At Plumb Bros. we have fully qualified gas technicians should you ever encounter a situation where you can either small gas, have a gas leak or if ATCO have isolated your mains due to a leak. Finding a gas leak can be a time-consuming procedure, due to the fact we cannot physically see the leak we can-not give a time-frame on how long the leak will take to find. Therefore, we charge our standard rates when dealing with gas leaks unless stated otherwise.
Gas Leak Procedure
On rare occasions where the gas line is not accessible to cap off and test or on occasions where it would not be cost effective to locate and repair the leak, we will advise the owner of the most cost-effective solution and quote accordingly. Should this be the case, the client will always be notified prior to proceeding with any works.
Gas heaters are great for keeping warm, but they can be deadly if not maintained properly.
If gas heaters are faulty or poorly maintained, they can leak carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide can be lethal as it can’t be seen and has no smell. It can cause death or chronic illness.
Carbon monoxide poisoning can happen in any home or building with gas heating appliances, including newer ones.
Keep your family safe this winter by arranging a gas heater service today with your local plumber/ gasfitter. Before you book, ask the gasfitter if they have the right equipment to test for carbon monoxide leakage.
Responsibilities for Landlords
Plumb Bros. is a fully qualified company with gas servicing credentials, so we can fully service any portable space heater.
Should a client have an old run down in-built space heater which they want to swap over for a portable space heater, we can install safe bayonet points with regulatory high and low vents, so clients can safely enjoy the heat.
Standard Gas Bayonet Install = $450+
NOTE: Any non-standard bayonet installs such as a two-story house or should the client want the gas line chased in an internal wall then this will be quoted from a site visit.
