Gas leaks are one of the most dangerous situations you can find yourself in. Virtually any appliance that uses gas as a power source, such as stoves and furnaces, can potentially leak. The leaking can be caused by breaks in the gas line or couplings that are worn out. If you suspect a gas leak in your home or business property, leave the area immediately and contact leak detection experts to locate the damaged line and repair it. Our licensed technicians serve the Round Lake area and surrounding communities, including Barrington, Buffalo Grove, and Grayslake.
How to Tell If There’s a Gas Leak
The first indication of a gas leak is often a certain smell, a rotten egg odor. You can’t smell or see natural gas, but there is a chemical called mercaptan that is added to the gas supply that makes it easier to detect leaks. While you can sometimes “hear” a gas leak, this is usually only true of leaks caused by ruptures in major gas lines underground. Gas leaking from an appliance does not come out quickly enough to make a sound, which is why the distinctive odor of mercaptan has been added to make detection easier.
Another sign that you have a gas leak involves faulty equipment, or a pilot light that continuously goes out.
Repairing Your Gas Line
Our technicians use the latest in gas leak detection technology. If we confirm a gas leak in your property, we will shut off the gas line and determine the ideal method of repair. Repair techniques will depend on where the gas is leaking from, as well as the particular appliance in question. For example, if the gas line connected to your furnace is leaking, that line will need to be tightened, and your furnace system will need to be rechecked. If the gas leak is coming from your stove, couplings may be worn out and will require replacement.
After all leak detection and gas line repair services, we will conduct a thorough inspection of your systems and appliances to ensure complete protection for your home.
