servicing of gas appliances

We recommend that all gas appliances are serviced annually, especially when they are in high use situations. Servicing should take place no less than every two years. This is consistent with the recommendations of most manufacturers.

We offer a servicing plan for all appliances that we have installed. Our service includes the checking of all safety devices, the ignition system, gas pressures, thermostats, and flues (where applicable). We will check that your appliance is running safely and well at the same time as giving it a good clean to remove any dust, dirt and soot.

gasfitting
certification

It is a legal requirement for us to issue a gasfitting certificate for all gasfitting jobs that we undertake. This gives our customers verification that the work which we have carried out is lawful and compliant. These certificates are sent to our customers for their records and are also stored by our company for a period of seven years. There are different classifications of risk for gasfitting certificates. 

  • Low-risk / General
    The charge for a gasfitting certificate for such work is $50.00
    (e.g., replacement of a gas appliance, this is sometimes referred to as like-for-like gasfitting)
  • High-risk
    The charge for a gasfitting certificate for such work is $80.00
    (e.g., an addition or alteration to an existing installation)

payment

Our payment terms are strictly 7 days from the date of our invoice, unless specifically agreed to the contrary with company management prior to the commencement of the job. 

Direct deposit (internet banking) is our preferred method of payment. If you would like to pay by debit or credit card, please call our freephone number. Alternatively, you can come into our office and pay via eftpos.
