4 Reasons to Install a BBQ Gas Line Connection

Navigating the world of BBQ purchases can often feel like wading through endless sales pitches. However, our focus here is different. We want to explore the substantial benefits of connecting your BBQ to the mains gas line, whether you’re contemplating buying a new barbecue, considering converting your current BBQ, or simply curious about this option.

Opting for a permanent gas line connection for your BBQ offers distinct advantages over traditional LPG bottles and even electricity. In this discussion, we’ll delve into four compelling reasons why a permanent BBQ gas line connection is a smart choice for your grilling needs. From consistent fuel supply to cost efficiency and beyond, understand why this connection is an upgrade worth considering for your barbeque experience.

1. You’ll Always Have Fuel With a BBQ Gas Line

With a high-quality BBQ gas line, you’ll always be ready for summer!

Picture this: it’s your festive Christmas lunch, or the eagerly awaited afternoon where you’ve got mates around to watch the cricket, and you find your gas bottle empty. A scenario like this can easily put the proverbial spanner in your plans.

So why not avoid this inconvenience altogether with a secure connection to the mains gas line? With a durable gas hose and reliable fittings, you can connect to the gas supply seamlessly, and the right hoses and connections make all the difference. This means your burner is always ready to go, and the regulator ensures a steady gas flow for perfect grilling.

2. The Savings Will Add Up

Embrace the cost-effectiveness of using natural gas for your BBQ, a choice that leads to substantial savings compared to electric or LPG options. The financial benefits of using natural gas barbecues become evident with consistent use. Not only do you save money, but you also enjoy the convenience of reduced labour.

Say goodbye to the time and hassle of regular refilling or the need to constantly purchase and replace a damaged LPG bottle. With a home natural gas connection, your gas supply is always ready, eliminating unnecessary trips for gas. Whether you’re a frequent BBQ enthusiast or enjoy occasional grilling, the savings with natural gas are undeniable. Opting for natural gas for your BBQ proves to be a smart, cost-effective decision in the long run.

3. Your Gas BBQ Can Become An Outdoor Centrepiece

Cooking preferences vary, but having a permanent gas BBQ connection ensures you’re always ready for grilling in your favourite spot. This setup is perfect for those who love outdoor cooking and entertaining. Why not seize the opportunity to upgrade your outdoor space? Incorporate a natural gas connection into your renovation plans to create a stunning outdoor kitchen. This could include a sleek outdoor benchtop, a convenient sink, and perhaps even an integrated fridge to enhance your gas BBQ setup, making it the focal point for all your gatherings.

Gone are the days of dragging out a dusty BBQ from the shed or making multiple trips indoors for forgotten items. With everything at your fingertips, you can host effortlessly in your impressive outdoor kitchen. And when it comes to installation, Metropolitan is here to assist. Our team of highly skilled gas fitters, plumbers, and electricians are dedicated to ensuring every fixture and pipe is tailored to your exact needs, making your outdoor cooking dreams a reality.

4. You Know It’ll Be Safe and Certified

Recall that iconic episode of ‘The Simpsons’ where Homer’s DIY barbeque attempt was a big-time disaster? It’s a scenario many Australians can relate to when tackling gas fitting without proper knowledge. But with Metropolitan Plumbing, such mishaps are a thing of the past. We are experts in gas fitting, adept at tasks like extending gas lines, connecting or converting BBQs. Our gas fitters ensure all work is certified and adheres to the strictest safety standards. We’re equipped to handle any potential gas leaks and check if your gas pipes require replacement due to age.

Gas Hoses: The Necessity of a Licensed Gas Fitter

When it comes to connecting gas hoses to your mains supply, hiring a licensed gas fitter is crucial. This is not just a recommendation but a safety necessity. Licensed gas fitters possess the required expertise and training to handle highly flammable natural gas safely. They ensure that all connections are secure and leak-free, thus preventing potential gas leaks, which can lead to serious accidents or even explosions. Moreover, using a professional ensures compliance with local safety regulations and standards, thereby protecting your home’s safety and maintaining insurance validity. In essence, a licensed gas fitter is your safeguard against risks associated with gas installations.

At Metropolitan Plumbing, we believe in delivering a stress-free experience for your gas barbeque installation or any gas fitting needs. Our aim is for you to relish the end result – be it sizzling steaks or perfectly slow-cooked pulled pork – without worrying about the installation process. Reach out to us today, and we’ll ensure you’re just a step away from enjoying your ideal outdoor culinary experience.
