Hook-Ups for Gas Lanterns and Tiki Torches in South Florida

tk-1-p_double_lit_kailuana_564x750Gas lanterns and tiki torches not only add to the appearance of your property, they also make you and all of your guests safer by illuminating the outside areas of your home when you have people over. In order that your lanterns and tiki torches work the way they should, have a professional with Reliable Gas Services install them.

What to Expect During Your Gas Lantern Line Installation in South Florida

In most areas, building codes require a licensed technician to install the gas line that will power your new lantern. This ensures that your light will not only work properly, but will also be safe. When you call Reliable Gas to perform your installation, here are some of the steps that we typically follow on this sort of job:

  • We always make sure that all of the parts we use conform to industry standards.
  • We will use the proper tubing to make sure the installation is as safe as possible, and we will make sure all hook-ups are performed within the height, depth and width of your lantern’s mounting box.
  • Once we are done with the installation, we will check for leaks and re-tighten all fittings if necessary.
  • If we are installing the lantern as well, we will make sure that we do not get fingerprints on the finish. If the patina has not hardened, fingerprints can show up that can take months to fade.

Benefits of Natural Gas Tiki Torches in South Florida

A tiki torch flame will normally withstand a wind more than 10 mph, and some models will even be able to endure some rain. However, you should never leave a torch unattended if inclement weather is approaching. Always extinguish the flame before you go back inside.

One of the benefits of having tiki torches attached to natural gas lines is that they can burn almost indefinitely, while torches that use citronella or paraffin oil usually only last a few hours. Your torch will still require periodic cleaning to make sure that debris doesn’t accumulate so it can operate safely.

Because gas is delivered to a tiki torch at a certain pressure, the flame tends to be higher and more brilliant. The flame will be at a consistent height all evening, and you can turn off a group of torches with the use of one valve. There will be some trenching required to install the line, so they are better suited for either new landscapes or for areas where the trenching will be as minimally disruptive as possible.
