What are Signs That You May Have a Gas Leak?

Gas lines supply your Arizona home with heat and power gas appliances. Gas appliances are a popular choice, saving consumers over 30% on energy costs over electricity. Be alert for some of the signs that you may have a gas leak:

  • Physical indicators - The first sign of a gas leak is often the smell of rotten eggs or sulfur. You may also hear a hissing sound when you are close to a gas line. Finally, breathing natural gas can cause dizziness, headache, nausea, or fatigue. Call Day & Night Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing immediately if you notice any of these indicators of the presence of gas in your home or office! 
  • Dying plants - Gas lines run under your lawn and near the perimeter of your home. If you notice patches of dead grass or dying plants near your gas line or meter, the cause may be a gas leak. 
  • Malfunctioning appliances - If you have a gas leak, it is very likely that your gas appliances will give you some hints that something is wrong. Is the gas flame on your stovetop weak, flickering, sputtering, or does it refuse to light? Is your water heater not heating the water as hot as usual? You may have an issue with your gas lines. 
  • Soaring gas bills - If your gas bills increase each month or have spiked drastically, it could be due to gas escaping from lines or fittings.
  • Blowing dust - A gas leak in a line near loose dirt can create little dust storms over the exit site.
  • Carbon monoxide alerts - If your carbon monoxide detector goes off, you may have a natural gas leak or a buildup of carbon monoxide. Leave the premises immediately and call our team to detect and repair your leak.  

What Are Some Causes of Gas Leaks?

There are many possible causes of gas leaks. Our highly experienced team is trained in the latest techniques and tools to detect, repair, or replace faulty gas lines or fittings. Some potential sources of leaks include: 

  • Worn or corroded seals on appliances cause gas to escape into the home

  • Poor ventilation can cause a buildup of carbon monoxide
  • Poorly maintained or secured fittings on boilers, cookers, or meters
