All gas appliances need regular service to ensure correct and safe operation, and to extend the service life of the appliance. A poorly maintained or faulty gas appliance can leak harmful carbon monoxide gas, which can result in serious and dangerous health problems.

Aquair Pty. Ltd. Can service all forms of gas appliances, and can test the appliance for leaking gas, and harmful carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide discharges.
