Carbon Monoxide Testing

Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer!

What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide is an odourless, colourless gas that can be produced by faulty, un-serviced gas ducted heaters.

How can you prevent Carbon Monoxide?

Energy Safe Victoria and the Victorian Building Authority recommend having your gas heater serviced at least every 2 years. Regular servicing is the only way to reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning caused by faulty gas appliances.

If you book a Gas Heater Service with Plum Heating and Cooling a carbon monoxide test is included for FREE. All Plum technicians are equipped with a state of the art, German-engineered Testo Carbon Monoxide Testing device. Once your heater service is completed, our technician will give you a printed receipt of the carbon monoxide levels in your home.

  • Soot or discolouration around the gas appliances
  • Yellow flames
  • The heater going out for no apparent reason
  • Debris falling down the flue pipe
  • Missing or damaged cowl on the top of the flue pipe

Your heater is like your car, it needs to be serviced regularly. It’s not enough to get your heater serviced once. It needs to become part of your regular household maintenance and done at least every 2 years.
