look after! Please have your fingers crossed for me 🤞🤞🤞
