Natural gas provides a cost-effective and convenient means for heating the home for millions of people. A natural gas heating system needs to be installed correctly and use the correct type of pipes in order to function effectively and safely. If you are planning on installing a natural gas heating system, you should consider your options before using galvanized pipe.
One of the first considerations you have to make, when determining whether or not to use galvanized pipe and fittings for natural gas, is if it is legal to do so in your area. Communities have different codes in regard to the use of certain building materials, and galvanized pipe is no exception.
The main issue with regard to the use of galvanized pipe for natural gas is the fact that natural gas is known to corrode the inside of galvanized pipes over time. We are feeling the effects of this very problem now as Atmos energy prepares to replace gas lines in more than half a million homes across Texas including communities in Waxahachie, Midlothian, Red Oak, Cedar Hill, Desoto, Duncanville and many other cities across the state.
Natural gas has the best safety and reliability record of all traditional energy sources. However, we add a “rotten egg” odor to make you aware if gas is leaking. If you suspect you have a gas leak, leave your home immediately and contact Duncan Plumbing Solutions.
Safety and reliability stand as our primary objective. If you suspect a leak or that you have old and corroded gas pipes, contact Duncan Plumbing Solutions.
