Gas Leak Repairs in Elkhart

What Causes Gas Leaks?

Gas leaks can happen for a variety of reasons. Gasses and liquids are both “fluids,” which means all it takes is a microscopic fracture in the line transporting them for a leak to form. These small fractures can happen for a number of different reasons. While most major leaks happen as a result of some sort of drastic change to your system, there are plenty of small factors that can contribute to leaks forming.

Gas leaks can be caused by:

  • Gas line age
  • Corrosion
  • Changes in gas pressure
  • Foundation shifting or settling
  • Collapsed lines
  • Slab damage

Signs You Have a Gas Leak

There may be times where you can’t necessarily smell a gas leak. Sometimes the leak is so small that the smell is all but disbursed by the time the gas leaks into the air. That doesn’t mean that the gas has disbursed—over time, the gas will still continue to build up, and that can lead to serious problems. That means every homeowner should be paying attention for signs of a gas leak at all times in order to quickly react if they discover one.

A gas-powered stove or range is arguably your best friend when it comes to detecting gas leaks. If the flame on your burner appears weak, feeble, or orange or yellow in color as opposed to a vibrant blue, then there’s more than likely a problem with your gas line allowing too much nitrogen and oxygen into the mixture. Likewise, if you find that the pilot light in your furnace, water heater, or gas-powered fireplace frequently gives out, then there’s a good chance it isn’t getting enough gas, signaling a problem in your line.

When you suspect you may have a gas line leak, make sure you trust the experts from Henry Smith Plumbing, Heating & Cooling to get it fixed right. Contact us today.
