Signs of a Gas or Fuel Leak
Natural gas is an efficient and cost-effective form of energy, but it also has the potential to leak. Knowing the signs of a gas leak can protect yourself and your family.
• Natural gas doesn’t have a natural smell, but gas companies add one; if you smell rotten eggs, it could be a gas leak
• Some gas leaks make a hissing sound, often when it’s related to gas stoves or other appliances
• If your gas leak is outside, it will often kill plants and other vegetation; if you notice plants around your gas line are dying, it’s probably leaking
If you smell gas or suspect a gas leak in your home or business, it’s important to leave immediately as they can cause fires or explosions if gas interacts with electrical or fire sources.
