Common Gas Hookup Codes

To safely install and connect any new gas appliances, there are important plumbing codes that must be followed. Trying to skip steps risks hazardous exhaust issues, gas leaks causing fire/explosions, or appliance malfunctions.

Pioneer Plumbing & Restoration always remains fully up-to-date on local building codes and manufacturer appliance standards. We confirm that any installation or hookup work meets the latest adopted versions of codes including:

International Fuel Gas Code

Issued by the International Code Council, the IFGS applies to newly installed gas piping systems, appliances, venting and more. Key areas covered:

  • Gas pipe sizing
  • Appliance locations
  • Venting specifications
  • Allowable materials
  • Pressure testing procedures
  • Combustion air amounts

Following IFGC is vital to avoid ventilation or leakage issues.

Illinois State Codes

We adhere to the governing plumbing, mechanical and fuel gas guides outlined by the state of Illinois:

  • Illinois Plumbing Code – Covers supply lines, DWV, joints, traps and cleanout specifications.
  • Illinois Energy Conservation Code – Outlines insulation, efficiency standards and testing requirements.
  • Illinois Fuel Gas Code – Details gas piping allowances, fitting standards and more statewide mandates.

This ensures all gas appliance hook ups and connections abide by Illinois regulations.

Manufacturer Instructions

Every appliance maker provides unit-specific requirements for approved installation and hookup methods. Our technicians follow included guidelines to maintain warranties like:

  • Wall/ceiling/floor clearances
  • Venting distances & materials
  • Allowable orientation
  • Gas valve sizes and inlet pressures
  • Electrical connections

Gas Appliance Hookup Costs & Pricing

We provide upfront estimates after an initial on-site consultation so there will be no surprise charges. Costs for gas appliance hookup services depend on a number of factors including:

  • Type of Appliance – More complex units like furnaces or commercial equipment have higher labor/parts costs than basic water heaters. Wall mounted space heaters fall on the simpler, most affordable end.
  • Fuel Source – Converting from electric to gas or installing LPG/propane hookups require additional components, permitting and testing to meet enhanced safety precautions.
  • Scope of Work – If existing gas lines run nearby and are sound, hookup is fairly straightforward. But whole new piping system installs or running lines longer distances can drive pricing.
  • Labor Time – The actual hookup process takes 2 – 5 hours typically but doesn’t account for permitting approval delays and driving between project stops which can add hourly labor fees.
  • Access Considerations – Tight spaces, having to navigate stairs, or outdoor installs impact the work which translates to costs.

With those variables in mind, typical ballpark costs for gas appliance hookup services are:

  • Gas Stove/Range – $150 – $350
  • Gas Water Heater – $400 – $850
  • Gas Furnace – $700 – $1,500
  • Gas Fireplace – $900 – $2,500
  • Commercial Equipment – $1,000+

Bulk discounts may apply if installing multiple new gas appliances at once. Maximum prices reflect difficult access scenarios or running all new gas supply lines.

FAQs About Gas Appliance Hookups

For additional details about what’s entailed for new gas appliance installation and hookup projects, refer the most frequently asked questions we receive:

For most residential hookup jobs, clients source the actual appliance like a tankless water heater, range or furnace directly themselves. We can make recommendations and confirm proper sizing. For some commercial jobs, we supply necessary equipment bundled into project pricing.
Ideally gas appliances should only be installed after all finishes like drywall and cabinets are complete to prevent damage during construction. We need access to route any new gas lines prior to hookup as well.
From starting connections to full testing, most standard gas appliance hookups take 2 – 5 hours depending on access to lines, performance testing and paperwork filing. More complex commercial-grade or specialty equipment can run 6+ hours.
An adult does need to be onsite during the full installation, hookup and testing process. We require customer signatures on completion paperwork plus you’ll want to see system function and learn maintenance needs.

Yes, city permits and inspections apply to most gas appliance installs and hookups. We take care of submitting paperwork, scheduling inspection appointments and final sign off on your behalf as part of service.
