Gas Lines and Leaks
A great investment for any home is a gas-powered appliance. Whether it is a gas range, furnace, or anything else, these units are expensive but cost-effective in the long run. But unlike a traditional counterpart, a gas unit does require more attention and maintenance. This is because, throughout a house, there are several pipes in the slab, underground, and in the walls, that bring gas into the home. If something should ever happen to the gas lines, there can be serious consequences. Don’t take any risks when it comes to gas line repairs for your Pottstown, PA home. Contact Drainmen Plumbing Inc at 484-685-3336 for immediate and reliable service.
What Causes Gas Line Leaks?
The causes of a gas line leak are numerous and vary from home to home. When you have appliances like gas ranges and propane furnaces, there are a lot of pipes, valves, connections, and more than require attention. A leak can be because of things like:
- Wear & Tear: As appliances age, the seals and valves that connect piping to units can age, corrode, and weaken. When this happens, gas can slowly leak out into the home.
- Poor Piping: Beneath and in the slab of a home is intricate piping that brings natural gas or propane to units like furnaces. Should any damage occur to those pipes, a leak can occur causing serious problems.
- Lack of Ventilation: Most units that require gas for power have some sort of vent or exhaust fan that releases carbon dioxide emissions. But if the vents are blocked for some reason, the gas can fill up a home.
As with any other appliance in your home, it is recommended to have inspections scheduled for any gas powered appliance at least once a year. An inspection can help prevent leaks, repair minor problems, and generally protect the longevity of your appliances. Most homeowners can agree, a gas powered furnace is an investment.
