Thread: Pulling a gas line complicated????

    Default Pulling a gas line complicated????

    Hi

    We are planning to buy a house in DE. I love cooking with gas stove. I have a question, if the house has gas heat can I put a gas stove. Is this a complicated process?? Do they have to dig through the floor and all that stuff????

    Default gas

    IF this is a slab house the gas line cannot be installed under the floor. It must go overhead and how difficult this is depends on a lot of factors that only someone who sees the job can evaluate.

    If you are on a slab ( houses in DE don't have basements?) then the line would have to go up through the walls, across the ceiling or in the attic, and down through the wall again. It is very doable.

    Now, mosy folks on here will recommend against any DIY gas work...too much downside.

    Depending on your local laws, in many areas homeowners ARE allowed to do this. All of the following will be true:
    1) A permit from city is mandatory.
    2) Pulling the permit will then require you to put a test on the line, and get it inspected, before the city will allow the gas to be turned on.
    3) Homeowners do not have the expensive tools to cut and thread black iron pipe. **********s will do this for you, with varying quality.

    It would probalby not break your bank to have a licensed plumber do the work.

    I think I wrote just home store, not a specific name. I guess the filter gnome is real touchy today!
