Working with gas is dangerous, that’s why we ensure our Technicians are licensed by Technical Safety BC. A licensed contractor is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Safety Standards Act, all relevant regulations, and all applicable safety orders and directives.
Our gas services cover new gas line installations, upgrades and re-routing, and repairs. We are your local and most trusted company to offer you quality gas services that you can count on.
A carbon monoxide detector plays an important role in ensuring the comfort and safety of your family. They can detect if your home's air ever reaches dangerous levels of CO and alert you immediately. All detectors should be checked by a professional to ensure they are functioning properly, and batteries should be replaced on a regular basis.
We offer smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and a 2 in 1 detector that offers you the same protection wrapped up into one unit. We will gladly check your detectors as part of our Home Safety Inspection.
Although natural gas is considered safe, it is imperative to be aware of any leaks or improperly installed equipment because the carbon monoxide found in gas has potentially fatal results. Fortis BC adds a sulphuric “rotten egg” smell to it to give you a better chance of catching a gas leak and taking action before serious symptoms occur. According to the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs, more than 50 people die every year from CO poisoning in Canada and we want to ensure we do what we can to protect as many people in our community as possible.
Extremely high levels can lead to convulsions and/or coma, and even death. If you think the you’re experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, we suggest going outdoors and call 911 immediately.
