What To Do First
Gas leaks are a serious issue that must be addressed quickly. If you notice a smell like rotten eggs anywhere in your Akron home, it is a red flag that gas is leaking and you are at high risk of injury or death. Even if you just suspect an issue, you need to take every precaution necessary.
If you smell gas, make sure you:
- Evacuate family members and pets immediately. Extinguish any open flames and leave doors open as you exit. Do not flip any light switches or turn electric- or battery-powered appliances on or off, as a spark from static electricity could cause an explosion.
- Call your gas company or 911 to report the leak. Your gas company can initiate a lock-off to stop the gas flow to your home.
- Do not enter your home again until a gas company representative has inspected your home and determined it to be safe. They will advise you on any repairs that need to be made.
How We Detect Leaks
At Wilson Plumbing and Heating, our technicians are detection experts. Using sophisticated technology and years of observation skills, we can pinpoint the place where gas is leaking in your home. We can also install natural gas or carbon monoxide detectors and shut-off valves, along with providing regular safety inspections, to protect you from future problems.
When we perform gas leak inspections, we look closely at your gas-powered appliances. We make sure their installation is correct and that the vents are working properly.
How We Make Repairs
Our technicians possess the required experience and skill to repair any broken pipes or vents that are allowing gas to leak. We also look for lower temperatures or hissing noises in the gas pipeline, which can indicate leaks. These subtle changes are not always apparent to homeowners, but our technicians are trained to notice these danger signs right away.
Gas leaks occur due to the normal aging process of fittings in your home’s gas delivery system. By setting up annual inspections with us, you’ll have the peace of mind that your family is protected from harm.
