Water Heater Gas Line Installation in South Florida

banner

Baby Playing With Foam While Taking Bath With MotherGas water heaters heat water faster and are less expensive to operate than electric models. Because gas units have faster recovery times, that means you won’t have to worry about running out of hot water if you and someone else in your home need it simultaneously for an extended period of time.

However, if the line that feeds your unit is not properly installed, you won’t be able to enjoy all the benefits gas water heaters offer. That’s why you need to go with the experts at Reliable Gas Services. We will make sure that your water heater lines are safe so that you can enjoy worry-free performance.

Why You Need a Professional for Water Heater Gas Line Installation in South Florida

While you could conceivably perform this type of job on your own, you would need to have a great deal of experience and be very handy with tools. Even a small mistake could damage your water heater, or worse yet, lead to a potentially deadly gas leak. There are several steps that need to be taken in order to make sure that a water heater gas line installation is done properly. Here are just a few of them:

  • It will likely be necessary to dig a trench between your water heater and tank. The trench may need to be a foot or more, depending on local regulations.
  • You’ll also need to know how to properly vent the system so that you will not be at risk for accumulation of dangerous carbon monoxide gases that could be fatal.
  • The gas line connections will need the appropriate valves and regulators so that gas can be safely supplied to the unit, and so you will be able to shut off the supply should an emergency arise. This can be difficult for the average do-it-yourselfer.
  • You’ll need to know how to pressure test the gas lines without blowing the regulator. Most of the kinds of pipe fittings you can find in your area hardware store will not be approved for gas lines. For example, galvanized plumbing fittings can easily corrode when they react with gas.

These are just a few of the challenges that are associated with installing a gas line, whether it’s for a water heater or some other appliance. You will be much better off having a trained professional take care of the work for you. Call Reliable Gas Services today to schedule an appointment.
