Gas is an incredible fuel source and in domestic scenarios, gas plumbing is frequently available for many common uses, such as…

In the Kitchen

Gas cooking is superior in comparison to electric. It delivers immediate heat that is consistent and reliable. There is a reason why you will never see a commercial kitchen with electric cooking equipment.

BBQs

Did you know your BBQ can be connected to your natural gas supply?

Not many people do, however, it means that you never have to worry about running out of bottled gas. Gas also eliminates the need for coal and charcoal.

Heating

Gas heating is very efficient, as well as being easy on the wallet. Using very little electricity, most modern gas heating appliances come with an excellent energy rating. This means that not only does gas save you money, it is also better for the environment.

Gas Hot Water

Gas hot water heaters are fast and constant. They’re available in storage heaters and instantaneous heaters, and they will often use a combination of fuel sources. For example: Gas/Solar, Gas/Electric, Gas/Heat Pump, Gas/Hydronic Heating source combos. There are many different ones to choose from, so be sure to contact us so we can best advise you on your selections.

Pool Heating

If you like to swim all year, then gas pool heating may be the best option for you. While the sun is not always available year-round, gas is. This means your pool will be warm on demand. Pool heaters are also available in multiple combinations, like in the gas hot water examples above.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to do if there’s a gas leak?

Gas is highly flammable, and gas leaks are an extreme potential danger. Leaks can also lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. Signs of a gas leak do not always have a smell, but sometimes the smell may be similar to sulphur or rotten eggs. Other signs include hissing sounds near a gas line, white dust or clouds near the gas line, bubbles in the water and dead houseplants. Gas bills may also be higher than usual. You will likely have breathing difficulties and may experience flu-like symptoms. If there is a gas leak, evacuate the house immediately. Leave the doors open and call 000. Do not make a call from within the house, as this action could ignite the gas. NEVER attempt to repair the leak yourself or allow the situation to go unreported.

Can I get gas to my property?

A licensed plumber can visit your property and determine how gas will be connected to your property. A plumber will also determine if the site has any special conditions and what the next steps would be. To connect gas to your property, there needs to be no unobstructed access between the location of the gas metre and the direct line to the street. You may also be asked to remove shrubs or break concrete in order to connect gas to your property.

What’s the best gas heater?

A flued gas heater or an electric gas heater are among the best types of gas heaters to purchase. Flued gas heaters are more cost effective and are ideal for heating larger spaces. Flued gas heaters vent harmful chemicals, such as carbon monoxide, outside of the home through a chimney. Flued gas heaters are also unlikely to cause condensation, which creates mould. The air pollutants and water vapour escape the house and ensure higher safety with flued gas heaters. Electric gas heaters are the cheaper option. They create no air pollution or chemicals within the house, and are ideal for heating smaller spaces.

Is gas heating bad for you?

If installed correctly and maintained regularly, gas heating is not harmful to your health. Although, the most common problems affecting your health would be faulty gas heaters that emit carbon monoxide and other harmful chemicals directly into your home. This is mostly the case with unflued gas heaters. Carbon monoxide is colourless and odourless, so it is very difficult to detect without a system. To ensure safety, consider purchasing a carbon monoxide alarm and having a licensed plumber install and maintain your gas heater. Gas heaters should be serviced minimum every two years. Flued gas heaters are safe, and will not cause harm if there is proper ventilation and installed professionally.

To find out more contact Scott at FXD Plumbing Sydney Inner West or Call Now on 0428 795 498.

Do flued gas heaters cause condensation?

Flued gas heaters are unlikely to cause condensation. This is because air pollutants and water vapour are vented outside of the house through a chimney. Unflued gas heaters are more likely to cause condensation. Unflued gas heaters produce CO2, and when combined with water vapour in the air, causes condensation. The condensation cause from unflued gas heaters can produce mould. The mould then grows from the unvented chemicals in the air. While unflued gas heaters cause condensation, flued gas heaters are highly unlikely.

Are unflued gas heaters safe?

Unflued gas heaters are much less safe than flued gas heaters. Unflued gas heaters vent air pollutants and water vapour directly into the home. This increases exposure to carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. Both of these chemicals are very difficult to detect and can cause severe health issues. The safer option, a flued gas heater, vents these harmful chemicals outside the home through a chimney. Unflued gas heaters should be avoided. For the safest option, purchase a flued gas heater. If a flued gas heater is not an option, purchase an electric heater. Electric heaters produce no indoor air pollutants.

What is the difference between Flued and unflued gas heaters?

When choosing a gas heater, it is important to understand the safest option. All gas heaters burn fuel to create heat, which when not vented correctly can be extremely hazardous. Flued gas heaters vent air pollutants and water vapours caused by burning gas fuel outside of the home. This is done through a chimney or flue. Unflued gas heaters are very dangerous. Unflued gas filters vent the air pollutants and water vapours directly into the home, which has the potential to cause indoor air pollution. An unflued gas heater can expose you to higher levels of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide.

Are portable gas heaters safe to use indoors?

Outdoor gas heaters should never be used indoors. Outdoor gas heaters are not designed for use inside, but there are indoor gas heaters available for installation. Indoor portable gas heaters are safe to use indoors when properly used and maintained. Inside or outside, proper ventilation is very important. Indoor portable gas heaters must be installed by licensed gas fitters. This will ensure safe use and proper ventilation. When using an indoor gas heater, it is key to regularly clean the filter for ventilation and to maintain proper air flow. While these are safe to use indoors, children and pets should be kept away. Always turn off the gas heater when unattended or when going to bed, and never sit on a gas heater. Portable gas heaters should never be covered and should always be kept at least one metre away from all flammable objects.

Does central heating work on gas?

Most household heating systems use gas or fuel oil. Some other systems may use electricity, but gas is the most common fuel source for central heating due to the operation of furnaces for heat. Central heating systems that operate on gas involve a furnace that burns fuel to create power for heat. These furnaces are powered using gas, and use heat exchangers to convert warm air.

Is ducted gas heating expensive to run?

Ducted gas heating is designed to help cut down energy costs and electricity bills. Using natural gas, ducted gas heating systems are one of the most efficient and cost-effective gas appliances. In addition to lower costs, ducted gas heating systems can often do more than other gas heating systems. Each room can be set to have their own heating temperatures, due to the ducts that carry the warm air. Ducted gas heating systems are one of the most efficient heating systems on the market and are significantly cheaper to run.

To find out more contact Scott at FXD Plumbing Sydney Inner West or Call Now on 0428 795 498.

How does ducted gas heating work?

Essential for central heating systems, ducted gas heating systems pump warm air throughout interior spaces no matter the temperature outside. Ducted gas heating systems include several components that collect cold air, heat the air and push it through ducts into interior spaces. The gas heater, often located outside, draws in air with a fan and passes the cold air over a heat exchanger using gas combustion to heat it. Once heated, the warm air is distributed throughout vents and registers. Operating a ducted gas heating system is simply done with a thermostat. Although, the system must have a heating unit, properly installed ducts, register vents and a thermostat to work properly.

What is gas fitting?

Gas fitting involves installing, altering or repairing gas appliances. This includes fixing gas pipes, fixing ventilation or flue pipes and ensuring the safe operation of all gas appliances. Gas fitting experts will test, set, check and adjust gas appliances and controls to ensure there is safety and ventilation. Gas fitting does not include work on portable gas appliances where the gas bottle is attached. Some of these appliances that are not suitable for gas fitting work include barbecues, patio heaters and cabinet heaters. Gas fitting must be done by a gas fitting expert in order to guarantee appropriate safety and a long-lasting fix.
