Annual Gas Heater Maintenance

Maintaining your gas heater

To prolong the life of your gas heater and ensure it is operating at its optimum, it is important to maintain and clean it regularly and after a prolonged period of time, to have it serviced.

All Gas heaters come with maintenance guidelines. Heaters that have blockages or have dirty filters may not work properly or efficiently. A gas heater that does not work efficiently may use more energy and cost you more, to run. Always check the website or the owner’s manual that comes with the appliance for information on how to maintain your gas heater.

There are gas heaters that can produce dangerous gas emissions and Carbon monoxide.

People exposed to CO Gas could get symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning such as headaches, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, confusion etc

It is always advisable to have good ventilation when using a gas heater – especially when the heater does not come installed with a vent or flue.

Vented or flued gas heaters are usually installed in bedrooms or bathrooms to ensure that the combusted air is expelled out. This is why a ventless or flueless gas heater CANNOT be installed in bedrooms or bathrooms. Heaters that do not have a flue or a vent may be installed in larger living areas or open plan areas, but you should still ensure there is adequate ventilation to circulate the air and to bring in fresh air.

Check the website for your gas heating appliance for instructions on how to maintain and clean your gas heater yourself. Bromic is available here, Eskabe maintenance and cleaning info is here and Paloma care manuals are here.

Contact HSG Distributors should you need the name of a qualified service centre near you for further assistance.
