Common Indications of a Gas Leak
When a gas leak is present, it’s not always obvious and it is never visible. Natural gas is odorless and colorless, making it difficult to know right away when a gas leak has started. Luckily, there are a few common indications that will alert you when something isn’t right with your gas line. These indicators include:
- GAS-POWERED APPLIANCES NOT WORKING: Whether you have a gas stove or a gas-powered fireplace, it’s important to take notice of when they aren’t working properly. If you switch in your stove and nothing happens, this could indicate that something is wrong with your home’s gas line.
- PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS: As you know, gas leaks can be extremely hazardous to our healths. When our bodies are exposed to toxicity, there’s a good chance you will experience a physical reaction. These reactions can range from nausea and lightheadedness to dizziness and shortness of breath, or all of the above. If your body feels off randomly sitting in your home, vacate your home immediately.
- INCREASED GAS BILL: When a gas leak is present, you can expect to experience a sudden increase in your home’s gas bill. This is because gas is leaking even when you are not using gas-powered appliances.
- HOUSEPLANTS DYING: When gas reaches toxic levels within our homes, our houseplants can be negatively affected. You may notice that despite being watered properly or fed enough sunlight, your plants keep falling limp or dying.
- ODD SMELLS: Gas leaks can go undetected mainly because gas has no distinct smell. For this reason, technicians inject mercaptan in the gas which will emit a sulfur or rotten egg-like smell when exposed to oxygen.
