Residential Natural Gas Meter Testing & Inspection

When you purchase a home that has had the gas turned off for an extended period, the local gas company requires a permit be pulled as well as a gas pressure test and safety inspection be performed before new gas service can begin. Jacob's Ladder Heating & Cooling are knowledgeable and experienced in handling these gas meter inspections and testing. Call us to assist you in establishing gas service in your new home today!

Running Natural Gas Lines for Outdoor Grills

Gas cooking grills are a welcome addition to any home but having to constantly change LP (liquefied petroleum) tanks can be a nuisance and hassle. Running out of propane unexpectedly and especially just before you’re done grilling is frustrating to say the least. Jacob's Ladder Heating & Cooling can install a new natural gas grill line so that you will never have to worry about running out again. It is less expensive and more convenient to always have access to clean natural gas for your outdoor grill when you need it.

Gas Line Installations for Kitchen Stoves & Ranges

In recent times, gas stoves and cook tops have become more popular than electric due to the lower cost of natural gas and quicker more even cooking temperatures. Jacob's Ladder Heating & Cooling can handle all the necessary gas piping and shut off valves needed to install new gas lines and hookups and well as convert homes with existing electric to gas.

Gas Dryer Installation & Repair

Gas dryers offer a more energy efficient means of drying clothes in comparison to electric dryers but they are more challenging to install. Jacob's Ladder Heating & Cooling has the required specialty tools and is knowledgeable in the connections necessary to properly install a gas dryer.

The Benefits of Natural Gas

The Benefits of Natural Gas

If your home already uses electricity for heating or cooling, you might be wondering if the hassle of adding natural gas is worth it. Below are a few reasons we think every homeowner in Southfield should consider switching to or giving themselves natural gas access:

  1. No More Fuel Deliveries: If you have a propane tank, you know the anxiety and hassle that comes with filling it back up. By having natural gas piped in, all those worries go away.
  2. Quick Heating: Natural gas usually rests above 100°F (38°C). It also retains heat well and doesn’t require much to reach its desired temperature.
  3. Expanded Appliance Selection: Electric appliances are often cited as being weaker than their gas-burning counterparts. There are also some options only offered with gas appliances.
  4. Eco-Friendliness: If you’re concerned about the environment, natural gas is one of the cleanest fuels out there. The only things that beat it are geothermal and radiant heat.

If these things sound like just what your family needs, call Jacob's Ladder Heating & Cooling to get a quote on natural gas hook-up in the Southfield area.
