By George Bowering Subscribe to RSS | June 28th 2012 | Views:

The process of gas line installation does not involve steps that cannot be managed by a single person. However, you should not attempt installing the gas pipeline in your home, since there is a lot of risk involved in the process. If you happen to miss to provide proper packaging to a joint then gas can leak out of it and can also cause severe fire in your house. Therefore, it is better and advisable to employ heating contractors in Vancouver to carry out gas line installation. Some of the steps followed in the installation process that requires sill and experience are mentioned below.

Right Material

As per the specific needs, professionals use material that is suitable for your requirement. You do not want problem of excess or low gas pressure and thus they also take care of the shape and size of the pipes used in the installation process.

Disconnecting gas connection

They not only turn off the gas connection from the master plug. They take extra burden of disconnecting the gas supply from the main valve. This valve can also be underground and thus require digging up a small area. However, it is very important to disconnect the gas supply, ensuring there is no leakage during the installation process.

Extending the pipe

Required amount of gas pipe is used to extend the length of the existing pipeline. If a fresh connection is laid, then the best quality of pipe is used in the portion that is to remain underground. If it does not require an underground installation, then also a flexible pipe is used of the process.


When the gas pipe is extended to the appliance, it requires fixing it for continuous usage. Good quality glue and sealant is used for the purpose. High quality pipe that is also flexible should be used to connect the main pipeline with the appliance.


Once the process of fixing is complete, experts from heating contractors in Vancouver, allow the sealant to get dry. After some time, they ascertain, whether the sealant is properly fixed or not. If they find it properly fixed, then they take a mixture of water and some washing solution and check for any leakage. In case they find a leakage they re-do the section and recheck it for integrity.

The aforementioned steps are not all that is carried out by professional heating contractors while they carry out gas line installation work; however, these are the most important steps followed in the process. Moreover, in written the processes seem to be quite easy to follow, but these require skill and experience to carry them out without making an error and thus you should not try to install the gas line by yourself at home.
