Gas Leak Detection FAQ
Where should a gas leak detector be placed in the home?
The best place to install a gas leak detector in your home depends on the type and density of the gas you want to detect. For natural gas, which is lighter than air, you should place the detector near the ceiling or roof, where the gas may accumulate. For carbon monoxide, which has a similar density to air, you should place the detector at eye level or higher. Our experts access your property and place detectors in the best place possible.
Why is early gas detection or high CO2 levels so important?
Early detection of gas or high CO2 levels is essential because both gases can pose severe health and safety risks if they accumulate in your home. Gas leaks can cause explosions, fires, and asphyxiation, while high CO2 levels can cause headaches, drowsiness, nausea, and even death.
Gas leaks can occur due to faulty appliances, pipes, or valves that release gas into the air. A rotten egg smell, a hissing sound, or dead plants near the gas source can detect gas leaks. However, some gas leaks may be too small or too far away to be noticed by these signs. Therefore, installing a gas leak detector that can alert you with an alarm when the gas concentration reaches a dangerous level is advisable.
