How to Find a Qualified Gas Fitter
Natural gas plays an important part in our daily lives as we use if for cooking, hot water generation, washing clothes and more. Thus, it makes sense that you have a licensed gas fitter to handle any gas-related issues you may have. Attempting to do gas-related maintenance on your own is extremely dangerous. Even hiring an ordinary handyman can put you and your family at risk in your Brisbane area home.
For the safety of homeowners, all Australian states and territories require all gas-related work to be carried out by a licensed contractor. Unlicensed gas work is illegal.
At Intagas, we provide our customers with a complete package of services. Not only do we provide you with full gas-fitter services, we also provide you with gas plumbing and regular plumbing services as well as full installation and maintenance services for your central air conditioning system or heat pump.
Working with natural gas is inherently dangerous. Here is how you can make sure that you have chosen the proper gas fitter for your home.
Ask About Licensing
You are within your full rights to ask to see a tradie’s certification. Certified gas fitters must undergo training on how to handle gas and gas appliances and includes education on installation, disconnection, maintenance and repairs. Be aware that there are different types of licenses such as permit, authorisations or certificates of competency, to make sure that the license is the correct one for your situation. Plumbers aren’t necessarily gas fitters, although some do have full certification. If your plumbing issue involves gas, ensure that your technician can handle both aspects.
Does the Contractor Have Proper Insurance in Place?
An insured and licensed contractor providing gas fitter and gas plumbing services should have the proper insurance to ensure that any damage to your property will be taken care of if an incident occurs, or if an injury occurs in relation to the work performed.
Do online research to determine if the gas fitter really is licensed and to find reputations reviews that show their quality of work. Look for how they responds to problems to determine if your selected company is reliable.
