Gas Work

Will removing an old gas fire (its not being replaced, just removed) involve lifting the flooring?

depends on where the connections are ,but as always with gas you should get a gas safe engineer to carry out the disconnection and have it signed off properly

Hi there,you would not have to lift floors as the fire supply pipe can be capped at the pedestal cock or concealed pipe from behind.depending on how it is piped..

It all depends were the gas connection is. Ideally there will be an isolation valve on one side of the fireplace. The valve should be removed and the pipe that entered the valve should be capped off. If the pipe comes in behind the fire it should be cut back as far away from the builders opening as possible, then capped of with an appropriate fitting.By a gas safe engineer of course.
