Natural Gas is used for many of our water heaters, dryers, stoves and other appliances. Many homeowners experience a lower cost when using natural gas for their energy usage. Southwest Gas states "Be a smarter energy user by choosing natural gas to help you reduce your energy costs while protecting the environment."This is the time of year many homeowners look into adding gas lines for outside bbq's, fireplaces, and other great lighting décor. Before adding any more gas lines to your home, it's important to know your choices of the type of gas piping that are available, use only a licensed gas line experienced plumber, like Benjamin Franklin Pluming to be sure your gas lines are installed with quality material and by all gas codes and calculations, to keep you safe and allow your appliance to perform properly.  When choosing the type of gas line material it's very important to know there are pros and cons to each type. It's important to know what is best for you and the application your needing it for, before having your gas line installed. Not all companies are the same, too many homeowners find out after that their gas line starts to leak very early that the gas line used was not of better quality.  Natural Gas energy and natural gas appliances are very safe and should be installed and checked annually by a licensed professional plumber like, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, to be sure nothing is malfunctioning. Gas line connections are very important and play an important role in keeping you safe in your home day after day.

This alarm must be installed as instructed by the manufacture to work properly.  If an odor of rotten eggs or any other symptom like dizziness or headaches, of a gas leak occur, please call your gas utility company ASAP.
