Installing And repairing gas lines? Hire a licensed plumber!


Gas lines power your kitchen appliances, your fireplace, your water heater, and other appliances that keep your home warm, dry, and comfortable. They are one of the most important parts of your home. Properly installing and repairing gas lines is just as important. Most people only consider using a licensed plumber for issues related to their water and sewage systems, but licensed plumbers can also work with natural gas lines. Your natural gas piping has a lot in common with your freshwater and wastewater piping. The pipes are made from similar materials and connected in similar ways. They have a similar lifespan and break down in similar ways. In many jurisdictions, it is illegal for someone to perform work on a gas pipe or gas-powered appliance if they do not have a special license to do so. There is even a subset of licensed plumbers that specialize in natural gas line issues.

A natural gas plumbing specialist installs and repairs natural gas lines for a variety of home projects. They can install or repair water heaters, HVAC systems, fireplaces, stoves, and outdoor grills. In addition to possessing a master plumbing license, a natural gas plumber will usually have a license that states he or she can work on and install natural gas lines. Some local utility companies will not permit a plumber, even with a specialized license, to perform work on your gas lines. Leaking gas lines are very dangerous and only hiring a licensed professional to work on your gas lines will ensure your family’s safety. Check with your local gas company, and if they permit this, it may be worth looking into because hiring an experienced, licensed plumber may save you several hundred dollars over having the work performed by your utility company. Visit to find a list of licensed plumbers and contractors in your area. You can trust these professionals with installing and reparing gas lines in your home.

When to hire a licensed plumber for gas line issues

o Aging gas lines

Time and use corrodes gas lines naturally. Consider it a cost of homeownership that you will eventually need to replace aging gas lines, and when you do it, you shouldn’t attempt to DIY the project or hire a handyman. Hire an experienced, licensed plumber with gas line experience.

o Remodeling

Remodeling your home, regrading your property, or performing other similar work? You’ll likely need to have work done on your gas lines as well to move the lines or the meter, add sections, expand your use, increase your capacity, or rerun the lines to fit with the new layout of your home.

o Adding or installing new appliances

If you’re adding an appliance to your kitchen or installing new appliances, you must install new gas lines. You may also install new gas lines for things like outdoor lighting and even outdoor grills.

o Gas Leak

You’ll notice a gas line leak by the presence of a rotten egg smell. If you smell this, it is imperative that you turn off the gas to your house immediately and repair your gas line piping.
