Gas Fire Heating

Looking after your gas fireplaces

Gas Fire Installation

A gas fireplace is a wonderful addition to any home. Easy to use, low-maintenance, consistent, energy-efficient and with smaller footprints than wood burners, they have many benefits as a heating solution. They are also fast becoming popular across New Zealand. Unlike electric options, they offer the coziness of real flames—without the mess, work, and emissions that come with burning wood.

Installing a gas fireplace requires reliable, experienced tradespeople. Whether you are using reticulated or bottled gas, putting in one of these heating solutions is a specialised job and must be done with an eye to safety.

If you are in the Wellington region and have made the decision to heat your home with gas, get in touch with Garcia Plumbing. As experienced gas fitters, we can get the job done quickly and to a high standard. Get home ready to stay warm throughout the Wellington winter!

Gas Fire Maintenance

A gas fire keeps your home warm and cozy. It’s energy-efficient, cheap to operate, and consistent. For it to stay this way, however, like any gas appliance it requires regular maintenance and servicing.

In the absence of any issues, gas fires should be serviced every two years at most to ensure that they are working well and safely—and that they continue to do so. Your gas fire may also require professional maintenance if: the pilot light won’t stay lit, you can smell gas at any point, there is a lot of soot build-up, or the flame is not consistent and switches on and off. If you are experiencing any of these issues, it’s time to get your fireplace looked at.

For top-notch service, maintenance, and repairs in the Wellington region, call Garcia Plumbing. Our experienced team includes expert gas fitters who can help you to maintain and enjoy your gas fireplace.

Client Reviews

We highly recommend Kieran. He worked with us on a number of jobs for our home. He provided us great advice, and delivered high quality work. Kieran is professional, and friendly.

Would highly recommend Kieran for all your plumbing needs. I have used his services twice. We did a laundry refit and he suggested changes to tidy the existing plumbing work for the washing machine and laundry sink. Also, Kieran installed some drainage outside my house to redirect surface water off my front pathway. Both jobs resulted in tidy and elegant plumbing solutions and we are very satisfied with the end results. Overall, he is great to deal with, very professional and efficient in his work. Would definitely use him again!

I have used Kieran’s plumbing services on many occasions. He removed and relocated a new hot water cylinder, did the plumbing for my kitchen renovation including fitting a sink and installed a vanity and new shower head and mixer in my bathroom. He is very professional, friendly and efficient I was really impressed with the work and how he went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly and I got what I want.

We have used Kieran’s services (both gas and plumbing) a number of times over the years to help find and address leaks on our property, for refitting of kitchen and bathroom when renovating and for installation of infinity systems for both our house and unit. He is friendly, trustworthy, efficient and considerate and we have always found him to do a great job, with great communication before and after the job is done. Thanks for all your hard work, Kieran!
