Do you want your home to be fitted with gas as part of a home improvement?

Many people choose gas as the most convenient and flexible form of energy inside a home, suitable for both heating and cooking, and call out professional gas fitters like Plumb 1 Industries for installation.

If you are preparing for gas fitting in your Sunshine Coast home, then we have a few tips to make the process go more smoothly. 

Speak to your fitter beforehand


What are you looking for when it comes to installing gas fittings?

You might get a better idea of what to expect by speaking to the fitting team beforehand.

They can help you to imagine where the gas points might be best placed, or convenient links between the boiler and your mixer shower, for example. 

Have a plan for the gas meter


You will need to have a gas meter fitted, and you should think about the best place for this before the fitter arrives.

You might have a preferred location, out of the way of everything, or one which is likely to be free of furniture so it can be reached easily, but still not an easy location for pets to come into contact with it.

Talk to Plumb 1 Industries about the best place. 

Ask about gas stop points


Like with your water pipes, you will need to be able to turn off the gas quickly and easily.

This point should be easy to access, and you should be able to reach down without problem to stop it at any point. 

Keep your access points clear


Your Plumb 1 Industries fitter will want you to have a clear space around where you want the gas utilities to be.

This means removing all nearby furniture, cleaning down the surfaces and making sure that there is free access to all parts of the space. 

Turn off electricity and water


If you are having a gas boiler or oven installed in your home, you are likely to have to turn off the other utilities prior to the fitting.

This might mean turning off your electrical circuits or closing the water pipe.
