What do I need to know about the options here?
A new gas line for a fireplace insert would have to run about 70 to 90 feet, depending on the routing from the meter. My HVAC dealer, who does not sell fireplaces, says I'll likely want a split gas meter to have a smaller diameter line making the run. The sales lady where I have decided to buy an insert says the gas company charges $200 for the split meter. Her installer will have to tell me the pros and cons of doing this compared to running a low pressure line.
By the way, my HVAC guy said something about needing a tag on the gas line every two feet???
Can I paint over the ugly yellow line that I expect to see?
