When buying a gas appliance, deal with a reputable outlet and check that the appliance carries the CE mark. (Confirmation that the Appliance is suitable for use in Ireland). Again your installer should be competent and issue you with a 'Conformance Declaration' for the new appliance installed. Keep the declaration certificate in a safe place.
Every new appliance is supplied with a full instruction book, essential to the correct and safe use of the appliance. Insist that the installer gives you your instruction book. Read it carefully and get to know your appliance. Keep the instructions handy. If you are moving house leave the instruction book for any appliance you are not taking with you. (Contact your appliance supplier if you need a replacement instruction book).
