Everything You Need to Know About Commercial Gas Fitting

When it comes to working in a commercial space, you may not often realise how many appliances and areas use gas. From hot water in schools and offices, to gas cooking equipment in commercial kitchens and even outdoor heating solutions – gas is everywhere.

It’s commonly thought that plumbing and gas fitting are the same job – but just because a lot of  gas fittings include a plumbing element, it doesn’t mean that a plumber is qualified to carry out these jobs.

What’s the Difference Between Commercial Plumbing & Commercial Gas Fitting?

A commercial plumber will engage in all your non-gas related jobs such as backflow testing, installing and maintaining grease traps, water metering and installing commercial bathrooms and kitchens.

A licensed commercial gas fitter works with all gas installations including heating, hot water and sanitation.

So for example, if you’re getting a commercial kitchen set up and you need someone to double check that the gas line to your stove top is in shape, a plumber alone can’t do this and you’ll need to call a commercial plumber/gas fitter as well.

At Emu Plumbing, our commercial plumbing team are also licensed and experienced commercial gas fitters. So that you only need one plumbing and gas team for your entire commercial plumbing project – saving you time and money.

Because many plumbing jobs include gas appliances or gas hot water, it’s often assumed that a commercial plumber is able to do it all. But that’s not always the case, so you need to be sure that you’re not wasting your resources on the wrong person for the job and potentially putting yourself and team at risk.

When it’s Time to Get in a Commercial Gas Fitter

A licensed gas fitter is trained to work on a range of different gas systems including LPG & Natural Gas, pipework, gas appliance installation and repair, gas conversions and repairs to gas leaks.

If you’re having trouble with your gas cooking appliances – from small cookers and stovetops to larger industrial appliances, a plumber might not have the right qualifications to help you solve the issue.

If you need a new hot water system set up or it just needs a service or repair, a commercial gas fitter is the right person to call.

If you’re fitting out a new kitchen and you need a new gas connection from the natural gas meter or LPG bottles, or even just to ensure your current gas connections are up to standard, a commercial gas fitter can get the job done.

If you’re looking for someone to repair a gas leak in your workplace or kitchen then you’ll need a commercial gas fitter.

  • “They did a very thorough, excellent job, with photographic evidence, were very reasonably priced and very professional”

    I needed to call an emergency plumber on a Saturday afternoon for issues at the office where I work in Kingsford Smith Drive in Eagle Farm. I called two local after-hours plumbers without success. Emu answered on the first ring although already busy with a job down the road. They estimated they would be finished with the current job and would be at the office by 4.30 pm which they were. They did a very thorough, excellent job, with photographic evidence, were very reasonably priced and very professional/ I would highly recommend them and use their services again without hesitation.

  • “The team arrived on time and completed their work with obvious care and skill”

    We are extremely happy with the work of the team.  Alistair, Niall and Tye arrived on time and completed their work with obvious care and skill.  They were happy to show us the progression of the work and left the site clean and tidy.  Also, The guy who did the initial inspection and quote displayed similar professionalism (sorry I didn’t remember his name).  They are all a credit to your firm.

  • “In a league of your own! ”

    Both Iréna and I wish to convey our most sincere thanks for you and your team’s swift and professional resolution to our recent plumbing challenges. We could not praise Alistair and Niles more highly for their incredible technical capabilities, their client focus and their well developed interpersonal and communication skills.

    It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with such a progressive organization as Emu Plumbing. What this rather long-running issue that we have been grappling with over several years, and having engaged numerous other “so-called plumbing professionals”, has proven to us is that there are plumbers and then there is your team….in a league of your own!

  • “Honest and upfront on saving me money”

    Professional and polite tradesmen. Honest and upfront on saving me money by suggesting alternative solution (dig up ended up being cheaper than reline). Will definitely use them again in future.

    I was impressed with them providing photos of the job as it progressed all packaged up.

  • “Tony and his team are brilliant”

    If you are reading these reviews, trying to find an honest and reliable team, Emu Plumbing won’t let you down. Tony and his team are brilliant, they cleared and patched a severely broken storm water pipe under our carport. Niles & Jason were on time, professional and left the site clean and tidy. Can’t recommend highly enough! Thanks Tony

  • “Absolutely amazing and very helpful”

    We were in a situation where we needed a gas technician to come and assess if there was a gas leak at our property where a previous technician has disconnected our gas cylinder and therefore had no gas for hot showers etc. The team at Emu were absolutely amazing and very helpful when I rang them and told them about our situation. A technician was organised to come out and he managed to fix the problem.

    It’s nice to know that humanity still exists and that they helped as soon as they could, at a reasonable price too! A huge Thank You to the great team at Emu (Shakira, Nials and Tony), we will definitely recommend your business to others as well!
