Crown Boiler gas heaters require annual maintenance unless a problem occurs demanding interim service. Consumers are not qualified to work on any of the systems related to gas boilers. If the homeowner suspects a gas leak, emergency protocols include evacuating the building without touching any appliance, electrical switch or phone. Once out of the building, contacting the gas supplier or fire department from a neighbor's phone is required.
