If you live in a gas network area, your gas supply will be natural gas otherwise it will be LPG.

Common Gas problems and solutions

Gas faults come in all shapes and sizes. It is important to note that gas can kill, and you should not attempt to fix a gas fault yourself. Use the table below as an identification tool only to help your gas fitter fix the fault. Many Gas fitters will have a set price for fixing certain components.

Our Gas Service

I believe that we differ from most plumbing and gas services, as we design our gas installation with the finished product in mind. I have noticed that this is the best for you to get consistent results regarding getting great functionality and safety from the installation.

We offer up front pricing for all new gas installations. Our basic prices for gas appliance and gas pipework installations can be found using our pricing calculator.

All our installations are tested for gas tightness and operating pressures and then run through a functionality test.

 

Residential Gas Pricing

For all your gas installation pricing, visit our pricing calculator to get a labour cost on your gas installation today.

Generally, when it comes to gas servicing, it can sometimes be hard to narrow down a price without all the information.

For example, the gas fitter may have to strip the gas appliance down to get a part number and then order it in. On the second visit, the gas appliance and the new component can be reassembled and tested.

I have listed some gas installation jobs below with estimated time frames next to each. Obviously, all gas jobs are not the same. Use the list below as a basic guide for a basic job.

Gas Meters – (1Meter of pipe) – 1.5 hours

Hot Water Systems – 3 hours for plumbing and the gas (Replace old with new, external)

Cook Tops – 1.5 hours

Ovens – 1.5 Hours

Pool and Spa Heaters. – Gas Connection and commission only (1Meter of pipe) – 3 Hours

 

Gas Pipework and Gas Appliance Testing

All our gas systems are comprehensively tested through all the stages of installation to ensure that there are no leaks and that the correct pressures are met.

Gas certificates and compliance plates will be provided to you once the work is complete.
