Where do you need gas fitters?
If you are using gas in any form in your home, then you need the services of a licensed gas fitter. For the safety of homeowners all states and territories require all gas related work to be carried out by a licensed contractor. Unlicensed gas work is illegal and may well be unsafe.
Gas fitters will ensure that all appliances and connections are safe to use and do not pose a danger to you. They can also safely and effectively maintain or repair gas appliances. Here’s what you need to know about selecting a gas fitter.
A gas fitter can be defined as a person that installs and services natural gas fixtures and appliances in residential, commercial or industrial areas. As well as installing the fixtures and appliances, they also install related things such as gas meters, regulators, valves, and burners. They also maintain and repair gas equipment or appliances. You often see vans that say that they are plumbing and gas fitting companies but you should be aware that gas fitting is a separate occupation with different training and qualification requirements to plumbing. However, some plumbers do provide gas fitting services including installation, disconnection, maintenance and repair of pipes and fittings used in gas systems.
The gas fitter may perform the following duties as part of their role:
When selecting a gas fitter, it is vital to ensure that they are appropriately qualified and licensed. There are different types of licenses (permits, authorisations, or certificates of competency) so ensure that the license is the correct one for your situation. There is also information about the licensing of gas fitters on Licensedtrades.com.au.
The gas fitter should also provide an emergency service that is available 24/7 in the event of emergencies such as split pipes, leaking gas, and so forth. If you having gas appliances installed or maintained, make sure that you get several quotes on the work. Don’t necessarily choose the cheapest quote as it is more important that you are comfortable and confident with your gas fitter. When it comes to a material as volatile as gas, cheaper is not necessarily better if the work is not done properly.
