There is perhaps no more terrifying home maintenance issue than a ruptured or leaking gas line. Natural gas, also known as methane, is an insidious toxin. Even with its artificial odor, natural gas can build up largely unnoticed until it presents serious health and safety risks.
If you suspect you might have a gas leak, get yourself and anyone else in the house to a safe location before calling the utility company and a professional gas pipe repair technician for emergency service. Stay away until told it’s fae to return.
The pipe replacement professionals from In A Snap Plumbing understand the urgency of your circumstances. We will rush an expert technician to your home with replacement tools and the diagnostic equipment we need for gas line repair in Van Nuys, CA. We strive to fix your gas lines quickly, professionally, and safely.
Signs That You Might Have a Gas Leak
Gas leaks can be easy to miss, especially if a respiratory illness has reduced your ability to smell. Keep an eye and ear out for other gas leak indicators so you can get help.
Natural Gas does not have an odor by itself. Utility companies add the chemical mercaptan to the pipes so that people can more easily detect its sulfurous odor, a smell like rotten eggs.
If you smell gas, go on high alert. Unless there are actually rotten eggs or similar unappealing food items in your home, contact a professional to report a potential gas leak.
If you’ve been in your home or had tenants for many years, you probably have a general idea of how much gas your property uses monthly and yearly. If your utility bills are much higher than usual, particularly your natural gas usage, ask whether your family or tenants are using gas appliances more than usual. If not, the extra gas you’re be paying for might be leaking into your home.
Natural gas is harmful to plants, animals, and humans. If you suffer any physical symptoms, including:
- Problems remembering and concentrating
- Difficulty Breathing
As gas intoxication becomes more severe, a person or animal might lose consciousness and be unable to escape once symptoms become apparent. This is why you should call a qualified repair technician as soon as you detect a gas leak and find a safe place to wait until the expert fixes the problem.
An appliance with leaking gas hookups might produce a hissing sound as the gas escapes from the faulty pipe. A telltale sign that the gas is leaking is when the hissing sound persists even once you’ve turned the appliance off.
Gas leaks can occur at many points in your home, and the gas can quickly spread. Natural gas is lighter than air, so it can rise from a basement dryer hookup or water heater to invade the rest of the house. One of the first things a gas professional will do is measure the concentration of natural gas at different points in your home to identify the leak.
