Common Causes of Gas Leaks and Problems

People often associate gas leaks with corroded, leaking pipe. While this is one scenario, and an extremely dangerous one, gas may also leak from a loosely connected or poorly fitted appliance. If the fittings of your stove, furnace, or gas dryer aren’t tight, you may have a dangerous gas leak. Wear and tear can affect the fittings as well. Unless the problem is fixed, gas can spread to every room of your home and present a danger to everyone inside.

How Do I Know If There Is a Gas Leak?

The most classic sign of a gas leak is a rotten egg odor, but this isn’t from the gas itself. Natural gas has no odor but suppliers add a chemical to make it detectable. Aside from this sulfur smell, other reasons to suspect a gas leak include:

  • Physical Symptoms: If you suddenly feel lightheaded, dizzy, nauseous, weak, have a headache, or have difficulty breathing at home, leave immediately and call a gas leak plumber near you.
  • Skin Irritation: Discoloration, blisters, or numbness may not be due to an allergy or skin condition. It may be caused by exposure to natural gas or carbon monoxide.

  • Pilot Light Problems: If the pilot light is out, doesn’t stay lit, or goes off repeatedly, there may be a gas problem. The flame should be blue; if it is orange or yellow, there may be a gas leak or ventilation issue.
  • Dead Plants: : A gas leak can deplete oxygen, leading to unhealthy or dead houseplants. If a gas pipe underground is leaking, you may notice dead grass and bushes outside your home (especially if grass is yellow).
  • Gas Line Abnormalities: There may sooty deposits near appliances or scorching near your furnace. Other signs include hissing/whistling sounds or white clouds or dust near the gas line.

If there are signs of a gas leak, get all people and pets outside ASAP. Turn off the gas line and stove if possible, and it seems safe enough to do so. Opening doors and windows helps vent the gas. But your priority should be to call 911, once you’re outside. The longer you stay indoors, the more you are at risk; plus, making calls, even on your cellphone, can ignite the gas and cause an explosion.

Professional Gas Leak Detection Services

A gas leak plumbing professional employs expertise, tools, and techniques to locate the source of the gas leak and determine how to fix it.

In addition to prompt, effective repairs, we also perform a pressure test to ensure any leak has been corrected and no further problems remain. You can therefore trust our plumbers to restore gas service and the safety of your home and family.
