- Loud noises or noises which are different than normal

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 safety and performance of your gas heater. This includes checking the gas fitting line, all internal heater components. This includes performing a carbon monoxide test, manometer test, gas supply pressure test and air quality test.
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, holes and gas leaks
- 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 heater in autumn, to reduce the likelihood of failure occurring during the harsh Melbourne winter.
For the consistent and safe operation of your heating, we recommend your gas heating is serviced every year. Ideally, at the start of the winter to ensure you don’t get caught out on a cold night! Gas appliances require monitoring not just to ensure efficient performance, but for safety of those in your home too.
We service all types of gas heating, from central heating to space heaters. We carry an extensive selection of tools and parts to perform heating repair when necessary.
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.
