Who Should You Call For Gas Line Repairs?

Gas line repairs, or installing new gas lines, can fall into a gray area for some homeowners.

Your home’s gas system is not often top of mind, until it needs repair. And when it does need attention, who is the best person to call?

Your Plumber is the Best Place to Start

Licensed plumbers are qualified to repair, replace, and install gas lines in and around your home. HVAC technicians are also qualified, but since plumbers are more familiar with working with pipes, they are the best place to start.

The gas system in your home is more complex than you might think, and working on gas requires knowledge and experience with a variety of safety factors, material types, and specific fittings.

Due to the complexity of gas systems and the safety concerns of poor gas work, it matters who you hire to do the work. A handyman who works on gas lines might not be licensed for the work.

When You Need A New Gas Line

Repairing or replacing existing gas lines is one thing, but what about when you need a new gas line installed?

If you are installing a new range, cooktop, grill, pool heater, outdoor kitchen, or firepit, you might need a new gas line.

This process can be more complicated than just repairing an existing gas line, so be sure you’re calling someone who is up to the task.

How Do You Know If You Have a Gas Leak?

Natural gas is odorless and colorless, so gas companies add chemicals that smell like sulfur or rotten eggs to make gas leaks easier to detect.

If you suspect you have a gas leak, you will want to get it addressed immediately.
