Gas Fitting Service

It is important that you have your installer take out a gas permit for the installation of any new gas appliance. There is absolutely no advantage for you not to have a permit for the job or to not have it inspected.

DON’T TAKE CHANCES!

It is important that you have your installer take out a gas permit for the installation of any new gas appliance. There is absolutely no advantage for you not to have a permit for the job or to not have it inspected.

A new Barbecue line will either be run from the gas meter or the furnace room. Occasionally we may be able to run from another gas line such as a dryer or a fireplace but usually these lines do not have enough capacity for a barbecue to be added.

Gas Dryers, Barbeques Ranges, Cooktops, Pool Heaters, Fireplaces and Gas Patio Heaters all require the necessary calculation to confirm pipe sizing. Careful consideration is also required to follow the Manufacturer’s recommendations and best practices to meet local code requirements.

It is against the law not to take a gas permit for any gas line work or gas appliance installation in Winnipeg.  If you run across an installer that doesn’t want to take out a gas permit, you should definitely look elsewhere.

Relocate or Remove Gas Appliances

Please do not DIY with gas 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1 in 3 people say they would relocate or remove a gas appliance themselves to save money. In the right hands, gas is safe, but badly fitted and poorly serviced gas connections can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. You may think you know what you’re doing but it’s not near as safe as working on plumbing. It is seriously dangerous to DIY with gas and could put your family’s life at risk.

Only registered A or B Gas licensed technicians have the required skills to do this safely.

Call Tradesman Mechanical for help with your gas piping or appliance removal or relocation work.

Fire Paramedic Inspections
Annual Fire Paramedic Inspections (Commercial)

DO YOU HAVE YOUR FIRE SAFETY STICKER?

With the exception of a one or two family dwelling, every fuel fired heating system must be re-inspected annually (Gas Furnaces, Boilers, Unit Heater & Rooftop HVAC Equipment). Upon inspection of this equipment, a proper fire safety sticker must be placed on the unit to indicate that your heating system has been properly inspected.

The office of the Fire Commissioner has taken up the responsibility to enforce this requirement [City of Winnipeg Bylaw No. 150/2004 (amended 157/2006), section 2.6]. The Fire Commissioner’s office is also licensing all certified gas service personnel internally and separately from The Department of Labor.

All of our service technicians at Tradesman Mechanical are required to have this “dual certification”. If you are unsure of your situation, please call us for more information.
