A Plumber Can Fix Gas Lines?

Calling a plumber might not be your first thought when you smell gas. Not every plumber can do the job. Don’t expect an apprentice or general contractor to be ready to handle the task. Check the plumber’s qualifications; they must have a California C-36 Plumbing Contractor license to work with gas lines. This means they are properly trained to fix a gas leak in your home. Working with a trained plumber will yield the following benefits:

Signs You Need a Plumber to Fix a Gas Leak

A gas leak can come from a hole or break in the line, a damaged fitting, or a connection at an appliance. A defective appliance can leak natural gas as well. Signs of a leak include:

What to Do When There’s a Gas Leak

If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs, immediately turn off the gas meter. Don’t use any appliances, electronics, or devices in your home, or use matches or a lighter. Gas accumulated anywhere in your home can ignite and cause an explosion. Get everyone out of the house, including adults, children, and pets; then turn off the gas at the meter, if you can, and call an emergency plumber (or 911 and the gas company if the odor is particularly strong). Never risk trying to find and fix the problem yourself.

Any gas system issue from the meter into a home is the homeowner’s responsibility to fix. If the problem appears to be along the line before it reaches the meter, the gas company must repair it.

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had NexGen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, NexGen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend NexGen.
