Carbon monoxide is a dangerous and sometimes deadly gas that is a byproduct of the burning process in gas appliances. Carbon monoxide is odorless, tasteless, and invisible and often this toxic gas is an overlooked danger in homes.
Gas heaters can produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide when dust or dirt builds up, ducts become blocked or the combustion process does not properly occur.
Safety checks of gas appliances, fixtures and installations at least every 2 years keep occupants safe from carbon monoxide leaks and ensure landlords and property managers are fulfiling their obligations. From March 2021, changes to the Residential Tenancies Act in Victoria make these checks mandatory.
We service South Oakleigh, Oakleigh, Oakleigh East, Chadstone, Glen Iris, Bentleigh, and surrounding suburbs in the South East Melbourne area.
If gas heaters and appliances go untested, deadly Carbon Monoxide leaks can cause significant harm to residents, and, in some cases, death. To protect both the resident and the property, the REIV recommends testing of gas appliances every two years.
