Most homeowners think of plumbing as a profession that deals with drainage, sewer and water systems. But that’s only half the story! There’s much more to this line of service – and one of the specialties in the field is natural gas or propane piping.
The natural gas or propane you use to heat your home and power a wide range of appliances like a water heater, barbeque, cooker, etc., are also a part of your plumbing system – one that needs to be carefully installed and maintained. If you’ve noticed a leak, encountered an issue with your gas lines, it may be time to bring in a professional.
Gas Plumbing Repair
One of the most dangerous things that can happen in your home is a gas leak. It can lead to respiratory problems, vomiting, headaches, fire accidents, explosions and more. Gas leaks cannot be ignored — you need to get them repaired as soon as you can! Signs of a gas leak include:
- A scent of Sulfur or rotten eggs
- Dying or wilted plants
- A hissing sound (gas escaping through tiny openings)
When you notice a gas leak or other deficiencies that can compromise the safety your home or business using natural gas, you’ll need to cut the supply of the gas at the meter or propane tank. Once you’ve successfully shut off the gas and the emergency has passed, call in an experienced gas plumber, like the dedicated experts at Justin Dorsey Plumbing, to check things out and repair your gas lines.
Gas Plumbing Installations
When it comes to your home or business, there’re few things more important than getting your gas pipes and appliances installed properly. Whether you’re remodeling your home or you’ve just moved into an older house, if you find you need to reinstall gas pipes, add new appliances, or install a gas system to supply multiple appliances like barbeques, fire pits, and pool heaters, gas installations are not something to take lightly. And since natural gas pipes and appliances are potentially dangerous if not installed correctly, it makes sense to choose a professional gas plumber for your home needs.
To avoid compromising your and your loved ones’ safety, you should always leave your gas fitting and repairs to professionals. A qualified plumber is responsible for repairing, extending and installing gas lines and associated appliances. A plumber will install the system correctly to safely power your gas appliances and advise you on the best way to re-route your gas pipes, especially if you’re planning on:
- Remodeling or expanding your kitchen
- Relocating or remodeling your laundry room
- Converting your fireplace to gas
- Adding new gas fitting or additional space to your home that will use gas heating.
