Gas appliances can be a great choice for your home in NYC. Natural gas is a great power source for heating, as well as appliances like dryers, water heaters, stoves, and more.
Before you get started with the installation process, you want to be sure you know all of the steps to take for an efficient upgrade that will give you the right gas piping system to cover your family’s needs and support any gas appliances you want to install.
What to Know When Planning Natural Gas Pipe Installation
If you have researched natural gas and are preparing to install gas powered appliances in your home you can follow this checklist to be sure that you go through all the right steps:
- Hire a Professional – In NYC , you will need to hire a licensed master plumber to install any gas piping and appliances.
- Find Out What is Already in Place – A house may have gas piping from a previous owner even if you are not currently using gas appliances. You should check to see what may already be installed. A master plumber can further check to see what condition existing gas lines are in to see if any additional work is necessary.
- Check All Permit Nneeds – The NYC Department of Buildings requires different permits and paperwork from you and your plumber. Be sure you know the requirements and are able to submit everything before beginning work.
- Install Appliances – It is most convenient when you install gas pipes and appliances at the same time so that all hookups can perfectly match up and you can be sure that all work is completed. Do some research and pick out your own preferred appliances before the installation process begins.
