Signs of a Gas Leak
The natural gas you use in your home is typically safe and stable, but it can become a safety hazard. Unfortunately, many leaks go unnoticed for some time. It's also frequently difficult to find gas leaks, making the situation even more tricky. That's why it's crucial to be able to identify the warning signs and quickly seek professional gas leak repairs. Common indicators of a gas leak include:
- A distinct odor of rotten eggs with no obvious source
- Hissing or whistling noises in proximity to gas lines or appliances
- Discolored or dying vegetation near your gas lines
- Unexplained dizziness, fatigue, nausea or headaches
- Orange or yellow flames in gas appliances
- Rising gas bills that can't be explained
