We just remodeled our kitchen and put in a new 60,000 BTU Miele gas cook top. (Had I known this would be an issue I wouldn't have done it this way.) When the contractor's plumber came out to run the gas line for the cook top he refused. He said we needed a larger gas line into the house and would only run a new line from the gas meter on the other side of our rather large home. In addition to the $3800 to run the line, we also would have to pay to redo the finished ceiling in our rec room. I called out three other plumbers for an estimate and an opinion. In addition, I talked with a sv from the gas company. The consensus was the best thing to do would be to put in the new larger gas line, BUT it would be worth trying to run the line from the furnace area to the cook top AND have a larger gas meter installed (this was free of charge). We may eventually have to put in a new line but we should be able to put it off at least til next winter. If we're careful about not using all gas appliances at once we may be ok and not have to replace the line. All three of the other plumbers were willing to just connect the line. Accent's price to put in a new line was the least expensive but his price to just connect to the cook top was slightly more. However, we felt he was the most knowledgeable, runs his own company and does the work himself so we selected Accent. He arrived near the appointment time, was clean and ready to go to work. When I went to check on him in the basement he was just finishing up. He came upstairs and turned on the burners to be sure the gas worked ok and had already checked for any leaks. He presented a bill, took off the $30 from his Angies List coupon, I gave him a check and we're all happy! Except now after 4 months I once again have a stove to cook on. Darn!
