    got to say i am terrified of any gas because of the explosive nature and the death's caused by undetected leaking gas. all my flats in uk are 100% electric, although i realise you can have fires caused by electric failures usually caused by old, or faulty wiring, but the damage always seems to be limited by comparison with gas

    you are quite right but i personally am terrified of any gas, even though i know first class installation and maintenance minimises danger but the consequences of an oversight is far greater than with electric

    Yet both can demolish a building

    Gas shouldn't rise above 10cm in any installation but can do in incorrect installations

    So i guess you are correct
