Testing & Services

Gas Safety Testing makes common sense!

Do you know that you cannot smell or see Carbon Monoxide (CO)?
Yet at high levels it can kill a person in minutes! Gas heaters are a common cause of risk when they are not properly maintained.

CO steps

Is your gas heater regularly serviced?
You care for your family?

Make your home gas safe!
Energy Safe Victoria, the gas safety regulator, advises that small children, unborn babies, people with heart issues and the elderly are particularly susceptible to CO poisoning.

Carbon Monoxide has claimed many lives and  ESV has recorded countless near misses where people have been nearly died from CO poisoning.

Regular testing and service is strongly recommended:

Energy Safe Victoria recommends that gas appliances are tested and inspected at least every 2 years. According to ESV, a gas appliance that has been correctly installed and regularly maintained will not present a hazard.

If however an appliance is not working properly or is used incorrectly, dangerous levels of Carbon Monoxide can result.
