What our customers say about us

We take great pride in ensuring the type of service that leads to these quality reviews!
  • I am delighted with the fireplace itself.
    "I would like to pass on to you my glowing praise for Kim Schmidt of Sure Fire Gas Services for his installation of my new gas fireplace. He evidently encountered some unforeseen problem, and worked diligently, methodically, and painstakingly for many hours to complete the job, after which he thoroughly cleaned up, vacuuming the entire working area. He maintained the highest standards of professionalism throughout. I am delighted with the fireplace itself. Kim explained the operation of the thermostat and maintenance of the fireplace; it all seems pretty straightforward."

A company of this calibre is rare find I would highly recommend them to anyone requiring their service."

  • you helped walk me through what I needed to do.
    "I am very happy that you have been looking after my fireplaces for the last 11 years. But I am so thankful for your attention the other day when you helped me over the phone. You knew I was intimidated and scared but in your patient and kind way, you helped walk me through what I needed to do to get my fireplace lit after it blew out in the wind storm. Now I am nice and warm and sitting back enjoying my fireplace, (which looks really good, by the way) also warmed by the fact that there are still nice guys out there that are not about taking advantage of us. Thank you, Kim, for the excellent service."

Energy Monitoring Systems

With rising energy costs pushing strata budgets to the brink, more and more Strata Corporations are looking for ways to save money and control costs. Our goal is to assist you in reducing your natural gas bill by as much as 30% and we have guaranteed solutions to help you achieve this. Lower gas costs, mean lower strata fees.

NATURAL GAS ENERGY MONITORS

By using a natural gas metering system you can quantify exactly how much gas you use. When you know what your usage patterns are for natural gas, you can target ways to save. The system essentially operates like a clock, counting how much time you use. The run time device is installed under each fireplace or any gas appliance. Your usage is recorded and sent by a wireless mesh network to a central data storage centre. Sure Fire Gas Services uses ZigBee™ radios to communicate monitored data using an open published communications protocol. Any product that uses ZigBee™ protocol to communicate can send its data over any ZigBee™ network.

By simply using wireless technology, a typical strata with 60 gas fireplaces could save over $250,000 in 10 years, including the cost of the installed system and maintenance.

WHY USE ENERGY MONITORS?

It's simple: if you don't use energy monitors, you are losing money!

Water Metering Systems

Historically, property managers absorbed the cost of water because there was no efficient way of tracking and charging residents for their actual water consumption. Most property owners include the price of water within a residents' monthly rent, but this practice discourages residents from saving water, costing owners money and wasting a precious natural resource.

The systems we use are wireless, utilizing cutting edge technology, measuring precisely flow and domestic hot water energy at each entry point into a unit. Meters may be installed at the hot water heater or at each hot and cold water feed. They also utilize 'continuous low flow' alarms that are used to identify leaks. The microprocessor in every meter is constantly looking for this condition, which is reported along with consumption data.

Residents who are most concerned over their expenses can use this data to maximize savings. We will install the system, read the meters and provide you with the data so that costs may be divided up fairly and accurately.

WHY USE WATER METERS?

It's simple: if you don't use water meters, you are losing money!
