What is a Gas Line?
A gas line is a pipe that carries natural gas. While there are main gas lines that carry natural gas from a processing plant to homes, businesses and other facilities, there are gas lines within these structures that transport gas as well. These gas lines are connected to an outside meter and take the gas to a number of different locations and appliances.
Gas lines are common in residential settings and can be used for a variety of purposes. Using gas inside of a home is attractive to homeowners because of its versatility and fairly cheap cost. Natural gas can be used for cooking, heating and to power certain appliances like clothes dryers, water heaters and more. Furthermore, natural gas gas is often used to provide heat to commercial, medical and educational facilities. Many industrial facilities also use natural gas in numerous heating processes.
Never attempt to install or repair a gas line, as this is extremely dangerous work. It should only be performed by someone who has proper training, as one mistake could lead to a natural gas leak, which could be deadly. It is for this reason that you should call Plumbers 911 when you have any questions regarding your gas line.
Installing a Gas Line
Gas line installation should only be performed by someone who is trained and certified to work on gas lines. While a natural gas company often deals with the lines buried underground, a plumber is responsible for installing and repairing the lines within a building. Plumbers 911 professionals are trained and certified to install and work on gas lines in their respective states.
Oftentimes, when a new gas line needs to be installed it is because a home is being converted from one heating source such as electric to natural gas. Other times, it is due to the location of a stove or oven, dryer hot water tank, tankless water heater or furnace being moved or installed.
If you have an appliance that needs connected to natural gas, an oven, dryer or some other appliance, be sure to contact Plumbers 911 for expert help.
