From stoves, water heaters, furnaces, fireplace and outdoor barbecues, when installed and used properly, natural gas is not only safe but convenient. According to the American Gas Association, over 73 million residential, commercial, and industrial premises in the United States use natural gas. As safe and widely used as natural gas is, it is not without potential dangers. It is highly flammable, and gas leaks increase the risk of fires and explosions.
HOW CAN I TELL IF THERE IS A GAS LEAK?
There are a few things that can help you identify if you have a gas leak. Although a strong smell of sulfur or rotten eggs is what people associate when suspecting a gas leak, not every gas leak has a strong odor. A hissing or whistling sound heard near a gas line can be a sign of a gas leak. You can also identify a gas leak if there is white cloud or dust cloud around a gas line.
A high gas bill can be a sign of a potential gas leak in your home. Pay close attention to sudden unaccounted spikes in your gas bill. Even the smallest gas leak can attribute to a noticeable difference on your gas bill.

When the company my HWA scheduled to do the repairs failed to show, I called Option One and Nick was there in 20 minutes. He was explained the evaluation process and provided a detailed inspection report of what needed to be repaired. I was offered multiple payment option including financing. I would highly recommend Option One."
"Got to meet Jeff and his assistant today from Option One Plumbing. We has a gas leak that was caused by a poor installation prior to our home purchase. It had caused our home to be tagged by the gas company. It took a few hours to replace all of the pipes and fittings to code before cleaning up the area and making sure that all was in proper working order. Genuine people."
