Whether you need a single or a multi installation, your peace of mind is important to us. Understanding that your needs change, such as adding on a fireplace or geyser will not mean doing a complete new installation.
Needless to say that adding an additional point means we only have to tap into the existing line – saving you money.
Please find below a list of commonly asked questions. If you find that your question is not answered on this page, please feel free to contact us:
Q: If I want to change my hob, would the gas canister feeding the appliance have to remain outside, or would it be acceptable to have inside?
A: Yes. But you are only allowed to have one 9KG cylinder in the cupboard that is ventilated.
Q: Do gas appliances have to be installed by a specialist, or can a layman (like my hubby who thinks he can do it all) do the installation?
A: No! It has to be installed by a Registered LPG installer. To find out if your installer is registered please visit http://www.lpgas.co.za/installer%20info/ . If your hubby has already attempted an installation and you’re a bit concerned about just how safe it is – feel free to give us a ring and we’ll come fix what he did
Q: How does one ensure that the service provider hired to install the appliance is certified to do so?
A: You can ask the installer for his LPG license card or you can check if he is registered on the LPG Association’s website – http://www.lpgas.co.za/installer%20info/
Q: If I have a leak or gas smell what do I do?
A: Shut off the emergency valve and close the cylinder. Phone your installer to come have a look and repair it for you
