How to Tell You Have a Gas Leak
As a responsible homeowner, you know that your home is an investment for the health and well-being of your family. However, you may not know that 1 in 318 homes have a leak or potential gas leak. If you have an undetected leak, it not only puts your family at serious risk, it also costs you money.
To help you detect whether you have a leak, it’s important to be aware of the following signs:
- Dying plants along your gas line
- Hissing sounds from your gas appliances
- The smell of sulfur or rotten egg
- Air or plants blowing around the gas line
- Bubbles in the dirt surrounding your gas line
Common Causes of Gas Leaks
Another way to protect your family, or your commercial property, is to understand what can cause a gas leak, which will help you prevent their occurrence. Most often, construction can be blamed for gas leaks. Any time excavation is performed, it’s important to conduct surveys to locate the gas line and know how to best avoid it.
Another reason a gas leak can occur is old pipes. Older pipes are more fragile, which means they can corrode easier and develop leaks.
