Gas Leak Detection Protects Your Health
Did you know the rotten-egg smell from natural gas is actually an additive? Gas is so deadly, and normally has no smell, so the scent is added to protect you when a leak occurs. Long term exposure can lead to health risks like:
- Respiratory Problems
- Stomach Illness
- Blurred Vision
- Chest pain
- Lack of muscle control
Don’t ignore a gas leak. Accurate detection and fast repair are the best way to protect yourself!
Why Do I Have a Gas Leak?
Because gas lines are mostly hidden in the walls, they aren’t always a priority. Being aware of the common causes can help you prevent a leak or detect it early on:
- Faulty Installation: Leads to poor and unreliable performance. Correct installation right at the get-go will prevent most gas line problems.
- Age: Can take its toll on your system. If you live in an older home, check your pipes frequently for corrosion, damage or cracks.
- Defective Appliances: Can have connector or ignition issues. Old water heaters, unreliable ovens, and malfunctioning heating systems can be dangerous. Look for worn out parts and be aware of poor performance.

- Nausea, vomiting or sluggishness
- Dying house plants
- Higher-than-normal gas expenses
- Yellow or orange gas flames (instead of blue)
- Hissing sounds near gas pipes
