WHat is a gas fitter?

A gas-fitter is someone who is specially trained to repair, service, and replace natural gas appliances and fixtures. This includes ovens, cook tops, gas bbq, gas heating and gas hot water systems. A gas-fitter has different qualifications to a licenced plumber and must hold an appropriate gas fitting license.

In Australia, you must engage a licensed gas fitter to install, repair or service any gas appliance or gas fitting.

A gas-fitter can also be a licensed plumber, known as a gas plumber. In many cases, gas-fitters start out as a plumber and then go on to gain the gas-fitting qualifications.

Lucas Plumbing and Gas solutions have a team of professional and fully licensed Adelaide plumbers and gas-fitters to service your residential or commercial plumbing and gas fitting needs including gas appliance installation or leak detection.

What does a gas fitter do?

A licensed gas fitter and gas plumber will generally carry out all work relating to gas.  Including:

  • Gas appliance installation and service
  • Gas heating installation and service
  • Gas hot water installation and service
  • Gas leak detection
  • Gas leak repairs
  • Installing gas pipes
  • Testing gas pipes
  • Gas connections
  • Solar Hot water gas boost
  • Commercial gas maintenance and service

Always remember that you must have a fully licensed gas plumber and gas fitter carry out any work relating to gas. A qualified Gas Fitter will issue a certificate of compliance where needed so you have a record of the job, and that it complies with standards.


When to engage a Gas Fitter over a plumber

Many gas fitters are also licensed plumbers but not all plumbers are gas fitters.

For emergency plumbing, day or night, projects that don’t require gas fitting or gas repairs or for plumbing repairs such as leak repairs or drain cleaning you’d be fairly safe calling a standard licensed plumber. Emergency gas issues need to be fixed quickly as they can pose a danger to those around the issue.

For projects such as kitchen or bathroom renovations and repairs or maintenance on gas appliances and hot water systems, it is better to engage with a gas fitter who is also a plumber. Having the skills for repair and installation to your gas heater or heat pump hot water system, is a crucial part of any gas fitter in Adelaide.

Most Adelaide homes have either solar or gas hot water systems. In an emergency plumbing situation where you have no hot water, the average Adelaide homeowner may not be aware if the problem is relating to the gas connection or the plumbing. In these situations, it is better to engage with a gas fitter who is also a licensed plumber.  Keep in mind that many solar hot water systems such as Rinnai hot water systems and other similar brands, have a gas boost and you’ll need a gas fitter to carry out repairs and maintenance.

Gas Fitter Adelaide



You’ve just spent big bucks on that brand new state of the art gas oven; surely it won’t hurt to save a few dollars and install it yourself. I mean, it’s only a few pipes to connect. It’d be easy, right? Wrong!

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

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

If you live in an older home, the gas fitter can check your gas connections to ensure they are safe and meet the requirements. They can check existing pipes for leaks, test the new appliance to make sure it’s working as per manufactures specifications and can even check other gas appliances for safety.

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 are a local plumber that can help you for all of your gas fitting jobs.
