Gas Line Repair & Installation
Gas lines bring clean-burning and efficient natural gas to your furnace, water heater, stove and other home appliances. It is cost effective, reliable and relatively green. While approximately half of US homes use natural gas for heating and cooking, natural gas can be dangerous. Installing or repairing natural gas piping should be left to a professional.
Understanding the Dangers of Gas
When installed properly, natural gas is extremely safe. The danger lurks when left to an amateur and hooked up improperly. There are two concerns to be aware of with natural gas: Carbon Monoxide poisoning and gas line leaks.
- Carbon Monoxide Poisoning – Carbon monoxide poisoning can happen when a gas line is installed improperly or an appliance is not burning natural gas correctly. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas that is heavier than air and can sicken and even kill occupants in a home. To be safe, every home should have a carbon monoxide detector, similar to a smoke detector.
- Gas Line Leaks – A gas line leak happens when there is a breach in the gas line or the line is not installed properly. Natural gas smells a bit like a “rotten egg,” and is extremely flammable. If you smell gas, turn off the flow immediately or quickly exit the house and call the utility company.
Gas Line Repair and Installation
There are two main types of natural gas line, hard piping and flexible piping. Flexible piping is less labor intensive to install, but is more costly than hard piping. Levine & Sons is happy to install either type in your home or hook up a new appliance at your convenience.
