The Gas Line Installation Process

The installation process for a new gas line is pretty complicated and requires inspections and collaboration with your gas company. Part of the reason it is so important to work with trained experts is that we will navigate this process for you. Initial steps will include locating the main gas line on your street, then notifying the gas company that your home is going to connect to it. A site survey needs to be performed during which our technicians will calculate how much natural gas your home will need and how much physical piping will be needed to connect your home to the main gas line on your street. This information is relayed to the gas company and permits are obtained to do the piping work.

Once permits are obtained, work can begin. All utilities on and around your property will be marked off for safe digging and then the trenches are dug. The pipe is installed and assembled right in the ground and connected to the non-working gas meter outside of your home. All work has to be inspected at this point by a city inspector, including the connection to the meter. When the work is cleared by the inspector, the installation work moves to the inside of your home, where all gas systems and appliances will be connected to the gas line. A second, indoor inspection is required, and when this inspection states everything is safe, the gas can be turned on.

Signs You Have a Gas Leak

As convenient as natural gas is, it’s important to remember that it can be a dangerous gas.

Many precautions are taken to ensure your constant safety, but you should still be aware of the signs of a potential gas leak:

  • Hissing sound anywhere inside or outside your home: Gas escaping from a pipe will make a hissing sound because the contents are under pressure.
  • Rotten egg smell: Natural gas is odorless, but the gas company puts an additive in the gas so that it will emit a smell when leaking. The odor is distinct, so should you smell it at any time, call immediately for help.
  • Dying vegetation outside: Signs that your gas line may have developed a leak outside of your home is dying vegetation, including dead grass and bare patches in your lawn.

Natural gas can be a great convenience, but it needs to be connected to your home in a safe, efficient manner.
