A natural gas leak is odorless, which means you will not be able to smell gas if present. However, gas service companies add a “rotten egg” smell that usually can be easily detected in the case of a gas leak.
San Diego residents, if you smell natural gas or suspect a gas leak, it is important to act quickly and follow these steps before looking for gas leak repair services:
To help prevent a gas line leak, San Diego, it is important to make sure your gas appliances are properly installed and in a well-ventilated area and kept clean and in good working order. Annual inspections by a qualified San Diego gas leak technician also are recommended. To reduce a chance of fire, be sure to keep all combustible materials away from furnaces, water heaters, ranges or other gas appliances.
For additional peace of mind and safety, an easy-to-install home gas detection unit can be purchased at home centers for $35 to $50. Typical gas detectors will identify methane and propane gas.
