Gas leaks can be very dangerous and potentially fatal if not handled or dealt with correctly. Here are some things you can do to minimise the risk of a gas leak or if the leak is already present, there are steps you can take to minimise the damage and ensure the safety of yourself, your family and your property.
The easiest way to identify a gas leak is by the odour. The smell of gas is unique and isn’t usually present unless something is wrong. Gas leaks caused by appliances are usually caused by poorly installed, poorly maintained or faulty appliances.
Gas leaks in pipes outside of your home or property can be much harder to detect. There are a few ways that you can help our Gas Plumbers identify the leak:
- Smell of gas that comes and goes
- If your pipes are underground, you may notice a dead patch of grass or if there is a puddle of water, you may notice that it is bubbling.
What to do if you suspect a gas leak?
If you believe you have a gas leak, the first thing you should do is turn the gas off at the meter to prevent it from entering your property. There are usually only two places in which your meter can be found:
- A metal box on the sidewall of your home or property or
- Under a plastic cover in your front garden. You should find a gas handle that is in line with the pipe. You’ll need to turn it 90 degrees so that it is at a right angle to the pipe.
If your property uses LPG instead, you’ll have an LPG cylinder just outside your home. Turn this off by closing the valve by turning it clockwise. Once you have completed the above:
Turn off all gas appliances
Go back inside and turn off all of your gas appliances. If your home has an older oven or heater, you may also need to extinguish the pilot light. There should be instructions on how to do this on your appliance.
If your home or property has any naked flames such as candles or oil burners, they should be put out immediately. You should then open some windows to allow for ventilation and you should go outside.
Once you have completed the above, phone a fully licensed gas plumber such as Fawcett Plumbing on 1300 328 238 or 0414 83 55 66 to come and rectify the issue.
Carbon Monoxide Dangers
Carbon monoxide is the result of the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. This can happen with any gas heating appliance, and in turn, most homes or properties.
You can be exposed to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide from using poorly maintained heating appliances, gas appliances that aren’t vented properly, clogged chimneys or blocked exhaust vents, using gas-powered tools or generators close to your homes entry points, using propane appliances and more. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can include the following:
- Persistent tiredness
- Shortness of breath
- Mild and severe Headaches
- Loss of consciousness
Preventing Carbon Dioxide Poisoning
Preventing carbon monoxide poisoning in your home or property is rather simple, below are a few different ways in which you can do so:
- Install a carbon monoxide detector in your home. The best place to install it is somewhere that would wake you up or alert you if it was to alarm. It is recommended that you replace your detector every 5 years.
- Have all your gas appliances serviced every year by a qualified technician.
- Use portable flameless chemical heaters outside only.
- When you purchase gas equipment, ensure it has the seal of a national testing agency, such as the Australian Gas Association.
- Ensure your gas appliances are vented properly. It is recommended that they rise slightly as they go outside, this minimises the risk of it leaking if the joints or seals aren’t tight enough.
- If your property has a chimney, make sure it is cleaned or cleared every year. If it is not, it can cause a build-up of carbon monoxide inside your property.
- Never burn charcoal indoors.
- Burning any kind of charcoal produces carbon monoxide.
Severe poisoning can also lead to death. Carbon monoxide is considered the most common single cause of poisoning both in the home and in the workplace. This is very alarming seeing as the human body doesn’t react in any form to the gas. That is why it is essential to regularly test your home or property. Fawcett Plumbing can conduct a carbon monoxide test at your home, just give us a call.
