    Bought a new place last year with a gas Furnace. I was kinda stoked because I had always heard about how energy efficient they are. Boy was I let down. In 14 days my Gas went from 70% to 0%, in a 500 Gallon Tank. I was left waiting for the gas company for 7 days and I said to myself that Gas...

    So I have a grill that needs a new orifice and I’ve checked everywhere and nobody carries it. To buy it from the manufacture they make you buy all new gas lines and regulator too. The part is basically just a 1 1/4 inch long and with 1/4, 28 thread. It’s basically in the shape of a rod or bolt...

    I'm installing a new flexible gas line to my old dryer, do I need to replace this valve as well? It works fine, it opens and closes freely without any struggle whatsoever. The handle actually quite loose, I don't know if that's bad

    I did a DIY replacement of an electronic gas valve in my aging trane furnace last year. I used rector seal on all the joints, and did a gas leak check using soapy water(all passed). The furnace operated for a few weeks before the weather started getting warmer with no issues. Fast forward to...

    hi, currently my stove is placed in the middle of the kitchen wall and i want to put it in the corner and turn it 90 degrees (so it faces front but related to the adjacent wall). a person/repair suggested that the only thing that'd need to happen is to extend the flexible line to where the stove...

    My heating system is losing pressure and now requires topping up daily via the filling loop in order for the boiler to work. I have a Vaillant Eco boiler with a large tank in the loft. The filling tap is located next to the tank in the loft. There is a pressure gauge next to both the tank and...

    I need to tap into the existing natural gas line under my house in the crawlspace to power a tankless water heater. The problem, of course, is I have a fireplace and a range that are downstream from the point at which I need to tap in. It's impractical to unscrew every single fitting after the...

    I was looking at my gas meter and am a bit confused. It looks like there are very small pipes connected to the meter that may be choking off the gas supply. I have 1" coming in from the city, which goes into those tiny 90° pipes in and out of the meter, then to a 3/4" tee to the furnace (the...

    I am in the process of installing a natural gas-powered outside tankless water heater. It's a small house, so I want it installed on an exterior wall to save space inside. The issue I'm running into is clearances around the heater. I have a very small spot where it can be installed on the back...

    I want to install a 30k BTU LP vent free heater in my shop, which is about 80' total from a location in my house where the gas line for my appliances, HVAC, water heater, etc has a spare outlet capped off for future use. Its a 3/4" LP line, the black coated flexible metal type), after my outside...

    I have a Maytag gas furnace (sorry, not sure of model, but its newer high efficiency kind) and its started short cycling. When the thermostat commands heat, the furnace draft fan will start, then the igniter comes on, then gas starts and flame is instant, but then the gas cuts off in 1-2...

    Hello There, I was hoping I could get an idea how some of you might handle this. A couple years ago my Carrier GX-042090301AD packaged HVAC rooftop unit stopped providing heat in the middle of winter. When I turned it on you could hear the unit try to start and then after a while when close by...

    I am needing to disable the gas to my house because the last owner apparently did not add a gas shut off valve to the oven. I have never done this and would like to not explode. I attached pictures of my gas water heater (pics 2 and 3) and the gas shut off valve on my AC unit (pic 4, I think it...

    We have had this problem on an off for a couple of years. Heat won't come on most of the time. Fan only works, but as soon as we turn the heat on the fan stops. Sometimes it works, maybe later in the afternoon, for a while, then not again. We have had a repair guy out 2 or 3 times. He says...

    I recently purchased a 100K BTU 96% Goodman furnace for my house. It is 2 stage natural gas with multi speed 5 Ton blower. My return ducts are currently 10"x24" which I believe will only supply 1600CFM max but the furnace requires 2000CFM. An HVAC pro told me that the furnace is too big for my...

    I have 2 natural gas Lennox furnaces in my attic, Im at work but i think the model is G60UH(x)? The issue Im having is that the one furnace lately has begun to fail to light the gas so the watchdog stop is from attempting to spool up again. I can reset the thermostat by switching it to off wait...

    Hello! New to the forums and relatively new to homeownership + DIY home improvement. Looking forward to learning new stuff from this community. My 1940s home's wood-burning brick fireplace was replaced (I'd guess 15 yrs ago?) with a gas line and set of fake logs. The gas line runs up from the...

    I have a Weil-McLain EG-45 SPDN Gas Pilot boiler for my house. I started to have problems about a year ago where the spill-switch would get stuck, causing the Vent Damper to stop working, therefore no heating until I would have to manually press the little button on the spill-switch to re-start...

    I have a 30-year-old Coleman gas furnace heater located in my attic. Lately it had been shutting off too soon, before it had reached the temperature I set on the thermostat. It also seemed to take extra long for the blower to come on after I turn the heat up… Sometimes five minutes or so. When I...

    I'm asking for input/advice on either pulling out the vertical 3/4" line and replacing it with a 1" or, much easier to run, a second 3/4" line. Other than installing the pipe in the wall, a plumber will be doing the rest of the work. I live in N. VA, Fairfax county. Brick house is a ranch...
