Here we cover all you need to know about carbon monoxide testing, including recognizing its poisoning symptoms and the importance of gas appliance testing and servicing.  

It is important to understand the significance of carbon monoxide testing. Carbon monoxide is a silent and deadly gas that can be produced by faulty gas appliances, such as heaters, stoves, and water heaters. Eastside’s carbon monoxide testing can help detect the presence of this deadly gas in your home or workplace.  

Recognising the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning is crucial, as it can lead to serious health complications, including brain damage and even death. By using a carbon monoxide detector, you can ensure the safety of your home or workplace.  

It’s also important to note that regular gas appliance testing and servicing is necessary to prevent Carbon Monoxide leaks. A gas heater safety check is a way to ensure the safety of your heating system. If Carbon Monoxide is detected in your home, immediate action is necessary. It’s advised to evacuate the area and call professionals to handle the situation. Don’t wait until it’s too late, invest in Carbon Monoxide testing and stay safe. 

What is Carbon Monoxide Testing?

Carbon monoxide testing is the process of detecting the presence of this gas in your home or business. You can’t see, smell or taste it – but it is highly toxic to people and animals. 

How We Use a Carbon Monoxide Detector

We use advanced carbon monoxide detectors to check the air quality in your home or business. Our detectors are highly sensitive and can detect even small amounts of carbon monoxide gas. Our experts will place the detector in areas where carbon monoxide is likely to accumulate, such as near gas appliances and heating systems. 

How to Recognize Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. Prolonged exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide can be fatal. It is essential to recognize the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning to prevent serious health complications. This can affect your family and your pets. 

Why Gas Appliance Testing and Servicing is Important

Gas appliances, such as heaters, boilers, and stoves, can produce carbon monoxide gas if not maintained and serviced regularly. Our expert plumbers provide comprehensive gas appliance testing and servicing to ensure your appliances are operating safely and efficiently. Regular maintenance and servicing of gas appliances can prevent carbon monoxide leaks and ensure the safety of your family and home. We recommend a service and safety check every year. 

How to Recognize Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

A gas heater safety check is a comprehensive inspection of your gas heater to ensure it is operating safely and efficiently. Our experienced plumbers will check the heater’s flue, ventilation, burners, and safety controls to identify any faults or issues that could lead to carbon monoxide leaks.

How Carbon Monoxide Testing Works

Understanding the process can empower you to make informed decisions about your safety when it comes to carbon monoxide detection. At Eastside Plumbing, we use a multi-step approach to ensure the most accurate results.

Initial Assessment

Before we begin the testing, our professional plumbers initially assess your property. This helps us identify potential hotspots where carbon monoxide will likely accumulate, such as near gas appliances and heating systems

State-of-the-Art Equipment

We employ advanced carbon monoxide detectors that are highly sensitive and can detect even trace amounts of the gas. These detectors are calibrated to meet industry standards, ensuring the highest level of air quality assessment.

Placement and Monitoring

The detectors are strategically placed in areas identified during the initial assessment. They are then monitored for a specific period to collect data on air quality and potential carbon monoxide levels.

Data Analysis

Once the monitoring period is over, the data is carefully analysed. If elevated levels of carbon monoxide are detected, immediate safety measures are taken, and further gas appliance testing may be recommended

Comprehensive Reporting

After the testing is complete, we provide a detailed report outlining the air quality in your home or business, any detected levels of carbon monoxide, and recommended safety measures. This report serves as a valuable resource for maintaining a safe environment.

Follow-Up Services

We don’t just leave you with a report; we offer follow-up services to address any issues. Whether it’s additional gas appliance testing or installing new safety measures, we’re committed to your well-being.

We couldn’t be more pleased with our initial experience and the service provided by Eastside Plumbing and Gasfitting over the last week. Had two emergencies in one week at busy times of day (4pm one day), gave them a try, and was able to rely on them to promptly attend, provide an extremely professional service, and at a reasonable price. The follow-up report and customer service are excellent; on each occasion, we received photos of the problem as well as a report. They don’t just talk the talk when it comes to service. I will definitely use them again.
