Identifying & Responding to Gas Leaks

Gas lines are a modern-day convenience that provide homeowners with a more cost-effective way to run some appliances, like gas stoves and water heaters. Any time you have gas pipes running through your home, there is a risk of a leak.

How can you tell if you have a gas leak? Contrary to what some people think, carbon monoxide detectors do not detect natural gas leaks. Instead, you will need to be on the lookout for several signs that could indicate that your gas lines are leaking.

Signs of a gas leak include:

  • The smell of sulfur or rotten eggs
  • A damaged gas pipe
  • Hissing or blowing from gas lines, gas appliances, or a gas source
  • Bubbles in water
  • White mist or fog near gas lines
  • Dead houseplants
  • Dizziness, fatigue, or nausea

Gas leaks are dangerous because they can lead to fires and explosions. Therefore, if you suspect a gas leak in your home, the first thing to do is evacuate your house and call 911. Afterward, you can reach out to our professional Santa Fe plumbers to come and help you repair or replace your gas line safely and effectively.

    "Excellent work"
    Our heat went out late Saturday night - We called Capitol Plumbing and the crew, two men, Xavier and Alex, were here early Sunday morning. The furnace was removed and by 6:00 pm the new furnace was up and working - The heat was on and the house warmed up quite fast. Xavier and Alex were friendly and worked very efficiently replacing the old furnace. They were very helpful and informative and explained everything about the new furnace and answered all our questions. When crew had completed the job, they waited until the temperature was up to the degrees necessary for furnace to work. Thank you for a job well-done and I would recommend Capitol Plumbing and Heating in Santa Fe to anyone who needs plumbing work done. Thank you, we are once again warm and cozy.

    "Emergency service was also quick and efficient and very Professional."
    Xavior, arrived at a much needed time to fix our leak. He was fast to detect the leak and addressed the situation in a professional manner. It was late and after hours but he was not hurried and explained what happened, what he did and what has yet to be done. If you are not using them or need good service we recommend them, they responded among the many we tried to reach, so they will have our business for some time to come. Thank you for relieving our problem and minds.

    "Service with humor!"
    After being stood up by another plumber we called Paul's Plumbing & Heating, Inc. They contacted Xavier and Beto from Capitol Plumbing and Heating who fixed our outdoor faucet, which would not turn off. Xavier explained everything and showed us the process. He was professional, witty, and patient with my questions. I highly recommend them and am also impressed Paul's Plumbing contacted them since they didn't have any available crews. Both companies have customers' best interests in mind.

    "Very happy with Xavior and Capitol"
    My kitchen sink x2 was hopelessly plugged up. Filthy water that had backed up was just sitting there. That is so unhealthy. I called Capitol this morning and they said they'd send out a serviceman in a couple of hours, which they did. Xavior came by and did a great job. He was polite, knowledgeable, smart and mess left behind for me! And best of all, the drains are running perfectly! Capitol has also installed my furnace and water tank, all within the last year or so (3/2021). And I am VERY pleased with that result as well....thanks to Adrian for that....great job.
    - Xavior did a great job
    Both Tomas and Xavier Martinez were prompt and courteous. They went beyond what was a leaking hot water valve. After replacing the valve and water line hose, they checked the boiler system and found it was not properly operating and took care of it for us. We were thankful for their thoroughness and quick service.

    "Excellent friendly knowledgeable service."
    Had them install a complete new system for heating water and and radiant heat system. Went to a tankless hot water system. They worked very efficiently and wasted no time installing the system. Workers were friendly and explained everything about the equipment and answered my questions since I was not familiar with the tankless hot water system and the radiant heat used in homes. They hauled away the old tank and boiler and a soft water system that was out dated. It took about two days but the water was only off for part of the first day and we had hot water that night for showering. Over all a very positive experience and I would highly recommend Capitol Plumbing & Heating of Santa Fe for all your plumbing needs.
