Looking for an experienced Gas Fitter in Brisbane?

If you are using gas in any form in your home, looking for a gas installation, or require servicing or repairs to gas appliances and fittings then you need the services of a licensed gas fitter.

Why choose gas?
It is easy to see why more Australians are choosing gas to power their home. Gas can be more economical than other fuel options and furthermore, it emits fewer greenhouse gases.
Furthermore, gas appliances like space heaters are usually more efficient than their electric counterparts, and gas stovetops tend to warm up much more quickly than electrical ones. In the long run, gas running costs are generally cheaper than electricity, and will gas connections and appliances will most likely save you money in the long term.
Factors to consider with gas
When thinking about adding a gas connection to your home, there are several factors to consider, and our experienced gas fitters Brisbane can help to advise and assist with this. First, you will need to find out whether your house already has a gas connection.
Should you need to add a connection the cost will depend on several factors including the complexity of the job, which will vary from home to home. Of course, you may consider LPG as an alternative to a natural gas connection.
You will also need to take into account that, whilst gas usually saves you money in the long run, gas appliances generally cost more to purchase than electrical ones.
It is also important to be aware of the health and safety risks involved with gas. Once again, our experienced gas fitters Brisbane will be happy to advise you on this.
Home installation of bottle or natural gas
When you are considering home installation of bottle or natural gas, you will need a gas fitter. We can help you to get your gas system up and running, and most importantly ensure that it is safe.
Gas hot water systems
We can also install your gas hot water system for you, whether you are adding a new system to a new build, repairing, replacing, or upgrading.
Gas hot water systems can run off either the gas mains or an LPG gas tank. They are generally fairly energy efficient, and even more efficient than solar systems that are boosted by non-renewable electricity. Whilst they usually cost more to purchase and install than electric systems, the running costs are generally lower.
Gas hot water systems use a gas burner to heat up water to the required temperature. There are two types of gas hot water systems: storage tank and continuous flow. Storage tank systems consist of a steel cylinder with a gas burner at the bottom. They heat up the water in advance so that you have a certain amount of hot water ready to use.
Continuous flow systems are tankless, and they heat the water as it flows through a heat exchanger, providing a continuous supply of hot water.
The installation and repair of a gas hot water system may require the expertise of both a plumber and a gas fitter Brisbane. Whilst both types of tradesman receive different training, our plumbers are highly trained and experienced in both.
Gas appliance connection and servicing
We can also assist with the installation of all kinds of gas appliances including gas ovens, stoves, cooktops, BBQs, and heaters. Once we have installed your gas appliances, we thoroughly recommend gas appliance servicing once every two years at a minimum. Appliances that are over ten years old should be serviced at least once every year.
This helps you to ensure that your gas appliances are running properly and efficiently, and to maintain the safe use of the gas heaters and appliances.
If our gas appliance servicing uncovers any issues, we will repair them where possible. Depending on the problem we may need to take it away to do this. However, we fully understand how much you need your gas heater and appliances, so we will carry out the work as efficiently as possible.

We carry out gas tests using special gas detection tools, which detect any pressure drops in the gas line. This indicates that there is a leak. By testing different areas of the line one at a time, we can also determine where the leak is located.
The importance of tending to gas leaks quickly cannot be understated, and we understand this. We will always respond to your call efficiently, and check the premises for gas leaks. We will only give you the all-clear if we are 100% sure that there is no leak.
