4 Reasons to Install a BBQ Gas Line Connection

It’s easy to fall in the trap of providing a sales pitch when it comes to purchasing a barbeque. But we’re not here for that. No, we’re here to talk about why you should connect a BBQ to the mains gas line.

Perhaps you’re looking to buy a new barbeque or are interested in converting or connecting a current BBQ. Perhaps you’ve never considered the idea but would still like to know more.

A permanent gas line has its perks when compared to an LPG bottle. It has its perks over electricity. Let’s take a look now at four reasons why you should have a permanent BBQ gas line connection.

1. You’ll always have fuel with a BBQ gas line

The last thing you want to discover moments before the big party is there’s no gas in the bottle. It’s not the end of the world, but if you’re ready for an afternoon of sport or a big Christmas lunch, it’s the last thing you want to deal with.

That stress can be avoided with a permanent connection to the mains gas line. A reliable connection means you can always count on gas and fire up the grill at a moment’s notice.

2. The savings will add up

Using gas over electric is automatically one major cost saver. Using natural gas over LPG is another saver, albeit not as drastic. But with consistent use of your gas barbeque, you’ll see the savings add up, and the hard work lessens.

Forget about regular refilling, or replacing a dented bottle. Forget about driving around as well. Your gas supply is at home ready to go. Regardless of how often you use a BBQ the savings will show. If it’s weekly or once in a blue moon, it does pay to use natural gas.

3. Your gas BBQ can become an outdoor centrepiece

Everyone has their own preference when it comes to cooking and where they like to do it. A permanent gas barbeque connection means you’ll always be in your prime position. Plus, you can build around it as well.

Why not use the natural gas connection as a chance to renovate, adding in an outdoor benchtop, sink and maybe even a fridge! That way your gas BBQ will become a deserving centrepiece for all functions.

There’ll also be no need to drag the dusty thing out of your shed or run back into the house half a dozen times to grab another tray or forgotten ingredient. Nope, this way you can entertain all day long from the comfort of your brilliant outdoor kitchen.

Metropolitan can help you along that journey. With highly trained gas fitters, plumbers and electricians we will have every fixture and pipe perfected to suit your desires.

4. You know it will be safe and certified

Remember the episode of The Simpsons where Homer attempted to piece together his own barbeque and failed miserably? It’s a familiar situation for many Aussies who forge ahead without a full understanding of the job.

That certainly won’t be the case here. Metropolitan Plumbing knows gas fitting. From extending an existing gas line to connecting or converting a BBQ, all our work is certified and completed to the highest safety standards. We can assess any potential gas leaks or determine whether your gas pipes need replacing if they’re too old.

Metropolitan Plumbing wants you to enjoy the finished product, not stress about the process. That’s why we’re ready for any gas barbeque installation or gas fitting job. Call us today and we’ll have you one step closer to a sizzling steak or slow cooked pulled pork.
