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.
