Causes of Gas Leaks!
Gas leaks in the home can expose you and your family to a potentially dangerous situation. If you hear a hissing sound near a gas appliance or smell the foul odour of gas inside or around your home, you may have a leak and need to take immediate action. Common causes of gas leaks and poor installation include:
- Broken seals on appliances that cause gas to escape
- Corrosion of old or faulty piping underneath your home
- Inadequate ventilation of an unflued appliance, causing condensation on walls and ceilings, sooting, smells, and discolouration of painted surfaces or textiles
- Poor gas supply that causes appliances to not work properly or shut down.
