Worried You May Have a Gas Leak? Do Not Wait to Call for Service!
Gas lines are important in homes as they help provide power to many appliances. However, these gas lines also have elements that can be dangerous when they are not handled 100% correctly. As time goes on, gas lines can become corroded, which can result in cracks, tears, and breaks. If you have reason to suspect this has happened to your gas line system, it is essential to contact Dedicated Plumbing at (909) 969-1909 right away as you could potentially be in danger.
Common Signs of Gas Leaks in the Home
One of the biggest issues with gas leaks is that they are not always easy to detect. This is why you must know the common symptoms so that you can call us as soon as you suspect there could be a leak. If you have a higher gas bill than usual, you feel dizzy or have a headache, your pilot light is constantly blowing out, or you see that the gas flame is blue instead of orange or yellow – or some combination of these signs – then you need to contact us as soon as possible.
No, You Cannot Always Smell Gas Leaks
It is a huge and dangerous misconception about gas leaks that they can always be smelled. This is false. In fact, there is often no order at all. All too often, the first sign anyone notices is a fire, explosion, or ill health affects from the leaking gas. As you can see, this is truly a situation to take seriously and get professional help on right away.
