Gas Lines Can Be Dangerous
Chances are good that several appliances in your home rely on natural gas. Your stove, oven, furnace, barbecue, and water heater are the most common uses, but they’re not alone.
If you detect a rotten egg smell near any of these appliances, chances are good that you have a gas leak. Natural gas is totally odorless in its natural state, but the utility companies add mercaptan to give the gas its distinctive smell, so you’ll quickly know if there’s a leak. If you have a gas leak, leave the area immediately and call the professionals at My Plumber CA. Even the flicking of a light switch can provide enough of a spark to ignite a natural gas cloud.
What are the consequences of gas leaks?
A small natural gas leak often goes unnoticed for a long time and can cause serious health problems. The first signs of natural gas exposure are due to the Mercaptan. This nerve toxin causes prolonged headaches, nausea, dizziness, short term memory issues and confusion. These symptoms are often misconstrued as signs of the flu. As exposure becomes greater, breathing difficulty can occur and the lack of oxygen can lead to seizures. If the exposure continues for a long period of time it may lead to epilepsy, pneumonia, memory loss, depression, claustrophobia and heart problems.
What causes gas leaks?
Gas leaks are usually caused by poorly sealed gas line connections or frayed delivery lines. Not using a yellow Teflon gas sealing tape on the threaded portion of the coupling can result in slow leak. Damage to dryer lines happens when the dryer is not on a level surface and shakes during use. After an extended period of time the rubbing of the line against the metal connectors can result in a leak.
