Common Signs That You Need Gas Line Repair
Most Chattanooga homeowners use gas-powered appliances safely for many years, but like any other piece of plumbing, your gas lines are susceptible to damage and age. Here are the most common signs that signal that you have issues with your gas line and that it’s time to call a professional.
If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs in the house, it’s usually a sign that you have a gas leak. While natural gas has no odor, gas suppliers add a chemical that gives it a distinctive smell to alert homeowners of an issue. Don’t ignore the smell of natural gas in the house; get to a place of safety as quickly as possible and call a professional plumber.
Another sign that you have a problem in one of your natural gas lines is if you hear a hissing sound coming from an appliance, which usually means there’s a leak in a pipe.
Leaking gas lines also affect your appliances. When a gas line that serves a significant appliance develops a leak, it can cause the appliance to lose efficiency to the point that it fails to perform as needed.
Lastly, if you notice that your gas bills suddenly spike and you haven’t changed your usage, it usually means there’s a leak in the plumbing. Keep an eye on your gas bill because even a tiny leak can send your utility bill skyrocketing.
If you suspect that you have problems with your gas lines, call us for professional gas line repair and get peace of mind knowing that the problem is fixed correctly by a highly-trained technician.
Why Hire a Pro for Gas Appliance Hook Up
Whether you want to install a gas stove, washing machine, or barbecue, it’s always best to hire a professional to hook it up.
Well, for starters, when you consider the cost of the average gas-powered appliance, it’s better to have a pro hook up the gas rather than risk damaging your investment by trying to do it yourself.
Another thing to consider is potential damage to your home. When you connect a new appliance to your existing plumbing, there’s always the potential for damage. If you don’t know what you’re doing or are too heavy-handed when connecting one pipe to another, you risk loosening a joint or damaging a pipe, which can lead to a leak. Also, if you have a complex setup, it’s best to have a professional with the right training to do the job.
Lastly, consider how difficult it is to install some gas appliances. Complicated installations are fraught with various things that can go wrong, so it’s better to leave this work to a professional gas fitter who knows what they’re doing and guarantees to do the job right.
