Do you have a gas heating system? It is important to get your heater serviced regularly to ensure it is working safely and efficiently. As the weather turns cooler, it is a good idea to book in for a complete gas heating service to make sure your family stays warm this winter.

 

Why Get A Service?

A gas heater can run on a variety of gases including carbon dioxide. When working correctly, there is no risk of this gas causing any health complaints to people in the building. However, a faulty gas heater can leak CO2 or emit carbon monoxide and be a danger to those who come into contact with the toxic air. Regular services decrease the chances of leaks which can lead to fires or the build-up of pollution which can be dangerous to individuals in the vicinity.

 

Service Before Repair

Even if your gas heater appears to be working without any issues, we recommend you book in for a system service. We believe that pre-emptive services are better than repairs. Don’t wait until your heating systems breaks and leaves you and other building users chilled. It is more cost effective to complete smaller maintenance tasks on a gas heating system than to repair larger problem which develops after years of neglect. It is also quicker to repair small issues as they arise rather than undergo larger, lengthier repairs. Ensuring your system is in good working order guarantees you are able to keep your building warm this winter.

 

Do You Need A Service?

We recommend everyone gets a service on their gas heater regularly, irrespective of whether or not there are symptoms of a problem. However, if you see any of the following signs, you should call for a service immediately:

  • Pilot light frequently going out
  • Pilot light popping or banging when you light the heater
