5 Signs You May Need Gas Pipe Repair
If you smell sulfur or a rotten egg odor in the house, it could mean you have a natural gas leak and must vacate the house immediately to call for help.
However, there are other signs you need to repair your gas line, and here are the top five.
Do you know how old the gas lines are in the house? You’d be surprised, but many homes have gas lines that are more than 50 years old. These outdated gas lines are more likely to develop cracks as they age, which can cause leaks.
To understand what shape your gas lines are in, call a professional gas pipe repair specialist for an inspection.
As we’ve seen, a tiny amount of gas can seep out of cracks in the gas line, but the problem is that these cracks are often difficult to detect.
However, the escaping gas often makes a hissing sound as it’s escaping and can alert you to leaks.
Water shouldn’t get into your gas line, but it will cause the metal pipes to rust if it happens.
At first, rust is barely noticeable and won’t seem like something to be concerned about. However, it will worsen gradually and cause enough damage that you’ll have to replace the line.
If you see that your gas lines are rusting, call for gas pipe replacement as soon as possible.
You probably have many household appliances that run on gas, such as your stove, water heater, and furnace.
Leaks in the gas line can cause these appliances to malfunction or slow down.
If you have a green thumb and suddenly notice that your household plants are wilting, you may not think it’s a gas leak that’s to blame, but it could be.
