Looking for gas grill line installations to get your barbecue set up properly? Your local plumbing & heating contractors can help!
Ah, summer. A time for relaxing by the pool, firing up the barbecue, and grilling some steak for your friends and family. The only problem with this picture is the work needed to prepare your patio grill for the grilling season. Even many of the most experienced backyard grill masters are only aware of two options: propane tanks and charcoal. However, there is a third option that many professional outdoor cooks see as superior to both: natural gas grills.
Natural Gas Grill Advantages
Have you ever considered hooking up a gas barbecue grill to a natural gas line? There are several advantages to using this method. Some advantages of a natural gas grill are:
No more trips to the store. When you have a natural gas grill, you never worry about running out of fuel. No more last-minute delays while you run to the gas station for a bag of overpriced charcoal. No more half-cooked sausages because the propane tank ran dry. With gas lines, you will always be ready to go.
It is safe, green, and clean. Natural gas lines have safety shut-off valves, and it is about a third as cheap as propane. It is more pleasant for your guests than the fumes from propane grills, and natural gas gives off fewer emissions than propane.
Natural gas cooks better. You can put the propane grill vs charcoal grill taste controversy to rest. Natural gas is better at holding the burners to a constant temperature, allowing for more control over the cooking process.
I’m Sold! How Do I Get One?
Many homeowners and DIY enthusiasts may be tempted to install a natural gas grill by themselves. There is only one problem: gas lines are safe, but only when properly installed by a professional. Many DIY projects are fun and educational experiences, and even if you make some mistakes you can take pride in a job that you did yourself. Installing gas lines is not one of these projects. Improper installation of a gas hose can lead to many problems that can be dangerous, to say nothing of wasting money.
If gas hoses or connections are improperly installed, you risk gas leaks. This can lead to you paying a high price for the natural gas that escapes into the air. The gas can lead to sickness, and many natural gas companies add sulfur compounds to their gas to give it an odor that is detectable but also very unpleasant. What’s more, sickness and expensive gas bills may be the least of your worries. The escaping gas leak can be ignited, leading to fires and explosions that result in property damage, injury or even death.
Finally, installing a gas line by yourself may even be illegal in your area. You may void your warranty, and insurers may refuse to pay for damages to your house caused by DIY installations. Different places have different requirements, so it is important to check with an experienced gas fitting business like ours.
