Jim's Air Conditioning is your gas leak detection specialist

Gas leaks are a serious hazard and need to be handled immediately by a licensed professional. The experts at Jim's Air Conditioning are available 24/7 to help and can be on site within an hour* of your call.

Gas Leak Dangers

Natural gas is a fantastic fuel option for your home's heating unit. It is highly economical and can cost only a third of what an electrical heating system might cost you per year.

However, while gas has many great benefits, it can also be very dangerous if not handled carefully. Natural gas is incredibly flammable, and lengthy exposure to the gas can lead to serious health complications including gas poisoning.

Potential gas leaks are not the time to be laid back. If you're even mildly suspicious of a leak, call a trained professional straight away. At Jim's Air Conditioning, we have a team of fully qualified and licensed gas fitters for your use.

We're available around the clock and won't charge crazy fees for after hours work. You'll pay the same great rates whenever you book!

Signs of a Gas Leak

Gas is a naturally odourless substance. This may sound alarming, but don't worry. The gas in your home has been combined with a strong chemical odorant that smells like rotten eggs.

This scent is added to help you detect when gas is present, which in turn will alert you of a potential leak. It is always better to be safe than sorry, so if you think you smell gas contact a professional straight away.

In addition to the unpleasant smell, there are several other factors that could indicate gas leaking in your home. These include:

  • Significantly higher gas bills than you normally receive
  • High pitched whistling or hissing noises coming from your gas appliances
  • The gas pilot light in your appliance either keep extinguishing or it changes colour
  • You or someone in your house is feeling nauseous or dizzy without explanation

Gas leaks are highly dangerous and can put both you and your home at serious risk. If you smell gas or suspect a leak in your home contact Jim's Air Conditioning at any time, on any day. We can have an expert at your home to help within an hour* of your call.

Our team is available at all hours of the day, on every day of the week. We won't make you wait around and put your safety at risk. Our team of experts can be at your house whenever you need us and so can be on site in under 60 minutes*.

Gas leaks are always emergency situations. They need to be tended to carefully, and by a licensed professional. If you ever suspect a leak from your gas appliances, contact Jim's Air Conditioning immediately for assistance.

I Have a Gas Leak. What You Should Do?

Leaking gas in your home can be incredibly dangerous. If you smell gas, it is important that you call a licensed gas fitter immediately for help with the emergency. The experts at Jim's Air Conditioning are fully qualified and trained to provide safe long term solutions to keep you and your home safe.

Once you have identified potential gas leakage and are waiting for your Jim's Air Conditioning technician to arrive, there are a few essential steps you should take. First things first, turn your gas off at the meter.

To do this, find the gas handle and turn it so that it sits at a right angle to the pipe. The handle should be easy to spot, as they are always found with the gas meter and are usually bright yellow.

There are several more things you should do next, including:

  • Ventilate your home as much as possible by opening up all doors and windows
  • Refrain from using any electrical appliances in your home, including light switches
  • Do not use fan appliances to help with ventilating the area
  • Never use an open flame of any kind
  • Do not turn a torch on or use a telephone near where you suspect the leak
  • Remove yourself from the danger and go outside to a well-ventilated area

Gas Leak Detection

Our team at Jim's Air Conditioning are all extensively trained in natural gas fitting. All of our experts have the necessary qualifications and licensing to seek out a gas leak on your property, isolate the issue, and recommend the best solution to keep you safe.

An absolute must-have tool for detecting natural gas leaks is a manometer. These handy devices can detect pressure drops in your home. Once the manometer has determined a gas presence, your technician will get to work pinpointing the cause and location.

At this point, your technician will isolate all of your gas appliances and any length of pipe in your home. Next, the manometer will again be used to test all isolated appliances. The aim here is to identify where the pressure drop is coming from. Once your technician has isolated the suspected area, they'll check over any pipe lengths or appliances in that section to see which one is leaking.

After the leak has been found and repairs have been made, your technician will do a final check over with the manometer. They'll make absolutely sure that no more pressure drops can be found, before finishing up their work.

This will give you peace of mind that your house is once again a safe space.

Gas Leak Repair Cost

At Jim's Air Conditioning, we know gas leaks just can't be slept on until your budget has room for repair service. Emergency situations like this need immediate attention, but these unexpected service fees can sometimes put a big strain on your wallet.

Thankfully, Jim's Air Conditioning has the solution for you! We offer a range of interest free payment plans** so that you never have to put your own safety on the back burner.

These plans are designed to suit you. They don't require any upfront payment, and can be repaid in either weekly or fortnightly instalments! Your gas fitting expert can set you up on site and have you approved within minutes.

Don't add money stress to your worries when your safety is at risk! Call Jim's Air Conditioning 24/7 for any gas leak concerns.

Gas Leaks FAQs

Always be vigilant when you're using a gas heater at home.

A suspected gas leak should be reported immediately once you have identified it. Signs of a potential gas leak include smelling gas, feeling dizzy or nauseous, high pitched whistling from your gas appliance, the gas pilot light keeps extinguishing, or significantly higher gas bills than you normally receive.

Gas is naturally odourless. However, to alert people of a leak, utility companies add a strong smelling substance to the gas in your home. This substance smells like rotten eggs, so that you can be immediately alerted when a leak is present.

Direct exposure to leaking gas in an enclosed space can cause oxygen deprivation in the air. This can cause headaches, fatigue, impaired vision, loss of breath, and even unconsciousness. If you suspect a gas leak, make sure you open all the doors and windows and go to a well ventilated area away from the leak.
