Practical Tips to Detect Gas Leaks

As an Adelaide gas fitter, at ABA Plumbing & Gas we have detected and repaired gas leaks in numerous homes and businesses. Gas leaks are one of the most dangerous and common threats to your well-being and your property – be it a home or a commercial establishment. Gas leaks can cause great deal of damage to your health and property such as fires, explosions, or carbon monoxide poisoning. Usually caused because of poorly maintained or faulty appliances, gas leaks can be detected early on by taking some precautions and proactive steps. If there are ageing or ill-fitted gas appliances on your property, it can cause gas to leak into your home. No matter how minor or small the leak is, it should never be ignored as it may have the potential to turn into a more hazardous situation.

Natural gas appliances are commonly found across Adelaide homes as so many homeowners enjoy the benefits and ease of gas appliances. However, are you well equipped and confident in detecting a leak in or around your property? In this blog, we are discussing some practical tips to pick up on any natural gas leak and the steps you must take for the safety of your family and property.

 When Do You Need To Inspect For Gas Leak Adelaide?

  • Higher Gas Bills: if you have seen a spike in your gas bills, chances are you could be having a gas leak. Even though it could be small and not dangerous to cause an explosion or fire, it is still costing you a lot of money.
  • Rotten Egg Smell: this is the most common sign to detect a gas leak but sometimes it isn’t obvious.
  • Health Signs: other red flags to look for are health and well-being symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, feeling lightheaded or nausea.
  • Appliance Performance: is your hot water system not working? Does the pilot light frequently burn out? Oven or cooktop not lighting? Can you hear a hissing or whistling noise coming from any of your gas appliances? There is a very high chance that your gas appliance is faulty causing a gas leak.

If you experience any of the above symptoms in your home, organise to immediately get a gas leak detection service from a trusted Adelaide gas plumber. All gas related issues must be addressed on priority and by a licensed professional to eliminate any personal and financial loss.

Safety Steps to Take When You Notice a Gas Leak

Now that you know the commonly found warning signs of a gas leak, it is imperative to follow the right steps. Here are some important steps to take to safeguard your home and well-being:

  1. Open all doors and windows to allow ventilation so the gas is not trapped inside your house.
  2. DO NOT turn on any electric appliances close to the leak.
  3. Most importantly, turn off the main gas supply and get outside or leave the property.
  4. Once your family is outside the house, call an emergency gas repair plumber to conduct a comprehensive check, skilfully detect the leak and repair it professionally to restore your peace of mind and safety.
