A Good Reason to Expand Your Gas Piping: A Gas-Powered Dryer

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

One of the important plumbing jobs that our licensed and skilled plumbers handle has nothing to do with the flow of fresh water or waste water in a home. But it does have to do with pipes: it’s the installation and repair of gas piping. These pipes are responsible for transporting natural gas from the gas main to the various appliances in the house. Not every home has a gas connection, but those that do usually make use of this fuel supply to power the heating system (such as a furnace or boiler), the water heater, and kitchen appliances like the oven and stove.

However, if you’re looking for another way to use natural gas in your home, we suggest that you look into the installation of a gas-powered dryer for your laundry.

Orlando Plumber’s Guide: Gas Piping Installation

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Natural gas piping installation is a huge undertaking for your home, especially if you currently don’t have it. Any kind of gas repiping or piping installation should always be done by a licensed professional. Natural gas water heaters and furnaces are highly efficient and are a great alternative to other fuel-burning systems. Natural gas ranges are used by cooks around the world because they heat quickly and allow for near-instant temperature adjustments. We’ve assembled a quick description of how gas piping installation works is various applications. If you have additional questions, please give Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI) a call today.

Installing a New Gas Appliance

If you already have gas lines in your house, maybe propane or natural gas, then adding an additional gas-fired appliance won’t take very long. It’s simply a matter of running the new gas lines and connecting it to the appliance. Call your local licensed professional to perform any of these services.

Moving a Gas Appliance

If you’re interested in moving a gas appliance from area of your house to another, this is also fairly simple. This project can normally be done within a few days.

Converting Your Home to Gas

If you don’t currently have gas in your home, transitioning to natural gas is a huge process. It involves security the correct permits and then tapping into the city’s main natural gas line. Normally, a trench needs to be dug from the street to your home and a pipe buried to supply the gas to your house. We will also have to install all of the piping in your home as well.
