Carbon Monoxide Testing

Fast and Reliable Carbon Monoxide Testing

A carbon monoxide leak is potentially fatal. At Cyber Plumbers, our licensed gas fitters offer thorough carbon monoxide testing to ensure that your home is safe for you and your family.

What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide is a dangerous and sometimes deadly gas. It is silent, colourless and odourless, which is why it is referred to as a silent killer. It is a byproduct of the burning process of gas and wood-powered appliances. With a properly flued heater, or secure ventilation and fittings in any gas appliance or fireplace, most households don’t need to worry about carbon monoxide.

Carbon monoxide, or CO, is actually harmless in most instances. When you’re around a campfire outside there’s plenty of oxygen to balance out the carbon particles. But in a confined space there’s not enough oxygen in the air and you may begin to suffer the side effects.

However, detection is the best form of defence. That can mean buying carbon monoxide detectors or arranging a visit from a professional gas fitter from Cyber Plumbers. Our fully licensed and experienced professionals use the best equipment to test for carbon monoxide and ensure your home is safe.

We operate 24/7, every day of the year, and don’t charge extra fees after hours. So if you suspect you’ve got a carbon monoxide leak, don’t waste any time and call Cyber Plumbers now.

Signs of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide poisoning is hard to detect and difficult to recognise. That’s because the symptoms are very much like the flu or a cold.

However, the side effects can be a lot worse than the common cold. Carbon monoxide poisoning can lead to brain damage and even death.

The common signs and symptoms of CO poisoning include:

  • Headaches
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of consciousness

If you notice everyone in your household, including pets, get flu-like symptoms at the same time, it could well be signs of a carbon monoxide leak. This is why you need to call Cyber Plumbers straight away if you notice any of these signs. It’s better to be safe than sorry – particularly when it comes to your family.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

The greatest danger about carbon monoxide is how undetectable it is, at least to the human eye and nose. Unlike natural gas, which has an added chemical to give it a distinctive odour, carbon monoxide is odourless and colourless.

So if your gas heater or flue has sprung a leak, you’re unlikely to notice it straight away. Unless you’ve taken precautions such as:

  • Getting your gas appliances serviced every two years
  • Scheduling a carbon monoxide test from Cyber Plumbers
  • Checking your appliances regularly
  • Installing carbon monoxide detectors

A carbon monoxide detector is one of the simplest ways to protect your home or work. Much like a smoke detector, it reacts to increased CO levels in the air.

Whenever you have a gas appliance installed by Cyber Plumbers, our professional gas fitter will talk to you about installing a CO detector as well. Not only can we perform our own carbon monoxide testing in your home, we can also hardwire your detector to your electricity (preferably with battery backup) for future safety. It will always be there when you use gas appliances, and will promptly react to any rise in carbon monoxide levels.

Interest Free** Carbon Monoxide Testing

A suspected carbon monoxide leak, which is a genuine home emergency, never happens at a convenient time. Not only will you need to evacuate your home until it’s safe, but it might also be a bad time for you financially.

That’s why Cyber Plumbers offers a range of interest free** payment plans for eligible customers. Your Cyber professional can take you through the easy application process on site and approval usually takes only a few minutes.

You can choose weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments, whatever suits your lifestyle and financial situation, through one of our providers, Humm or Zip.
