A natural gas line is a great thing to have in your home. It can help you cook indoors or outdoors, heat the water for your shower, bathtub, or swimming pool, or power your furnace. Natural gas is safe, clean, and better for the environment than many other fuel sources.
However, natural gas lines are also deserving of respect. They are safe as long as they are installed, maintained, and inspected by a professional technician. Even if you are a skilled DIY handyman or have experience with home renovation projects, you should never try to service a gas line by yourself. Gas lines can be dangerous to work with, and any mistakes made while servicing them can have serious consequences. If improperly handled, they can leak and cause explosions or fires.
What are Some Signs of Gas Line Problems?
It is important to be proactive in monitoring your gas lines to ensure that they are functioning properly and safely. Check your gas lines regularly for any signs of corrosion or damage, as this can lead to dangerous leaks. If you notice any discoloration, it is important to take action and call our natural gas specialists immediately. Corrosion and damage can weaken the integrity of the pipes, making them more prone to leaks. Discoloration can be caused by a variety of factors, including exposure to extreme temperatures, chemical reactions, or even the presence of certain minerals in the water.
Sometimes a gas leak is caused by accidental damage to a gas hose. Especially for backyard gas lines, it is possible that somebody stepped on the gas hose or ran it over. If you suspect a gas leak, we can check the lines for damage or improper connections. Sometimes, the cause of a gas leak is as simple as the hose not being properly attached to the quick disconnect coupler.
Another possible sign of a gas leak is an increase in the levels of sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and other toxic gases in the air. These gases can cause a variety of health issues, such as headaches, nausea, and breathing problems. If you smell a strange odor, similar to rotten eggs, you might be smelling a compound that many natural gas companies put into their gas to help homeowners detect leaks. Even though natural gas emits fewer dangerous gases than other fuels, these gases can still build up in the presence of a leak or improper ventilation. We recommend the installation of a carbon monoxide detector, which is an important device that can save lives.
