Have you ever been unsure at what stage you should call for a professional plumber or gas fitter? Leaving problems with your gas plumbing (and other systems) too long may lead to damage and expenses that could all have been prevented if you had taken earlier action. To know when to employ a gas fitter Melbourne residents can use this informative guideline to understand which scenarios require a gas fitter on your premises as soon as possible.
Repairs on Gas Appliances Can Be Dangerous
If one of your commercial gas appliances is giving problems, don’t try and handle it on your own. Gas is simply too dangerous to take chances with. No matter how serious you think the problem is, call an expert to handle the situation. Gas is dangerous and needs to be handled by trained professionals. If you continue using a problematic gas system, you run the risk of endangering people and your property.
Think You Smell Gas?
Gas itself doesn’t have an odour but manufacturers add a signature smell to the gas to make it detectable by nose. This makes it easy to identify leaking gas, but you need to stay vigilant and instruct everyone in your home to take note of smells around the house. The moment you pick up that odour, turn off the gas supply and call your gas fitter immediately.
If you suspect that your gas plumbing system has a leak or isn’t working as efficiently as usual, a good way to check for leaks is to take gas meter readings. Find the gas meter on your property and take the reading of the current usage, instruct all occupants on the property not to use any gas appliances for a period of time and then come back to check the reading on the gas meter after the period elapses. If the number has gone up after no gas systems have been used, this is a sign there could be a gas leak on the property.
Smaller Flames on Your Appliances
Another tell-tale sign of a gas problem is when the burner on your stove doesn’t produce the same size flame as usual. A smaller flame could mean that the gas is leaking somewhere instead of being channelled to where it should go.
