Warning Signs You Need Edmonton Gas Line Repair Services

When gas lines in your home have an issue, it’s usually in the form of a leak. Unfortunately this isn’t something which you can take your time with, you’ll need to get a professional there right away. Here are some of the most typical gas leak symptoms to be aware of and alert for in your home.

Sealing Materials

As gas lines age, the pipes themselves generally remain quite robust, however the joints between lengths of pipes can start to leak over time. This has a number of undesirable effects: It wastes fuel, can sicken people and pets in the house, and of course natural gas is flammable and explosive. It’s important to inspect the line for any signs of cracks or holes — or even just places that look like they are deteriorating and may crack in the near future.

Hissing Noises

Sometimes those tiny cracks or holes can be really difficult—or nearly impossible—to spot just by looking at the line. But, there is an audible clue that makes it a bit easier: hissing noises from appliances or the line itself. If you hear hissing that sounds like air escaping from a very small hole, that’s a big sign your system needs gas leak repair services. You should shut-off the valve immediately and call a plumber to investigate.

Rotten Egg Smell

The scent of sulfur or rotten eggs is another sign that something isn’t right, though that smell does not always indicate a problem with the line itself. If you smell a sulfur odour but don't hear hissing or see any cracks, open windows and check your appliances. For example, the oven or stove could have accidentally been left on after cooking. If that’s all it is, shut off the appliance and let the house air out a bit. But, if you can't find anything unusual happening with your appliances and the smell persists, shut-off your gas valve right away and call a service professional.

Our natural gas is odorized with a chemical called mercaptan, because natural gas is odorless without it. Mercaptan smells like rotten eggs and is hard to miss because we aren’t used to that smell being around.

Rust or Corrosion

Fuel lines are often made of metal piping, and while metal is incredibly durable and long-lasting, it does suffer from rust and other types of corrosion over time. Rust eats away at the metal, thinning it to the point where it eventually creates a leak and you need repairs. The rate of corrosion is directly tied to the environment the pipes are in. If they are moist they’ll corrode much faster than if they are dry. If you notice signs of rust and corrosion on your gas piping, it’s best to get it checked out sooner rather than later—before it causes a major issue.

Malfunctioning Appliances

Is your water heater suddenly struggling to produce hot water, you can't seem to get your stove up to the right temperature, or your heating and cooling system isn't working well? It could be that a leak is preventing your gas appliances from getting sufficient fuel to function properly and at full power, or maybe the size of the gas line is wrong. Of course, it could also be that the appliance itself is malfunctioning because of a reason unrelated to fuel supply. But if you notice problems with multiple gas-fueled appliances, such as fireplaces, that are not working very well, then you may need an appointment for gas line repairs.

Give us a call to chat with our friendly customer service staff and get all your questions answered quickly and easily, or check out our answers to common questions below.

Why is My Gas Line Leaking?

There are a number of reasons why your fuel line may be experiencing a leak, but we won't be able to pinpoint the problem until our team has had a chance to investigate in person and diagnose what exactly is going on. Common causes of leaks include:

  • Wear and tear over time to an aging pipe

  • Rusted, corroded pipes

  • Weakened or broken seals at the point where the gas pipe hooks into an appliance

  • Inexperienced gas line installation that was not handled correctly in the first place

Are Gas Leaks Dangerous?

Gas leaks can pose a serious risk to you and your family. Natural gas is flammable and explosive in the right concentrations so fixing leaks can’t wait. While a faint smell of rotten eggs doesn’t require a 911 call, you should be calling out a plumber asap. If the smell is strong we recommend opening your windows and leaving the house until a plumber / gasfitter can investigate. You can even call your utility provider in the case of a gas leak and they will investigate, although they often won’t do the repairs.

Do Plumbers Work on Gas Lines?

Yes, we do. In Alberta most plumbers are also gasfitters by trade, so we’ve got you covered!.

Is it Okay to Fix a Leaking Gas Pipe With Duct Tape?

Absolutely not! Please do not do this. It will not last long, and a leak can have serious consequences for your health and your property’s safety. Even as a temporary measure until a local plumber can get there, duct tape is not the best option. If you know you have a leak, the valve that controls gas flow into your home should be shut-off immediately, and you should open windows to ventilate the house. Then, call a professional for repair.

Do I Need Gas Line Repairs, or Replacement?

We hear this question fairly often, and in our professional experience, it really depends on the nature of damage and the pipes’ age. If the damage is localized in one small area, gas line repairs will likely be sufficient to get it back in a safe, fully functioning condition. But if a large amount of the line has suffered damage, or the line is more than 50-years-old, replacement is often more practical, effective, and long-lasting than repairs—and more financially effective as well.

How Much Does it Cost for Gas Line Repair in Edmonton?

It’s completely understandable that you want to know right away how much gas line repair will cost, but there are too many influencing factors to give you a solid estimate before we’ve had the opportunity to inspect the line in-person. Once we’ve been out to your house and had a look at the situation, we can offer you an affordable, upfront rate so you’ll know exactly how much it will cost before we begin the work.
