If you think you may have a gas leak, evacuate your home and call 911 immediately.
Signs of a gas leak can include the following:
- The aroma of sulfur or “rotten eggs”
- Hissing or blowing sounds from appliances connected to the gas line, i.e. gas stoves, or sounds from the gas source itself
- Dead or faded grass, plants or other vegetation
- People in the house experiencing symptoms such as dizziness, nausea or fatigue
If you are encountering any of these signs and are thinking they are related to a gas leak, get out of your home and call 911 immediately, followed by your utility company.

Gas Leak and Carbon Monoxide Safety
As noted before, the first thing you need to do if you are worried about a gas leak is leave your home and then call 911 right away. After emergency responders are headed your way, get ahold of your utility company.
Once the emergency responders and utility company have made certain there is no danger, call Neal Harris Service Experts to schedule a gas line repair, installation or replacement.
Poisonous gases, including natural gas and carbon monoxide, ought to be taken very seriously. Be sure you have carbon monoxide detectors installed in your home and call 911 right away if you’re ever nervous about a gas leak or carbon monoxide in your home. Unlike natural gas, carbon monoxide does not have an odor and can’t be easily detected. The EPA recommends a few steps to decrease exposure to carbon monoxide:
- Keep gas appliances properly adjusted.
- Install and take advantage of an exhaust fan vented to outdoors over gas stoves.
- Open flues when fireplaces are in use.
- Have a well-versed professional inspect, clean and tune up your central heating systems (including furnaces, flues and chimneys) annually and repair any leaks promptly.
