GAS LINE REPAIR & INSTALLATION
Natural gas is one of the most common and affordable forms of energy for residential consumers. If your home has one gas-fired appliance, you can add as many as you like. The only thing that you need is a gas line to each one of the new gas appliances in your home. Permits and inspections on the gas line are often required. When it comes to gas line repair or installation, they both require a professional service, licensed technicians and the right permits. Gas line leaks can be very dangerous and they should be treated carefully. If you think there is a gas leak in your house, call IGD Plumbing to make an appointment.
Gas Line Leaks
So many homes in the United States rely on natural gas for clean and efficient heating. That is why a leaking gas line can cause a lot of problems. A buildup of natural gas in an enclosed area can make people very sick or in some cases even cause an explosion.
If you notice a “rotten egg” smell in your home, you might have a gas line leak. Here’s what you should do:
- Shut off any gas valves at your home.
- Do not use your cell phone until safely away from the suspected source of the leak.
- Do not turn any electric appliances on or off.
- Do not smoke or use any open flames.
- Do not attempt to locate the leak.
- Get a safe distance away from the house, and call the utility company to turn the gas to your home off.
- If a natural gas line is damaged when digging outside, call the utility company immediately.
- Do not attempt to repair the line by yourself.
Gas Line Repair
When doing a gas line repair, it’s very important that everything is in perfect working condition for both efficiency and safety reasons. Although using natural gas as source of energy is relatively safe, the consumers should be aware of possible hazards it’s carrying. The best way of doing that is by relying on a professional to do it for you.
