You probably know that Trenchless Replacement Specialists is your solution for pipe replacement without digging. Most of the time, these are sewer and water line replacements, but we are certified to install gas lines as well. Natural gas and propane provide heat and power for many homes in West Texas. They can supply power for appliances such as furnaces, stoves, pools, baths – and yes, even your backyard grill! In this post, we’ll discuss some of the reasons that only a professional should install a gas line!


Gas can provide some great upgrades for your home, but you should always be careful around propane due to its flammability. In the right circumstances, just a spark could cause a fire or even an explosion. The experts at Trenchless Replacement Specialists are highly trained and qualified to deal with propane. Not only will they install your gas line, but they can also provide safety pointers for usage.

High levels of propane can also be dangerous if inhaled. If there’s enough propane in the air, it can cause headaches, nausea, fatigue, and, in severe cases, loss of consciousness or suffocation. It can be similar to carbon monoxide, which is colorless and odorless, but can cause chest pain or even death.


Again, using a gas line for cooking or other energy needs is a great alternative to electricity for certain household items. The real danger is in the set up of the lines for new homes or businesses, or those wishing to add gas lines. Licensed professionals, like the ones at TRS, receive extensive safety training. We also have all the proper tools and equipment for testing to ensure that lines are correctly installed and avoid any leaks.
