Maintenance of gas connections

Gas is a useful source of energy. Not only is it powerful, but affordable as well. It can be used to heat hot water or cook dinner. It’s important to make sure that your gas is working to the right standard. Below, we’ve listed a few ways to keep your gas working smoothly.

Be aware

It’s important to be aware of where your gas connections are in case of an emergency. They need to be checked regularly and kept clean. You can do this independently or hire a qualified plumber to carry out the work for you.


While DIY can seem appealing, it’s never a good idea when gas is involved. Repairs can endanger your valuable installations and void your insurance. Most importantly, it could endanger your life if done incorrectly. It’s always a good idea to hire an experienced technician if you’re unsure.

Proper use

The best way to utilise gas is when it’s been used correctly. This is easy to do when you’ve got a manual. It should let you know when gas regulators and gas pressure needs to be inspected. It’s important that your gas pressure doesn’t build up, as this will make your gas unsafe.

Look for signs

Spotting problems with your gas is easy if you know what signs to look for. If you notice unusual burning, soot deposits, odd smells or a frequent loss of flame, you may have a gas problem. Your appliance may be running inefficiently, or it could be an indication that something is wrong.

Ensure no leaks

Check your connections and hoses regularly to make sure there are no leaks.

 Emergency steps

If you smell gas, turn it off immediately. Don’t turn on lights or use any appliances. Open your window to let the air come in, and do not return to the affected area until it is safe. It’s best to call a licensed technician to fix the problem quickly and safely.
