Have you ever been suspicious of a hot water gas leak in your home heater but are uncertain as to how to go about identifying it? Trying to determine whether or not you have such a gas leak typically requires the skill and know-how of a professional, but there are a couple of simple techniques you can use in your efforts to accomplish this task on your own.
One of the most common and practical techniques to use is that of installing a portable gas leak detector in your home. This technique is not only easy, but remarkably safe and affords you the peace of mind and comfort needed to know that should a gas leak in your hot water heater ever occur, the detector will immediately identify it. This effective device can be purchased at any local hardware store and comes in a variety of sizes and prices. It is important when purchasing a detector that you read the instructions carefully so as to ensure you are getting test results that are not only accurate but you can safely trust.
If you don’t have a gas leak detector in your home, then take a moment and stand quietly next to your hot water heater and listen for a hissing sound. If you hear a hissing sound, this is a surefire indication that your water heater has a hot water gas leak that needs attention. When a hissing sound is present, do not take matters into your own hand, but rather take time out to call the professionals to your rescue. We all know full well how dangerous gas leaks of any type can be which is why the professionals here at Steve Mull Plumbing highly recommend you reach out to our experts in times like these.
