3 Facts About Your Gas Piping

Natural gas powers the heating systems of over 50% of the homes in this country. Natural gas is also vital in operating many water heaters, clothes dryers, stoves, backup generators, and other appliances. This fuel source is less costly than electricity and is readily available in most homes. While a gas line should be pretty durable, you may occasionally need service from a professional. Please read our guide to learn more about the natural gas running in your home, and call us when you need gas piping service in Pasadena.

1: Natural gas smells terrible for your safety.

You may have heard this before: you can recognize a natural gas leak in the home by the smell of rotten eggs. But as it turns out, this is not always true. Companies only add this rotten egg smell (called mercaptan) to the gas supply so that it is easily detectable when leaking. Not all municipalities do this, but you can always contact your local utility company to be sure. This is an essential service, as a natural gas leak can be deadly and flammable.

2: It’s essential to protect your gas line during an earthquake.

Earthquakes are always possible here in California, and an earthquake can damage your natural gas line. That’s why it’s essential to shut off service to your gas line in case of a big quake to prevent leaking. However, this may not always be easy (and it might not be the first thing on your mind). An earthquake shutoff valve can automatically shut off the gas line when it detects high levels of seismic activity.

3: You don’t have to keep gas appliances in place when you remodel.

Some people believe that the gas stove must stay in place when remodeling a kitchen. However, when you work with a gas piping expert, you can extend your gas line wherever you need it (as long as you have natural gas service running to your home).
