When would your gas line need repairs or replacement?
The signs that indicate whether your gas line needs repairs or replacement include:
- A lack of heat. If the gas line is blocked, less gas will be provided to create heat. If water and the home is cooler than normal, it is likely time to repair the gas line or possibly replace it.
- Age of your gas line. As gas lines age, they tend to thin out in certain areas. Thinning most often occurs at the line’s joints before other sections. Also, the gasket / seal areas where gas lines connect to appliances thin out more frequently than other parts of the line.
- A leak. If your gas line has a gas leak, it is time to repair or replace it. If you can catch the leak sooner rather than later, you’ll be able to prevent the leak from seriously damaging your home and the people inside of it.
- You see damage. If you take a look at your gas line and see rust, dents, bends, or other significant warping, you’ll likely need to repair or replace the gas line so that future problems don’t pop up.
- You smell gas. This is the most common sign of a gas leak. If you smell something that reminds you of rotting eggs, you likely have a gas leak. However, the smell gradually increases in potency so you might not recognize the smell at first until you exit and re-enter the home. Ask someone else who doesn’t live in the home to come in and take a sniff to see if he can smell a gas leak.
- You hear noises. If you hear a small hissing or whisper from your gas line, there is a strong chance that it has a leak.
- Dead plants around the home. If your home’s plants or landscaping has died, it might be a result of them being placed over a gas line that is leaking. Gas leaks kill plants fairly easily.
What should you do if you have a gas leak?
If your gas line is leaking, take the initiative to fix the problem right away. The first thing to do is exit the home and let your family know that the home’s gas line is leaking so they should avoid entering.
The next step is to contact the gas utility company so that they can cut off the gas from going into the home. The last step is to contact our professional services to repair the gas line.
Our experts will perform a thorough inspection of the gas lines, find the problem’s source and fix it.
