Gas Fitting

If you are looking for a highly qualified gas fitter in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast or Ipswich, you can call on our team at Abstract Plumbing. We note that everyone on the Abstract Plumbing team that carries out gas fitting work is a licensed gas fitter and we encourage clients to ask to view our license ID or that of anybody you use to undergo your gas fitting work. This is because only licensed gas fitters are permitted to undertake gas-fitting services, with many critical safety points to comply with.

Similarly to the work undertaken by electricians, gas work must be done with utmost care, and it is important that you do not do this yourself. Did you know that gas pressures can be so low, many people are unaware that they have a gas leak in their homes? Apart from the obvious risk to your health and that of your family, you also pay for the constant leak which translates to a needlessly large gas bill.

We specialise in gas repairs such as gas leaks or minor appliance repairs, new gas appliance installations and replacement such as gas cookers, hot water systems, as well as other gas appliances. Our approach to gas fitting is to do an initial inspection and pressure test on the gas installation to determine if the existing installation is compliant and gas tight. There is usually a distinctive gas smell if there is a leak, however due to low pressures in the gas system, we often locate very small leaks that have gone unnoticed for unknown periods of time.

Once the gas fitting work is completed, the installation is tested again and we provide gas certification which also requires an engraved compliance plate which is typically placed in the gas meter or electrical meter box to document that gas fitting had been carried in accordance with the required gas regulations. Copies of the gas certificates are provided to the home owner and sent to the local gas authority or examiner. Although this is the industry standard, we often find that other gas fitters miss these important steps.

If you have any questions regarding your gas fitting needs, or require a quote, please contact the friendly team at Abstract Plumbing on 1800 555 344.
