How to Tell Your Home’s Gas Lines Need to Be Replaced

Today, we’re going to talk about your gas lines. Some people ask, do you have to replace them every once in a while? The answer is yes, but how can you tell if your gas lines need to be replaced?

The number one sign is if you smell gas in your house. We all know what gas smells like. It’s got that rotten egg additive ingredient so you can smell it. Gas itself has no odor. They put the rotten egg smell in as a safety precaution. That way, you know if you have a gas leak. So if you smell gas in your house, it’s a sign that there’s definitely a problem.

How Rocketman Can Repair or Replace Your Gas Lines

If you have a gas leak in your home, my team at Rocketman will come out to handle it. We can pump up the system with air and see if it holds pressure. Then, we locate where the leak is and we fix it.

Now a lot of times, the leak is in a wall or under the slab of your house. Those are signs that your house probably needs to be replumbed. In other cases, you might have called the gas company, they came out and they smelled gas, so they turned off your gas and they took your meter away. Usually, that also means you are going to need to have a full house replumbing.

We can come out to your house, assess what needs to be done, and give you a price to do it so you can get your gas meter back and have a safe house to live in.
