About Gas Line – Installation, Service, and Repair
You have finally decided to replace your electric cook stove with a new gas cook top and stove. Most serious cooks prefer cooking with gas over electricity. When dealing with natural gas or propane, it is a serious matter and should never be done by someone who is not qualified and certified to do this kind of work. In most cities, licensed plumbing contractors are the only people considered qualified by the local municipalities. It is generally necessary for the licensed plumber to “pull a permit” with the city where they are located before doing the work. After installation of the gas line, a city inspector will come and inspect the installation to make sure it was done correctly.
TIPS AND FACTS ABOUT GAS LINE
When adding a new gas line to an existing house’s gas system, it is necessary to determine the total BTU load of the house and then add to that the number of BTU’s you will be adding. The unified plumbing code has a chart that is to be followed to determine how many BTU’s a particular size of pipe can handle. If the original line that you want to add the gas line to is not sized correctly, then it might not be capable of supplying enough BTU’s to all fixtures when needed. If this happened, it could cause serious problems with the operation of all gas appliances on that line. This is one of many reasons why gas lines are to be installed by licensed plumbers only approved by the City.
