Before it’s used to warm your home this winter, it’s important to ensure your gas heater is working safely, effectively and efficiently. Gas heaters should only be serviced by a licenced gas professional.
Read on to learn 3 reasons to have your gas heater serviced regularly including:
- Peace of mind your gas heater is safe
- Identify and repair damages before they escalate
- Extend the life of your gas heater
Peace of mind your gas heater is safe
A gas leak is serious and dangerous. As natural gas is odourless, a distinctive odour is added to warn of a gas leak. If you suspect you may have a gas leak or can smell gas, act straight away. If you suspect your gas heater has a leak, turn the heater off and call a licenced gas professional immediately. It is recommended to have your gas heater serviced yearly. Having your gas heater serviced before using it will give you peace of mind it is in proper working order.
Identify and repair damages before they escalate
As with most appliances, regular servicing helps to minimise the risk of small issues turning into larger, more costly issues. Hazards and faults that may not be able to be identified and repaired by someone other than a trained professional can be dangerous and lead to bigger problems if left and not repaired.
Extend the life of your gas heater
Servicing your gas heater regularly makes it work efficiently. If not serviced, dirt, hair and dust can build up in your gas heater preventing it from working efficiently or worse still stop it from working at all. It’s recommended to check the warranty conditions when purchasing a new gas heater. Many warranties state the gas heater must be serviced regularly, such as every year, for the warranty to remain valid.
