How to Know There’s a Gas Leak in Your Home

Monday, December 4th, 2023

Having gas service at your home is extremely beneficial. However, gas lines do come with risks, and one of those risks is a gas leak. The problem with gas leaks is that they are often colorless and odorless, making them difficult to identify.

When you do suspect that you have a gas leak, you need to schedule service with a gas line plumber in Dover, PA right away. You can keep reading to learn more about some signs that can indicate you have a gas leak. We’re also highlighting some key safety tips that can help keep your family protected from a gas leak now and into the future.

Bad Odors

One of the easiest ways to identify a gas leak is by paying attention to unusual odors coming from your furnace. While gas does not usually have any smell, some gas service providers will add an odor that smells similar to rotten eggs in an effort to make it easier to identify gas leaks. 

It’s also possible that exhaust air mixing in with the clean air in your home can indicate a gas leak. If something is wrong with your furnace and allowing exhaust air into your home instead of outside, there’s a good chance you also have a gas leak somewhere.

Houseplants Dying

If you have house plants that are wilting or dying without any explainable reason, it may be a gas leak. You may be tempted to shrug it off as watering your plant too much or too little, but it is important to consider the alternative. 

Hissing or Bubbling Sounds

A gas leak may result in either hissing or bubbling sounds as the gas escapes the line. The sound depends on the size of the hole and the amount of pressure that the gas is under. High pressure may result in a hissing sound, while lower pressure may result in a bubbling sound.

Gas Usage

You also want to pay attention to your monthly gas bill to watch for signs of a leak. If you notice your gas usage steadily creeping up or you notice a large jump in usage at one time, this could be because of a gas leak. Of course, if you have gas appliances that you only run during the winter like a furnace, that could be one reason to see an increase in gas usage. 

If you have concerns about a potential gas leak, give our team a call to schedule service. We can check your gas lines in the rest of your furnace to make sure that everything is secure with no obvious issues. If something is wrong, we can fix the problem and prevent it from happening again.
