Gas Leak Detection in South Florida

banner

Gas lines can often develop small leaks that are undetectable because they cannot be smelled. At Reliable Gas Services, we have the equipment and experience to find even the smallest leaks and repair them.

Many homes use gas to power appliances such as clothes dryers, water heaters, furnaces, ovens and much more. If a leak is present, it can slowly accumulate to the point that it presents the risk of a fire or explosion. Local gas utilities add a scent to natural gas and propane that give off a “rotten egg” smell if a leak is large. Small leaks can be troublesome, and they usually aren’t large enough for the typical homeowner to be able to smell.

If you ever do notice that rotten egg odor, however, here’s what you need to do.

  • Leave your home or office as soon as you can and get everyone else out as well.
  • Leave the doors open to help with ventilation and get a safe distance from the building.
  • Don’t turn any light switches on or off, and don’t plug or unplug any electrical equipment. This could lead to a spark that could trigger an explosion.
  • Call your gas utility and tell them of the leak so that they can shut off the gas supply.

At Reliable Gas Services, our technicians use handheld gas leak detection equipment to find smaller breaches in gas lines. It traces the pipes within a home, focusing on the line connections, or “unions,” as well as the areas where the lines connect with gas-powered appliances. In addition, we can also find leaks either at or near your home’s gas meter.

While most of the small leaks we find are below the levels that could be considered dangerous, they still cost money because they waste gas. From a waste perspective, they are similar to a toilet that continually runs or a faucet that drips. Eventually, it is very likely that a gas leak will worsen over time and pose a substantial risk to your home. It will also become much more expensive to fix.

Have a Reliable Gas Services professional test your lines for leaks so that we can address any small issues before they become big problems. Call us today and get the peace of mind of knowing that your lines are as safe and secure as possible.
