The installation process for installing gas lines can be very complicated, and dangerous. This is especially true if you are doing a new install where gas never existed before. There are many regulations that must be adhered to making sure that this process is done in a safe and professional manner. Always use a licensed and certified gas fitter for this type of project.
If you are considering installing a gas line for a cooktop or range, there are many reasons while you might choose a gas Appliance versus an electric appliance. Electric appliances take a long time to heat up, whereas a gas cooktop will heat up instantly. it is also much easier to control the temperature settings with a gas Appliance versus an electric appliance, so if cooking with precision temperature is important to you then you might want to consider a natural gas range. Natural gas is also much less expensive to operate than the electric counterparts.
The most common installs for gas lines are when people are performing projects such as an outdoor deck heater, a fire pit, garage heaters, outdoor deck heaters and gas appliances.
