Installing Your New Gas Line
Have you had your eye on a new gas range, dryer, or a barbecue? The convenience and energy efficiency of a new gas appliance is unbeatable. Most chefs agree that cooking on a gas range offers the best control and flexibility of temperature.
Additionally, switching to a natural gas barbecue means you’ll never run out of propane or need to get your tank refilled in the middle of a backyard cookout. Hiring a professional licensed plumber ensures your new gas line is properly sized and up to current code standards.
How Do Gas Leaks Cause Damage?
The reason gas leaks are so dangerous is because they can cause damage in two very different ways.
Over time, the buildup of leaked gas can cause a large explosion in the presence of even the smallest bit of flame or spark. Another form of damage is carbon monoxide poisoning. Because natural gas is odorless and invisible, it can build up in high amounts without notice.
Signs you’ve been affected by a gas leak include dizziness, headaches, and feelings of sluggishness.
What Do You Do During a Gas Leak?
If you suspect you have a gas leak, leave your property immediately. You should not try to call for help in your Arizona home or business, as this could set off an explosion.
When you are in a safe location, call your gas supply company to report the leak, and contact your Cal’s Plumbing emergency service plumber to schedule a leak detection. We will be happy to come out and fix the leak as soon as we can get to your Tucson home or business.
Gas leaks can be very dangerous and even deadly. Attempting self-repair is unwise as it would put your safety at risk. You should always contact a skilled and licensed professional who is best equipped to make repairs.
