Natural gas has several advantages. It is efficient, affordable, and clean-burning. It is also easily available and safe to use so long as an experienced plumber installed the gas piping system and appliances. All of these benefits can make your home more comfortable, save you money on energy costs, and increase the value of your property.
In NYC, building code requires a Licensed Master Plumber to perform any installations and related work for appliances that rely on natural gas. If you are considering adding any common gas-powered appliances to your home or are planning a renovation that will result in moving one of these appliances, you will need an LMP.
Gas Powered Appliances an LMP Can Install
Natural gas is the leading method for heating properties in NYC, but the majority of appliances in homes and businesses can be powered with natural gas, including:
- Hot Water Heaters
- Gas Ranges and Ovens
- Gas Fireplaces
- Natural Gas Refrigerators
- Clothes Dryers
- Space Heaters, and More
To use natural gas with these appliances, you first need to have the correct gas supply and branch lines running to the right locations on your property. A licensed master plumber can manage this process safely with the right piping materials, connectors, and adherence to building codes.
In addition to installations, you should also call on a licensed master plumber in New York City for repairs to gas-powered appliances. This includes any time you notice a leak or suspect a problem with the gas line is causing an appliance to malfunction.
