Plumbing and Gas: Going Beyond the Traditional Plunger

The essential services we need in our homes to live comfortably are electricity, gas, and water. Of these three, water and gas are closely related. When we think of plumbing, we typically think of clogged toilets, leaky faucets, or burst pipes. On the other hand, we use gas to heat our homes, water, ovens, and so on. What the two systems have in common are pipes. 

Plumber and Gas Fitter: What’s the Difference?

While the two roles may seem intertwined (which they are as both work with pipes and fittings), plumbers and gas fitters need different training, qualifications, and licenses to work. Plumbers work with water-based systems repairing, installing, or disconnecting pipes and fixtures. Gas fitters, on the other hand, work with furnaces, heaters, gas lines, stoves, and more. Some plumbers have the necessary qualifications to work on both your gas and your plumbing systems. In the realm of plumbing and gas services, moving beyond basic tools like plungers is essential for addressing complex issues effectively. Modern plumbing solutions require a comprehensive approach, especially when it comes to maintenance and repair of essential appliances like water heaters. For specialized assistance and advanced troubleshooting, my sources offer detailed insights and expert services to ensure your systems function optimally and safely.

Advantages of Hiring a Company That Can Take Care of Both Your Plumbing and Gas Needs

There are several advantages to keeping in touch with a company that offers both plumbing and gas services. 

  • One-Stop: You have one point of contact for your gas and plumbing needs. So, if there’s something wrong with your boiler, you don’t need to worry about whether you should be calling your gas agency or your plumber.
  • Highly Trained: The technicians who work with both water and gas systems are highly trained. This means that they should be able to pinpoint your issue and suggest the right course of action in a short period of time without having to call others in.
  • Maintain Overall Health of Your Home: As the water and gas systems are interconnected in many ways, having regular inspections of your property can help prevent problems before they occur. Having one person inspect both systems means there are fewer chances of issues being overlooked where the systems overlap. 
  • Emergency Services: While regular inspections are necessary to make sure your systems are working as they should, emergencies can and do occur. A reputed company will offer emergency services both plumbing and gas services.
  • Insured: Apart from having personnel with the right qualifications to carry out the work you need, the company will also have its insurance in place. This means that you and your property are protected, even if there is an accident at home while the work is being carried out.
