When to Call for Gas Line Repair
While you can take the reactive approach and wait to call us for gas line repair until after you have a leak, we recommend a proactive approach. Scheduling annual gas line inspections will help you avoid dangerous gas leaks and keep your gas bills low. However, you can also watch out for:
- Hissing sounds near the line
- Dead or dying vegetation around the line
- A rotten egg-like smell
- Problems with gas appliances
- Rising gas bills
- Visual corrosion or damage on the line in above-ground portions
Note that all the above are also signs of a gas leak and shouldn't be ignored. Even if you're not sure if you need repairs, you can still contact us for gas line leak detection services.
Should You Consider a Gas Pipe Replacement?
Most gas lines are built using black steel and have a lifespan of 50 years or more, so you likely don't need replacement unless you start to see problems with your line. When you call us for repairs, our experts will evaluate your line with a comprehensive inspection. We'll always be honest with you about whether repairs or replacement will be the safer option.
If you recently bought your home and don’t know how old the pipes are, you can assume that they were installed when the house was built, though it is possible to convert a home to natural gas. We can also use the condition of above-ground pipe sections to help estimate the condition and age of the entire line.
Are your water and sewer lines as old as your natural gas pipes? If your plumbing is more than 30 years old, it may be time for whole-home re-piping.
