Qualified and licensed gas fitters do many different types of gas fitting tasks including:

Not every plumber is a gas fitter. For any of these listed tasks, and more, you need a certified gas fitter who can match Australian standards and do your gas fitting servicing, repair, or installation work safely, professionally and expertly. A qualified gas fitter will perform tasks within local council guidelines and also meet regulations around energy efficiency.
Gas fitters perform a variety of jobs, and working with gas lines and appliances that use gas is their specialty. With their knowledge of gas appliances and safety regulations around gas lines, they are crucial tradespeople to hire in making your home a safer space for your family. Please note, unlicensed gas work is illegal and potentially dangerous. Do not attempt DIY in any gas related work and always rely on a professional to get the job done right the first time. Your manufacturer’s warranty and insurance cover may also be void if gas work is performed by an unlicensed person.
Why Find a Good Gas Fitter – Licensed Gas Plumber
Gas appliances such as gas oven, gas cook-top, gas heater, gas hot water system, gas refrigerator, etc. are a part and parcel of our day to day lives. Hence, it is always recommended that we observe the highest safety standards when installing, repairing, servicing, or replacing any of these appliances.
You must always use a licensed gas fitter (licensed gas plumber) for any projects or appliances that involve gas. This includes gas appliance installations, repairs, and maintenance, renovating or installing LPG gas bottles on your home and all other gas fitting work. As a homeowner, you have a duty to ensure that all your gas connections are safe and that the gas appliances aren’t faulty.
Gas Fitter Licensing
Make sure to enquire and see the gas fitter’s license to confirm that you are getting expert service for the specific type of gas work you require. Licensed gas fitters have a gas fitter number, issued by their State regulatory authority, authorizing them to carry out gasfitting work lawfully. Always be sure to get a licensed gas fitter for any gas repair, maintenance or installation work in your household or place of business.
Gas Fitters vs Plumbers
Many licensed gas-fitters are also plumbers but not all plumbers are gas fitters. If you require repair, installation, or maintenance of a gas appliance such as a gas hot water system, make sure to hire a tradesperson who has the experience and is a licensed gas fitting and plumbing technician. We recommend asking before hiring a tradesperson about their level of expertise and knowledge of gas appliances that you want to get installed. Not all gas fitters can install all gas appliances or do plumbing work that may be needed for your job.
