If your home has a propane or natural gas furnace or dryer, it also has a system of gas pipes that were put in place by gas line installers. These pipes are more complicated than water pipes for your home’s plumbing system. They need to be air tight instead of just water tight, for example, and they are subject to more regulations than plumbing pipes.
Gas line installers work with gas lines of all kinds, and they have advanced equipment and expertise that allow them to professionally install pressurized gas lines without leaks.
Some homeowners do have enough skill and the right tools to handle gas pipes on their own. If you have a reliable way to pressure test your gas lines and the ability to cut and modify pipes, you could repair, move, or improve gas pipes on your own.
Be exceptionally careful when working with natural gas or propane due to how flammable they are. A consistent gas leak can cause gas to build up in part of your home, and it could potentially explode in the wrong circumstances. If you’re at all concerned about working with gas pipes, make sure to hire gas line installers instead of taking on the project yourself.
