The service life of a gas stove should not exceed 10-12 years.
Since the beginning of the year, residents of more than 143 thousand apartments in the capital have replaced gas stoves. That’s almost 70 percent of those who had to upgrade their equipment this year. This was reported in the capital’s urban complex.
The service life of a gas stove should not exceed 10-12 years. It is important to use cookers with an automatic gas control system. Thanks to it, the gas supply stops when the flame in the burner goes out.
Experts remind that the equipment can only be used for its intended purpose. The stove is needed for cooking, and the gas water heater is needed for heating water. When using the stove, it is necessary to monitor the color of the flame: if it is orange and blue color does not return even after airing the room, then it’s time to contact a specialist.
Flexible eyeliner also requires attention. It should not come into contact with electrical appliances, be unduly stretched or twisted.
Leaving home for a long time, you need to shut off the gas supply using a valve located on the pipe.
Every year, specialists of the gas economy of the capital conduct scheduled inspections of equipment in the gasified housing stock. Particular attention is paid to the condition of the in-house gas pipeline and gas appliances installed directly in the apartments. The revealed violations are promptly eliminated.
Before letting the gasman into the house, you should pay attention to his uniform, which should be dark blue with reflective stripes, an orange yoke and a service logo on the back. The employee must have a Mosgaz certificate and all personal protective equipment with him in accordance with the recommendations of Rospotrebnadzor.
