3 Reasons to Schedule a Gas Leak Detection Appointment

HVAC Services

Completing a gas leak detection is not easy. Few homeowners are able to do this on their own, making it important to call in a professional such as ourselves. We complete these types of appointments on a regular basis and would be happy to visit your home or business to determine if you have a gas leak and the best way to solve the problem if you do.

Here are several reasons to schedule the appointment right away

1. A gas leak can be incredibly dangerous

Ultimately, the most important reason to schedule this appointment is that if there is truly a gas leak in the home, it poses a risk to the health of the entire family and all the pets living inside the home. A gas leak can secrete dangerous gas into the air that is invisible to see, yet deadly. For example, if the home fills with carbon monoxide, it can lead to death. In less severe instances, gas leaks can still lead to respiratory illnesses and a variety of health problems.

2. A gas leak is expensive

If the gas is leaking, it is going to cost significantly more money to keep running the home. The gas leak could even be outdoors but if it is leaking at any location, it is going to significantly increase the annual cost to homeowners.

3. A gas leak is flammable

If gas is indeed leaking, it could also cause an explosion or fire. This creates a danger in addition to the one caused by potentially breathing in the fumes. For example, if the gas is not turned off correctly during a repair, it could result in even more buildup of toxic gas within the home that is dangerous to breathe and even flammable. There are shutoff valves in the home and outside that can help to prevent this but a novice homeowner may not realize where to locate them or how to use them. A professional, such as ourselves, will understand what safety precautions are necessary and take them every time.
