Need a gas line to a new appliance? In the kitchen? On the patio? To the fireplace? Thinking of adding an appliance to your home? Here are a few things you should know. The gas system in your home has been sized to supply the appliances when the house was built. Before you add any additional appliances, you must have a professional size the system to know if your piping can handle more demand. Without the proper gas supply to each fixture, your furnace, water heater, kitchen range, and other appliances will not operate efficiently. Gas pipes should be sized by a professional to ensure that appliances are not starving for fuel.
Ask for and demand proper sizing. For your satisfaction and safety, your professional should always provide a permit and inspection when working on gas pipes.
Generally, cities require permits when working on existing and new gas lines. To ensure 100% compliance and safety, always contact a professional plumber for installation, remodeling, repair, replacement, and maintenance of plumbing fixtures and gas line systems. From installation to repair, extreme caution needs to be practiced to promptly detect any dangerous gas leaks.
