Gas leaks are not only one of the most dangerous issues that can occur in your home; they can be deadly. A major threat from a gas leak is asphyxiation, which can cause brain damage and even death. The gas lines you use to heat your home and operate some of your appliances are actually part of your plumbing system. That’s why you need licensed, professional plumbing services that operate by city codes and permits if you are experiencing a natural gas leak in your home. Getting a gas leak detected and repaired quickly and safely is key to the well-being of your family and your property. If you suspect a gas leak, get out first and call us second. If you feel an immediate threat, call 911. We service all throughout Austin metroplex, and also offer gas line installation services. You can expect great, and safe, services from JL Phelps Plumbing.
If you are certain you have a gas leak and need gas detection, don’t try to repair anything yourself - and definitely don’t try to cut the gas off. Natural gas is a dangerous issue to deal with. Just get your family and pets out of the house and far enough away to be safe and then call us. If you feel you have an emergency situation, get out of the house and then call 911. It’s always better safe than sorry when dealing with natural gas leaks! Leave the door open on your way out so gas can get out and fresh air can get in. Don’t use electronics, flip any switches, and don’t smoke. If you can quickly get a window or two open, do so. If not, just get out, away, and call us for licensed, professional gas detection and repair services.
One way to know if you need gas detection services is if you can smell, hear, or see gas. While gas doesn’t have a smell naturally, the gas company adds a “rotten egg” type smell to it, so you can have a strong indication if there is a leak. You can also hear an odd hissing or blowing sound around your gas appliances or gas lines. Some outdoor indicators are dead greenery in the middle of live greenery around or near your gas lines, bubbles in the water, and dirt blowing around when there is no wind. We offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee on all of our services and all technicians are plumbers are trained, licensed, background checked, and drug tested. We’ll service your gas line system safely and effectively.
While there are many benefits to using gas as a power source in your home, one of the main benefits is the cost efficiency gas provides. It’s simply cheaper to operate home heating appliances using gas than electricity. CPS Energy states that a home with combined energy of both gas and electric use 20% less energy than an all electric home. Appliances, such as hot water heaters and clothes dryers, use a significantly less amount of energy to operate than their all electric counterparts.
