It is important to have your gas heater regularly inspected for safety. For landlords and agents, this will be a requirement.
Energy Safe Victoria recommends that gas heaters are serviced at least once every two years by a qualified gasfitter, and that all homeowners, tenants, landlords, and real estate agents take responsibility to ensure this happens in any property where a gas heater is used.
Carbon monoxide spillage from gas heaters poses serious health risks, and can prove fatal. Carbon monoxide safety programs and gas heater regulations are in place to keep everyone safe. You can check whether a heater in your property has been affected by a safety alert. You can also ensure that your home has adequate ventilation, and that exhaust fans are not creating dangerous negative pressure environments within the home.
Carbon monoxide alarms can be purchased and installed as an additional safeguard in the case of carbon monoxide spillage from a gas heater. As carbon monoxide gas is both invisible and odourless, these alarms can provide a vital first line of defence for residents.
If you have any further questions regarding carbon monoxide and gas heater safety, then you can contact Energy Safe Victoria, the Victorian Building Authority, or the team at Grech Heating and Cooling Systems.
