Gas Lines

Gas Line Services in Boerne

Natural gas is used in most Texas homes, but some homeowners may not be aware of the dangers natural gas can pose if not maintained properly. Though it may be a surprise to some, plumbers are actually the people who maintain, repair and install gas lines in your home! KCA Services is dedicated to ensuring your safety and knowledge with natural gas in the home.

The Dangers of Natural Gas

Natural gas is dangerous because of the effects it can have on people. There are three main dangers to be cautious of when natural gas leaks:

  • Oxygen Levels – When seeping into the air, natural gas replaces oxygen, lowering the oxygen levels. The less oxygen that is available to breathe, the more symptoms people will show – including headaches, dizziness, fatigue and nausea. 
  • Carbon Monoxide – One of the main uses of natural gas in powering appliances is to create heat. In doing so, carbon monoxide is produced. The effects of carbon monoxide in the home are similar to natural gas and can be fatal if unrecognized. 
  • Explosions – The last danger is a risk of a flash fire or explosion. High levels of natural gas are highly sensitive to any electrical current or source of ignition. A simple phone call could cause an explosive reaction.

Recognizing a Gas Leak

Identifying a gas leak as soon as possible is very important. Having carbon monoxide or natural gas detectors in the home and being very aware of your senses can make all the difference. Most natural gas leaks smell like rotten eggs. If you smell gas in your home: do not attempt to find the leak and do not call 911 from inside your home!

Immediately leave the area and make the call to Boerne emergency plumbing services or 911 from there. Do not underestimate the danger of natural gas. Any electrical activity can set off an explosion – especially when you don’t know the severity of the leak!

To be clear, burning natural gas in the home is a safe and common practice, as long as safety standards are met. However, it’s best to take precautions in case of an emergency and to be aware, even if gas leaks are not common! Plumbing services such as KCA Services can provide a team of trusted professionals to inspect and repair your gas lines to ensure the highest safety for your home.

Boerne Gas Line Inspection

The best way to combat potential gas leaks is to schedule gas line inspections. In some instances, inspections are even required in Boerne. For example, renovating or adding on to your home, selling your home or adding gas appliances to your home often require gas line inspections.

During inspections, licensed plumbers, who are trained in leak detection, have the chance to identify any corrosion, damage and future leak risks before they happen. They can also ensure your gas appliances are all hooked up to natural gas lines properly to avoid a leak risk at the connections.

Gas Line Repair

If your gas lines do leak or need other repairs, a professional plumber must be connected to make the repairs. This is definitely a job that Boerne homeowners cannot attempt on their own! It is very important to ensure a licensed professional analyzes and fix problems in your gas lines. KCA Services can provide a natural gas line inspection and provide any needed gas line repair. In addition, we’re able to install new fittings or new lines as needed.
