Natural gas in the home provides us warmth for daily tasks like cooking, heating and hot water for showering. In the community, natural gas fuels power stations that provide essential electricity to homes, businesses and other buildings.
However, there’s always a small, but potentially dangerous possibility of using gas – gas leaks.
Want to know how to recognise the signs of and actively work to prevent gas leaks in your home?
Read more from the Fremantle plumber experts at Fremantle Plumbing to find out how.
The causes of gas leaks in the home
A variety of sources can take the blame for gas leaks. However, there are two common culprits: broken pipes and faulty appliances.
- Broken pipes
As you might already know, the piping beneath a home may, over time, erode and/or become faulty. This allows gas to escape from the pipes and seep up into your house and is something more associated with older homes
- Faulty appliances
Broken, poorly installed and/or maintained appliances such as boilers and gas cooktops can bring about gas leaks in the home. This can happen when the seal connecting the piping to the appliance gets damaged over time.
Ensure all initial gas piping is professionally and safely installed by a Perth gas fitter.
