How do you know if you have a gas leak?
One problem that using natural gas has had from the very beginning was that it has no odor. If people use it in their homes, how will they know that there is a gas leak?
This is why the gas company has added an unpleasant odor to the gas. To most people, this odor smells like rotten eggs. This is your first line of defense against a gas leak: detection from your own nose. If you smell rotten eggs, open a few windows, turn off your gas and give us a call. We will be to your home right away.
Another way to detect a gas leak is with a gas leak detector. Also known as carbon dioxide detectors, they can be easily placed in your home to monitor CO2 levels. An alarm will sound when the CO2 levels in your home reach dangerous levels. They can be installed throughout the house, and they are easily found at most home improvement stores.
A third way to detect a leak is to give us a call. Not only can we detect a leak, but we can also inspect your gas hookups and gas lines to your appliances to make sure they are in good condition.
When is it time to repair or replace your gas line?
Many gas leaks can be prevented by repairing or replacing gas lines and fixtures. There are a few ways to determine if a gas line needs repair.
- Corrosion on the pipeline. If you see any corrosion, the pipe needs to be replaced right away.
- High gas bill. Just like a hot water leak can lead to higher bills, so too can a gas leak. If your gas bill has gone up, and there has been no increase in gas usage, then you may need your gas line to be inspected.
- Pilot flames going out frequently. This may be due to the pilot light not getting enough gas because of a faulty line or fixture.
- You had an unlicensed person install a gas line. If this is the case, you need to have a licensed professional take a look at it. This is a common reason for leaks, as someone without the proper credentials may have committed an error.
Whatever your gas leak or repair concerns are, we are there for you. Whether you have an emergency, want to schedule a service call, or simply have a question, do not hesitate to give us a call.
