Having a defective Gas Line can lead to some serious issues. When you have a gas leak it can affect your home’s environment and put your family’s health and safety at risk. Gas line issues can also impact your appliances that use natural gas as its energy source. Whether it’s a fireplace, stove, water heater or another appliance, making sure your gas line is well maintained can help keep your appliances and equipment working efficiently, smoothly and safely.
There are generally four signs you can look for when you are unsure about whether or not you have a leak. Being aware and alert of gas line leaks can be the difference between life and death. This is why you have to treat gas leaks with caution and extreme urgency.
Using your senses to determine whether you have a leak is the first step to identifying a gas line leak. If you can hear, smell, and even feel. When your gas line is leaking you may experience dizziness, fatigue, and nausea. Because gas also has a foul smell, often associated to rotten eggs, this is usually the first indicator when identifying a gas line leak. If you happen to hear the sound of hissing or clanging near a gas line, that is also could be a sign that your gas line needs repair.
Another way to determine when you have a gas line leak is to check your surroundings. One of the most obvious things people notice when there’s a gas leak is dead or dying vegetation near the gas line area. Since plants are easily damaged when exposed to leaking gas, this is another way to identify a gas line leak.
Checking your Appliances is also another good indication when your gas line is leaking. If the appliance that you are using begins making unusual noises or are not working efficiently is another indication of a possible gas line leak. If there is a damaged connection, you may even see parts of your gas line becoming visible. In any event, if you are having these types of experiences, call us right away.
The last sign of a Gas Line Leak is if your home has been predisposed or has a documented history of gas leaks in the past. If you notice your gas bill has a unexplained increase, then there may be a leak somewhere in your home.
