Gas Leak Detection

Look, Listen & Smell to Detect Possible Gas Leaks

Natural gas is an efficient and generally safe way to power appliances like hot water heaters. But gas leaks can cause fires and explosions and injure and kill. That’s why gas leak detection is critical to the safety of your home and all that live there. Be aware of the signs and how to sense if there’s a leak, and what to do if you detect one. And rely on us to then fix it.

How To Detect a Gas Leak in Your Home or on Your Property

There are a number of indicators that can help you detect leaking natural gas in your home or along the gas line on your property. Be aware of the smells, sights and sounds that signal the presence of a leak.

  • A foul odor like rotten eggs from a chemical compound added to odorless natural gas to indicate that it’s leaking.
  •  A persistent hissing sound along gas lines or at connections.
  •  A pilot light that’s out or burns yellow or orange and not a clean blue.
  •  Persistent bubbling in standing water.
  •  Discolored or dead vegetation around the pipeline area.
  •  Dense white cloud or fog.
  •  Slight mist or ice.
  •  Unexplained frozen ground near the pipeline.

 

What to Do If You Detect Signs of a Gas Leak

The sulfuric odor that resembles rotten eggs is added to odorless natural gas as a safety precaution. Think of the smell as an alarm that announces potential danger. Gas that’s not fully burned and ventilated can also create poisonous carbon dioxide. If you detect the leaking gas odor in your home:

  • Exit the premises immediately on foot.
  • Do not turn on or off any electronic devices, including phones or garage door opener.
  • Do not start or shut off motor vehicles or electrical equipment near the structure where you smelled the leak.
  • Never strike a match or a lighter and avoid any open flame or ignition sources.
  • Move to a safe distance from the structure if you smell the odor outside.
  • Call CenterPoint Energy at 888-876-5786, or in an emergency call 911. Do not email or contact the company via its website about gas leaks, and never assume someone else has reported the leak. CenterPoint checks natural gas leaks at no cost to you.
  • Alert nearby neighbors to the leak so they stay a safe distance from any danger.
  • Stay away until CenterPoint or the emergency responders have told you that it is safe to return to your home/property.
  • Call Rub-A-Dub Plumbing at (903) 615-3038 for immediate 24/7 service. As soon as it’s safe to do so, we’ll find and fix the source of the leak in your home or on your property.
