Licensed gas fitters (licensed gas plagers) have a gas fitting number, issued by the State regulatory body, authorising them to perform gas fitting jobs. Some States even have different licensing endorsements for different kinds of gas fitting jobs, including gas appliance conversions. Consult your State regulatory body to see which kind of gas fitting license the tradesperson is qualified to do, to verify that the tradesman is eligible to do the job you need done.

As a licensed professional plumber, you may also be employed by a gas fitting contractor, doing gas work for him. In this case, you would need to produce your gas fitting number when hiring the contractor, to be able to book the job. You may also find other professionals, like an HVAC specialist or electrician, offering the services you are looking for. You would need to contact these individuals and present your requirements, so that they can offer you a quote. Most contractors will be more than willing to help you get what you want, and will not charge you an upfront fee for quoting you a quote.

A gas fitting service usually involves a series of tests to assess whether a gas fitting is required for any given project. Before a plumber can make a decision about the fitting work he needs to do, he must first visit the site to inspect it. He then carries out all the necessary tests and asks for further advice from experienced persons on the safety issues, and methods involved in carrying out the work. He estimates the cost of carrying out the works, based on the estimated damage, which he determines from reports received from his team of lPGS technicians.

In the United Kingdom, the government has mandated certain guidelines for the safe installation of lPG gas hot water systems in domestic households. For instance, the installation of an LPG gas hot water system must be preceded by a comprehensive risk assessment carried out by certified technicians. This assessment assesses the likely problems that will arise during the whole lifetime of the appliances, as well as their specific properties, and determines how much it will cost to replace them, should such problems occur. Once the contractor has established the likely risks, he can come up with an estimate about the replacement expenses.

The lifecycle of LPG gas appliances is usually between ten and fifteen years, although this may vary depending on the manufacturer. However, there are several factors that may affect its durability, including the material of the appliance and its location. Furthermore, the condition and location of gas lines may influence its durability. If the area is subject to frequent changes in temperature, for example because of climate fluctuations, or if the area is often exposed to strong winds, the gas lines may easily deteriorate. Therefore, the LPG gas fitting company that one goes through will determine what appliances need to be replaced with more durable ones and suggest models to be fitted.

One of the reasons why it is important to hire a professional gas fitting work plumbers is that the work they do is complicated. Gas fitting is not a simple job and does not lend itself to do-it-yourself projects. It is necessary for gas fitting companies to have proper tools and equipment. They also need to know how to operate them. Therefore, they will always suggest to homeowners the best options for them when they find gas leaking.
