How to change gas valve on boiler


I know I've posted about this a number of times already.
We had someone come look at it he said it was that the gas valve needed replacing. He was supposed to do the work today but never showed up?

I'm mechanically inclined with alot of things so if it's basic it shouldn't be a problem.

Is it a big deal replacing that valve?

Yes. There are different types of gas valves depending on the method of opening etc. As well as the dangers of leaks/explosions/liabilities/family safety etc it is best to get a licensed gas fitter to do it.

Some things You will need to know....the voltage, does it open in stages or all at once, inlet outlet size. how many BTU'S are needed for the boiler. If you install this. check for any gas leaks & the operation..

Be safe !
