Know The Signs Of A Gas Leak

One of the biggest signs of a gas leak is the distinct odor propane gives off. If a leak has occurred, you may note some nasty smells in the air, similar to that of skunks or rotten eggs. But the smell isn’t always very obvious. Be on the lookout for physical symptoms, such as dizziness, fatigue, or nausea. It’s always best to play it safe, should you fear anything is amiss!

What To Do

If you do suspect a gas leak, take the proper precautions. Get yourself and your family away from your home and into open air. And don’t use open flames, electronics, lights, or similar items if a leak is suspected. When you know everyone is in a safe place, call your retailer or an emergency number so someone can come and inspect the situation right away.

Above all, the safety of you and your family is most important! Never stick around and inspect the problem if you feel something is out of the ordinary. It’s always best to leave it to an expert, who knows how to handle these situations in the safest way possible.

Invest In Regular Inspections

Regular inspections of your gas appliances is important for gaining the peace of mind you and your family deserve. There’s no better way to ensure that everything is running smoothly year after year! Not to mention, you won’t have to wait until an issue occurs before learning of possible malfunctions with your appliance.

If you’ve had any changes, maintenance work, new installations, or potentials signs of a gas leak, inform your technician of this. Every homeowner has their own, unique situation, and it’s important to let your retailer know of any issues or renovations that may affect the overall functioning of your appliance.

All in all, inspections offer you added protection and allow you to rest easy knowing you’ve taken every necessary step for keeping your home as safe as possible. Invest in one today!
