Why gas line installation is not a DIY project

Do you know what state and local regulations are for gas line installation? Odds are your town requires that they be done by a professional.

Experienced gas line installers stay up to date with the latest safety codes and technology to guarantee work that meets or exceeds municipal requirements. Whether installing lines in a busy downtown or on a quiet country road, certified technicians have the knowledge and skills to ensure gas lines are installed properly and safely. Daily work with gas lines means installers are intimately familiar with the most current safety practices and local codes to perform the job accurately.

Permits are another consideration. If you need to install a gas line, you will likely need a permit and inspection from the town. In case your town demands a permit for a certain job, only a professional can obtain the permit and request for an inspection. Besides, if your town requires a permit, but you decide to do the work without one, they might charge you double or even demand that a professional removes and reinstalls the gas line. So much for all that money you thought you were going to save.

While installing gas pipes may seem like a straightforward job, gas fitters pay high insurance premiums for legitimate reasons. If you plan to install a gas line yourself, it is important to consider whether your homeowner’s insurance covers any damages that may result from your work. They likely won’t, so why risk it?
