Gas room heaters
Our gas fitting experts from Metropolitan Plumbing can repair, reposition and install heaters as needed. We have experience with all types, makes and models of gas room heaters, and even carry a large rage of spare parts at all times, so we’ve got you covered for any situation.
It is important to have your gas heater looked at immediately if you notice any changes in its performance or should you notice a decline in health of either yourself or your family members either during or after using a gas heater. A faulty gas room heater, a gas heater that does not have the correct ventilation or a gas appliance being used in an incorrect manner, could be producing high levels of carbon monoxide. This is a deadly gas that is odourless and colourless and is otherwise known as the silent killer.
This gas is more harmful to young children, the elderly of those with respiratory issues, but can affect anyone no matter how young or old. If you notice that yourself or your family members begin to experience fatigue, dizziness, headaches, confusion or nausea while using a gas room heater, or shortly afterwards, it is recommended that you turn off the appliance and call a gas fitting expert to arrange a service of your gas appliance.
All gas appliances should be serviced according to their manufacturers warranties, usually once every two years. Metropolitan Plumbing are your gas fitting experts able to service, repair or newly install your gas room heater.
Your gas cooking appliances, such as gas ovens and gas stoves, need to be in good working order to be efficient and effective, and can be very annoying, or even dangerous, if they’re faulty.
When your existing gas oven fails, or you buy yourself a new gas stove, contact Metropolitan Plumbing on 1300 367 333. We’ll be able to have one of our gas plumbers come over and either repair or install and commission your gas oven or stove.
We make sure our experts have the skills, tools, parts and knowhow to work with any and all makes and models of gas ovens and gas stoves, so we can give you only the very best service.
What gases do you work with?
There are primarily two types of gas used to power gas appliances. Our gas plumber is able to work with both of the most common gases used in Australian homes and businesses.
The 2 kinds of gases are the following:
Liquefied petroleum gas
More commonly known by its abbreviation, LPG, this is the gas you might buy from a hardware store or specialised gas retailer.
LPG comes in bottles or large cylinders. It is usually used to fuel gas appliances either when natural gas isn’t used at all in the building or when a natural gas outlet isn’t available where the appliance needs to go.
LPG consists mostly of propane and butane, both of which come from the refining process of petroleum, a naturally occurring flammable liquid. LPG is very handy, but can be expensive to use as a common fuel source for your appliances.
The gas which arrives at your home or business through the underground gas network is known as natural gas. Natural gas is usually used for fueling all of your indoor gas appliances, such as gas stoves and gas heaters and is now also commonly used for your outdoor BBQ’s and even for heating swimming pools.
It’s created as animal and plant matter decomposes, giving off raw gas and collecting in underground caverns over many years; this raw gas is then extracted and refined into what we know as natural gas. Natural gas is much cheaper and more economical than electricity or LPG to run your appliances, but is not always readily available to all areas.
For any and all gas fitting jobs that you need done, including commissioning a gas appliance, the gas fitters at Metropolitan Plumbing are your first port of call. When a gas appliance is installed and attached to a power source by your attending gas fitter, it needs to be checked for safety and functionality. This is called commissioning. This is essential before using any appliance as it looks at things like ventilation, gas pressure and the soundness of gas connections.
All of our gas plumbers will commission every gas appliance they install and supply you with a certificate of compliance, so you can be sure your new appliance works perfectly and is safe to use. If you have an unlicensed gas fitter install your gas appliance, they will not be able to issue you with a certificate of compliance. Not having one of these could void your appliance warranty and pose a health and safety risk to your home, office, employees or loved ones.
