Gas leaks are most often caused by broken or damaged pipes, worn seals, or improperly installed appliances. Fortunately, professional gas line repairs are quick and often inexpensive. Working with natural gas is dangerous, and making line repairs requires specific tools, protective equipment, and an understanding of not only what to do, but also the correct order in which to do it. A simple mistake could have disastrous consequences.
Gas line repair costs vary widely with the scope of work. Running a new line for one of your appliances, for example, won’t cost more than a few hundred dollars, but if your main gas line needs to be repaired or replaced, the project may cost several thousand dollars.
If you have a gas leak in your home, you’re not just wasting money and natural resources; you’re in danger of inhaling deadly fumes or losing your home in an explosion. In other words, gas line repairs aren’t something to ignore. Pay attention to the following signs that you might have a gas leak:
- a strong “rotten egg” smell in your home
- dead or discolored grass or shrubs near a gas line
- a whistling sound near appliances or pipes
- dust blowing near a pipe.
If you notice any of these telltale signs, leave your home and call 911 and your utility company immediately.
