Here’s when it’s time to call out for a gas fitter…
If you need to connect to a gas line – new or existing – then you’re in need of a gas fitter. It’s that simple.
Gas fitters are experts especially trained and licensed in working with all things natural gas including making connections and installing systems and appliances. For bigger projects, like running a new line to new construction, it might be obvious that you need a gas fitter. After all, they’ll be bringing access to the natural gas to the home in the first place. But not all gas fitting projects are that large scale.
On top of emergency situations, appliance maintenance and installation is a large part of what a gas fitter takes care of. That means if you’re upgrading your kitchen with a new range, swapping out your water heater for a more energy efficient one, or your dryer is on the fritz, you’re going to need to call out a gas fitter. Here’s a bigger list of items that a gas fitter will help you with:
- Gas line installation
- Appliance maintenance
- Gas leaks
- Pipe repair
- Pressure regulation
- Gas detection
- Oven and hotplate install
- Flue install and maintenance
- Conversion to natural gas
- Demolition of gas installations
How much does gas fitting cost on the Sunshine Coast
Since gas fitting is an unavoidable task for many cases (see above), many homeowners are left wondering – and worrying – exactly how much it will cost them as an essential service.
That said, there’s no one size fits all cost assessment. That’s because there are a variety of factors that go into calculating the costs. In part, pricing will be a factor of the amount of time it will take for a technician to complete the work. This, in turn, can be affected by things like how poor the condition of your pipes are or how difficult it is for the professional to access the area that needs the work done in the first place.
If you have a gas leak, you should immediately call out for repair. Luckily, many companies will offer 24/7 assistance to help in times of an emergency. However, you might pay an extra fee for an emergency call out that happens off of office hours.
Fees tend to average between $1,000 to $5,000 for a gas fitter on the Sunshine Coast and the surrounds. This is, in part, made up of an hourly rate that varies between $50-$90. The total fee includes labor and parts such as copper piping that is used in repair work. If you’re having a hot water heater installed, for example, you may want to get a custom quote for the work with the unit included to see if you can save.
Does gas fitting take a long time?
Again, this is going to depend on how robust the work is that needs to be done. When there’s an emergency, a gas fitter is going to work as quick and efficiently as they can to locate the source of the leak and implement a repair that will put a stop to it.
Aside from that, how long a job takes is going to depend on what the job is. Connecting a new stove or range could take just an hour or two including set up and clean up. Installing a new hot water heater is a bit more involved, and you might have to wait a full day for the work to be completed, especially if the unit is in a harder to reach place in your home. Gas fitting and installation for a new build can take several days but will be done right from the onset.
How to choose the right gas fitter for your job
First and foremost, you must make sure that anyone you consider is licensed as a gas fitter, not just a plumber. Gas fitting is a specialised and regulated trade, and theses credentials matter immensely. From there, make sure that the company you’re considering offers insurance and a warranty on their work so that you don’t have to worry about workmanship or what happens if an accident occurs. While unlikely, remember that gas fitting is very dangerous work.
As you narrow down your search, here are some questions you can ask gas fitters in Sunshine Coast:
- “How long has your company been in business?”
- “Do you outsource work or employ all of your gas fitters?”
- “Are you registered and licensed with proof of insurance?”
- “What 24/7 services do you offer and are there additional fees?”
- “Are you a member of any alliances or industry associations?”
- “Do you offer free estimates or quotes for projects?”
- “What customer testimonials do you have available?”

Frequently Asked Questions About Gas Fitting In Sunshine Coast
I use LPG instead of natural gas. Do I still need a gas fitter?
Absolutely. LPG, or liquid petroleum gas, is just as dangerous a fuel source as natural gas. It just makes it to your home in a different format. If you want to have LPG connected to your gas appliances (new or existing), you’ll need to call out for a gas fitter.
What is a readily detachable connection and when can I do one myself?
For the most part, you’re going to want to call a gas fitter if you have new equipment or appliances that need to be attached to a gas line. That said, a readily detachable connection is an infrequent exception to that rule, where the connection can be made without release of any gas or fuel that could put you in danger. The best example of this is a replacement cylinder for a barbeque, which can be screwed on and off properly with shut off valves in place. When in doubt, however, call for a quote from a licensed gas fitter.
Is a gas fitter a plumber?
Not necessarily. While you might find that general plumbers can also be gas fitters, and vice versa, they are exclusive of one another with their own separate training and qualifications. Gas fitters have to become specifically licensed for gas fitting which includes specialised education, examinations, insurance, and proof of licensure.
