What to Do in the Event of an Emergency Gas Leak

Natural gas is a cleaner, versatile, and more reliable alternative to other fossil fuels. It’s also a more environmentally friendly and affordable option. With over 76 million consumers across residential, commercial, and industrial applications, gas is one of the most popular sources of energy in the country.

While natural gas may have a whole host of benefits, there’s still a chance that a natural gas leak could occur, especially if your gas line hasn’t been installed properly or if you have faulty or corroded seals for your gas-powered appliances

Signs of a Natural Gas Leak

When dealing with a gas leak at home, there are some signs that can help you detect such occurrences. At home, you may notice:

  • A foul odor that smells like sulfur or rotten eggs
  • A hissing or whistling sound
  • Disturbances, such as a buildup of dust around your gas-powered appliances
  • An unusual increase in your gas bills. 

Moreover, gas leaks can cause physical symptoms, such as:

  • Breathing difficulties
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Chest pain
  • Ringing in the ears

If you have pets at home, they may experience symptoms, such as:

  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Lethargy
  • In extreme cases, high levels of leaking may cause unconsciousness or death in animals.

What NOT to Do in the Event of a Gas Leak

In case you have or suspect that you’re having a natural gas emergency at home, you should NEVER:

  • Touch or use anything that might cause a spark, such as your phone, lighter, or matches.
  • Switch your lights or appliances on or off.
  • Use your phone while inside your home
  • Attempt to find or repair the leak on your own
  • Remove any plug from outlets

What to Do in the Event of a Gas Leak in the House
