What Causes Gas Line Leaks?
Gas leaks typically occur because of broken or damaged seals. The pipes that carry gas into your home include a seal that firmly attaches the gas line to the appliance. You might have gas heater or a gas stove in your home that uses a gas line. The seal added to the end forms a tight bond between the pipe and appliance and keeps gas from leaking out. These seals can break down over time or simply crack and lead to gas leaks. Similarly, old gas lines can also crack or rupture, again leading to gas leakage in your home. If any of these issues occur in your home, it is important to seek professional assistance immediately.
Why Are Leaks Dangerous?
A gas leak is a potentially fatal problem in your home. There are two main things that you need to consider in relation to those leaks. The first is that the gas builds up in the atmosphere, and you and your family inhale that gas as you sleep. This gas can cause you to feel sick and have breathing problems, and a long-term leak can even lead to death. You also need to know that the gas in your home is flammable. Lighting a cigarette, a candle, or anything else in your home can cause a fire when the spark interacts with the gas. This can cause explosions in your home leading to a total loss.
How Does A Technician Perform a Gas Leak Detection?
Technicians use a series of different products and detectors to check your home for signs of a gas leak. These products include ultrasonic detectors, infrared imaging detectors, infrared point detectors, and holographic detectors. Some of these detectors monitor the home for changes in wave lengths, which can identify a potential leak. Other detectors, including the ultrasonic detectors, look for changes in the sound levels of the home. Though you cannot hear the soft hissing sound of the gas leaking out, the detector will instantly pick up the sound and lead the technician to the gas leak.
