How Are Gas Appliances Connected In Portland?
Gas appliances require a gas line running from the natural or propane gas source to a connection on the back of the appliance. 3 Mountains Plumbing has been serving the Portland area for over 12 years and all of our plumbers are certified and have gone through countless hours of training to stay on top of regulations. We will run the gas line and make all the necessary connections and safety installations needed. We will also collaborate with the local building code inspector if a permit is required to complete your gas connection.
Can I Connect A Gas Appliance Myself In Portland?
Portland does not currently restrict homeowners from performing gas fitting on their own, but there are considerations that you need to evaluate. Gas fittings involve connecting a highly flammable and dangerous gas to an appliance. If the connection is done wrong, you are putting your family and property at a great risk. Most cities, including Portland, also require that all gas work is permitted and inspected. A DIY homeowner will often times spend more money on a gas connection if the inspector finds problems with the installation and you have to have a certified plumber out to fix your mistake.
Do not risk your safety; call 3 Mountains Plumbing today to have your gas appliances installed.
