What costs are incurred for the gas connection at the house?

A modern gas condensing heating works surprisingly economical, but first of all a connection has to be made. Find out here about regulations and costs for the gas connection to your house.

Worth knowing about your new gas connection

The responsible gasworks will relocate the gas connection from the public gas network to your gas meter and the main stopcock. For this work, they provide you with a cost calculation based on the cable length.

But you can not use your heating yet, you still need an additional gas installation inside the house, which entails further costs. Contact a local plumbing contractor for this.

The costs increase even if there is no gas supply network in your street. It's best to ask your local authority if you are planning a new development on an undeveloped property.

Regulations for the gas connection

The domestic gas connection is subject to the TRGI, the "Technical Rules for Gas Installations" or the TRF "Technical Rules for LPG". Cables laid underground must be 60 cm to about one meter, but no more than 2 m deep.

Inside the house, you may lay your gas pipes either exposed or plastered, without a cavity or in pipe shafts. Never attach other lines to a gas line!
