Common Symptoms of a Gas Leak
Gas leaks can be dangerous -- even deadly -- so it’s important to know what symptoms to watch for so you can seek professional help immediately. Some signs can include an odor around your home that smells like rotten eggs or noises around your gas lines that sound like hissing. You should also watch for dying plants or vegetation around your home, and excess condensation on the windows. Inspect the areas around your appliances and grill for any damage to the gas line. You should also be alert to any potential health issues like feeling dizzy, light-headed, or nauseous. If you or anyone in your family notice any of these signs you should call Bryco Plumbing immediately to have an experienced professional inspect the issue.
