Gas Pipe Installation | Requirements
Before installing a gas line, follow these steps:
- Obtain a local permit

When the above requirements are met, we are ready to install your natural gas pipe. These steps are done by a person who is highly trained in all aspects of gas pipe installations. We take special care to ensure this installation does not conflict with current or future plans for the premise.
After installation and hookup, we will perform an additional tes on all connections to be sure there is no leaks. Although we do not sell appliances, we are happy to connect a natural gas pipe to any approved gas appliance. We are proud to offer our residential customers hookups for such things as gas fireplaces, fire pits, outdoor heating, grilles and more.
Gas Line Installations | Natural Gas Ranges
There are specific requirements when connecting a natural gas line to any appliance. Both residential and commercial ranges require detailed steps to install an appliance that will operate correctly and safely. Gas pipes must be specific to the appliance needing a fuel line and hookup. The capacity of the gas appliance and the pressure it needs for safe and optimal operation must be met to provide safe and reliable performance.
While older range models use pilot lights to ignite the burners, today newer stoves have electronic ignitions for safety. This is true whether you are installing a standard stove or a countertop model. For these, having the correct gas pressure and capacity are essential. Natural gas appliances require sufficient capacity in the lines in order to operate efficiently. If gas piping is already in place, we can complete a test to assure the right flow is reaching the appliances. Sometimes, all you need is an adjustment.
