What Should You Do If You Suspect a Gas Leak?
If you suspect a gas leak, leave your property immediately and call our technicians at American Mechanical to resolve the issue. A gas leak can result in an increased chance of fire or explosion, as well as carbon monoxide poisoning. These problems can even go undetected for a while because carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless.
What Causes Gas Leaks?
There are several factors that can cause a gas leak. Some reasons include poorly fitted or faulty gas appliances. Poor appliance maintenance can also lead to damaged gas lines that create leaks. If an appliance, such as a boiler or stove, is badly fitted, that can allow gas to escape from around the seal or from the gas hose that connects to the appliance. As appliances get older, the seals that connect the gas piping can corrode, causing a leak. Laundry machines, stoves, and other appliances that run off your gas line can become faulty and fail to ignite the gas. The gas can then escape into the home if the gas knob is not turned off.
How Can You Avoid Gas Leaks?
Maintenance is key to preventing unexpected problems in your gas line. Our licensed technicians will inspect, diagnose, and repair any problem you may be experiencing along your line. A minor issue can set the system off and result in costly repairs or even property damage.
