Why You Should Consider New Gas Line Installation

Posted on: March 7, 2016

When people think of plumbing, they usually think of water. But our plumbers work with other types of pipes in homes as aside from the ones found in the freshwater and wastewater system. We also install and repair the pipes that carry natural gas from the municipal supply to various appliances in your home.

The benefits of gas line installation

If you have a natural gas line into your home, you should make as much use of it as possible. How many appliances currently use it? Do you have a gas furnace or boiler, but you’re still using an electric stove or oven in the kitchen? Have you considered switching to a gas-powered clothes drying machine? Expanding the use of your gas to as many appliances as possible is a good idea for a number of reasons:

  • Cost – Natural gas is a less expensive energy source than electricity and other heating oils. This is especially true when it comes to heating systems and kitchen equipment. Electrical resistance heaters, stoves, and ovens may be able to get the job done, but natural gas can get the job done for a lot less.
  • Convenience – Along with the lower cost, natural gas is just as convenient as using electricity, since it comes right to your house from a municipal source. And it’s much more convenient than using heating oils like propane that must have deliveries scheduled regularly.
  • Power – Natural gas-powered heating systems and drying machines are much more effective at doing their jobs than electrical models.
  • Domestically produced – The majority of natural gas comes from right in the U.S., which helps reduce dependency on foreign oil.

If you’re thinking that you would like to expand the use of natural gas in your house, remember that this is a job that must remain in the hands of trained and licensed professionals. There is too much at risk for you to turn to amateurs.

For gas line installation, as well as gas line repairs, call Bud Matthews Services in Durham, NC. We’re here for all you home service needs!
