Electricity prices keep soaring with every passing day, and many property owners find themselves forking out higher amounts with no significant change in usage. We at The Gas Doctor Melbourne encourage people to switch to natural gas. It is the best solution to this problem and is an excellent alternative to electricity-operated systems that don’t have the energy-efficiency that gas appliances do. It’s also one of the ways to solve existing energy concerns.

What makes Gas a Better Option?

Many things make gas a better option than electricity. Here we take a look at what they are:

  • Reliability – Distributors deliver natural gas to customers as per their demand, and you do not have to worry about reliability and supply issues that are common where electricity is used. On average, Australia’s natural gas network experiences downtime only every 40 years, which makes it a very reliable fuel choice.

    It means that if you have a natural gas connection on your property, you may still have access to space warming options in your home in case there is a blackout. Taking a hot shower or having hot water to do the dishes will never be a problem.
  • Affordability – Natural gas pricing is affordable and has been so consistently for many years. When you use electricity, any increase in consumption also escalates your tariffs. The larger the number of gas appliances on your property, the more you will end up saving.

    This is because you spend a lower amount per unit of gas as your consumption increases. The initial set up of gas fixtures and fittings is indeed a little higher than their electric counterparts. But its running costs are considerably cheaper, making it a more affordable option overall now and in the future.
  • Fewer greenhouse gas emissions – Natural gas is environmentally friendlier than electricity though the former is a fossil fuel. Its emissions are far lower than coal as its chemical structure is different. When you opt for gas on your property, you get an affordable, convenient, and reliable fuel choice, while doing your bit for the environment.

Licensed Melbourne Gas Fitters

No matter which way you look at it, natural gas is an excellent alternative to electricity, and you can benefit significantly by switching to it. But whenever you are getting any gas installations for your property, you must hire licensed gas fitters in Melbourne for the job, and that’s where we come in. 

We are a leading company in this industry. Our expert gas fitters team can handle all manner of gas installations, service, repairs, and maintenance. We help with every aspect of the projects, including providing advice, appliance selection, and the actual installation.

When you are getting any gas installations, repairs or service done, you need to make sure that you are hiring the right professionals. While many plumbing companies mention that they handle gas-related works, they might not always be the right choice. At The Gas Doctor Melbourne, we are a leading company in this industry and provide high-quality gas fitting services in Melbourne.  Here is some information on how to find the right gas fitter.

1. Licensing is Crucial

The very first thing is that the person you hire should be a licensed gas fitter. Not only is it illegal to get unlicensed gas work done, but it can be unsafe too. When you use a licensed gas fitter, you can be sure that your appliance will be installed safely, to industry standards. Gas is something you need to handle carefully. If you hire an unlicensed professional, there is always the risk of something going wrong down the line. Gas leaks can be hazardous to health and your property.

To check whether your gas fitter in Melbourne has the necessary licensing, ask them to show you their gas fitting card; that proves they have undergone the required training. You can double-check their qualification on Master Plumbers Australia or Licensedtrades.com.au.

2. Know that a Plumber is Different from a Gasfitter

This can become a little confusing. As mentioned at the outset, some plumbing companies also offer gasfitting services, but they are not specialised like the professionals that exclusively provide gas fitting solutions. The latter, like us, are skilled, trained and qualified to handle all manner of gas installation, repairs and service.

That’s what we have specialised in, and it means we have more expertise in handling these jobs. Whether you need a gas BBQ, any gas fixtures and upright cookers etc. installed, replaced or repaired on a residential, commercial or industrial property, a Melbourne gas fitter can handle the task. The various jobs they can handle include:

  • Installing gas pipes
  • Appliance maintenance
  • Providing advice on operating and maintaining gas appliances
  • Installing gas related appliances and similar equipment
  • Installing gas appliance flues
  • Installing pressure regulating and gas detection systems
  • Testing pipework for various gas appliances
  • Installing LPG systems in caravans or boats
  • Reading and interpreting gas fitting plans
  • Maintaining pipes and ancillary equipment used for the safe operation of appliances that use flue gasses

High-Grade Gas Fitting Services

As you can see, there is a wide range of services that The Gas Doctor Melbourne can handle. While many companies in the region provide these services, not many offer the reliability, affordability and guarantees that we provide. We work with our clients, understand their needs, provide inputs and help with appliance selection and handle every aspect of the job to industry standards.
