How to save natural gas
Discover Nedgia’s advice for saving natural gas in your home. Control your spending on energy by making good use of natural gas and keeping your installation in good condition.
Put your installation in the hands of professionals
Only an authorised installation company can install or amend a gas installation.
If you find any anomalies on the natural gas equipment or installation, call out the equipment manufacturer’s technical service, or an authorised installation company, to correct it as soon as possible.
Pay attention to your installation
If the flame is in a good state (blue and stable), this indicates good combustion. Avoid burners going out during cooking.
If smoke from the flame stains your cooking pots, call a service technician from the equipment manufacturer, as it is a sign of poor combustion.
Monitor the state of the equipment’s flexible tubing and ask the installers to use high-safety tubes that comply with the current regulation.
Keep the installation updated
According to the current legislation, you are responsible for the maintenance of your installation and the safe use of it and any gas equipment.
The distribution company should make regular inspections of the gas installations and the user should allow access for inspections to be carried out.
Make sure you fully understand what the regular inspections consist of.
Keep adequate ventilation
Ventilation grates should be kept in perfect condition. Don’t obstruct them under any circumstances.
If you glaze your terrace, don’t forget to tell the workers that they have to open the ventilation grates.
The gas escape tube is vital for your equipment to work properly. Make sure a specialist installs it for you, in compliance with the regulations.
For prolonged absences
If you have to be away for a long time (longer than two days) close the shut-off valve for your house.
