Gas Line Repair and Replacement
Natural gas is an excellent way to power your home and provides an energy efficient solution for many appliances around the house. Gas fireplaces are on of the most common features to use gas lines, but there are a variety of items around the home that may employ natural gas. If you have gas lines on your property, they should be inspected and any sign of damage should be treated quickly. Talk to us about gas line repairs and replacements in Fort Worth, TX right away. Lasiter and Lasiter Plumbing will fix any plumbing problem the safe way.
Our plumbers are well versed in handling gas lines and can inspect them if you have any suspicions of damage. The first thing you will notice when a gas line is leaking is a “rotten egg” smell. Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of natural gas and can cause a serious issue if it is leaking into your home. Breathing in carbon monoxide will lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. Unfortunately, this gaseous byproduct is odorless. Because of this, a rotten egg smell is added to ensure that if there is a leak, you smell it before you are poisoned.
What to do if you smell natural gas?
Once you smell a gas line leak, immediately do the following:
- Shut off all natural gas valves
- Leave the house and do not turn on any appliances
- Do NOT smoke or create any open flames
- Do NOT attempt to find the leak yourself
- Call 911 and your utility company
- NEVER attempt repairs on your own
