A Comprehensive Guide to Gas Lines

You thought you were insane, but no, you did hear hissing noise coming from the wall. Could there be a gas leakage?

Utilizing gas can assist in saving you loads of money; however, you need to act quick if you believe a leak in your gas line. Recent reports show that a gas line repair service sets you back around $25 per foot! If you want a gas line installed in your house, it could cost you well above $2,000

Should you install a gas line to avoid these costs? Could you DIY the repair service as well to save a few hundred or thousand dollars?

We searched the most effective resources to come up with a fast guide to installing a new gas line for your Sugar Land house. Continue reading to discover everything you need to know prior to choosing whether to hire a professional or attempting to complete the job, by yourself.

DIY Gas Line?

The short response is, yes, you could DIY a gas line repair service or installment, yet you should not do it unless you have experience with this type of repair. Installing a gas line is extremely dangerous as gas explosions are a serious risk and harm to the community

Doing any kind of work with a gas line presents many safety concerns. While there are building codes to utilize as guidelines; but incorrectly installing a gas line could lead to disaster.

If you don't have experience fixing gas lines on your own, search for a local Sugar Land company that has experience with gas lines. While it may cost you a bit more, it will ensure you are not in danger. Likewise, these companies follow all the applicable Sugar Land and/or county codes.

Where is the gas line?

The first step in locating your gas line is turning it off at the shut off valve. This will ensure there are no leaks. There are 2 valves on your gas line, so be sure to shut down the valve on the "residence side". Do not shut off the street-side (or main) valve unless you have someone from the public utility company.

If you follow the gas line to where it initially enters your residence, you need to locate the "house side" shutoff. Ensure you secure the shutoff valve before starting any type of service work.

Tips for Gas Line Installation in Sugar Land

Again, repairing or installing a gas line in your home is a dangerous task. If you plan on tackling your gas line repairs yourself, these tips should help keep you safe:

  • Buy pipes in the correct size for your system
  • Use flexible pipes to connect to appliances
  • Be sure the pipes are airtight before turning the gas back on
  • Once you're done, test the line by turning on the gas and checking for leaks

Remember, if you feel nervous about attempting a gas line repair, or need emergency repair service, call your Sugar Land 1800 Plumber.
