Portable gas heaters -- all makes and models; Natural Gas and LPG.

But before warming up, spare a thought for safety. Appliances using gas such as portable gas heaters may be fast and effective but they must be serviced and monitored regularly. Neglecting this important step could have fatal consequences for the home and its occupants. Thankfully, the friendly folk from local gas safety company GasCare are all about saving lives this winter and ensuring a healthy home environment for east Aucklanders. Founded by certiﬁed gasﬁtter Grant Currie, GasCare is not the average gas solutions company and employs a unique approach. “I cannot stress how important safety is,” says Grant, a Pakuranga man with more than 20 years’ industry experience. “Gas is great for cooking and heating but so many ignore the safety aspect until it’s too late. Carbon monoxide is the silent killer.” The trained expert says in other countries laws regarding gas usage are very strict. “Carbon monoxide detectors are compulsory and so are annual safety checks. But here in New Zealand it’s up to individuals to decide to take proper preventative measures.” Having built a strong presence in the eastern suburbs, Grant and his team of experienced gasﬁtters perform safety inspections for residential properties as well as restaurants. They install carbon monoxide detectors and offer servicing of all gas appliances and gas ﬁres. “We check that all pipe work and appliances are in good working condition and not leaking, and we produce a full safety report. Appliances must pass a 12-point safety check in order for them to be deemed functional.” Grant says people cannot afford to be slack about servicing gas appliances. “These must be serviced annually according to gas regulations and appliance manufacturers strongly recommend this.” “The cost of putting these measures in place is nothing compared to what people gain,” he says. “What price do you put on life? I think we all agree that prevention is better than cure.” Time is often a common excuse but not with GasCare. To make it even easier for people to book an appointment, the technologically- savvy team has implemented a fast, efﬁcient online booking system that is simple to use and ensures a quick response time. What’s more, GasCare offers a free quote and initial consultation service so clients fully understand services offered. The team is also generous with advice and are all about educating the public so they can minimise risk and increase gas efﬁciency in their homes. But wait, there’s even more reason to take action now. GasCare is offering a very attractive winter special for the month of June – have your portable gas heater serviced for just $85 inclusive of GST; includes an extensive safety report.
