Plumbers are mostly called in for leaky pipes, problems with toilets and showers and water heaters but most homeowners don’t realize that specialty plumbers are trained to install and maintain gas lines.
Do All Plumbers Work On Gas Lines?
Absolutely not. Plumbers who are trained and licensed to work with natural gas have the expertise to work on gas lines.
Make sure that you use a plumber with these credentials!
Although not all plumbers are trained and licensed to work with gas lines, here at Atlantis Plumbing we DO have natural gas plumbers that work on installing and repairing gas lines.
So, if you’re looking for the right professional who installs gas lines for stoves, fixes gas leaks, etc. – look for plumbers with the expertise and licensing to work with natural gas.
How Much Does A Gas Line Installation Cost?
According to HomeAdvisor.com, the cost range for gas line installs is anywhere from $120 to $1350. “Most homeowners spend between $256 and $768.”
Cost of material, labor cost, obtaining permits and costs due to following local building codes and complexity of the project all play a part in the overall cost of the installation.
Do Plumbers Fix Gas Leaks?
Before we answer this question let’s talk about safety first.
Natural gas leaks can set off an explosion. If you suspect that you have a gas leak, open as many windows and doors in your home as possible, quickly and then leave the home immediately.
Call your gas supplier or the fire department from your cell phone or a neighbor’s phone.
- Do not try to light the stove or use any appliance
- Don’t turn on any lights
- Do not touch any light switches
- Don’t use a landline phone
IMPORTANT: Gas leaks can’t always be detected by smell, especially by the elderly whose sense of smell may be impaired.
We highly recommend that you use a combustible gas leak/carbon monoxide detector that is approved by UL or CSA. You can find these at your nearby home supply store, like The Home Depot or Lowe’s.
So, to answer the question, “Do plumbers fix gas leaks?” – the answer is YES. Specially trained plumbers who deal with natural gas can fix gas leaks.
