We all know that gas leaks are a serious issue that can lead to severe illness and a fire hazard. It’s so important that gas leaks are detected early so that you and your family members are safe. And it is equally essential to take the proper measures to stop a leak from happening in the first place.
Only Allow Professionals to Work on Your Gas Line
When it comes to your gas line, you should only allow a certified professional to provide any necessary work. Whether it’s a routine inspection or you need to install a new gas line, contact a professional gas fitter for service. You may be surprised to learn that you can often find someone with the proper certifications at your local plumbing company, and that they are more than willing to come out for a routine inspection.
Schedule Heating Maintenance Before the Season Starts
Heating maintenance is an HVAC service that includes an inspection of your heating system as well as a tune-up and cleaning of some of the major parts. This can reduce your monthly bills and it can make your heating system run a lot more smoothly. Additionally, a professional should check the igniter and ensure that everything is operating safely.
Know the Signs
Finally, it’s important that you know the signs of a gas leak, so that you can leave the home and call a professional ASAP.
- An odor often described as having the smell of rotten eggs.
- A hissing noise from your gas appliances.
- An orange or yellow flame from household appliances—it should be blue.
