How to Tell if You Have a Gas Leak

January 1, 2016 | Blog

Natural gas is certainly one of the most popular of all fuels used in homes today. It is relatively clean-burning, for a fossil fuel, and it is piped directly onto your property. That means that you won’t ever have to worry about having natural gas delivered, nor do you run the risk of running out of natural gas. However, you must also keep in mind that natural gas is extremely combustible. When your gas line is professionally installed by a qualified party, it should operate just fine. If you do develop a gas leak, though, it is vital that the problem is resolved immediately. Here are a few warning signs that you may have a gas leak on your property.

A Sulfuric Odor

If you’ve ever smelled natural gas, you’ll know that its odor is very distinct and instantly recognizable: it smells like rotten eggs. In fact, though, natural gas is odorless by nature. This rotten egg smell is actually added to natural gas, so as to ensure that homeowners are able to detect a leak quickly.

Dead Vegetation

Have you noticed patches of dead grass or dying shrubbery on your property? Is this dying vegetation in the proximity of your gas line in Fresno, CA? If so, you could have a gas leak that is causing this vegetation to be poisoned. The leak must be detected and repaired promptly.

Blowing Dirt

When you look out the window, can you see dirt blowing up in the air from your property? This too could indicate that you have a gas leak, and that natural gas is causing the phenomenon. Don’t tell yourself that it is just the wind. Hire a professional to evaluate the situation immediately.
