  • Gas Hot Water Systems – Storage, continuous flow, & gas-boosted solar.

All gas installations and fit-outs in NSW must be undertaken by a licensed gas fitter as defined in the Home Building Act 1989. Details are accessible from the NSW Government Fair Trading website and upon request from Mates Rates Plumbing.

DIY gas installations for appliances are illegal in Australia, as is the importation of any gas appliance that has not been certified as compliant with Australian standards and marked with an Australian-recognised certification label. $2,750.00 fines apply to individuals in NSW for each offence, and their building insurance will be void.

Gas Ovens, the Secret of Moist Cooking

Modern gas ovens heat up much more quickly than their electric counterparts. In turn, gas stoves are a lot quicker to turn off and cool down too. Because of this, they use substantially less energy and resources.

Most significantly, a gas range creates a wetter ‘moist cooking’ environment, a term often used to describe a baking process that will not dry out your food as much as if it were cooked (at the same temperature) in an electric oven. Mates Rates can handle gas appliance installations so you can enjoy moist cooking in no time.

Energy-Efficient Gas Heating

Energy-efficient natural gas heating delivers fast, controllable heat throughout your home and is effective on the coldest winter’s evening. Mates Rates can recommend and fit any one of your gas heating options to heat any room or rooms to a desired temperature and keep it there. Gas heating saturates a room quickly and more completely, so no matter how chilly it gets outside, you’ll never again have to huddle around an electric bar heater to try and get warm.

Ducted Whole Home Gas Heating

Ducted home gas heating is the inconspicuous alternative if you prefer not to have a physical fireplace. Ducting distributes heat throughout your home to selected zones at the touch of a button. The gas installations for this heating are done under the floor or on the roof of houses built on a concrete slab. The heating unit can be installed outside if there is insufficient space because of a very low roofline. Ductwork that connects the outlets to the heating unit is neatly tucked away out of sight.

Fixed and Flued Gas Space Heaters

Permanently installed gas space heating is flued to draw in and heat fresh air, then circulate warm, clean air into your home or commercial premises. Gas emissions are ducted outside via their flue, making gas heating ideal for those susceptible to allergies or respiratory problems as they create zero emissions.

There are a vast variety of attractive styles, some with real flame-simulated logs and coal fires that never need you to split logs or collect and burn fossil fuel!

Portable Un-flued Gas Heating

A portable gas heater is easy to move between any room with a gas bayonet fitting, plus you can pack it away in summer when you do not need it. You can also take it with you if you decide to move house.

More recently, stylish outdoor gas heaters have become popular as they add a distinct touch of style to your outdoor entertaining. A gas bayonet fitting can simply do away with LPG gas bottles for your BBQ, pizza oven, and smoker. Just ask Mates Rates how an exterior bayonet fitting can revolutionise your outdoor leisure and dining.

Gas Hot Water

If you have ever enjoyed gas hot water, you will never want anything else. Mates Rates can check and service all leading gas water heater brands, repair leaky valves, or replace older units with the latest energy-efficient model best suited to your family’s needs. Our expert gas installations ensure the best performance.

Storage Gas Water Heaters

Storage gas water heaters provide mains pressure hot water to many taps or showers simultaneously. The most critical selection criteria for your next gas storage hot water heater is matching its storage capacity to the needs of your family now and for as long as the next 15 years. The volume of liquids on hand is expressed in litres (L); domestic unit sizes vary from around 100 L to 400 L. Compact lower capacity units are easily installed internally where hot water consumption is modest, whilst larger storage capacities are ideal for bigger families or where your hot water demands are heavy. Also, check each heater’s energy star rating as it not only identifies the unit’s economy but the heating element's efficiency that dictates the all-important water temperature recovery period.

While many have electronic thermostats and ignition systems, some storage heaters are wholly gas requiring no power point, so your warm water will continue, even with no power. Mates Rates has all the information you need to make your hot water choice easier.

For those seeking the most economical, energy-efficient, and reliable approach to your home’s hot water, a gas-boosted solar storage hot water system offers an ecological alternative that reduces your carbon footprint, lowers your energy bills, and never compromises on reliable warm water year-round.

Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water

Among the benefits of continuous flow water heaters is the absence of a relatively bulky storage tank. Continuous flow gas hot water systems are compact, easily installed internally, and can be effortlessly hidden away outdoors.

Their real popularity is based on the fact that your hot water supply never runs out, as mains pressure water is heated instantaneously upon demand and continues until the tap or your shower is turned off.

Gas-boosted continuous flow hot water combines the ecological benefits of using the sun’s radiation to heat your water with the convenience of a reliable and inexpensive gas-fueled backup.

Water heating is our largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for around 23% of the average Australian household’s emissions. By upgrading to one of the environmentally endorsed gas hot water systems, you will save money and be doing your bit for the environment.

Mates Rates offers expert gas installations to ensure you get the best performance and efficiency from your gas appliances.

Gas Refrigeration & Freezers

Gas is an alternative to electricity for fridges and freezers too. Commonplace in remote and isolated locations, they are an alternative worthy of consideration in both commercial and domestic applications.

Gas installations of refrigerators in motorhomes, caravans, and portable site accommodation are frequently out of use for extended periods and should be checked regularly to ensure safe operation. Mates Rates ensures these gas installations are performed safely and efficiently.

I smell gas!

Gas has an odour that you are probably familiar with. The odour is added as a safety precaution, so when you hear someone say “I smell gas,” it’s not actually the gas they are smelling at all, as natural gas is odourless. What you smell is an added chemical odour to alert people to a gas build-up.

Over time, joints in gas lines and seals in gas appliances can deteriorate, causing gas to leak into your home or business. If you can smell gas in the air, the breach must be located and fixed as quickly as possible by a Mates Rates licensed gas fitter who specialises in gas installations.

Whenever there is a strong smell of gas by your metre or cylinder, or you become aware of damaged gas pipes on a property or street, you should call the gas emergency number. If there has been an explosion or fire, or you smell gas in a highly populated area like a shopping centre or school, quickly call the gas emergency number 13 19 09 and assist people to leave the immediate area.

For major incidents where there is a risk to life or property, call 000 (Triple Zero) immediately.
