When building or renovating our home, you may wonder which energy system to use for cooking. A completely legitimate question because it impacts all the utensils you will own, but also your way of cooking. Not all pans will be usable and not all ways of cooking will be possible either, for example having better cooking on a gas device. In this article we will see together how does a gas stove work?
1 / Installation
Installation is fairly straightforward in most cases. There are pipes near your house that carry gas throughout your neighborhood, so you all have a common gas source. A simple connection is then enough to connect your house to a gas source. The gas will be circulated constantly, so even if you have a power cut you will still have gas in the majority of cases.
2 / Gas routing
The connection to your house is done underground in the majority of cases, so you will not have pipes protruding from the ground that could be unsightly. The connecting pipes go back up when you get to your house and will be visible. In general, a meter and a system to cut off the gas supply will not be far away.
3 / Maintenance
Being in a closed circuit, the gas lines do not require a lot of maintenance. Special care may be taken in the event of severe weather or natural disaster to verify that the pipes have not been damaged. If a pipe is damaged it can be smelled quite easily because the gas has a relatively unpleasant odor, which makes it very easily detectable. If the pipes are damaged under the ground, the grass may change color, which will give you a good indication.
4 / Combustion
There are two types of combustion for your gas cookers, one is called pilot light and the other is called electronic ignition system. The pilot light is a system that makes it easy to use gas because a flame is constantly lit. The other system is more common and much more affordable is the electronic ignition system. This system only activates when in use.
