Dying Vegetation

Don’t be too quick to blame your lack of a green thumb if you notice that vegetation and grass is dying in your yard, especially if this seems to be a localized occurrence. When gas leaks on its way to your home, it can effectively poison the soil and the vegetation about the pipe. If you have an area of yellowing grass or a spot in your yard where nothing seems to last, it could in fact be due to a gas leak. Look for blowing dirt, as well, which can result from the release of gas beneath the dirt.

Hissing Sounds

Do you hear strange hissing sounds when you are near gas appliances in your home, or when in the vicinity of your gas line outdoors? If so, you need to contact the appropriate authorities as soon as possible. These hissing sounds may be the sound of natural gas escaping your gas lines. We will determine if this is the case, and can resolve the problem as needed.

Sulfuric Odor

Natural gas is, in fact, naturally odorless. The stench of rotten eggs that we associate with natural gas is added to the mix as a safety measure. If you smell this odor in your home, make sure that you contact us right away.
