STAY WARM THIS WINTER WITH GAS HEATING

Gas heating is the number one choice for keeping your home warm this winter. Just over 20% of Adelaide homeowners energy consumption goes to heating and cooling, so you want a heating solution that is economical and efficient to avoid bill shock!

Cheaper to operate and much kinder on the environment than other heating methods, there are a large number of gas heating choices available – space heaters, ducted heating, gas log fires and even outdoor heating.

Gas heating is the best choice to heat large spaces quickly and given today’s open plan living homes; it’s the perfect choice to heat your home efficiently. Ducted gas heating will maintain the internal temperature of your home much more efficiently than a reverse cycle air conditioning system.  With an electric system, the outdoor temperature affects the efficiency of the system, and in some cases, the external unit will turn off to defrost. A gas ducted heating system does not have this issue and will comfortably operate in virtually any weather climate.

Lucas Plumbing and Gas Solutions can assist you with the installation of your gas heating system by Rinnai, Bravis, Braemar or any other brand and we can also help with other gas appliance installation. We can provide expert advice on the best solution for your home and assist you with the application for any rebates available to make the switch and save you money.

Outdoor entertaining all year round

A standard outdoor gas heater cannot always be connected to natural gas. Look for and research natural gas patio heaters to find the best heater for your outdoor area or contact the professional team from Lucas Plumbing and Gas Solutions to talk about your outdoor heating needs.  

At the same time, we can also talk about converting your barbeque to natural gas, giving you a complete alfresco solution.

WHO CAN INSTALL MY GAS OVEN?

Installing a gas oven might seem like a simple DIY job but it’s actually one that must be completed by a professional.

Gas can be hazardous, and all gas appliance installations must be carried out by a licensed gas fitter or gas plumber. In Australia, any gas appliance installations must meet Australian standards to protect those using the appliance now and in the future.

Plus, you want your new oven functioning at maximum efficiency and only a licensed gas fitter will know exactly how it can be installed for that to happen.

As well as being a legal requirement, there are many other benefits of having a gas fitter install your new appliance.  

If you are renovating your kitchen, a qualified gas fitter can either install your new oven in the same location as your current oven or install a new gas fitting in a different location.

GAS OVEN INSTALLATION – WHAT TO EXPECT?

Generally, you can expect your gas fitter to:

  • Inspect your gas connections to ensure they are safe;
  • Disconnect your old oven and in some cases even dispose of your oven;
  • Connect your new oven;
  • Test the oven to ensure it is functioning as per manufacturers specifications;
  • Inspect other gas appliances for safety;
  • Show you how to use your new oven;
  • Provide you with a certificate of compliance.

Gas fitting is not a DIY area. Contact the professional team at Lucas Plumbing and Gas Solutions to discuss your next gas appliance installation or service. We have extensive experience installing gas ovens from big brands such as Blanco, Bosch, Chef, Electrolux, Fisher and Paykel, Smeg, Westinghouse and Whirlpool.

OUTDOOR KITCHEN – CONVERT YOUR BBQ TO NATURAL GAS

With outdoor living and outdoor entertaining gaining popularity, many Adelaide homeowners are now converting their Aussie bbq to a natural gas connection to complete the ultimate outdoor kitchen and alfresco dining and entertaining area.

Like with every other gas appliance installation, a conversion to natural gas can only be completed by a licensed and qualified gas plumber.

While for many people, the dream of never running out of gas mid bbq again is worth the expense of converting their bbq from LPG to natural gas, and there are many things to consider before converting your backyard barbie to natural gas.

INTERESTED IN OUR SERVICES?

CONVERTING YOUR BBQ – WHAT TO EXPECT

Conversion Kit

Not all bbq’s are ready to be connected to Natural Gas. Some will require a conversion kit. You must purchase the correct conversion kit. A conversion will require changing the gas jets inside the BBQ and then plugging it into a natural gas connection. The connection and flow of an LPG connection vary to that of a natural gas connection. Research your conversion kit, and some can be expensive.

Gas Line Installation

Depending on the age of your current gas connection, you might need to upgrade your existing gas pipes to cope with the extra demand.  You will also need to install a new gas connection to your outdoor kitchen. Carefully plan out your alfresco dining and entertaining area before installing the gas line. Gas appliances cannot be easily moved around. If you are not happy with the location of your bbq, you’ll need to engage a gas fitter to move it and install a new connection.

Once you’ve converted your bbq and installed a new gas connection you are now set for endless alfresco entertaining. The professional and fully licensed gas plumbers from Lucas Plumbing and Gas Solutions can also assist you with a consultation for outdoor, pool or spa heating. We can also help you with follow up maintenance and repair of your gas appliances after the initial installation.

DO YOU SMELL GAS?

The smell of gas near your gas appliances or connections indicate that there is a leak. A gas leak should be attended to immediately. Contact us on our emergency hotline – 0433 388 517 for immediate response.

If you smell gas, you should immediately turn off all gas and electrical appliances, extinguish all naked flames and pilot lights and open all doors and windows to your home (if the smell is inside). Contact Lucas Plumbing and Gas Solutions, and we will attend and investigate your leak.

Repairs to any gas appliance should be treated as a plumbing emergency. Faulty gas appliances can emit carbon monoxide – a poisonous gas that can be hazardous to your family.

KEEPING YOUR GAS APPLIANCES SAFE

To keep your gas appliances safe and running at the optimal performance, they should be inspected and serviced every two years. All gas appliances over ten years should be serviced every year. 

Unsafe or unserviced gas appliances can pollute your home with dangerous fumes.

Adelaide homeowners can help prevent faults within their gas appliances by regularly clearing dirt and dust build-up. Dirt and dust are the number one cause of problems with gas heaters and if left can cause the heater to smell “dirty” or lead to filter lights flashing which can only be cleared through servicing.

SERVICING GAS APPLIANCES

Servicing your gas appliances as per the manufacturer’s specifications will not only maximise efficiency and extend the life of the gas appliance, it is vitally important to maintain the safety of the appliance. Regular servicing will help prevent gas leaks and other preventable problems.

During a service of your gas appliances, our professional and licensed gas plumbers will:

  • Clear air filters
  • Test hoses and connections for leaks
  • Clean burners
  • Inspect regulators; and
  • Test gas pressure.

A HIDDEN DANGER IN YOUR HOME

It is recommended that ALL types of gas heaters are serviced every two years by a licensed gas fitter who has completed training on detecting and correcting risks of carbon monoxide spillage.

Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless, tasteless gas that can be emitted by poorly serviced or faulty gas heaters. In a home with little ventilation or small spaces, carbon monoxide can build to dangerous levels.

Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when there is a dangerous level of carbon monoxide in the air and can lead to flu-like symptoms such as headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. 

It is essential that you adhere to the servicing requirements of all gas appliances in your home to prevent carbon monoxide affecting your family. All servicing should be carried out by a licensed gas fitter.
