It is crucial to ensure that your gas system is in good working order, especially as we head into winter. With colder temperatures on the horizon, you’ll likely rely on your gas system more frequently to keep your home warm and comfortable. Here are some of the most important reasons why having your gas system properly serviced and checked by a licensed professional heading into winter is so important.
The most important reason to have your gas system checked before winter is safety. Gas systems can be dangerous if not maintained properly, with potential risks including gas leaks, fires, and explosions. By having your gas system inspected and serviced by a professional, you can ensure that any potential safety hazards are identified and addressed before they become serious. Even if you do not suspect an immediate issue with your gas supply, a preventative maintenance check is always advised.
A gas system that is not properly serviced and maintained can be less efficient, resulting in higher energy bills and a less comfortable home. Mr Drains’ professional gas service technicians can identify any issues with your system and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to improve its efficiency, which can save you money on your energy bills and keep your home at a comfortable temperature throughout the winter.
Regular maintenance and servicing of your gas system can also help to prolong its lifespan. A gas system that is neglected and not serviced can wear down more quickly, leading to the need for expensive repairs or even replacement. By having your gas system checked and serviced before winter, you can ensure that it is in good working order and ready to withstand the demands of the colder months.
Peace of Mind
Finally, having your gas system properly serviced and checked before winter can give you peace of mind. You’ll know that your system is safe, efficient, and reliable, which means you can relax and enjoy the warmth and comfort of your home without worrying about any potential issues with your gas system.
Suspect a Leak?
Natural gas, under normal conditions, serves as one of the cleanest, most environmentally responsible, and most efficient major energy sources. When gas leaks, however, it can pose a threat to property and lives.
According to Energy Australia, if you suspect a gas leak, normally through a distinctive smell or an increase in the quarterly gas bill, you should first turn off the main gas tap. The gas providers strongly advise that you call an experienced and licensed gas fitter as quickly as possible after discovering the presence of a leak. If you notice a lingering “rotten egg” smell in or around your home, call Mr Drains immediately on (02) 9986 1234.
