Gas connection plumbing is performed by licensed plumbers where they will install, repair and maintain them. Gas appliances will need qualified gas plumbers to connect the gas lines to them. Gas hot water systems and gas meters will also need licensed gas fitters to work on them. Here at Optimised Plumbing Services, we offer gas fitting Sydney services where we will perform gas connection plumbing work professionally. 

Gas connection plumbing jobs will be performed by a certified plumber with gas fitting licenses. Line extensions cost from $300 to $700, a new line from the meter costs from $700 – $2500 and a new line from the street costs over $2500. Adding new gas connection plumbing may be needed when new appliances are installed, such as gas heaters, or when a complete renovation is occurring with the gas and plumbing systems.

Who Installs Gas Connection Plumbing?

A plumber is the person who will perform gas fitting services in homes and businesses. Plumbers work on the plumbing side of the home as well as the gas elements that they are taught during their training. Some jobs involving gas connection plumbing are gas installations, repairs and inspections. Working with gas heating, gas hot water systems, gas cooking and other appliances and performing gas leak detections are also included. 

How Much Does Gas Connection Installation Cost?

The cost to perform specific gas connection plumbing work determines where and how difficult the job is. 

Installing New Gas Connection Lines

Job Average Cost Description
Gas Line Extension – 6m $300 to $700 When the home already has gas lines installed and connected the job of adding a new one is more simple. This might be an extension or branch for a new gas appliance being installed.
New Gas Line from the Meter – 6m to 30m $700 – $2500 When a new gas line needs to be installed and also connected to the meter then the costs increase due to the added distance.

A gas line from the street to the home needs to happen, installing gas meters and adding in the interior gas lines all need to occur.
