Do Plumbers Deal With Gas?
When you think of plumbing, chances are you’re thinking of things like fix a clogged toilet, repairing a faucet or sink, pipes that carry water and sewage, as well as do installation and repair jobs for faucets, sinks, garbage disposals, sewer lines, etc. You’re probably thinking of all the parts of the freshwater and wastewater system of a home or commercial building.
Can a Plumber Run a Gas Line?
Natural and propane gas pipes are an important part of the services some professional plumbers like Duncan Plumbing Solutions offer. Many plumbers are NOT certified in this area. However, if you are looking for a plumber to install or work with alternative fuels such as liquid propane, natural gas or medical gas in Waxahachie, Ellis County or the Dallas or Ft. Worth metroplex, look no further than Duncan Plumbing Solutions. We can install, service or repair the gas piping for your home or business. We’re a full-service plumbing company that can handle any gas job, big or small from LPG, Propane, Butane, and Natural Gas.
You Must Hire a Plumber with Special Gas Certification
It’s illegal for just any plumber to work on a pipe or appliance connected to a gas main unless they have a special license to do so. Not only are professional gas plumbers the only people with the skill to do the job, they are the only people who are allowed to do the job. There’s good reason for this limitation! Leaking gas lines are tremendous health hazards. Gas explosions have been in the news in Ellis County and all around Waxahachie. Make sure you stay safe and see that properly licensed professional plumbers such as Duncan Plumbing Solutions handle all your gas piping services.
