Gas Safety Checks in Melbourne

Gas Safety Check for Landlords. Keeping Melbourne, Victoria Rental Properties Safe, Compliant and Functional

Gas Line Testing

We test gas lines to make sure there are no leaks or broken gas pipes. These include wrong gauges and other safety hazards related to main gas lines. Our gas safety checks are completely thorough.

Negative Pressure Testing

Negative pressure is when the airflow from indoors ‘through’ the appliance to the outdoors is too weak. This results in airflow (now with CO) moving ‘backwards’ and spilling indoors. Our job with gas safety checks is to normalize the pressure by fixing gas appliances emitting carbon monoxide.

Carbon Monoxide testing

We measure the carbon monoxide output of appliances and gas lines for safety. Avoiding exposure is easy, but our job is to fix the CO leak to ensure safety.

Gas Appliance Testing

After testing the main lines and indoor air quality, we do gas safety checks on every gas appliance. We ensure that they are in working order. We service gas appliances including gas components, furnaces, gas heaters, stovetop burners, outdoor gas appliances, etc.

Michael arrived on time and was able to quickly fix the ignition switches on my gas cooker without a problem. So happy that they're working again! I have his number on speed-dial in case I need him again. There are very few technicians who can service a gas Lofra stove now as the company has closed down. Thanks Michael!

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of gas safety checks in Melbourne varies due to the extent of gas testing (number of gas appliances) and gas servicing (required for rental gas safety inspections). It’s imperative that these are performed by qualified gas Type-A servicing technicians. The cost of gas safety checks range generally varies from $250-400 per inspection. 

To pass a gas safety certificate inspection during gas safety checks, follow these steps:

Hire a Licensed Gasfitter: Ensure a licensed and qualified gasfitter conducts the inspection and gas safety checks. They have the expertise to assess and certify your gas system.

Prepare for Inspection: Make sure all gas appliances are accessible and in good working order. Clear any clutter or obstructions around them so they can perform gas safety checks safely.

Maintain Documentation: Keep records of gas appliance installations, maintenance, and repairs. This documentation may be needed during the inspection and gas safety checks.

Check for Leaks: The gasfitter will check for gas leaks. Address any leaks promptly before the inspection and gas safety checks.

Ventilation: Ensure there is adequate ventilation for gas appliances to function safely.

Compliance with Standards: Ensure that all gas appliances and installations meet relevant safety standards and regulations for gas safety checks.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms: If required by local regulations, have carbon monoxide alarms installed and in working condition.

Cooperate During Inspection: Be present during the inspection and cooperate with the gasfitter’s instructions during the gas safety checks.

Follow Recommendations: If the gasfitter identifies issues, follow their recommendations for repairs or improvements found during the gas safety checks.

Receive Certification: If your gas system passes the inspection, you will receive a gas safety certificate. Keep this document for your records.

Remember that safety is paramount when it comes to gas appliances. Regular maintenance and inspections through gas safety checks help ensure the safe operation of your gas system and appliances.

In the state of Victoria and the city of Melbourne, residents are required to have gas safety checks and complete rental safety checks every one to two years. Call us today to inquire about your next gas safety checks schedules.
