Gas Line Repair Service, Houston
Get Your Home Gas Service Tested and Inspected
Have you had your gas line tested? The gas system building codes have changed. Over the past years, the building codes for gas system testing in Texas have changed to compliment the changes that have occurred in appliances along with lifestyles. For example, many home ovens were operated by pilot lights years ago. With today’s technology, automatic igniters now ignite ovens. This causes the gas system to be more exposed to being energized by electricity. This is a BIG hazard. Many homes have gas systems that are not bonded to the actual electrical grounding system. A standard inspection would fail this and demand repair on it as well. By testing your home’s gas pipes, you can be clear of this happening.
Another gas line hazard is rusty gas lines leading to property damage or fires. A regular inspection would find rusty pipes. After finding rusty pipes, you would want to get this repaired. A rusty gas line above ground is the gas company’s full responsibility. We work with gas companies.

When natural gas is properly maintained and installed, it is safe. As the system ages, fittings and plumbing materials can deteriorate and lead to a natural gas leak.

You should be aware of all conditions of your exterior and interior plumbing system to ensure finding possible failings in the future.
