Got gas?

Not what you think.

At the end of the month, I'm having a guy come run a natural gas line from one side of my house (only thing NG in my house is the fireplace) up the outside, across the attic, and down an interior wall for a gas range.

I've cooked on gas before, but never owned... very, very excited to finally have a house with a gas cook top, but what are your experiences? I know the basics, like heat is immediate, less residual heat available, cook times are faster... but what else should I know?

Hmm. While I have no experience working with gas stoves, everything else that I have worked on with a gas valve has either a thermocouple or flame sensor to prevent this sort of thing. I find it odd that a gas stove wouldn't.

This happened to me on a older gas stove. The newer stoves could be equipped with thermocouple or a sensor not sure about older models. It was pretty bad, I smelled the gas outside about 10 ft away from the front door.

Right when I walked in I instantly got light headed. It was probably leaking by for about 6-7 hours.

I've cooked on both electric and gas burners and there are ways to make both work well. As has been said before, know your equipment.
We looked at several dual fuels but couldn't find anything I really liked until we moved into the >$4K range, which I'm not willing to spend on an oven just yet. So we're going about $1,200 on a decent (fully) gas with convection (and an on/off switch for the convection, which is an important feature for some applications).

Yeah, we are. It's something we've been saving for and decided to make the plunge because we figure to be in this house for a while. Our guy is figuring about 8 hours, actually (same estimate from two other guys, as well). The issue isn't running it up the side or through the attic, but there's no straight drop down to the kitchen.

This. Can't imagine going to an electric cook top. My next setup will be exactly what you have, gas top, electric oven.

It's code here for gas pipe joints to be welded. Just a thought if your guy hasn't mentioned it.

Not sure what it is in AL, but I know for a fact our guy is fully certified, licensed and bonded. Even found him on the state's website with certification good until 2014.

Not sure about that. When I built my house the plumber got the gas lines all welded then hooked an air compressor with gauge up to it and left it over night to make sure there were no leaks.

Yep, sounds like you done your research. Enjoy your gas stove, wish I could switch myself. I don't care for electric stoves. Apartments suck.

Haha. Yeah, I figured if I was going to let a guy potentially blow up my house, I shouldn't necessarily go with the cheapest guy out there - a friend who isn't licensed but used to be a plumber. Sorry, dude. You're not installing my gas line.

I have Analon advanced pans, and I use them on gas stoves without any problems at all.

Gas is great, and you can still cook when the power goes out. Just remember to keep some matches around. If you've got a big enough kitchen to had two stoves/ovens, making one gas is a great idea.

Nope, not two stoves. Just one. But my house is all electric except the fireplace. My meter is directly on the other side of the wall from the fireplace, so the only line into my house is about 8-inches. I've wanted gas at the last four places we've lived, and finally will be getting my wish.

I should have been more clear, sorry. I didn't word that well. I've generally had a big kitchen with two stoves, and I've always made sure that one stove was gas, because gas is a great option to use. It's basically instant heat, it can still be used when the power goes out, and it's easier to adjust than electric once you get the hang of it.
