I am in the process of converting to gas. I need to get gas to my range and dryer and the only way to get their is through the ceiling. The Ceiling joist are going againist the way i have to go so i guess they will have to drill through them. Is this OK? I have had a few estimates and some guys tell me that (CSST) is not safe and is in limbo right now. As of now it is legal in my area. Then another guy who i really like and would like to use says it is safe as long as its done correctly and he says it would be nearly impossible to run reg iron pipe through ceiling joists. Have to go through about 8 of them to get to first to drop a line down for range then to drop a line for dryer. Whats the story with CSST is it safe? Would you guys use it in your house?
As of now i don't know what to do
