Do I Need A Gas Line?

It seems as though summer has come to Edmonton early this year! With the onset of the warmer weather, you and your family are sure to be spending more time outside. Do you have a propane barbecue or a gas barbecue?

Gas Barbecues vs Propane

As the sun comes out more often, you’re likely to spend more time outside.  One of the best ways to soak up the summer sun is to host some barbecues in your garden.

Just imagine it, you come home from work on a beautiful Thursday evening, the sun is shining and the sky is clear.  You have a few sausages in the fridge that are just asking to be cooked.  This calls for a mid-week barbecue!

There’s just one problem – you’re out of propane!

A switch to an outdoor gas line could help if you’re someone that uses a lot of propane tanks.  You will always have gas ready for spontaneous barbecues and the gas supplied from your main gas line is around 1/6th of the cost of propane tanks.

Those savings will certainly add up over time and make your decision to upgrade to an outdoor gas line a very smart one.

With this warmer weather come BBQ season! If you BBQ a lot, and are continually going through propane tanks, installing a gas line to your grill might be the perfect solution.

There are many benefits to having an outdoor gas line installed. Outdoor gas lines are great for those who want to BBQ a lot. Depending on your home, gas lines can run from your furnace room through your basement ceiling and out onto your patio. Alternatively, if an indoor gas line cannot be installed at your meter, we can run one along the foundation of your home.

 

Patio Heater

There are more benefits to having an outdoor gas line than just being able to hook up your BBQ. In addition to having access to your BBQ without worrying if your propane tank is empty, you can also use your outdoor gas line to provide your friends and family with patio heating!

Even on the hottest days, the thermometer can really drop at night. Patio heaters are a great solution for cooler nights because they allow you to enjoy your patio for longer! Outdoor patio heaters create the perfect summer entertainment area, and makes any temperature dependent event a breeze.

While most propane BBQs can be converted to gas, it might be more cost effective to purchase a new gas barbecue. If you are not sure, just give us a call and we can find the best solution for you and your home.
