Many homes and buildings rely on a gas line to supply energy for things like powering the furnace, kitchen stove, oven, grills, and more. A gas line is also crucial for the water heater as well as appliances and plumbing fixtures that rely on hot water, such as the laundry machine, dishwasher, and showerhead. As you can imagine, the gas line and plumbing work together in many ways. More surprisingly, for most property owners, many plumbers are qualified to work on the gas line.
If you need a plumber that can also deliver gas line repair, you are always welcome to call Sunshine Plumbers for service. Our friendly representatives are on standby to answer questions or concerns, schedule a convenient appointment, or arrange an emergency gas line repair today.
Naturally, when people think of a plumber, they think of someone who is trained to work on the plumbing system directly. Specifically, they think of pipes and drains that carry freshwater and wastewater, as well as the appliances that rely on those pipes and drains, such as the toilet, faucets, showerheads, and so on.
However, plumbers are not restricted to drains and pipes that only carry water. Indeed, many plumbers are also trained and certified to work on pipes and tubing that carry natural gas around the building.
This should not come as a surprise considering the plumbing fixtures and appliances such as laundry machines, dishwashers, and showers require hot water. Further, the piping and materials are fairly similar.
We mentioned that plumbers can work on the gas line pipes and tubing as well as the plumbing pipes and drains, but not every plumber is certified or trained to work on gas lines. Because gas lines are incredibly risky, individuals must be certified and trained to work on a gas line. If you ever call a skilled plumber and they say that the issue is with the gas line, then make sure to ask for credentials before allowing them to work on the gas line.
The gas line work is not work for amateurs! Even a small mistake can be catastrophic as a gas leak can lead to poisoning and even explosions. Do not put yourself, your family, or your property in danger. Always ask for licensing and/or certification before allowing someone to work on the gas line.
There is great benefit to having a plumber that can work on plumbing appliances as well as the gas line. For instance, many times the water heater may not be working because of an issue with the gas line. It can be disappointing to call a plumber in Lake Magdalene and pay a dispatch fee just to learn this. Fortunately, the plumbers at Sunshine Plumbers are qualified to work on gas lines so that you don’t have to worry about calling several companies just to have the water heater working again. Call Sunshine Plumbers to consult with a friendly representative and schedule a convenient appointment today.
