How to Spot the Signs Of a Gas Leak

“If the smell is strong and you are having a hard time breathing, leave your home as quickly as possible. If you live in an apartment building or near other homes, alert your neighbors so they can leave too. Then call 911 (or your local emergency number) and your gas company immediately to report the leak.”

More than 65 million homes in the U.S. use natural gas for their stoves, water heaters, and other appliances. Natural gas is one of the safest and cleanest fossil fuels. It is also better for the environment as it produces mostly water vapor and carbon dioxide and significantly fewer greenhouse emissions than burning oil, coal, or wood.
Natural gas is highly combustible, meaning it can produce a lot of heat when you burn small amounts. Thus, a natural gas leak can increase the risk of a fire and explosion since it spreads quickly and goes up in flame easily. If you have a leak in the house, an electrical spark or fire source can ignite the combustion.
