Don’t leave your family’s well-being to chance by running an untested old gas heater this winter. Wall heaters can be dangerous if they haven’t been tested − especially the older ones. Gas heaters need to be tested on a regular basis to ensure they don’t release carbon monoxide, which can be fatal. At All Plumbing Melbourne, we use accurate carbon monoxide testing equipment to detect carbon monoxide leak problems.
Some of the signs that carbon monoxide may be present include:
If you notice any of these symptoms while using a gas heater, switch off the appliance immediately, evacuate everyone from the property, and call a professional who can conduct carbon monoxide testing. Urgent medical advice should also be sought if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide testing should be done on a yearly basis for both residential and commercial properties, giving you peace of mind that your gas heater won’t be posing a risk to your family or employees. Using a fully qualified gas fitter such as All Plumbing Melbourne is recommended.
