In order for the ventilation system of the gas installation to be adequate, it is important to check the grids and the outlet pipes. They should not accumulate dust or be clogged. For this it is advisable to maintain a good cleaning and ventilate the house usually.
What is the optimum flame quality of a gas installation?
When you are in the kitchen, it is interesting that you observe the quality of the flame at the moment when the gas burns:
