What Causes Gas Leak

How Do I Know I Have a Leak?

There are several signs you may have a gas leak in your home. It is wise never to ignore a potential gas leak as the consequences could be dire:

  • The smell of rotten eggs – Natural gas is odourless, but suppliers add an odorant to the gas before it goes to consumers. The purpose of the addition is to help detect and smell gas leaks.
  • You may hear a hissing noise coming from an appliance
  • You notice yellow, red, or orange gas flames – These are usually seen when using the burners on a gas stove top. However, this does not guarantee you have a gas leak. If a burner needs cleaning, red, yellow, or orange flames are often present.
