Repairing Gas Lines
In some cases, existing gas lines sustain damage that can be fixed without completely replacing the piping. For these situations, a plumber will need to come to your home to locate where the leak exists. At this point, they can repair the issue to ensure that your family is safe from a gas leak. Sometimes, a repair can’t fix the problem safely, however, and you are going to need to have all new gas lines installed.
How Do I Know I Have a Gas Leak?
The telltale sign of a gas leak is the smell of rotten eggs. Sulfur additives in the natural gas cause this unique smell. If you think you have a gas leak, you should turn off the gas to your home and contact a plumber right away.
Why Install New Gas Lines?
You will need to add gas pipes in your home if you purchase new gas appliances. Homes aren’t likely to be piped for gas appliances if they weren’t previously used in the house, which means gas pipes will have to be added to the current layout in your home. When homeowners install new stoves, dryers, water heaters, gas fireplaces, furnace heaters, pool heaters, grills, or fire pits, they might choose an option that requires additional gas piping.
Some homeowners also want to switch from electric to gas completely. This will require a consultation with a plumber to determine if it is an option and how to go about making the switch.
Extending gas lines throughout your home will start with an inspection. The plumber will need to see where they can connect the line to your existing natural gas hook up and where they can run the lines in your home. If you are installing numerous gas-powered appliances at one time, you might need a lot of piping added to the system.
What Does It Cost to Install New Gas Lines?
The cost of installing new gas lines is heavily dependent on the following:
- Type of pipe
- Size of pipe
- Location of pipes
- Number of turns
Between the costs of material and labor, you could be looking at a wide range of costs. To get an estimate, contact Cates Heating and Cooling today to set up a consultation visit.
Hire a Professional Plumber
If you have gas line needs, it is always a good idea to hire a professional plumber to handle the repair or install for you. To perform gas piping work, a plumber must be licensed. Additionally, it is illegal in most places to have an unlicensed person work on gas pipes or gas-powered appliances. The reason a person needs to be licensed is that there are risks associated with improper repairs and installs, such as gas leaks, which pose significant health and safety risks.
