Keeping Gas Lines Safe
Which Gas Lines Do You Need To Maintain?
Natural gas lines may develop corrosion over time and begin to leak. Not catching this in time to prevent the leakage of gas can result in unsafe conditions for you, your family, and your neighbors.
When you own a propane tank, all the gas lines will be your responsibility to maintain. When you use natural gas through a local municipality like San Antonio, you’ll be responsible for maintaining all the lines leading from the gas meter to your home, as well as all the gas lines inside your home.

Why Boerne Residents Add Natural Gas Lines in Their Homes?
Natural gas and propane are a versatile source of energy. Appliances like water heaters, furnaces, dryers and cook tops can all utilize natural gas. In addition, it’s an excellent choice for powering your outdoor kitchen cooking appliances.
There are also alternatives to directly using propane to power your appliances. With efficient generators available today, homeowners are beginning to install propane tanks to power generators that in turn power the major appliances in their home. This not only saves money in heating costs, but also provides an alternate energy source in times of inclement weather.
When you’re ready for an estimate for installing the gas lines for a new propane tank or for new natural gas appliances in your Boerne area home, give us a call and we’ll schedule a residential service call for your free quote.
Gas Services Performed by Olde Town Plumbing in Boerne
Gas Water Heater Installation
Homeowners in the Texas Hill Country find that gas water heaters are a cost-efficient source of hot water. In fact, heating your hot water with natural gas is 60% less expensive than using electricity. In addition, gas water heaters are dependable. In gas hot water tanks, water is heated by a gas-fired burner beneath the tank increasing the efficiency and speed with which the water is heated. The recovery time for gas water heaters can be up to 2X faster than in electric units. If you’re ready to have a new gas water heater installed, give us a call. Because improper installation poses significant safety risks, gas water heater installation is best left to the experts. You can trust our experienced and licensed plumbers to do the job right.

Or maybe you want to change from an electric stove to a gas model. Gas stoves can be cheaper to operate than electric models. And most folks prefer the temperature control of a gas stove. Olde Town Plumbing can help make your buying experience and the installation of your new gas appliance go smoothly. We’re gas plumbing experts licensed in gas appliance and stove installation. Call today and schedule an appointment with one of our certified gas plumbers.
Gas Water Heater Repair
When your gas water heater isn’t working properly or stops working altogether, it’s a major inconvenience. If your water isn’t getting hot enough or you have low hot water water-pressure, these are a few signs your water heater could be failing. Gas water heaters, like electric units, need regular maintenance to continue to function properly. The tank needs to be flushed regularly to remove the build-up of mineral deposits. If left unflushed, the sediment build-up will form a layer on the bottom of the unit and impede the heating of your water. In addition, repairs may be in order if the pilot light won’t light or the gas line valve is clogged, or if you suspect a leak in the gas valves or pipes, or your gas water heater is not working properly. Call us immediately to assess the situation and provide you with top-rated professional gas water heater repair in Boerne and the surrounding Texas Hill Country.
Fireplace Gas Lines for Fire Logs or Starter Installed
