Common Causes of Gas Leaks
Natural gas and/or liquid propane is used in homes and business in Austin, Texas as a reliable source of energy. It is commonly used to fuel water heaters, general heating, and home appliances like stove tops and drying machines. Natural gas is an environmentally-friendly fuel alternative that is affordable and burns cleaner than fossil fuels. However, gas leaks can be dangerous for homes and businesses. There are six common causes of residential gas leaks.
- Poor or degraded fitting/connections between gas line and an appliance
- Lack of proper appliance maintenance
- Appliance malfunctions
- Gas pipes rusting from ground moisture
- Movement of old piping disrupting old sealant
- Increased home gas needs that are unsupported by old equipment
Signs of a Gas Plumbing Repair Needed
Does your home smell like a rotten egg? Typically, this is the surest sign that there is a gas plumbing issue within your home. If you are smelling a strong egg-like smell that you can not pinpoint, do not hesitate to call Honest Plumbing & Air.
Other common signs include hissing noises coming from your gas appliance and an unexpected spike in your gas bill with no explanation. If you start feeling subtle health signs of something wrong such as irritated eyes and throat, headaches, nausea, dizziness, coughing, or fatigue, you may have exposure to a gas leak. Your family pets may start acting strangely.
Animals might experience health issues more immediately due to their smaller size. If you have houseplants near a gas line and notice them dying even though they are being properly cared for, the problem might be a gas leak. All these signs could be due to a leak in your gas line. Appliances that use gas, like your oven and water heater, may have corrosion at the connection.
These are all signs that should not be ignored.
Safe & Effective Gas Line Installation
Damaged or cracked gas lines can be extremely dangerous to your home and your family. Natural gas is naturally odorless substance, but Mercaptan is added (also to propane) to make it detectable by smell, so it is critical to check for leaks or damage routinely.
While there is no set time frame for any homeowner or business to properly maintain their gas line and plumbing, it is ideal to get them checked annually by a professional plumber. If they are not inspected periodically, problems with gas lines can lead to serious plumbing issues. Solving the issues early will save you money and the headache of having to deal with it later on when it is potentially worse.
If a repair is not possible, it may be time for a gas line replacement. Honest Plumbing & Air provides gas line installation in Austin, Texas, in addition to many of our other services. Our licensed and insured professionals at Honest Air can ensure that you are making the best choices for your family or business when it comes to plumbing problems.
