One thing is for sure, this is an area you do not want to play with. Leave gas line installations to the experts.
If you smell gas or see an open flame
If you suspect that you smell gas, get out of the house immediately and call 911. Don’t worry about anything else. If possible shut off the main gas supply if it’s outside the house, but that is secondary. Fire departments and your local gas suppliers like the RG&E or NYSEG have sophisticated equipment that will locate and identify the source of the leak at no cost to you. When the source of the leak is identified give us a call, our gas line certified staff can make all the necessary repairs.
Converting, installing or moving a new or used gas appliances
Proper gas line sizing, fittings and valves all play a part in a proper gas line installation. It will ensure your appliance receives the proper gas flow for your appliance to function according to manufacture specifications. Just as important, are the proper hangers and supports for gas piping. Never settle for sagging or unsupported piping or piping the can be swung or moved by hand. Constant movement even by vibrations could loosen a pipe or fittings leaving you and your home in a dangerous situation.
