Really dumb question about new gas line

ChrisJ Member Posts: 15,788
Ok so this question may be pointless but I want to be sure.

Today the gas company is suppose to run the line in from the road and connect to all of the new piping I installed in my house.  I have a power vent water heater hooked up which will be the first appliance to be turned on.

With a new line like this, is there a procedure to bleed air out of the line or do I simply plug the water heater in, turn the gas on and turn the heater on?

    The gas company will light up any

    equipment when they set the gas meter and will also take care of any bleeding of gas lines. This should never be done by anyone who is not a professional.
