Homeowners in Northwest Arkansas, SW Missouri, or Fort Smith may know how to detect a gas leak by smelling it, but many people don’t know that gas has other signs of leakage. Natural gas has no odor or color, and the supplier has to add an odorant to make leaks detectable.
If you suspect that you have a gas line leak, call Paschal Air, Plumbing & Electric to get to the root of the issue. We have been serving Springdale, Fayetteville and Southwest Missouri for more than 50 years. Our licensed and insured professionals are A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau and always strive for 100% customer satisfaction.
In the event you can’t smell it, other warning signs that a hazard may be present include:
When you detect a gas leak, identify the source and turn the appliance off. If it’s coming from a pilot light that’s out, turn off the appliance’s safety valve, open the doors and windows for five minutes before trying to relight it. If your appliances use electronic ignition, turn off the gas safety valve and call a professional for help.
Extreme natural events like earthquakes and flooding can cause gas leaks. Turn the main valve off for your home and contact 911. If the signs of gas leaking are coming from outdoors, get safely away and call 911 elsewhere. Do not make a phone call near the vicinity to avoid a fire or explosion.
