The gas line is one of your home’s most valuable sources of energy, but also can pose risks if not managed carefully. If you have a gas leak or suspect one of your gas lines might have been damaged, it’s essential to act quickly.

Methanethiol, or methyl mercaptan, is a chemical with a strong sulphur odour that is added to natural gas so it can be easily detected if there is a leak. If you smell a rotten egg odour, vacate the area immediately and call 911. If you are indoors, open windows and doors as you leave the building. Do not turn on any power sources or ignite flames as it poses a fire or explosion risk. After you have contacted 911, call the emergency line for your natural gas provider and follow their instructions.

After a leak has been identified and the gas has been switched off in your home, you can hire a gasfitter to make the necessary repairs. The 180 Plumbing & Heating team can help you with this, our team has extensive training and expertise in all code-compliant gas line repairs. We offer safe and effective high-quality gas system repairs. Contact us today for a quote.

Gas Repairs

Home Renovations

When doing any kind of renovations with gas appliances present, it is important to ensure that you and your renovators are aware of the presence of all gas lines to ensure proper precautions are taken not to damage the lines. If you are remodelling your kitchen, living room, or basement and you’re looking to relocate or install a gas-powered appliance, our team can ensure your gas lines are relocated safely and your gas appliances are connected properly.

Backyard Renovations

Underground gas lines are a great solution for delivering gas to backyard and garage amenities. These lines only pose a risk if they are damaged by not observing safe clearances around the lines. Typically, it’s recommended to leave 2 meters of clearance around your gas lines to prevent any possibility of damaging the line. The most common need for residential gas line repairs arises with backyard landscaping or renovations that require digging work. If you’re digging deep into the ground, such as digging fence posts, a pool, planting a tree, etc, get your yard surveyed to locate all of the utilities in your yard before digging. Scheduling a survey will not cost anything, but if you cause a gas leak, the consequences can be dangerous and expensive.

Inexperienced Technicians

One of the most dangerous situations with natural gas is due to inexperienced, unlicenced people working on gas lines. Even seaming simple repairs or installations should not be completed by anyone other than a certified gasfitter. The 180 Plumbing & Heating team is fully certified and have years of experience working with gas lines. You can trust our team to complete your home projects safely and efficiently.

Oxygen Deprivation & Carbon Monoxide Concerns

In addition to the risk of flammability and explosions, there are two other health-related risks when using natural gas. When natural gas leaks occur within an enclosed area, there is a danger of oxygen deprivation to anyone in the area caused by the buildup of natural gas displacing the oxygen. When natural gas is burned in an area without sufficient amounts of oxygen, carbon monoxide poisoning is of concern. Both of these concerns can be managed by ensuring that your natural gas appliances and gas lines are in good working condition through regular maintenance.

You can also take these additional precautions in your home:

  • Install carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Ensure your gas stove has an outdoor-ventilated exhaust fan.
  • When using a fireplace, be sure to have a properly vented chimney.
  • Have your central heating systems checked, cleaned, and tuned annually.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why shouldn’t I try to fix gas leaks myself?2022-10-20T01:42:49-06:00

Gas leaks can cause severe injuries or death if not handled properly. Only a licensed plumber and gasfitter should be performing repairs or installations involving gas lines or gas appliances.

How can I prepare for a gas leak emergency?2022-10-20T01:43:38-06:00

A great step to take in preparing yourself and your family for a gas leak emergency is knowing where your gas shut-off valve is. If you have a gas leak or suspect one, turn off the gas line valve immediately and then vacate the area and call for help. In most Calgary homes, the shut-off value can be found where the gas line enters your home, it’s often located near your gas meter.

What are the signs that I should have a gas line repaired?2022-10-20T01:44:46-06:00

It’s a good practice to keep an eye out for these indicators that you may need to have your gas lines repaired. 

  • Hissing sounds emanating from the gas line.
  • A rotten egg smell around your gas appliances or gas lines. Natural gas is technically an odourless gas, but chemicals are added to make the gas easier to detect. If you’re able to smell natural gas, there’s a leak somewhere in the lines.
  • Problems with the functionality of your gas equipment.
  • Unexplainable changes in your gas usage are reported on your utility bills.
How much does it cost to repair a gas line?2022-10-20T01:45:42-06:00

I hired Desmond to locate and repair a major water leak at our newly purchased townhouse in Palliser. Desmond was punctual, quickly located the problem and sent me an accurate quote for the repair cost. The repair was done perfectly and for the price quoted. He even found time to properly level the toilet and clean out the shower drain at no extra cost. Oustanding service!
