Signs You Have a Gas Leak

While gas leaks are serious emergencies and need to be dealt with right away, it can often be difficult to tell if you have a leak.

Some common signs that you have a gas leak include:

  • A hissing sound coming from your gas line
  • Sudden, unexplained dizziness or fatigue
  • A bad odor that smells like rotten eggs
  • Dying plants and vegetation near your gas line
  • Condensation on the windows near the gas line
  • Unexplained increases in your gas bill
  • Inefficient or improperly working gas appliances

Gas leaks can be hazardous for you and your household to inhale, and they could also lead to expensive property damage and an increase in your monthly gas bill.

If you notice any of the above signs of a gas leak in your Evanston or North Shore home, call 847-999-4595 to reach the emergency gas plumbers at American Vintage Home!

Frequently Asked Questions about Gas Line Plumbing

Gas lines can seem mysterious because they’re often out of sight but present a real danger if neglected or poorly installed. At American Vintage Home, we’ve repaired and installed thousands of gas lines in the Chicago North Shore area. Here are some of the most common questions our customers ask us:

I want to switch from electric to gas appliances. Can you help me convert to gas?
Many people make the switch from electric to gas appliances in order to save money on energy. At American Vintage Home, we can help you convert by designing and installing the gas piping system that best meets your needs.
Do I need to get a permit to have a new gas line installed?
For safety reasons, you do need to get a permit from the town to install new gas line in your home. As experts who know the local building codes, American Vintage Home can take care of getting the permits for any gas line work we do on your home.
Can you install a gas line for my new grill or outdoor fireplace?
Yes, we frequently install gas lines for grills and fireplaces. We’ll identify the best route for the new gas line and get it installed safely and quickly. You’ll be grilling up dinner or sitting fireside in no time!
How can I find the shut-off valve for my main gas supply?
First, locate your gas meter. The main gas service shut-off valve is usually the first fitting on the natural gas supply pipe coming out of the ground next to the meter. Using a wrench, turn the valve 1/4 turn in either direction until the valve is crosswise to the pipe. If you have any doubts, call your utility company so they can help you locate the valve and shut it off.
What should I do if I think I have a gas leak?
If you think you may have a gas leak, open all the doors to let air flow through the house. Then get all people and pets out of the house. Once everyone is safely outside, call 911, your local fire department, or your utility company’s emergency number. After that, call American Vintage Home so we can locate and repair the gas leak and have you back in your home as soon as possible.
