Gas Line Services
When you decide to purchase a new gas appliance, you have to make sure it’s approved for type of gas you have in your home – natural or propane. All of the appliances in your home should run off of the same gas source. Those appliances are connected through gas lines that run from the gas source. If you are looking to install a gas appliance where there was formerly an electrical connection, you will have to have a new line run.
Gas line installations are not for amateurs and they often require a permitting process through your city or county. Not to mention that mishandling a gas line is dangerous! These lines carry flammable gas throughout your home and that’s not something you want your family to be exposed to. Proper installation and ongoing maintenance is essential to keeping you and your family safe.
Lake Cook Plumbing technicians will take care of the entire job from the permitting process to the end result. You can count on us!
