How Can I Detect a Gas Leak?
There are several different areas of your home or office that can present a gas leak. So it’s important that you never assume that based on the location in which you detect a leak if it’s a leak or not. For example, while you may have a gas line only hooked up to your dryer, you may smell gas coming from the wall in another room. In this case, the gas line itself could be leaking apart from the dryer.
So when detecting a gas leak, there are the preliminary warning signs that might indicate a leak, such as a smell. In this case, you should call us immediately. From there, we can use advanced tools to detect whether or not there is a leak for certain. In many cases, when you’re installing an appliance such as a dryer, it will come with a special chemical that’s designed to detect a gas leak. When you’re looking for a flexible gas line installation homeowners have started to use more frequently, we may use this same procedure. It can quickly detect a gas leak by bubbling at the head of the pipe where there may not be a sufficient seal. We may also use advanced detection equipment that will help us find the leak quickly so that it can be properly patched up.
