What is Carbon Monoxide?
If you have a gas appliance in your home, room heater, gas stove top, gas oven or even gas ducted heating, carbon monoxide testing is required to ensure that you, your family and pets are safe. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas that is produced by faulty gas appliances. Carbon Monoxide being a by-product has no odour or physical appearance, making it a true silent killer. If you have any gas appliances, old gas stoves, and heaters, they may look OK and still provide warmth, but may also be creating an unforeseen DANGER!
Quality Plumbing and Gas recommend that a test is done 12 monthly if you use a gas room heater or ducted heating, 3 yearly for other appliances.
