Why You Might Need Gas Line Services
A sizeable chunk of home appliances need natural gas to operate. If you want a gas furnace, the most popular heating system type in the country, you’re going to need access to a natural gas line. Stoves and ovens are also very common consumers of natural gas. Most homes with fireplaces have a natural gas component, as well; it’s considered cleaner and more convenient than burning wood. Considering how many different home systems use natural gas, it makes sense to want a gas line installed in your home. Let us handle your gas line installation for you. We’ll make sure that everything goes safely and correctly.
Gas Line Problems You Need to Be Aware of
Natural gas has the potential to be quite dangerous, under certain circumstances. While the vast majority of homes never have a serious problem with their natural gas line, it is important that you be able to recognize the signs of a problem in case it does happen. Take a look at some of the symptoms that you need to call for gas line repair:
- Sulfurous Smells: The smell of sulfur, also referred to as "rotten egg" smell, is a sure sign that you have a gas leak. While natural gas is normally odorless, cities mix it with odorous gases in order to warn homeowners when a leak occurs. If you smell this, turn off your gas and get out of the house immediately. Then, call emergency services for gas line repairs.
- Lightheadedness/Vomiting/Hallucinations/Loss of Consciousness: All of these are symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, which is a byproduct of burning natural gas. Carbon monoxide is normally safely vented and dispersed out of the house by natural gas–burning systems, but in rare cases it could leak into the home. If you notice any of these symptoms in yourself or others in the home, get out of the house and call emergency services.
