What A Gas Plumber Can Do For You

What A Gas Plumber Can Do For You


If you had a sore tooth, you would make an appointment to visit the dentist. It’s logical because they specialise in dentistry and keeping your teeth healthy. So when you’re interested in a gas installation for your home or office, you need to call a gas plumber to do the gas installation for you. But they do more than just gas installations.

What Do Gas Plumbers Do?

Anything gas related in your home is installed, maintained and repaired by a gas plumber. Whether you’re getting a gas boiler installed, or a heating alternative for the upcoming winter months, a gas plumber is who you call. They need to be certified to operate in Auckland and work in residential and commercial buildings to provide their much-needed services. The gas installation service provider you employ should be able to detect and repair gas leaks, as well as install burners, regulators, gas metres, valves and boilers.

Is Gas Plumbing The Same As Regular Plumbing?

No. Unfortunately, gas plumbers are asked this quite often. Even worse, they’re also called in to perform regular plumbing tasks like unblock toilets or drains sometimes. In reality, their jobs are not interchangeable, and you won’t be able to call a regular plumber in to inspect your gas systems or vice versa. Gas plumbing is complicated and delicate work. Working with gas can also be hazardous, which is why it’s so crucial that you employ someone who is licensed within the profession to work with your gas systems.

How To Identify A Gas Leak 

Gas leaks are the most common problem you could experience with any gas system after it has been installed. If you keep your gas systems regularly maintained, hopefully, you won’t need these services for many years. However, regardless of maintenance, gas systems break down when they age, which can be the cause of a gas leak. Gas leaks are incredibly dangerous because they don’t always represent a gaseous smell. That means that you could be living with a gas leak without even knowing it. However, there are other signs to look out for, such as the following:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness or confusion
  • Nausea

Gas leaks won’t often occur unless the gas system in your home is very old or hasn’t been maintained for a long time since it’s installation. If you need gas plumbing services or suspect that you have a leak, contact PG Plumbing & Gasfitting today.
