would your building allow you to run a dedicated line to your range? i've seen ranges like the one you want in similar buildings near you and i think i've seen a 60 inch in your building. i'd be more worried about adequate exhaust for 6 burners and the ovens. i wonder if you'd ever really use every burner and oven at once. what are you doing about the floor under the range and the wall behind? could you live with four burners? anyway, i think yours is a question for a plumber familiar with your building
The 48 range I want has two 22,000 btu burners and three 15,000 btu burners, plus two ovens, one 30,000 and one 15,000. My architect says the standard gas load supported by the gas line in most buildings is 70,000 btus. And our super says for us it is 65,000. Maybe it is the standard 70,000 and he's just being conservative, I don't know. But whichever, does this mean the double oven with six burners is impractical and won't work well? Obviously you aren't going to cook very often using both ovens and all the burners on full blast. But if you're using both ovens (which will turn on and off as needed to maintain a given temp) and several burners at once, are you going to see the performance slip because you are up against the gas line's limit? Does this remder the oven I want impractical? Any of you have experience with this?
at my mom's house when we looked at pro style ranges we were told to run a dedicated supply line direct from the meter since she also has a gas dryer and i know the existing 1/2inch supply was waaay too small and we were told we'd need a 1 inch supply for the range, i think the inlet on the 48 inch ranges is 3/4inch. in the end she just got a regular range because of the cost of installing a proper exhaust and replacing her exterior siding around the hole and reinforcing the kitchen floor so that the new range wouldn't end up in the basement.
so anyway, i have no idea what the answer is
