Preventing Gas Leaks in Your Home

While natural gas provides so much of the energy we use in our homes, there is of course an unavoidable risk associated with the benefits. Due to this, gas leaks should be avoided and there are simple steps you can take to get you there.

Rest easy with these 3 tips from Angie’s List:

Check connections regularly: About every six months or so, check the connection fittings on your gas-fired appliances and heating equipment. If you don’t feel you have the right experience to do so, call a highly rated appliance service, heating and cooling company or plumber to perform these semi-annual checks .

Use only licensed professionals: Since plumbing gas lines requires training and experience that can only be provided by a licensed professional, it’s always recommended to hire a licensed plumber to perform any maintenance, repairs or upgrades to plumbing that acts as natural gas fuel lines.

Call 811 before you dig: If you plan to excavate any areas of your property for landscaping or other improvements, always be aware of where gas lines are located and avoid digging near gas lines. If you’re unsure of where the gas lines are located on your property, call the gas utility before beginning any excavation.

From installing new gas lines, to detecting and repairing leaks, our licensed plumbers are available 24-hours a day to make sure your gas pipe repairs will be completed safely so you can rest easy.
