Santa Cruz Plumbing, Inc. serves Santa Cruz, San Benito, Monterey and Santa Clara Counties
When it comes to heating your home or powering appliances, natural gas is a cost-effective, reliable, efficient, and environmentally-friendly solution. Santa Cruz Plumbing specializes in gas line installation and repair services for any appliance, including fireplaces, stoves, grills, waters heaters, hot tub and pool heaters, boilers. We work on gas pipes in walls as well as underground. We serve clients in Santa Cruz and surrounding counties.
Gas lines carry natural gas or propane from the source to your home from a Santa Cruz (or other city) service line or a supply tank, such as with propane. These lines are always full and it could lead to a dangerous situation if you choose to do installations or repairs without the help of a professional.
Hiring a professional versus do-it-yourself gas plumbing
In many cases, a handy DIYer can do a reasonably good job with a simple water supply line installation or repair. But gas plumbing is different. Just because you could theoretically connect water fittings, valves and lines in a gas installation doesn't mean that it would work or be safe.
Gas plumbing, in buildings and underground, takes special knowledge, materials and techniques, and it's not as straightforward as it might look. More than that, not all plumbers have gas experience. Your job requires a professional plumber who knows how to create the supply and make it safe.
Faulty gas line installations or repair can mean big trouble
A gas leak is an emergency. Unlike water, which can create a mini flood, gas can make you and your family sick, or worse. It can also make your fireplace, water heater, furnace or even outdoor grill an immediate fire hazard.
Improper installation, inspection and testing can lead to dangerous conditions including fire hazard or explosion. The only way to know that your gas lines and appliances are safe is by letting our expert plumbers at Santa Cruz Plumbing, Inc. do the work.
Some utility companies require master plumber repair after a leak
If your utility company switches off your gas service because of a leak, they might not switch it back on until you can show them evidence that a professional made the repair. This protects you, your home, and neighboring properties.
A leak means that you should leave the house right away. It's nothing to wait and think on. Call the utility company, Santa Cruz (or other) fire department or both from a safe place - not from inside your home. Gas has a special odor additive that makes it easy to recognize. If you've had a new line installed or repair made and smell that odor, it's a sign to get out quick and call us.
Professional work protects your investments
Gas appliances have remained a home owner favorite for generations. Gas kitchen ranges, water heaters, furnaces, clothes dryers, fireplaces and other appliances work efficiently and provide immediate heat. They're also not exactly cheap.
When you hire us to run a new gas line, install a new gas appliance and perform maintenance and repair, you're protecting your investment. Where a do-it-yourselfer can probably detect the smell of gas, we can install everything right the first time and keep it safe and in good working order.
Installed right, any utility can almost seem to fade into the background and not get much attention. And that's the way that it ought to be. You shouldn't have to worry when you turn on the tap whether your gas water heater is safe. And you shouldn't have to wonder when you use your gas fireplace whether any dangerous fumes are leaking into your home.
Gas service is warm, reliable and perfectly safe when the work is done right. If you're in Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito or Santa Clara County, call Santa Cruz Plumbing at (831) 425-1131 or contact us online, and you'll have a comfortable home plus peace of mind.
