When all else fails, slap a bit of cardboard on and silicone it up (apparently)!
Unfortunately, we see a lot of dodgy workmanship.
We were called out to do a routine heater service in Torquay recently and we came across this little ripper.
The return air cover plate on the ducted heating unit had been replaced by a piece of cardboard, siliconed and screwed to the side!!
Um, my children would know better - and a tradesperson DEFINITELY should know better.
Play it safe with gas and have your gas heaters serviced and safety checked by a gasfitter licenced in Type A Gas Appliance Servicing – not by a kinder kid with a bit of scrap paper and clag.
