Heater servicing signs

Not every gas heater displays an error code. Sometimes, all you’d get are just hints that something is wrong with your heater. Below are some of those telltale signs.

  • The pilot light goes out unexpectedly, or you hear a ‘pop’ or ‘bang’ when it is being lit.
  • Your heater gives off a foul, chemical-like odor.
  • The heater’s pilot flame frequently turns off.
  • There is an irregular sound coming from the heater’s fan.
  • The heater switches off when you remove your finger from the ignition button
  • Your eyes get irritated when your heater is on.

Your gas heater technician will discuss concerns and understand the issues you have with your gas heater. Your heater will be removed and taken outside where the servicing will be completed. The heater technician will dismantle the outer casing and clean out internal and filter dust buildup.

Once all components have been cleaned, your gas heater technician will test and service:

  • Ignition system
  • Clean blockages in your injectors
  • Test your valves
  • Check all wire harnessing
  • Check your fan
  • Test the heater circuit board
  • Check your hose
  • Test for gas leakages
  • Test for carbon monoxide emission

How often should you service your gas heater?

Manufacturers recommend servicing of your heater every second year on new heaters and yearly on older heaters.

Why you should service your gas heater

Harmful gases such as carbon monoxide can be released from unflued gas heaters. When breathed in, carbon monoxide displaces oxygen in the bloodstream and deprives the heart, brain and vital organs of oxygen.

To prevent any exposure to harmful gasses, it is important to ensure:

  • your heater is serviced regularly
  • the room where your heater is situated is well ventilated
  • your gas heater is turned off when you leave home or work
  • children are supervised around heaters

Safety ensured gas heater servicing

When it comes to gas heaters, safety is paramount. A faulty gas heater can leak gas or even emit carbon dioxide, potentially placing you and your family in danger. So to ensure the safety of your home, you need to have it serviced regularly. It’s generally recommended that you get your gas heater serviced once every two years if it is a newer model, and once a year if it is an older model. 

Here at New Life Plumbing, we understand the importance of regular gas heater servicing. So if you’re unsure about the age of your model, feel free to contact us, and we will be happy to help you out.

Do gas heaters need servicing?

Yes. A malfunctioning gas heater can be quite dangerous. Faulty gas heaters can emit harmful gases such as carbon monoxide. If breathed in, carbon monoxide can deprive your vital organs of oxygen and have severe consequences for your health. To avoid any potential issues, it is important that you schedule a gas heater service at least once every two years for newer models and once a year for older models.

It is crucial to ensure several essential preventative measures are taken to prevent any exposure to harmful gasses.

  • Regular gas heater servicing
  • Adequate ventilation in the space where you keep your gas heater
  • Make sure to turn off your gas heater when no one is at home
  • Take care to supervise any children that are near gas heaters

How often should you service your gas heater?

It is recommended that you have a gas heating service performed every second year on newer model gas heaters and every year for older models. Contact us to book a service today.

Generally, most newer model heaters will let you know if they are faulty, need a service, or repair. This will usually take the form of an error code on the heater’s display. If your gas heater is an older model or does not display an error code, there are several signs to look out for that may indicate a malfunction. If you notice any of these signs, contact us immediately:

  • Your heaters pilot light goes out or makes a loud noise
  • Your heater emits a pungent odour
  • Your heater’s fan is making a strange noise
  • Your heater frequently turns off unexpectedly
  • Your heater causes discomfort for your eyes when it is on

Additionally, if you also experience any dizziness, drowsiness, or experience unusual headaches that are out of the ordinary, turn off your gas heater immediately. Open all windows and doors and then evacuate the property. It is best to call 000 if any physical effects are felt, and you can contact us on 1300 25 10 10 for emergency gas heater servicing.

What happens during a gas heater service?

After you contact New Life Plumbing, your expert gas heater technician will discuss your concerns and formulate a plan of action. We conduct a thorough investigation and will work with you to see what needs to be done. If the issue requires an inspection and repair, your heater will be removed and taken outside to be serviced in a safe environment. The heater technician will dismantle the outer casing, clean the internals, and filter the dust buildup.

Once all components have been cleaned and cleared, your gas heater technician will test several aspects of your unit for a complete service:

  • Ignition system
  • Clean blockages in your injectors
  • Heater valves
  • All wire harnessing
  • Heater fan
  • Heater circuit board
  • Heater hose
  • Look for gas leakages
  • Test for carbon monoxide emission

Charlie from New Life Plumbing replaced our old indoor storage water heater with a new continuous flow heater. He was prompt and informative, and did a great job with the installation including the vent through the external wall. Highly recommended.

We had our gas heater serviced. We have used 2 other companies in the past and were not impressed with either company. They merely gave the heater a bit of a dust over. New Life Plumbing described their service over the phone and already I was impressed. The service is friendly and informative. I would highly recommend.
