Gas BBQ Lines

Now You’re Cooking!

Gas BBQ LinesFather’s Day is just around the corner – June 15 in case you need a nudge – and how many Dads out there love the combination of fire and raw meat? Bring out the barbecue! Summer is here.

And when it comes to that gleaming steel-and-chrome BBQ, who wants to spend a weekend schlepping propane tanks or worrying that the flames will fizzle before the steaks are done?  There is a better way.

Get Gas…With a Natural Gas BBQ line

Consider natural gas. It’s got a lot to recommend it – it burns cleaner than propane, is often cheaper to use and it’ll never run out. What’s not to love about that?

With so many of us using our patios, balconies and backyards as an extension of our living spaces, comfort and convenience are a high priority. After all, summer is short in Calgary – we all want to make the most of it! Fortunately, there are a ton of outdoor recreational appliances that can be run off a gas line from your home. We’ve already mentioned barbecues but patio heaters – very popular for Calgary’s cool nights – spas and even outdoor pizza ovens can all be run via your outdoor gas line.

A quick breeze through many design sites will show you the possibilities really are endless. From gorgeous contemporary fire bowls to stone fireplaces that look like they belong in Architectural Digest to full-and-efficient outdoor kitchens, natural gas can definitely have a place in your summer.

BBQ Gas Line Installation

First, a warning. If your home does not currently have a gas line going out to your porch or patio, this is not a do-it-yourself project. Leave this installation to a professional – which is where we come in! Instant Plumbing technicians are qualified and accredited to do any gasfitting services you require. Just give us a call and we’ll be pleased to make an appointment for you so we can give you specific information to suit your needs and situation.

On that note, permits are required by the City of Calgary for all gas lines for either new builds or renovations. Whatever you’re planning, please ensure that the proper steps are being taken. Take a look at our contracting tips. . . If a contractor isn’t getting a permit, he’s exposing you to risk and complications down the road.
