Professional Plumbers and Gas Lines
The piping for your home’s water lines and the piping for your home’s gas lines are very similar. They’re made of similar materials and have to be secure to prevent leaks. The main difference is that gas poses much greater risks than water does. Sure, a leaking water pipe is inconvenient and can lead to other damage including mold growth.
But when a gas pipe leaks, your home is at risk of a fire. Plus, natural gas doesn’t have a smell so your family can breathe it in and get sick. So gas lines are more dangerous and require expert care. You can easily repair a leaky pipe in your home, but you shouldn’t attempt to work on your gas lines unless you have the proper certifications. You want to ensure that your gas lines are absolutely secure. There is no room for error when it comes to your family’s safety.
Expanding Your Natural Gas Lines
Have you considered adding additional natural gas appliances to your home? Many homeowners like to explore their options with natural gas because when you lose power due to a natural disaster, your gas lines are often still active. That means you can still use those appliances, like heaters and water heaters. Or maybe you need additional gas lines because you’re replacing existing gas appliances. The newer units may require additional gas power.
Our team can help expand the gas lines in your home. You can upgrade to new appliances that accept gas instead of electricity. Appliances that can work off of natural gas include:
- Water heater
When your gas lines were originally installed there was a certain demand in mind. You can’t install too many gas appliances without expanding your gas line to handle the new load. Too much demand on your natural gas line can lead to increased pressure which in turn causes leaks or appliance malfunctions. Our experts know exactly what they’re doing so you know that the job will be done right the first time. Plus we can expand the lines with little interruption to your daily life.
