What to Do if You Have a Gas Leak
The first step is to turn off the gas at the main. You can also cut the power, but if you opt not to do so, avoid turning on any lights as they can act as a source of combustion. After that, open the windows to help the gas dissipate, then evacuate the area. Make sure to take any pets with you.
Finally, contact our technicians. Our staff might provide further instructions depending on the situation at hand. Your safety is our top priority.

Common Gas Leak Warning Signs
If you have natural gas appliances, it's crucial to be able to recognize the warning signs of a leak. Here's what to watch out for:
- Unusual odors, particularly a rotten egg smell
- Window condensation
- Dead grass above the line
- Hissing sounds near the line or your appliances
- Rising gas bills
Gas appliance malfunctions can also lead to the release of carbon monoxide, which will not present with any of the issues above. We highly recommend installing a carbon monoxide alarm and having your gas line inspected annually.
Regular plumbing and HVAC maintenance can also help prevent gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. Call us today to keep your family safe.
