We use quality products. In most instances, we try to use flexible carbon steel to transport natural gas from the exterior gas source to appliances. Flexible steel eliminates the need to cut and piece individual segments of piping together which reduces potential for gas leaks. Carbon steel possesses additives that can withstand certain conditions during element exposure.

Polyproylene is made of a thermoplastic polymer. This type of piping is also commonly used to contain gas in the pipe, but it is not the preferred material for conveying gas. Copper is an older material that is the least preferred. Since copper is highly conductive, this is not a desired characteristic of natural gas piping. Copper is also not flexible and more conducive to gas leaks. We try to refrain from using this material, but will provide copper repiping services if required.

WHY ARE GAS LINES AND PIEDMONT PLUMBING SERVICES NECESSARY

Many home owners install gas lines for gas stoves, furnaces, fireplaces or other gas operable appliances in the home. It deals with highly flammable, potentially deadly gases and requires the right materials and proper procedures. Gas lines deliver the natural energy source to the home safely. Gas lines must meet certain specifications to ensure that there are no gas leaks that may be harmful to the inhabitants. The Master Plumber must ensure that the pipes are designed to properly deliver gas to the home.

RESIDENT SMELLS GAS

If the resident smells gas, he or she can shut off the gas valve and contact us to address the issue. Gas is typically odorless and colorless. Gas companies add a “rotten egg” smell to gas so residents can detect it when it is leaking.

LEAKS

If there is a gas leak, we will attempt to locate the leak and shut the gas line down at the main line if it has not already been completed. Then, our Master Plumber will dig to find the gas line and leak. The gas line will be replaced and pressure tested to ensure there are no leaks. The site will be cleaned up and restored to its previous splendor if the leak is adequately repaired.

NO HOT WATER

The pilot light may need to be relit, the gas line may be clogged or need repair. If the gas line is damaged, the flowers or vegetation near the gas leak will be discolored or deteriorated. Contact our Marietta Plumbing professional to determine the extent of the problem.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR INSTALLING GAS LINES

The intensity of installation will depend on the type of gas line required and the location of the gas line. The process is labor-intensive and skill-intensive and plumbing code as well as county code require a Master Plumber to ensure the gas lines are installed properly.

WHY IS NATURAL GAS CHOSEN AS THE PREFERRED ENERGY SOURCE

Many chefs prefer to cook with natural gas on the stove top and electric in the oven. Electric ovens tend to bake goods more evenly. Natural gas is also preferred because it can be a “green” or clean energy source. This fossil fuel contains 43 percent less carbon dioxide than an electricity source that is derived from coal. Most environmentalists prefer natural gas for this reason. Ninety percent of energy produced by natural gas is delivered to the customer through gas lines. This is an efficient means to receive energy to the home.
