Signs Your Home’s Gas Line is in Need of Repair
Your home’s gas line can provide important functions to both your heating and plumbing systems. When your gas line breaks down, it can affect other major functions and amenities within your home. That’s why it’s so important to take notice when your gas line shows signs that it needs to be repaired. Those signs to keep an eye out for include:
Bubbling in Your Yard.
You can typically only notice “bubbling” in your yard when there is standing water in your yard and that water is bubbling. If you notice this in your yard, you likely have a gas leak and should contact a professional to schedule a repair.
Dead Grass or Plants in Your Yard.
If you have a patch in your yard where grass and plants are dying, but not anywhere else, it may be because of a gas leak. A natural gas leak causes grass and plants to die because the leaking gas takes the place of the oxygen they need to live.
Distinct Sulfur Smell.
A distinct sulfur smell, or a smell of rotten eggs, is the most telltale sign of a gas leak. Anytime you notice this distinct smell, you should call the professionals at Jackson Comfort Services to have them come out to your home and conduct a repair.
Issues with Heating or Appliances.
In the event you are having difficulty using your gas-powered appliances as well as difficulty heating your home, it is likely due to an issue with your gas line.
Unexplained Increases in Gas Bill.
If your energy consumption habits remain unchanged and yet your gas bills are increasing every month, then you may have an issue with your gas line that should be addressed by a professional. Even a minor gas leak can lead to a substantial increase in your gas bill.
Regardless of your home’s gas line issue at hand, Jackson Comfort Services expert technicians will determine your needs before any work is done, so you can make the best decision possible for your family and your Northfield, OH home.
