Gas Leak in Lower Hutt or Wellington | Watersmith Plumbing and Gas
Do you suspect a gas leak in your Lower Hutt or Wellington home?
Gas creates fast, convenient and easily controlled heat. If you already have appliances running on gas it makes economic sense to heat your home with gas heating. For cooking, most chefs will say gas is the only way to go.
Whether you have gas heating, gas hot water, gas hobs or a gas oven, make sure all your gas appliances are serviced annually. This helps them run efficiently and safely.
Natural gas is actually tasteless and odourless, but gas companies add a “rotten egg” smell that’s usually easily detected in the case of a gas leak.
A gas leak can be very dangerous and it is important that a certified gasfitter looks at and repairs any gas leak you may have on natural gas or LPG appliances or pipelines.
If you can smell gas around an appliance, turn it off immediately (or even better, turn off your metered gas supply). Make sure you extinguish all naked flames and ventilate the area by opening windows and doors.
Remember if you smell gas or you hear a gas hissing sound, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Get in touch for our prompt 24/7 emergency gasfitting service anywhere in Lower Hutt, the Hutt Valley or greater Wellington region.
