What To Do In A Plumbing Or Gas Emergency
Natural gas is odourless, but FortisBC adds trace amounts of an odorant called mercaptan to alert you to a gas leak. Mercaptan smells like rotten eggs, so if you suddenly notice this smell, shut off your gas meter, head outside and open the doors and windows on your way out. Do not operate any electrical switches or create a source of ignition. Immediately contact Veridis Plumbing & Heating or Fortis BC and wait outside for your dedicated service professional to arrive.
If you’re dealing with a water leak, turn off the water and wait for your plumber to arrive.
Natural Gas Meter Safety
Natural gas leaks are extremely rare, but it’s important to be prepared in case of emergency. Make sure to locate your natural gas meter and keep the area around it clear so that it can be easily accessed when it’s most important. While the pungent odor of mercaptan is the most common and easily identifiable sign of a gas leak, you might also notice a hissing sound coming from a natural gas appliance.
Regular maintenance of natural gas appliances like furnaces, boilers, fireplaces and water heaters is essential to keep things running safely and efficiently. A certified gas fitter at Veridis Plumbing & Heating can inspect and service all of your gas appliances, as well as your gas lines, to ensure everything is operating as it should be.
