All of these are by local HETAS installers,none of them have been corrected by the installers.None of the above are safe to use. All of them are still in use. HETAS, building control and Avon fire service have been informed and are not able to act on this information, unless the home owner makes a formal complaint. As the law stands the homeowner will be personally and wholly liable for any consequent damage and injury as per the occupiers liability act 1957/1984.
