What Are the Signs of a Gas Leak?
Most of the time when you think of a gas leak, you’ll probably think of a rotten egg or sulfur smell. While this is a telling sign, there are a few others you should be on the lookout for:
- Hissing noises from your pipes
- Air bubbles in puddles outside
- Dead plants
- An increase in your gas bill
- Constantly feeling unwell because of headaches, fatigue, and shortness of breath
If you begin to notice any of these signs, you should leave the property immediately and call our gas line contractors. A gas leak is NOTHING to fool around with. It can start fatal fires and be deadly in its own right. Gas pipe leak detection should be done so the problem can be fixed promptly.
Are There Ways to Prevent Gas Pipe Leaks?
Of course, there is no measure that will be 100% effective in preventing a gas leak at home, and sometimes they are entirely out of your control, but there are a few tricks to limit the possibility of a leak in your home.
When buying new appliances don’t look up how to install them yourself. If you happen to be a professional installer, go right ahead, but for most, that scenario is unlikely, and you might miss something along the way in the installation process. Instead, call a certified installer to do the job and give yourself peace of mind. Always make sure your appliances are well-maintained and watch for damage due to wear and tear.
The best way to help mitigate the risk of gas leaks is with regular gas line maintenance. At PAC Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, we offer membership plans to help protect your home at all times. This can include gas line inspections, to help catch small repair issues early.
