Call Staggs Plumbing immediately if you notice any of these signs of a gas leak:
- Dead grass or vegetation – Even though you can’t see underground gas lines, a rough patch of dead vegetation may be a sign that you have a leaking gas pipe underneath.
- Mist or fog – If there is an unusual cloud of white mist or fog surrounding your property, it could be an indication of a ruptured gas line, and you should contact your gas company immediately.
- Hissing or unusual sounds – Hissing sounds near your gas line typically means you have a substantial leak. If you hear a hissing sound by your AC, it could be a leak in your valve, refrigerant line, or a bad compressor. Turn off the system and contact a professional to check it out, since strange sounds coming from your HVAC system are usually warnings.
- Rotten-egg odor – Utility companies use a chemical called mercaptan that gives odorless and colorless gases a scent similar to sewage, sulfur, or rotten eggs. You might have a gas leak if you notice a rotten egg smell in your home.
Gas pipes are generally safe. However, it can produce severe safety hazards if any gas leaks from the gas supply lines. If a gas leak isn’t discovered and fixed, the consequences can include fires, indoor oxygen deprivation, and the release of carbon monoxide byproducts. Therefore, to maintain the safety of your home, it is essential that you schedule routine maintenance to assure optimal performance.
