    Why Natural Gas Is Becoming The Most Common Fuel Source
    For Heating For Sydney Locals



    It’s up to 40% cheaper than electricity to use and up to 50% cheaper to maintain and service with fewer parts. Unlike electricity, where increased consumption drives your tariffs higher, generally the more gas appliances you install the more you can save. This is because in most cases, the cost per unit of the gas decreases as consumption increases.

    How to Locate &
    Isolate Your Gas Meter

    Gas meters are usually within close proximity to the house and easily accessed by the gas meter readers. It is typically near the electricity meter and will most likely be protruding from the ground.

    One you find the meter, there is a lever that is running the same direction as the pipe. Turn this so that it is running perpendicular to the pipe. This stops the flow of gas.

    Once you have isolated your gas meter, it’s time to call the professionals in.

    How Does Gas Heating Work?


    We XXX

    Gas Heating works by tapping into your home’s gas mainline and using this as the primary fuel to generate heat.

    We XXX

    This heat is either generated in a single location such as built-in gas log fires, gas space heaters or distributed evenly throughout your home via a network of ducts in the floor, walls, or ceiling.

    We XXX

    A ducted gas heating system works by passing air over a heat exchanger. This cool air is then warmed through a gas-powered combustion system & then distributed throughout your walls, floor, or ceiling.

    We XXX

    Our gas heating experts will help you choose the location and quantity of vents that pass the warm air into your home and ensure that we have chosen the right capacity gas heater to efficiently heat the room or space.


    Benefits Of Natural Gas

    Gas is a low cost, low carbon, and convenient fuel of choice for Australian consumers when it comes to cooking, hot water, and winter heating. Gas-fired appliances are proven contributors to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and are efficient and responsive.

    Natural gas offers Australians a low-emission alternative to electricity generated from coal. Gas hot water systems provide instant hot water, with up to 83% fewer carbon emissions than electric hot water systems. This figure is on par with the emissions produced by an energy system using 50% renewable energy and 50% coal electricity.

    Gas Compliance Certificate

    Many gas fitters are also plumbers but not all plumbers are gas fitters. In NSW, all Sydney gas fitters are legally required to provide NSW Fair trading with completed copies of both Certificates of Inspection and Certificates of Compliance when any gas works are completed. This is to ensure all gas works are completed to code and more importantly by a licensed gas fitter. This protects you from any problems that may develop later as the gas fitter will be required to fix the defect. you can check out our license here:

    Sydney Gas Leak Testing

    A gas bill that is excessive or inflated compared to the earlier bills or a faint lingering smell is the common indicator that you may need a gas leak detection and repairs service. If you can smell gas, you should call an emergency gas plumber to take care of the problem immediately. Emergency gas leaks must be detected and repaired as soon as you suspect an issue and should never be dismissed or left for a later date.

    If you suspect a gas fault and want to know how to detect for a gas leak before we get to the site, we recommend the soapy water leak test which allows for an easy and often obvious sign of a minor gas leak through soapy bubbles. This test is particularly useful when connecting a new gas barbeque, simply spray around the gas fittings and look out for any bubbles that may start to appear.

    As licensed gas plumbers we can locate minor leaks which are often not visible and can be located underground. You don’t need to worry though, once onsite we will complete a pressure test on the line using a tool called a manometer. This allows us to easily identify first if there is a leak and secondly and more importantly where it is located.

    Do You Have A Gas Leak?

    Why Is My Gas Bill Higher Than Usual?

    If you think you may have been charged incorrectly by your Sydney gas supplier we suggest you do this before wasting your time and calling them. In the evening before going to bed, take a meter reading and then check it again when you get up the next morning prior to turning on the appliances. If the meter reading has changed (showing an increase), it would hint that you may need a gas plumbing professional who can detect the gas leaks and repair it as soon as possible.

    You would be shocked at how many people have a gas leak and leave it unreported.
