Gas Appliance Spares (GAS) has joined forces with Vaillant to highlight the dangers of using counterfeit gas spare parts to customers.

According to GAS, there is increasing concern for public safety due to the rise of counterfeit parts being used for gas appliances in the UK. One of the common issues installers face, the company says, is ensuring quotes are cost-effective while meeting customers’ demands.

This can lead to some installers choosing to use unapproved parts when working on a gas appliance. However, opting to use cheaper alternatives can have alarming consequences; not only contributing damage to boilers, but also causing unnecessary risk to both life and property.

Gas Appliance has joined forces with Vaillant to promote awareness surrounding the safety issues of using counterfeit parts. Together, the companies are holding a trade event in Preston, where they will demonstrate counterfeit spare parts in comparison to genuine ones.

There will also be a raffle with a number of prizes to win including an iPad. All money raised will go to the Cash for Kids Charity which lends a helping hand to disabled and disadvantaged children. Furthermore, the event presents an ideal opportunity to network over beer and wine.

The event takes place on Thursday 30 November and you can drop by between 3pm and 8pm. Call Gas Appliance Spares on 01772 702755 for further information or register your attendance here:
