Gas Line Installation & Repair in Avon, OH

Gas Line Installation & Repair in Avon, OH

One of the things I love about this business is the ability to solve problems for other people. So when I got a call from a local owner of a family owned green house in the Avon, Ohio area stating the gas company had just shut off the gas due to code violations, I was eager to stop by the property and take a look.

What I found was a very large green house attached to an old farm-house with four large space heaters that shared the same gas line as the house did.

The problem was that over the years as the heaters were added the gas line installation that was once big enough for the farm-house couldn’t support the added space heaters. To add to this the gas lines were leaking and in need of gas line repairs.

With a large amount of gas line repairs and the existing gas line installation under-sized for the application I knew the gas lines would have to be replaced.

After performing a load calculation I found that a 2″ gas line would have to be installed to meet the demand of the farm-house and the green house. The cost to perform the installation of the 2″ gas line was going to be hefty and didn’t set well with me.

As I gave this some thought I decided to convert the gas line system into a 2 p.s.i system. Running the system at a higher than normal pressure enabled me to reduce the size of the gas line installation down to 1-1/4″ pipe and save my client 40% on the gas line installation cost.

The job was easier to install which cut down on cost and put a smile on my client’s face.
