If you’ve decided to add a new gas appliance to your home, such as a dryer, stove, or water heater, you’re probably wondering “how much does it cost to get a gas line installed?” If it’s an outside appliance, it’s possible to have the gas line extended.
However, most scenarios will require you to install a completely new gas line. On rare occasions, if the appliance is small and you have a rarely used gas line available, it may be possible to make use of it and save up to 75% of the cost.
You will want to discuss your needs with a professional gas installer, as jobs are rarely straightforward enough to warrant doing it yourself. Most installations go beyond simply installing a new gas line because of differences in old connections and pipes.
Also, extending a line may not always be the most efficient method. Only professionals possess the skills necessary for determining whether there is enough capacity in an existing line or not.
Costs of Getting a Gas Line Installed
Plumbers qualified to install gas lines will typically charge an hourly rate of between $45 to $65 per hour. The average gas line installation can take between 2 to 4 hours so your labor costs will be between $90 and $260.
Depending on the type of gas line installed (flexible, black iron, or copper), your costs will vary between $1 per linear foot, up to $8 per linear foot. Your professional gas installation service will be able to guide you in the right type of material for your home and provide a more accurate costing.
PVC conduit for the gas line acts as an extra layer of protection against damage and leaks and costs between $1 and $3 per foot. Gas line installers will use PVC conduit in heavily trafficked areas, and locations prone to natural disasters or which have shifting earth.
