Gas pipe repair and installation is at the heart of Advocate Master Plumbing’s business and training. In this region a master plumbers correct title is master gasfitter/plumber. Our cold weather creates a large demand for natural gas heating as well as new technology such as natural gas fuel cells and natural gas powered vehicles. This demand is also expressed in the need for qualified and trained individuals to service and install gas piping. But for the average Lee’s Summit resident their use of it normally comes down to a few basic needs. Who would have thought that something as integrated into our daily lives was discovered by the Chinese almost 3000 years ago. And piped to villages using bamboo pipe to transport it to heat brine for salt extraction. But plumbers don’t use bamboo, of course, they use black iron gas pipe, corrugated stainless steel gas pipe, polyethylene gas pipe and more. How is natural gas used in your home?
Water Heater Gas Pipe
Water heater gas pipe is the most common use of natural gas. Many people don’t know that while natural gas water heater installations are more expensive when building a home, it costs half as much to heat your water with natural gas than it does with electricity. This makes it twice as efficient. It does, unfortunately, also mean that gas water heater repairs are more common than electric water heater repairs. There’s more to a gas water heater than an electric. There are also more dangers involved with one. Carbon monoxide is a deadly killer. As is fire. This is why your home should be equipped with both a smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector near every room of your home. At Advocate Master Plumbing we have your families health and safety in mind at all times while working in your home.
