As gas leaks are dangerous, they always need a professional. What are some signs that you have a gas leak?
Developing physical symptoms – headaches, dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness. If you experience any of these symptoms, leave your home to get away from the noxious fumes and then call a professional.
Malfunction – if you notice your gas appliances stop working at the same time, you may have a gas leak. You should call a professional right away.
Higher than normal gas bill – if your gas bill is higher than normal, there is a chance you have a leak and you should have it checked out.
Dead or dried out plants – Plants are indicators, they are sensitive and if they are drying out or dying, it is possible you have a gas leak.
Gas leaks are dangerous and can cause many issues including health. Causes of a gas leak can be from appliances, faulty pipes and poor ventilation. If you smell gas, evacuate your home including pets, open windows and doors and call us. You should have the gas company cut off the gas and have the lines inspected. You want to make sure you know here the gas could come from so that you can check it on a regular basis. Over time, as with anything, your gas pipes can break down.
