Gas Leak Detection & Repair Service

Gas Leak Detection & Repair ServiceA gas leak can develop from lines that have small cracks that are undetectable to most people. However, at Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we have sophisticated gas leak detection equipment that can find the tiniest leaks so that gas leak repairs can immediately get underway. Our experts will use this equipment to make sure that all of your gas lines are properly fixed so that you and your family are once again safe in your home.

When a gas leak starts, it can lead to potentially deadly problems such as a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. If a leak is large, you’ll more than likely notice a “rotten egg” smell thanks to the scent that local gas utilities add to propane and natural gas. However, if the leak is small you probably won’t be able to smell it.

Should you notice that odor, however, you need to do the following as soon as possible:

  • Get your family members and pets out of your home immediately.
  • Make sure you leave the doors open so that your home can properly ventilate and then get as far away as you can.
  • Don’t plug or unplug any electrical equipment and don’t turn any light switches on or off. Even a tiny spark can trigger an explosion if you have a gas leak.
  • Immediately call your gas utility and tell them you have a gas leak so your supply can be shut off.

Our gas leak detection equipment traces pipes within a home, focusing on the “unions,” or areas where gas lines connect with your appliances such as furnaces. We can also find leaks that are located either at your home’s gas meter or near it.

Gas Leak Repair

As gas flows through your home, there are several areas where an issue can take place that can result in the need for gas leak repair.  When you call us, we’ll send a technician to your home who may need to replace certain valves, pipes or fittings. There are, however, some cases where all that needs to be done is an adjustment of pipes or valves. No matter what type of repair you may need, we’ll have it handled as fast as we can so that you can get back to normal. We can also conduct carbon monoxide testing once the gas leak repair is complete to make sure the home is safe.

You can count on the experts with Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning to take care of your issue promptly and efficiently, whether you need gas leak detection, gas leak repair, carbon monoxide testing or any other service.
