Suspect a gas leak?
A gas leak can pose a potential danger to those in your household. If you can smell gas:
- Try to find the source of the smell. Look at your stove gas burner, other gas appliances or the piping near your gas meter.
- If you cannot identify the source or it is coming from an appliance that is turned off, switch the natural gas handle on your meter to the off position.
- Open your windows for better ventilation. Check that stove burners, naked flames, and pilot lights are off. Finally, turn off your electricity at the fuse box.
- From outside the house, call your local licensed plumber or gas fitter. If you are renting, call your real estate agent.
