Do you live in Tacoma and own a home? Chances are, you will need to inspect and repair or re-install your gas lines at some point. Gas lines are incredibly important for the functionality of your home, and run several different appliances. This includes your stove, water heater, and fireplace. Ensuring that they are installed and working correctly is highly important.
It’s smart to have a professional do the installation due to the dangerous nature of the job if done by an inexperienced person. Keeping your family safe is a worthy investment for you and your household!
There are a few signs to be aware of ahead of time to help spot a damaged gas line. A smart homeowner in Tacoma can act quickly to protect their household.
Rotten egg smell coming from your stove. If you notice a rotten egg smell, turn off your gas line immediately. The gas comes with a sulfur smell added so that homeowners can be able to pinpoint when there is a leak. You are usually able to sense this smell a little every time you start your stove before usage as some of it leaks out when you start it. However, if the smell is continual, this means that leakage is happening when it is not in use. If this is the case, turn off your gas as soon as possible.
Hissing sound. If you hear a hissing sound coming from your gas range, turn off the gas immediately. Again, this is a sign that gas is somehow leaking. This may be from a hole that is allowing the gas to escape (creating the hissing sound). Once off, call your licensed local plumber to assess the issue and repair the problem.
Dying plants and flowers. If your plants are randomly dying, it may be due to leaking gas from your home. Leaking gas is dangerous for you and your household. If gas is leaking out into your home, this could be because of gas that is destroying the living plants.
Knowing which signs to look out for and acting quickly will help protect your family. Obtain help from a professional for repair or installation.

Your home’s gas line facilitates the use of some of your home’s most important functions. Without your gas line functioning properly, you are unlikely to be able to heat your home and operate appliances properly. That’s why your gas line is such an important investment. When making that investment, here are the common cost factors involved:
The complexity and scope of your home’s gas line installation or replacement can dictate the labor cost for the project. If your home requires an extensive, complicated installation, then the labor costs for the project are likely to be higher.
To install your home’s gas line, a Mainline Plumbing technician will have to run your line from your home to the main supply line. The further your home is from the main supply line, the longer your line that needs to be installed has to be, and thus the more expensive your installation cost will be.
In some cases, there may be additional costs associated with connecting your home’s gas line to the main supply line from your provider.
Depending on the jurisdiction, a permit may be required to install a new gas line for your home. No need to worry though, Mainline’s technicians have the appropriate expertise to guide you through the permit process.
Normally, any appliance in your home that uses gas needs a shut off valve. Shut-off valves are an important part of any gas line installation to ensure the safety of those in your home.
Perhaps the most indicative cost determinant when it comes to installing a gas line is the type of piping a homeowner elects to have installed. A Mainline professional technician can help you determine what type of piping is best for your Tacoma home.
