Here are some reasons why you may need to arrange a gas heater service:
- The gas heater produces a yellow or sooty flame.
- Regular extinguishing of the pilot light.
- The pilot light makes a pop noise when lit.
- Signs of heat damage appear on the heater.
- Soot stains appear on the walls near the heater.
- The heater gets overly hot or can’t be turned down.
The need for gas heater maintenance
When a gas heater or log fire is operating properly then it is a perfectly safe addition to a home that brings great comfort. However if a gas heater is not operating properly or has been installed or serviced incorrectly then a build-up of carbon monoxide in the home is possible. Carbon monoxide is a by-product of gas heaters and is normally emitted safely through a flue on a properly functioning unit.
This is the main reason why it is recommended to have a full service annually or biennially for gas heaters – which includes the inspection of hoses, connections and the flue. Always make sure that this gas heater service is completed by a licensed gas fitter.
