Natural gas is a clean and efficient fuel source that’s used in more than half of all the homes in America for cooking and heating. Natural gas lines and the appliances that use them are mostly safe in your home, but if there are any problems with your gas line, it can be an extremely dangerous situation.
Our Big Bear gas line repair specialists know how dangerous the risks of any problems with the gas in your home can be, so we take these repairs very seriously. Any problems with your natural gas could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, and even the smallest of leaks can lead to disastrous explosions.
If there are any gas-burning appliances in your home that aren’t burning gas properly, or if your gas line itself is damaged in any way, it’s very likely that someone in your home will experience carbon monoxide poisoning. So any Big Bear gas line repairs need to be made as soon as possible. Carbon monoxide prevents the brain and other organs from receiving and using the oxygen they need in order to function properly, so this can be incredibly dangerous. The symptoms may be similar to those of a high fever or the flue.
Victims may experience the following symptoms:
If a member of your household experiences any of these symptoms, immediately leave your house and call 911, the fire department, or emergency medical services.
Since the risks are so high, always make sure you leave any gas line repairs, maintenance, or installation to a professional Big Bear gas line specialist. You should have an inspection of any natural gas lines and gas burning appliances at least once a year to ensure your home’s safety. Our professional Big Bear gas line repair specialists can help easily prevent gas leaks in your home. We’ll make sure that there are no problems with an annual inspection of your flexible gas lines, and we’ll make sure that all gas lines are properly installed.
