When it comes to gas line repairs and installations, choosing an Alinta approved contractor means you’ve made the best choice.

Gas Lines

Your gas line is the pipeline that transports gas for your property. Unless using bottled gas, all of your gas appliances will need to be installed on your gas line.

The gas line is an important feature because it powers gas appliances and it safely transports gas which can otherwise be quite dangerous.  In Australia, you’re most likely using natural gas, which is safe provided it is contained. Alinta recommends that you have any and all gas appliances serviced every 12 months and that this work only be carried out by a licensed gas fitter.

How can my gas line get damaged?

There are a number of simple ways that a gas line can get damaged or ruptured. The most common way is if other work is being done on your property that hits a gas line. Contractors should always check before beginning work but if they have made a misjudgement you could have a damaged gas line that needs to be repaired.

Another common cause of gas line damage is wear and tear over time. Gas lines are designed to have long lives but, inevitably, they will break down over time. Regular maintenance can help catch these problems and save you from costly repairs.

Why would I need a gas line installed?

When renovating a house, you may decide that you want to have a new kitchen installed or you might want to convert your gas barbecue so that it runs off the household gas instead of bottles. Whatever the case, this usually means you will need a new gas line installed.

Gas lines are the backbone that supplies any and all gas appliances in a house. If you want to expand or renovate a property, you will need to look at how this will impact the current gas lines and whether or not you need new lines installed. The team at ACE+ are always happy to answer your questions and offer advice so that you can proceed with confidence.

What should I do if I think my gas line is damaged or leaking?

This is a simply way to see how much gas is being used in your house.

  • Locate your gas meter.
  • Turn off all gas appliances.
  • Check the meter, if the number is still going up you may have a leak.
