How to Tell If You Need Gas Line Repair
The first sign of a gas line leak, unlike other problems occurring in the home, leave no doubt what is happening. The natural gas or propane that helps to power your home is odorless, but suppliers add the unmistakable odor of rotten eggs as an easy way to alert homeowners to trouble. If you smell that dreadful sulfur smell, akin to rotten eggs but more pungent, inside your home, it’s time for everyone to leave and call in professionals for help. A broken line may also produce a hissing sound as the gas escapes through a small hole. That is also a sign to leave the house.
Never Attempt DIY Repair
In the world of DIY household repair, gas lines are at the top of the list for areas to avoid. No matter how skilled you are at home improvements, only professionals trained to prevent the risk of fire or explosion should handle gas lines. Along with making a swift exit, don’t flick on or off any light switches. Don’t use lighters or matches. Be careful walking on carpets and don’t use your mobile phone.
The Importance of Expert Gas Leak Detection
Having leaks in your gas line doesn’t automatically pinpoint the exact location the repairs need to be made. At this point, you require our efficient, professional gas leak detection to find the location of the leak quickly. Only then can we repair it safely, and your family can get back into their home.
New Gas Line Installation
There are all kinds of reasons why homeowners, especially those already served by natural gas, may want the installation of additional gas lines. Gas-fired hot water is less expensive than electric. Most who have it would also call it more luxurious. The best cooks tend to prefer gas stoves and ovens. Local weather doesn’t require the heat very often, but if you moved here from the Northeast, you may remember how quickly a gas furnace knocked off the chill. If you are upgrading your water heater, stove or heating system, you’ll want professionally installed gas lines to connect the gas to those improvements.
Even in those local communities not served by natural gas, many homeowners have been able to adopt it. You may have noticed large propane tanks, typically about 50 gallons, that heat the hot water and even power the stoves and ovens in a great many local homes otherwise unconnected to natural gas.
