If you follow this blog, then you would have seen last week’s post that looked at the many benefits of connecting your home to gas. And, perhaps you may even be considering making the switch yourself.
Whether you’re looking to switch from electricity to gas or building or renovating, connecting a home to gas is always a good thing. It’s better for the environment and offers long-term savings. However, as mentioned in last week’s article, the upfront installation costs are more expensive. But how much more?
As gas fitters ourselves, we are well equipped to answer this question as well as provide you with all the associated costs of fitting a home with gas.
So how much does a Gas Fitter Cost?
If you’re looking for a fixed set price for gas fitting, it doesn’t exist. The cost of a gas fitter depends on various factors, including whether it’s a new home or renovation, the accessibility, the location and the type of gas fitting work required. Other factors that determine the cost include the number of gas outlets, the amount of pipework, and the type of walls (plasterboard, VJ board, brick, etc.).
Given the fact that there is no fixed cost for gas fitting work, how do you then go about getting an estimate for budgets? Well, there are a few ways to go about this. You can work on a per hour cost basis or a quote basis.
After inspecting the site and taking into account all the mentioned factors above, good gas fitters in Auckland, including iSpecialise, should be able to provide a fixed price quote on gas installations. Alternatively, they should be able to provide you with an hourly rate, excluding fittings and parts.
