If you are considering installing a gas appliance or new gas system in your home, you should seriously consider having more work done. An experienced plumber should be the only one working on your gas lines for safety reasons, and some homeowners choose to have them replace multiple appliances at once. It makes sense for many homeowners to convert all of their machines to gas in one fell swoop. The professionals at Metcalf Plumbing are experts in gas line and appliance installation and repair, and they can help you improve the efficiency and function of your home’s large appliances by making the switch to gas. Here are four fixtures to consider for gas appliance installation in your home.
Fall is here, and winter is just around the corner. The cool weather is about to turn frigid, and your home’s heating should be primed and ready. If your wood stove or other heating system is on its last leg, you should look into getting a gas furnace for your home. They can produce hotter air faster than electric systems, and they are a more reliable source of heat than burning firewood.
Gas Stovetop and Oven
Gas appliance installation can make your entire kitchen look like new — and run more efficiently, too. Gas stoves, ovens, and ranges can completely change the way you cook. Many chefs, both professional and amateur, enjoy the way that gas stoves work. Rather than an induction stovetop or electric coil that heats up over time, gas stovetops and ranges use open flames for quick, hot, and efficient cooking. Gas is often cheaper than electricity, and you can still use your gas stove if the power goes out. Gas ovens also have flame broiling capabilities, which many home chefs find preferable to electric versions.
Gas Clothes Dryer
Like many other gas fixtures, clothes dryers powered by natural gas often operate more efficiently, quickly, and inexpensively than their electric counterparts. There’s nothing worse than an old electric dryer that takes two cycles to get your clothes dry. Consider replacing your old dryer with a fast and efficient gas dryer.
Gas Water Heater
Last but not least, gas water heaters are an excellent addition to any home. Because they are so popular and widely discussed, they are often the reason that many homeowners consider natural gas in the first place. Gas water heaters work faster and cheaper than standard electric systems, working even when your power goes out. Also, tankless versions mean that you will never run out of hot water.
