Is your gas heater not providing the same level of warmth it used to? Many of our clients tell us they simply thought their gas heater was getting old and needed replacing. However, in most cases an older system will continue to keep your house warm with a regular gas heater service or some simple heater repairs.
You may require gas heater repairs if the following occurs:
- Heater emits less warmth than normal, or no warmth at all
- Walls or surfaces surrounding the heater become hot or discoloured
- Loud noises or noises which are different than normal
- Red or yellow flame (except for gas fireplace)
- Yellow/brown soot near the heater
- Pilot light often blows out
- If you notice strange smells, particularly gas/rotten egg-like smells such as carbon monoxide, or if you experience eye irritation
Gas heaters have become more complex, making further improvements in energy efficiency, quietness, and safety. Our technicians carry an extensive range of stock in their vehicles to fix your heating problems in one visit.
At Nortan we understand that rules and health and safety requirements are always changing in the heating industry. Carbon monoxide leakage is a hazard in gas heaters and can be dangerous for you and your family. We can spot this and take prompt action to remove the hazard immediately. Frequent servicing and prompt action when something isn’t right will ensure that you and your family can safely use gas heating.
We perform a thorough inspection of the gas fitting line and all internal heater components, performing tests such as carbon monoxide spill testing, manometer testing, gas supply pressure testing and air quality testing.
You may also have an older manual dial style which is faulty or you simply wish to improve it to something digital with timer settings. Many newer thermostats enable you to program the start and stop times over a 7 day period, so during winter you can set and forget.
Common gas heater service tasks include:
- Monitor overall unit performance
- Check for cracks and holes
- Test gas pressure
- Remove and clean burner components
- Test burner and pilot ignition
- Test carbon monoxide levels
- Cleaning filters
Check your owner's handbook or contact us to find out the recommended service intervals for your gas heater. These can vary from 12 to 24 months, depending on the manufacturer. Ideally, it’s best to service your gas heater in autumn, to reduce the likelihood of failure occurring during the harsh Melbourne winter.
Like you, we have a preference for repairing over replacing. However, when your gas heater has had its day, we can provide you with the new installation of a modern, energy-efficient unit.
Melbourne winters are freezing! When your gas heater stops working, it requires urgent action.
