Shared flue systems
If you own or manage properties made up of multiple dwellings, the chances are you’ll be legally responsible for the maintenance and safety of shared flue systems.
Typically found in high-rise buildings, but installed in some low-rise properties, too, these systems avoid the need for outside flues or chimneys for every single apartment or flat in a residential block. They provide combustion air to gas appliances such as boilers, water heaters and gas fires, and allow the products of combustion - for example, the toxic gas, carbon monoxide - to be taken away safely.
Failure to maintain a shared flue system properly can lead to unsafe gas appliances - and, in the worst cases, death.
