Gas Stove Installation in Calgary by Tight Lines Plumbing and Heating

Understanding The Benefits And The Risks

Having a gas stove installed is a great way to heat your Calgary home, particularly if you have an attachment to a natural gas supply line. Understanding the risks involved with improperly installed or maintained natural gas stoves is the key to safely using them for years.

With any sort of heating device, there are risks that can vary widely depending on how they are used. The risks that gas stoves pose can be very low if used properly and thoroughly maintained over time, but they can be quite high if they are not.

Natural gas is made up of methane, which is odorless and colorless. If there are leaks, then it poses a great danger to you and your family. When using the stove, there might be small leaks and cracks with the gas line due to wear and tear over time without you being aware of them. To avoid encountering an explosion or a fire in your home or business premises, you must ensure that you choose the right contractor for your gas stove installation project.

Your gas stove could provide many years of trouble-free service if it is installed properly. When you have Tight Lines Plumbing and Heating install your stove, we will follow national safety standards to ensure that the stove and its vent are installed correctly.

Save Yourself From A Big Utility Bill

Gas stoves have another, unheralded feature: they can save you money on your monthly utility bill. Gas stoves cost less to operate than electric ranges, and it has a direct impact on your pocketbook in the end.

Why Choose Gas?

Gas fireplaces also have a significant energy efficiency advantage, in general, over wood-burning types. Gas fireplaces provide more heat relative to their consumption of energy, making them an efficient use of the gas that they burn. Gas fireplaces can also be bought with features such as thermostats and automatic ignition that allow you to control the temperature of the room more effectively.

As if that weren't enough, gas fireplaces are a lot more convenient. If you already have a propane hook-up, installing a gas fireplace in your home is a piece of cake. No wood to store. No ashes to dispose of. Just turn a knob to regulate the heat, and enjoy!

Gas Fireplace Installation in Calgary

Of course, deciding to add a gas fireplace isn’t the same as actually doing it. Before you get too deep into your dream of a new fireplace, you need to find out what it takes to make your dream a reality. Installing a gas fireplace requires you to consider many different factors and take things slow so that you don’t make any mistakes.

  • Do you want direct-vented or an unvented gas fireplace?

When you hear the term “ventless gas fireplace” or “vent-free fireplace,” it is important to remember that such fireplaces do not have a vented flue pipe. Rather, they rely on natural (or forced) combustion, in which outside air is drawn by the draft through the firebox and exits out the top of the fireplace unit, taking unburned gases and other combustion by-products along with it. Vent-free fireplaces are likely to be more aesthetic than energy efficient.

  • What is the ROI (Return On Investment) for installing a gas fireplace?

Gas fireplace installation in Calgary sounds like a costly home improvement project. However, when you look at the bigger picture, it’s clear that a gas fireplace is worth the initial expense as it will pay for itself in no time – not to mention increase the value of your home.

  • What are your heating requirements?

What are your home heating requirements? If you think the answer is “it depends,” you might be a homeowner who can benefit from a gas fireplace or fireplace insert. Gas fireplaces and inserts offer fast heat that can be customized just like the temperature control of your home. With a gas fireplace, Wi-Fi remote controls, and multi-source convection systems, you can adjust settings to fit any room in your home. So whether you need a quick boost of warm air after letting the dog out in the morning or a place to hibernate with a good book and glass of wine, zone heating with an energy-efficient gas fireplace can fit the bill.

For a lot of people, the biggest worry about getting a gas fireplace is whether it will be safe. Many people imagine leaking gas or hazardous carbon monoxide leaks when they think of gas fireplaces. However, modern gas fireplaces have extensive safety measures to prevent these problems from occurring. As with any appliance that burns fuel, you should make sure to read the operating instructions carefully and only use the fireplace if you know how to safely operate it.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q1) Can I install a gas line myself?
    A1) When you are a homeowner, there are some projects that you can do and there are other projects that require professional help. Generally, installing a gas line is one of the tasks that you should leave up to the professionals. Gas lines involve several factors which make this a job best left to experts.
    Q2) How do you install a gas stove top?
    A2) Installing an electric, gas or a dual-fuel stove is an exciting event. However, before you can start cooking up a delicious range of food for your family and friends, you need to get it installed properly. Gas oven installation is not a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) project and you should avoid taking up this task yourself if you do not know what you are doing.
    Q3) Can gas lines freeze?
    A3) Natural gas is a mixture of mostly methane and small amounts of several other gases. It has been found that this “natural gas” can form a “slushy ice like substance.”, scientific studies show the mixture of these gases reacts with water at atmospheric pressures and moderate temperatures to form a solid substance called “ice-like gas hydrates.”
