Signs of Gas Leaks
Higher than normal gas bills are a good sign that you’re facing a gas leak, but it’s not the only sign. If you smell rotten eggs or hear a whistling sign near a gas line, you probably have a leak. Prolonged exposure to natural gas can also cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, and other physical symptoms.
Can You Smell Your Gas Leak?
Sulfur is added to natural gas to make it easier to notice gas leaks, but sometimes that’s not enough. A small gas leak can be hard to smell, or if mixed with other smells in your home it may be completely undetectable. A gas line leak in a crawlspace, basement, or a place that isn’t accessed often is dangerously easy to overlook as the gas builds up.
