In South Africa, it’s quite common for people to hire gas suppliers. Whether you need gas bottles to cook in your home or run a large restaurant, gas suppliers can help. However, it can be hard to decide who to hire. There are so just so many gas suppliers that it can feel overwhelming. Particularly if you are unfamiliar with the gas industry, you likely won’t even know what questions to ask to determine which gas supplier is a good fit. If you are in the market for new gas suppliers, use these three tips:

Check the gas supplier qualifications

It’s important that gas suppliers are qualified to not only provide you with gas, but also perform gas installations. Gas installations can be very dangerous and should only be performed by someone who knows exactly what they’re doing. You should only hire gas suppliers who are registered natural gas and LP gas installers.

Ask your gas supplier if they are certified

Certifications are important. In South Africa, the Southern African Gas Association (SAGA) is the leading authority on gas installations, gas suppliers, and gas safety. The most reputable gas suppliers in the country have a Certificate of Conformity (COC) from SAGA. This guarantees that they are registered and qualified to both supply and install gas.

Inquire about the size of gas bottles available

The size of gas bottle you will need depends on what you will be using it for. At Whitelaw Plumbing and Gas, we are able to supply 9, 19, and 48 kg gas bottles.
