Licensed Gas Plumber Melbourne

Gas leaks can be dangerous and potentially lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, fires and explosions. When there’s a gas leak inside your home, the first thing you may notice is the smell of the gas around your appliances. Gas leaks in appliances are typically caused by poorly fitted, badly maintained or faulty appliances.

Signs Of A Gas Leak – What To Look For

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include feeling dizzy or lightheaded, nausea, shortness of breath and chest pain. Go outside immediately and call a gas plumber.

Gas leak detection outside your home can be harder. Does the smell of gas come and go?
For pipes that are underground, is there dead grass or plants where the gas leak may be?
If there puddles on the ground, you may see bubbles coming out of the ground
Once you’ve decided there could be a gas leak, you need to act fast.

The First Thing To Do Is To Turn Off The Gas At The Meter

You’ll find this in a metal box on the side wall of your home or under a domed plastic cover in your front garden. Turn the gas handle 90 degrees, so that it’s at right angles to the pipe. If your home uses LPG gas instead of piped natural gas, go outside and find the cylinder. Close the valve by turning it clockwise.

Next, go back inside and make sure that your gas appliances are all turned off. For any older style gas heaters and ovens, you will also need to extinguish the pilot light. There should be instructions on the appliance for where to find this valve.
If you have any candles, oil burners or naked flames burning, blow these out.
Open as many windows and doors as possible, take your phone and go outside.
