Have you recently purchased a new or older model home and are looking to install new gas appliances? Are you working on improving your current home as part of a renovation project? If so, you’ve probably wondered how to connect a gas stove to a gas line (or how to connect your fireplace or BBQ, for example).
Although you may be tempted to take on the task yourself, working with gas lines can be dangerous if you don’t have the right knowledge and experience. This is a task that you need a professional to complete for you. Hooking up gas appliances is NOT a DIY project.
A professional gas fitter knows all the regulations, parts and tools needed to safely and properly connect to a gas line for stoves and other appliances throughout your home. Gas is an explosive material and a mistake or misstep could cause a serious fire, explosion or leak. This could spell disaster for your family, your home, and even your neighbours. Don’t take the risk, call a certified gas fitter to install your gas stove and other gas appliances.
What to Expect with Your Gas Stove Installation
When a professional connects a gas stove to a gas line they start by checking local codes first to ensure that they are permitted to do an installation in the area. Once they confirm that it’s fine to do this, then, they will purchase a new gas stove connector, remove the range and shut off the gas and then complete the hookup. Finally, your gas fitter will check for leaks before moving the stove back into place.
