In Australia, any work involving LPG and natural gas must be accomplished by a licensed gas fitter or a legal trainee/apprentice under the supervision of a licensed gas fitter. Product warranty is also not recognised by insurance companies when the installation or repair wasn’t done by licensed gas fitters. Since all gas installation and repair services greatly concern safety, it is immensely important to have licensed gas fitters do the job.
While many gas fitters are also plumbers, not all plumbers are gas fitters. At The Plumbing and Gas Guys, we have tradesmen who are both licensed gas fitters and plumbers capable of getting the job done properly. All of our gas services are accomplished using the proper tools to ensure the quality of our service and most especially the safety of our clients.
All gas installations must be done by a licensed professional not only to make sure that there are no spaces for possible gas leaks but to ensure that the size of the gas line is large enough to accommodate all the gas appliances and systems that shall be connected to the line. If you don’t have an existing gas line or if you are not connected to the main gas line of your city, at The Plumbing and Gas Guys, we can run the gas pipes you need, including connections to the mainline as well as to LPG tanks if needed.
Gas bayonet installations are common especially for portable heaters that are moved around the house as required. At The Plumbing and Gas Guys, we can install gas bayonets in walls and floors to suit your needs provided that there is proper ventilation. In Australia, it is required by law that any room which uses a gas heater must have a low vent and a high vent for ventilation of un-burnt gases.
Faulty appliances can emit dangerous gases, specifically carbon monoxide which is harmful to our health. Gas molecules, when mixed with dust and debris can also catch fire. This is why it is recommended that all gas appliances are to be inspected and serviced every 2 years or depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Other signs that point to immediate inspection and repair include yellow or red flame, soot around the gas appliance, pilot lights that frequently go out, and smelling an acrid scent.
At The Plumbing and Gas Guys, we offer a full range of gas plumbing services including installation, maintenance and repair. We have a team of licensed professionals well-trained in all types of gas plumbing needs including gas pipeline installations, disconnections and safe removals. Some of the most common jobs we do include gas hot water systems, gas bottle, gas flue pipes, gas meters, valves and associated pipework, gas pressure and more.
An ageing pipeline and a burst pipe are some of the most common reasons for a pipeline replacement. Natural occurrences such as the movement of the earth also affect pipelines and cause misalignment. Exposure to water also causes pipelines to corrode, enhancing wear and tear which leads to leaks and possible pipe burst when to replaced immediately.
Gas fittings and gas plumbing should be inspected every two years to avoid safety hazards and accidents caused by ageing pipes, clogging, corrosion, ruptures and more. At The Plumbing and Gas Guys, our gas safety check services include correct installation practices as per specifications and regulations, operational efficiency e.g. the correct burning of gas, and pressure testing of gas lines for leaks.
