If you’ve never owned a home with a natural gas line, you may be unsure who to call for gas-related installation, replacement, maintenance, and repair services, and a common question we get here at Christian is “Do our plumbers work on gas lines?”. The answer to that question is yes!
Plumbers Are Gas Line Specialists
Many homeowners associate plumbers with water, but plumbing systems aren’t limited to systems that carry clean water but also sewage, gas, and other fluids. Plumbing licenses and certifications require training with gas lines as well. These plumbers are the professionals to call when you need a new natural gas appliance, such as a stove, hooked up. They can also perform installations, replacements, upgrades, repairs, inspections, and so forth.
Do All Plumbers Work on Gas Lines?
Perhaps the more appropriate question to ask is, “Do all plumbers work on gas lines?”, and the answer to that is no—at least not here in Pennsylvania. If you own a home in a different state, you’ll need to check the licensing and certification requirements in that particular state. In Pennsylvania, apprentice, journeyman, and master plumber status does not require gas line certification. Most plumbers do opt to get that additional licensing since it’s so relevant to their profession. The reason Pennsylvania does this is that there are other professionals, such as HVAC technicians, who may need to work on gas lines as well, and this allows them to maintain one certification for all of those different trades.
Which Gas Line Services Do Plumbers Offer?
Another question related to “Do plumbers work on gas lines?”, is what services do they provide, and appliance hookup is among the most common. When you get a new gas appliance, it’s highly recommended you hire a plumber to hook it up and ensure that everything is safe and functioning well. If you’ve recently gained access to a natural gas line, you’ll need to hire a plumber to install the gas plumbing in your home and connect it to the main line. A plumber can add connections to your gas line as needed, and if you ever have a problem with your gas line, including the rotten egg smell associated with mercaptan, a plumber is who you’ll want to call to check it out.
