FAQS

How can I detect a gas leak in my home?

Detecting a gas leak requires vigilance. Signs of a gas leak may include a distinctive, sulphur-like odour (added to natural gas for detection), hissing sounds near gas appliances or pipes, dead or dying houseplants, and physical symptoms like dizziness, nausea, or headaches. If you suspect a gas leak, it’s crucial to evacuate the area immediately and call a professional gas fitter or your gas company for inspection and repair.

What should I do if I suspect a gas leak in my home?

If you suspect a gas leak, prioritise safety. Open windows and doors to ventilate the area, turn off the gas supply at the mains if it’s safe to do so, and avoid using any electrical devices, switches, or open flames. Evacuate the building and call your local gas company or a licensed gas fitter for immediate assistance. Gas leaks are serious safety hazards and require prompt professional attention.

How can I prevent gas leaks in my home?

Preventing gas leaks starts with regular maintenance and awareness. Schedule annual inspections of your gas appliances by a qualified gas fitter. Ensure proper ventilation for gas appliances and never block vents or chimneys. Teach household members about the smell of gas and what to do if they suspect a leak. Avoid DIY gas work, and if you’re planning any excavation on your property, call your local gas company to locate and mark gas lines to prevent accidental damage.
