Many homeowners choose to use a natural gas pipe line installation instead of electricity in order to save money, since installing a natural gas pipe line offers a more affordable way to power household appliances like dryers, grills, water heaters, and stoves.
Because natural gas is a fuel that’s highly flammable, gas line installation is not a DIY project for non-professionals. It can be very dangerous to attempt to install a gas pipe line yourself if you’ve never done it before.
Once our licensed specialists have installed your gas line, we can help you to install your new appliances, from gas ranges to water heaters and more. If you think this choice might be right for you and your home, contact our specialists at OSP Plumbing and we will determine if gas line installation works for your Las Vegas property.
When Is It Time To Repair Or Replace Your Gas Pipe Line?
Gas pipe line repair is not something to wait on. It can be very dangerous to procrastinate when it comes to natural gas. But how do you know when it’s time for a gas pipe line repair? Here are some signs:
- Corrosion Or Rust (Often At The Joints)
- Pinched Or Cracked Lines
- Dizziness, Nausea, Or Fatigue For No Reason
- Appliances Not Working As Efficiently
- Unexplained Increase In Gas Bill
If you’re experiencing any of these signs, it may indicate it’s time for a gas line repair. Be sure to call a professional service like OSP Plumbing for this. Sometimes it’s not that easy to find exactly where the leak is coming from—and the longer you wait, the more problems you may have.
The Importance Of Understanding Gas Leaks
Natural gas doesn’t have an odor, but when you decide to have a gas line installation, a smell is typically added so that homeowners can tell if there’s a leak. Even so, however, not all gas leaks are obvious. A slow leak is usually next to unnoticeable.
Because any gas leak has the potential to cause major damage, it’s crucial to understand how to handle them. If you think you may have one, don’t turn on any appliances, don’t light any fires, and leave your house. Then call a professional who can figure out what’s going on and determine if your current gas pipe line is damaged and leaking.
Flexible Gas Pipe Line Installation
OSP Plumbing offers corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) for gas line installation. This type of installation is becoming more common in residences and commercial buildings, with the big differences from traditional gas line installation being the price and the time it takes to install.
It’s also exactly what its name is—flexible! This type of tubing can be bent and conformed by hand, allowing it to be installed much like pulling electrical wire. Flexible gas pipe lines are also easy to cut, they weigh much less than traditional gas pipes, they require no threading or welding, and they require no special tools to seal the fittings. Flexible gas lines have been installed in millions of homes, and are widely gaining popularity.
