Too large of natural gas line?
Hello all, first time poster, short time reader, lol.
Maybe this is a dumb question, but are there any issues with running a larger than needed gas line? I have a large meter installed at my house, and will be running the gas line for a water heater, furnace, cook top, dryer, and possible outside grill and generator.
I have looked up the tables for the minimum pipe size based on total runs and assuming worst case usage (all on at the same time), but I am curious if there is ever an issue with running larger than needed pipe?
Based on the btu requirements, I was planning on running 1 1/4" pipe from the meter till the first T. Is there any issues running 1 1/2" instead? From all of my searches I haven't seen anything, nor does common sense tell me that it would be an issue.
I would just like some confirmation before I begin the process.
