The Importance Of Maintaining Your Gas Appliances

Gas appliances are becoming more and more common in homes today. They are a great way to cook your food and keep your hot water warm. As with any appliance, regular maintenance and servicing is an essential part of keeping your home safe and efficient.

gas appliance maintenanceOver time dirt, dust and other debris can build up on the internal parts of the appliances, reducing their efficiency and causing them to work harder. Regular maintenance can help to prolong the life of your gas appliances. By having a technician check and service your appliances on a regular basis, you can catch small issues before they become bigger problems. This can help to prevent costly repairs or replacements and ensure that your appliances continue to operate smoothly for many years to come. Appliances running at their best can save you money on your energy bills in the long run.

What can I expect from a service?

During a service, the technician will check all the components of the appliance and make any necessary repairs or adjustments. They will also check for any signs of wear and tear and make sure that the gas is being supplied at the correct pressure, which will help to reduce the risk of a gas leak. The technician will also inspect the ventilation system to ensure that it is working properly.

What if I have a gas leak?

Gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning can be extremely dangerous and should be addressed immediately. It is important to check for any signs of a gas leak such as a strong smell of gas, or a whistling or hissing sound. Gas leaks can occur when gas appliances are not properly maintained. If you suspect a gas leak, the first thing you should do is shut off the gas supply to the appliance and open all the windows and doors to ventilate the area. Once the area is ventilated, you should contact a licensed gas technician to inspect the appliance and make any necessary repairs. It is important to remember that gas leaks should always be handled by a trained professional.

  • Fantastic Plumbing lived up to their name. On time, polite, reliable and created confidence in explaining details of my hot water system to one of those husbands who missed the handyman gifts!

    Ian Bridger, Byron

  • Our hot water system was being unpredictable and unreliable, and we weren't sure what the issue was... Conor had it sorted in no time. He was responsive, efficient and helpful - even in the midst of the pre-Splendour rush... We are now enjoying lovely hot water. Thank you!!

    Jacky Morris, Suffolk Park

  • When we recently had a pipe blockage in our investment property in Ballina and our tenant sent us photos we were organizing the fix from NZ. Thankfully we contacted Fantastic Plumbing who located the blockage, jetted it until the pipe was cleared and …. CLEANED UP!!! We were in the process of trying to get a cleaner to the property when Conor sent us photos of the completed work. After speaking to out tenant who couldn’t be happier we saved on the cleaner! If you want no hassels in plumbing do yourself a favour and call Fantastic Plumbing.
