Gas

Carbon monoxide testing should be undertaken at least every two years on any property containing a gas heater.

It is absolutely crucial that any home or business gets tested for carbon monoxide leaks. The fact is that a leak can be difficult to detect, as it does not emit a scent, and carbon dioxide testing can catch, fix and prevent any dangerous leaks. As a leading gas plumber in Melbourne, we understand just how important carbon monoxide testing is, as carbon dioxide poisoning occurs when an individual is knowingly or unknowingly inhaling large quantities of carbon dioxide. Inhalation can happen when the substance is leaked from a defective wall furnace, ducted heating system, or space heater; and wind up resulting in unwanted effects on the human body.

As fully licensed gas experts, our team provide thorough carbon monoxide testing and a range of other gas appliance services in Melbourne. If you need compliance testing, we are able to check your property to ensure it meets compliance standards and provide you with a full compliance report. For all emergencies, we are available 24/7.

Safety is Our Priority

Safety is one of the cornerstones of our business, and our team of fully qualified gas fitters will make sure that your home or business is free of any leaks, and completely safe for you, your family, or your tenants to live and work in.

When we undertake carbon monoxide testing on your property, we’ll provide you with:

  • A carbon monoxide testing report
  • A gas safety certificate

Signs That You May Have a Carbon Monoxide Leak

  • Gas fires may be hard to light or are burning much slower than usual.
  • Gas flames are burning more of an orange or yellow colour, rather than blue.
  • You’re experiencing symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, chest pains and shortness of breath for no apparent reason.
  • Your gas bills are higher than usual.
  • You can smell some kind of unusual gas smell.

How to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

  • Ensure you get regular carbon monoxide testing done. We recommend it every two years at a bare minimum.
  • When you use your gas appliance, ensure that the room is adequately ventilated.
  • If you have chimneys and flues, get them cleaned by a professional.
  • Be aware of what colour the flame in your gas appliances is burning. If orange or yellow, contact us right away.

How Do I Know If I Have A Gas Leak?

Gas is an odourless natural resource. Fortunately, gas suppliers add a chemical into the substance so that it has a strong odour. This smell is distinct and added in, so it is more obvious when gas is leaking or left on accidentally. If you at any time get a hint of the scent of gas, it’s important to check that gas has not been left on.

Some other signs that you have a gas leak and need us to provide you with gas leak detection service in Melbourne, include:

  • Your pilot light is less blue and more orange or yellow
  • Gas appliances are making a hissing or whistling noise
  • Gas pilot light will not stay lit
  • If operating a gas hot water unit, your hot water is not running
  • Gas bills are higher than usual, despite regular use
  • Headaches, nausea, fatigue, breathlessness or confusion. Especially if these symptoms have only occured after running a gas appliance or entering your property
  If you have noticed any of the above indicators of a gas leak, immediately switch off your property’s main gas valve, contact us today for urgent gas leak repair. If you are feeling unsure whether or not you are experiencing symptoms of a gas leak, it is advised that you call us so that we can help you determine this. We offer our 24 hour gas leak detection service in Melbourne so that you can rest easy knowing that your safety is our priority, no matter what time of the day or day of the year.

How Do You Find and Fix a Gas Leak?

Using both our technology and expertise, we first determine whether there is a gas leak in your property by testing your network for drops in pressure. Next we begin to isolate every appliance and length of gas pipe, testing for the source of the inconsistency in pressure. Once located, we resolve the leak. In most cases, a simple repair will suffice, and in others, the gas piping may need to be replaced. Once repair work has been undertaken, your property will be retested to ensure that all gas leaks have been eliminated.

To get a gas leak promptly resolved, contact our friendly team of gas fitting experts today on 03 9498 0458. We’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
