Every year Energy Safe Victoria run a campaign to warn against the risks of gas heaters. Appropriately coined “Cold Feet”, the campaign aims to raise awareness surrounding the importance of servicing your gas heater.

If gas heaters are faulty or are not serviced, they can leak carbon monoxide – a scentless lethal gas that can only be detected with a special Carbon Monoxide sensing device. The suggested servicing timeframe is at least once every two years for your heater, by a certified and licenced Gasfitter.
As an additional step towards securing the safety of your home, we highly recommend installing a Carbon Monoxide sensor. No bigger than your existing smoke alarm, the carbon monoxide sensor is a great (and virtually maintenance free) way to keep your feet warm – all winter.
These low profile Monoxide sensors are either battery operated, or supplied via a 240V supply, the latter being highly recommended.
Contact us for a free quote, or even just to ask a few questions. We would be happy to assist you as best we can. In the space of a short visit, we can assess the best location for your Carbon Monoxide sensors, given the predicted airflow of the room in question, and the location of any sleeping areas in the house in relation to the heater/s in question.
And last of all, we can highly recommend a plumber local to you, if you would also like to have your heater tested.
