Our Gas Line Repair And Installation Services
Gas has been described by some consumers as “affordable” and “environmental-friendly.” While this may be true, gas can be very dangerous when it springs a leak. Gas leaks require immediate attention from a qualified expert.
New York is known for its moderate winters and frigid temperatures. To combat the cold, thousands of New Yorkers rely on gas to keep their homes warm, snug, and comfortable. It is crucial to have your gas appliances inspected annually. Avoiding regular maintenance will only lead to malfunctions and leaks.
Know The Signs Of A Gas Leak
As mentioned previously, gas leaks are very dangerous. Fortunately, they are not very difficult to detect. There are a few notable signs that point to a gas leak. These are listed below to help jump start your effort.
- Rotten Egg Odor – This is the most notable sign of a gas leak. It has been described as a “rotten egg” odor that can range from mild to severe. When detecting the first sign of a potential leak, we recommend shutting down your gas heater immediately.
- Shortness of Breath – Gas leaks are not always detectable through the rotten egg odor. In fact, some people have reported shortness of breath with no odor. If you are feeling short of breath for no apparent reason, it could very well be a gas leak.
- Unusual Headaches – Gas leaks can cause headaches and dizziness. If you or one of your family members present with an unusual headache, we recommend an inspection of your gas supply lines.
- Nausea – Nausea is another sign of a gas leak. Not everyone has reported feeling nauseous during a gas leak. But, it is a highly potential sign of a leak.
- Dead Grass Spots – Your gas supply lines are buried in the ground. They run from the meter to each gas-powered appliance inside your home. If you detect dead grass spots around or near where the supply lines are located, they could be linked to a gas leak. Monitor the area for a few days to see if it continues to expand outwards. Do not wait too long because gas leaks pose danger for animals, plants, and humans.
- Soil Erosion – A sign that many people ignore is soil erosion. Rarely do homeowners take a walk around their yard to inspect their gas supply lines. This is truly a shame because gas leaks can cause soil erosion.
Other symptoms linked to a gas leak include fatigue, sleepiness, throat irritation, nosebleeds, and mood changes.
What To Do When A Gas Leak Is Detected In Your Home
We cannot stress enough the importance of quick action for gas leaks. We recommend you contact our local New York office where you will be connected to one of your residential gas experts. Do not delay action because something as simple as a spark could lead to a major explosion.
No Hot Water – The Problem May Not Be The Water Heater
Many people automatically assume no hot water is the result of a malfunctioning water heater. While this may be the case sometimes, the problem could also be a leak in the gas supply lines. No hot water may be something as simple as a damaged heating element or something as severe as a gas leak.
