With several deaths per year linked to gas leaks in addition to hundreds of hospitalizations, gas safety and gas leak repair is something every household should take seriously.  If your appliance is badly fitted, gas can escape — typically from the gas hose that leads into your appliance or from around the seal — so you should always make sure your appliances are installed by a professional, licensed plumber or gas fitter.

If your appliances are a bit older and you are having them serviced, always use a licensed plumber. You should also be cautious of old or second-hand appliances, particularly if you are just moving into a new property or renting. Luckily there are some easy-to-spot signs that will tell you if your old appliances are faulty.

If you think you might have a gas leak, call Plumbzall today for a professional fix.

How do you detect a gas leak?

The most tell-tale sign of a leak is the smell of gas in your home. But in the case of a carbon monoxide leak, there are also particular physical symptoms you may suffer from if there is a leak.

If you are feeling lightheaded, ill, dizzy or nauseous you should go outside immediately. If the symptoms go away in the fresh air you could be feeling the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.

There may also be some clear signs from your household appliances that indicate a leak, even if you can’t smell gas:

  • If the flame is a tired-looking orange or yellow colour rather than crisp and blue, this can signal an issue.
  • If the pilot light always seems to blow out, there could be an issue.
  • On the outside of the appliance, keep an eye out for soot or any black or brown scorched areas.
  • Watch out for excessive condensation on the windows, or a musty smell in the air.

How do I prevent gas leaks?

The easiest way to deal with a gas leak is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. Your first line of defense is with your household appliances. Always make sure any appliance is installed by an accredited plumber to avoid a gas leak repair, and make sure you check them on a regular basis for signs of wear and tear.

Likewise, if they do require maintenance, make sure your engineer is registered. To avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, install an audible carbon monoxide alarm in your home. These are fairly cheap and generally available from DIY stores and look similar to smoke alarms. Make sure they are installed in an open space like a hallway and change the batteries annually.

What should I do if I smell gas?

To avoid the worst, you should always take action immediately if you smell gas in your home. gas leaks safety:

  • The first step is to turn off the gas supply at your gas meter. The valve that regulates the flow of gas will be connected to your pipe at a right angle, but can sometimes be difficult to locate and/or access.
  • That’s why you should always familiarise yourself with whether your gas supply can be turned off — especially if you’re in a new property or have recently made changes to the layout.
  • The next step is to get fresh air into your home to help disperse the gas. Open all the windows and doors and leave them open to ensure the air is able to flow.
    If you can’t open the windows, get outside and into the fresh air as soon as possible.
  • While you are airing out your home, avoid using any electrical switches, as the sparks could cause an explosion. This includes light switches or electronic doorbells. Similarly, avoid smoking, using matches or burning any naked flames (e.g. candles) as they could all ignite the leaked gas.
  • Once you have taken these steps and dealt with the imminent danger, it’s time to call in the experts.
  • In the unlikely event that a fire breaks out, your first call should be to the fire service on 000.
