How Do I Know If I Have a Gas Leak?
If you have a gas leak, you will want to look out for two signs: the smell of rotten eggs, and a hissing sound from a gas appliance. Gas is naturally colorless and odorless; however, there is a chemical called mercaptan (which smells like rotten eggs) that is included in your gas line to warn you of any leaks.
You are also not likely to hear gas leaks when they occur, but there are instances when you will hear a hissing sound from your appliance. If you encounter any of these warning signs, leave your home immediately and call for help.
What Causes Gas Leaks?
Gas leaks are caused by varying factors. Your gas line may be damaged, or a gas-powered appliance may not have been connected properly, leaving an opening for gas to leak out. No matter the source of the problem, you will need to have your gas line repaired as quickly as possible.
What About Gas Shut Off Valves?
Your home should have a gas shut off valve. In the event of an earthquake, you need to turn this valve off. This way, you won’t have to worry about possible damage to the gas line. A major earthquake will increase the risk of gas leaks.
Do You Also Install Gas Appliances?
Yes! New appliance connections involving your gas line will require an experienced and licensed technician to perform the service. If you are looking to install a new gas water heater, gas stove, or an outdoor gas line, make sure to connect with our reliable technicians for professional installations. We will make sure that all parts of your system are properly connected, helping you avoid premature problems and leaks.
