Gasfitting Services in Melbourne, Victoria
More than 5 million Australian households are connected to the gas grid, supplying gas to over 11 million household appliances such as stoves, heaters etc. Gas forms an essential part of our lives. Gas is good alternative to electricity and therefore more and more people switch to gas.
The most household energy in the average home goes to heating and cooling (41%). Next on the list are household appliances, like the stove and the fridge (30-35%). The third biggest energy bill is spent on your hot water system (20%). Hence, making a difference in your wallet and on the planet is made in these three areas. Choosing gas over electricity for your home can make a big difference financially and environmentally.
Connecting gas to a new home –
If you are building a house or buying off the plan and there is no gas connection to the house you will need to get it installed. Which shouldn’t be that big of an issue. In most, if not all, metro areas you will be able to get gas connected to the house. All you have to do is contact the network provider in your state and have them install the connection to the house, including a gas meter. From the gas meter we will take over. As specialised gas fitters Prime Plumbing & Gasfitting will ensure the gas runs to the heater and cooler, the hot water unit, and the stove.
Connecting an existing home
Most people are not aware that even an existing house can be connected to gas. And although it is a bit more work than hooking up a new home to gas, it is something our expert gasfitters can definitely assist you with. From connecting your gas fire place, to putting in a barbeque point, anything is possible. Setting up LPG (bottled gas) to your home instead of being connected to the gas grid is also possible. If you want to know more about what your options are, we are just a simple phone call away.
Upgrading gas supply
Another big part of the expert service we provide at Prime Plumbing & Gasfitting in regard to gas, is upgrading a gas supply. If people want to say switch from a hot water tank to an instant hot water unit, usually the gas supply has to be increased. What that means is that more gas is needed to ‘fuel’ the hot water unit. If that is the case in your situation, please feel free to contact our friendly staff and we will provide you with an obligation free quote. We can do the gas upgrade for you and install the new hot water unit at the same time. This is one of the many benefits of choosing Prime Plumbing & Gasfitting for your repair and install needs around the house.
