Gas Safety FAQs

What should I do if I smell gas at home?

  • Ensure all gas appliances are switched off
  • Don't smoke or use a naked flame
  • Don't switch anything electrical on or off. E.g. doorbells, switches or appliances
  • Open windows and doors to let the gas disperse
  • Check your appliances to see if the gas has been left on without being lit

If you've taken all these precautions and you still smell gas, you should turn off the gas at the meter and call the Bord Gáis 24-hour emergency number 1850 20 50 50.
