Gas leaks have the potential to cause instant disaster while boiler leaks may be a warning that something is wrong in your system.

There are two types of gas leaks that can happen in a gas-fired boiler. In the first kind of leak, the gas used to fuel the boiler may find its way out of the system due to a malfunctioning valve or a broken pipe. These gases are highly flammable and in the presence of an open flame or spark can cause a serious explosion. Secondly, carbon monoxide can also leak from your boiler and while it may not be as explosive as LPG or natural gas, it’s quite deadly too. Carbon monoxide has no smell and can cause asphyxiation. It has been dubbed the silent killer because it’s usually not detected when it leaks and in case this happens when people are sleeping or unable to notice the signs, it will cause death.

Boiler leaks may not pose an immediate danger and may, in fact be totally harmless. However, when water or steam leaks from an unusual part of the boiler, it could be a warning that the temperature settings are wrong or that there’s a crack/damage and such weak spots may not be able to withstand the pressure inside the boiler for long.
