Installing a Gas Line for a Jen-Aire....


I have an Electric Jen-Aire Cook Top that I would like to replace with a new Gas Jen-Aire Cook Top. It is located on and Interior Island within our kitchen about 8' in from an exterior wall. I have a slab concrete floor, is there any way to run a gas line in thru the Jen-Aire Down Draft Vent Chase from the outside of my house. Note; my Gas Meter is about 15' from the Vent opening. Any help or ideas on this would be great. Thanks

It isn't legal to run a gas line through a duct. Not safe either. You may run it in the same chase.

Maintenance 6, are you saying that I will have to bust my slab out to get a gas line to this island.

If I cannot run a secure gas line in thru this 6" vent line I guess it is out of the question to install a gas cooktop in my house.

Time to sell, my wife will be ticked, my life is over, why did I ever buy this house. I know, I know get a hold of myself.

Thanks

I'm saying you dare not run a gas line in a duct. You can run it in the same chase, but not inside the duct. There is always electric.
