At Cass Plumbing, We’re here to make your life easier, so we’ve gathered a list of popular appliances and places in your home that often require a gas connection.
Gas Water Heaters
Whether you’re installing a new water heater or moving the existing water heater to another location it’s safer to give us a call to complete the work instead of trying to do it yourself! Remember, a water leak is much different than a gas pipe leak.
Gas water heaters tend to have higher initial costs than comparable electric water heaters but can also cost less to operate. The average input ratings for a gas water heater range from around 30,000 to 180,000 BTUs, depending on size. The more BTUs, the faster the unit will heat water. Electric water heaters range in power input from about 1,440 to 5,500 watts, and the same principle applies—the higher the wattage, the more quickly the unit will heat water. In the long run, you will most often save money in energy investing in a gas water heater.
If you currently have a gas water heater or you are considering changing over to a gas water heater from electric, have the installation done by a professional licensed plumber like Cass Plumbing of Tampa Bay. Gas should be taken very seriously and safe, proper installs are always best done by licensed professionals.
Connecting gas appliances should be left to a professional like the pros at Cass Plumbing. This task is definitely not a DIY!
While this may be in the back of your mind given the season, if you’ve always thought about installing a new outdoor grill or creating a new outdoor space that includes an outdoor kitchen, make sure to contact us to install, move, or extend the gas line.
