Gas fitting, just like any specialised field, sometimes uses fancy terms. One of those less explained ones is commissioning. Basically, commissioning is the name given to the process of checking a newly installed gas appliance for safety and functionality. This must be carried out by one of our licensed gasfitters every time an appliance, such as a gas oven or a gas heater, is installed, to make sure that all its parts are working properly and it’s okay to use. At Metropolitan Plumbing, we take our job very seriously, so we’ll commission every gas appliance we install to give you the best, safest experience possible.
Does every kind of gas appliance need to be commissioned?
Yes, every gas appliance will need to be commissioned prior to use. This includes gas BBQs, gas ovens, gas stoves, gas room heaters, gas water heaters, and any other gas-powered appliance. If a gas appliance isn’t commissioned, the unit might not work the way it should, and might even be dangerous. At Metropolitan Plumbing, we’ll never you put in harm’s way, so we make sure every one of our gas fitting experts has undergone the training and experience necessary to be able to commission all gas appliances they install. It doesn’t matter what type, make or model, we’ll be able to install and commission it so it works perfectly and safely.
What do you do when commissioning a gas appliance?
Your attending Metropolitan Plumbing gas fitting expert, after installing your new gas appliance and before you get to use it, will look over every centimetre of the unit to make sure it’s all there, has all been installed properly, and that everything is connected and in perfect working order. Any problems will be fixed, and any faults taken care of. This include: looking at the connections to and from the gas appliances, making they’re sound and not leaking; making sure there’s sufficient ventilation around the appliance; checking that the gas pressure and gas/oxygen combination has been set properly.
