Question DetailsAsked on 3/7/2012

what type of service man would I hire to run a new gas line for my dryer?A plumber?

We are purchasing a new home, and it has natural gas for the heat as well as the cook top and ovens. The dryer hookup is electric, and we would like to run the gas line about 20 feet to reach the dryer area.

Yes, hire a licensed Master plumber. For work with gas lines get a copy of his insurance before letting him do the work. This can be very dangerous if not done properly. Just because the gas is located within 20 feet of the dryer does not mean that the line is properly sized to run both the dryer and the appliance the existing line supplies. He may have to run a new pipe from the main line. This is another reason why hiring the right person is essential to make sure you don't have a supply problem afterwards.

You can have your heating and cooling system tune-ups performed by HVAC professional company, and they can also install the gas line for you. You need to have the routine annual maintenance performed, so this will save you a call charge(trip fee), and will make the installation cheaper.
