Ask a Controls Expert with Stromquist’s own David Cates who answers an inquiry on a combination gas valve. A combination gas valve is used to control gas pressure and provide safety features. Controlling the pressure is required to avoid fires and explosions caused by too much pressure. If the pressure is not high enough, though, the appliance will not get the amount of ignited gas required for it to function properly.
