Carbon Monoxide Testing

The Victorian Government has issued a safety alert about the potential health risks of Vulcan Heritage and Pyrox Heritage heaters producing high levels of carbon monoxide.

Aqueous Motion is a licensed gasfitter, and is able to check all Heritage heaters in your homes or rental properties,  either advising you that the heater cannot be used, or a certificate of safety with a time stamped printed report to advise that it is safe. Carbon Monoxide testing can and does save lives. As carbon monoxide is not visible and does not have an odore, it is known as the silent poison. If you have gas appliances in your house or rental then you are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

We specialise in carbon monoxide testing and compliance reports. We service home ownerslandlords, tenants and businesses.
