Gas Plumbing FAQs
What should I do when gas leaks are present in my house?
If you believe there is a gas leak at your property, we suggest you turn off the isolation valve at the gas meter. This will stop the flow of gas entering your property and will eliminate any further risk to yourself or your family.
Examples of a possible gas leak may be: Smell of gas, Insufficient flame on your gas appliances, hot water heater not heating correctly or shutting off. Call a plumber immediately to discuss the repairs and under no circumstance undertake the work yourself as you need to be trained and licensed.
If there is a gas leak in your house because, for example you can smell gas in the house or have noticed a shallow flame on the stove or cooler hot water, you must have your gas lines checked immediately by a qualified and licenced plumber in Melbourne.
How much do gas leaks cost to fix in Melbourne?
The cost to repair a gas leak depends on the severity of the gas leak. If an appliance relying on gas is faulty, then the cost will involve a new appliance and installation. If the gas lines are in disrepair, this will involve replacing pipes and making sure all changes are in accordance with plumbing standards.
How do you detect a gas leak?
You can detect a gas leak by:
- Smell – if there is a somewhat rotten egg or sulfuric smell;
- Listen – a slight hissing sound coming from appliances or pipes that use gas;
- Sight – if the flame from your stove is orange or yellow instead of blue; and
- Touch – if there is cooler water coming out of your hot water system.
What are the signs of a gas leak in your home?
The signs of a gas leak in your home can be identified by smell, listening, sight and touch. Even if you are not sure whether you have a gas leak but believe that the gas appliances or gas lines might be compromised, engage a plumber immediately before the matter becomes worse.
What steps will plumber take if my gas stove is leaking?
A plumber will inspect and assess the gas stove leak. The plumber will then isolate the location of the leak and ensure that no more gas is flowing through the pipes and the appliance. The faulty part or entire appliance will then be repaired or replaced. Gas will be restored to all of the appliances and tested for future use.
How much does a gas installation cost?
The cost of a gas line installation at your home depends on whether the property is new or existing. New gas lines can range between $2,500 and $7,000 depending on the size of the property. Replacing existing gas lines can cost more than the new gas line installation because existing plaster will need to be removed and pipework modified.
While saying this, replacing existing gas lines is very rare as they last a long time, unless you live in an old home where there may be old galvanised pipes. Galvanised pipes tend to rust out which cause leaks. This system is now mostly obsolete for new installs.
What does a gas leak smell like?
A gas leak has an unpleasant odour that should not be sniffed. If the smell is like rotten eggs or a type of sulphuric vapour, engage a plumber immediately and ensure you do not inhale toxic fumes. Please read below:
While natural gas is considered the safest and cleanest fossil fuel for domestic and industrial use, there are inherent dangers to remember. Natural gas is non-toxic (non-poisonous), but can cause death by suffocation if the gas displaces the air in a confined space.
Can the gas leak make me sick?
Yes. Avoid smelling gas and ensure that all occupants (including pets) are asked to vacate the building. Ensure no naked flames (candles, matches, etc.) are lit next to an appliance or pipe that is leaking gas.
What additional services can your gas fitter provide?
In addition to repairing gas lines and gas appliances, gas fitters can provide a FREE safety plumbing inspection on the property, install new gas lines and appliances, provide advice on heating equipment and assist with new builds.
What causes gas leakage?
Gas leaks can occur because your gas appliances become faulty over time due to use, the pipes have been poorly installed, or damage has occurred to the appliance or pipe. If your appliances and gas lines were installed correctly, and you use your appliance appropriately and maintain them well, there should rarely be an issue.
