 5 quick tips to make sure your gas heater is ready for winter

Nothing beats a warm toasty house in the middle of a cold winter, however, it’s important that you check your heater early to see if it’s safe to use before the chill sets in.

Gas Heater Service

Gas heater tips

The team at Pure Plumbing Professionals have created a quick checklist to ensure your heater is safe and operational this winter.

  • The first thing to consider is whether or not you get your gas heater serviced regularly. Most manufacturers recommend a service is necessary every two years to enable appliance longevity and functionality. It’s important that only a licensed gas fitter service your heater, otherwise there could be issues down the track. Contact the friendly team at Pure Plumbing Professionals today for your heater service today on (02) 8188 5339.
  • The second important tip (although it may be considered boring) is to read your gas heaters owner’s manual to ensure a safe operation and setup.
  • Make sure you have chosen an appropriately sized heater for the room otherwise this creates the possibility of air pollution in your home. If you need help choosing the right size gas heater, don’t hesitate to talk to the team at Pure Plumbing Professionals for a professional opinion.
  • Ensure that you regularly clean the gas filter during heating season in order to provide continuous clean air flow and to avoid breakdowns that can lead to costly repairs.
  • Once you turn your heater on to check how it is running, it’s important to note that if you ever smell gas, turn off the gas at your gas bottle valve and do not turn it back on until checked by one of our licensed gas fitters at Pure Plumbing Professionals. Do not create any sparks and leave the area after opening all the doors and windows.
