If your home uses natural gas power for some of its appliances, you are responsible for the pipes that move the gas under and through your home after they leave the municipal supply; they are not an issue for the utility company. For older homes, you may need to have new piping installed to replace aging ones. If it’s time to remodel your home, you’ll need to install new gas piping to help increase your options for the re-design. Or perhaps you are considering fitting your home for a connection to a gas supply line for the first time.

Keep these 3 factors in mind for gas pipe installation
- It absolutely must be performed by professionals: Whenever you deal with any appliance or any system that uses natural gas, you must have licensed and skilled professionals to do the work. This is both for issues of safety (for you and your home) and in order for a house to stay up to code. In some jurisdictions, it is illegal for anyone to work on an appliance connected to a gas main without proper licensing. Amateur work can lead to slow and dangerous gas leaks, which can cause toxic exposure and the risk of fire hazards.
- Corroded piping needs replacement: Although gas pipes are made of durable material, the material of older pipes is more susceptible to corrosion over time. When you call for gas pipe replacement, have the installers look over the pipes of your home to locate places where they may have started to rust to the point that they could spring dangerous leaks. Make this a priority if you live in a home built before 1970. (If you live in a pre-World War II home, then you should consider a complete gas pipe replacement.)
- Add new appliances during the installation: Even if you have already had natural gas piped into your home, you should take the opportunity during new installation to add new appliances. If you previously only use natural gas for your heater, consider adding a gas stove and oven. Gas-powered laundry machines are also an option. And if you previously used an electric furnace, a new gas furnace will save you a great deal of money. Let your installers help you with suggestions for how to expand your use of natural gas.
