Test for Gas Leaks

By | July 14, 2011

In the news to day we read about a home located roughly 40 miles north of Albany, NY near the Vermont border exploding… possibly because of a leaking or faulty gas line or valve in the home. At the time we read the article three people had died and several others, including a baby, had sustained injuries.

The article mentioned that the occupants of the house may have complained to the landlord about a gas leak earlier that day. We would HATE to have that person’s conscience right now, that’s for sure!

Moral of the story

If you own property(ies) and have any reason to suspect that a gas line, valve or gas powered appliance such as a furnace, stove, washer, dryer, or even gas heating log in a fake fireplace may have a leak, don’t waste one red second checking it out thoroughly yourself with a device like the CD200 Combustible Gas Leak Detector or, better yet, having a service professional come out and investigate — and most likely he or she will have a device as good or better than the CD200 Combustible Gas Leak Detector.
