Natural gas and propane are some of the most efficient energy sources available. They provide cost effective solutions to heat your home during the winter, and provide hot water for showers. Other appliances such as stoves, fireplaces, and clothes dryers can also use propane or natural gas. Many homes also have space heaters and gas logs as a backup source of heat if power is lost from storms or snow. Gas pool heaters and generators are a great addition to any home that may want the assurance of continued power through storms or may want to extend their swimming season.
Signs of a Gas Leak
Gas lines are very safe and efficient, and the chances of leaks are usually very minimal. Even though gas lines are safe, you should be aware of the odors of natural gas and propane. Natural gas has a substance injected into it called mercaptan that is designed to smell like rotten eggs. Propane smells a little different and is often described as smelling like “skunk spray”. If you smell either one of these smells call your gas provider immediately. Other signs of a gas leak can include a high gas bill, or the presence of hissing or blowing sounds. However, most gas leaks are small and no sounds may be detected.
Can I Repair my own Gas Line?
We do not recommend repairing your gas line yourself. There are many protocols involved in detecting, isolating, and repairing gas leaks. There are often special tools used to narrow down and locate gas leaks. Special training on these tools and repair methods have been learned through state required continuing education, and a plumbing/HVAC license is required. If you need a gas line repaired in your home or business, you may have the thought that you want to save a few dollars and do it yourself. Keep in mind that there are strict regulations that prohibit DIY gas line repairs, and even if there aren’t it is extremely dangerous and should only be performed by licensed gas line professionals.
A situation like a gas line leak needs fast action, and putting off repairs is not recommended. First call your local gas provider to make the situation safe, then give us a call at 770-744-0210 in Cartersville, GA and the surrounding areas for a safe solution to your gas line issue.
