Newark Gas Line Services
Providing Convenient Gas Line Services Since 1995
When you opt for natural gas appliances, your property is outfitted with gas lines from the underground source connected directly to those appliances. Natural gas is the most common form of gas used in residential and commercial structures. An intricate underground piping system supplies natural gas to homes from utility companies.
Gas lines begin to age over time, which causes problems for home and business owners. Various problems can stem from aging gas lines, but the most dangerous problem is natural gas leaks. Leaking natural gas is very dangerous and can be both toxic and explosive if not handled immediately.
Causes of Gas Line Issues
- Old or Worn Piping
- Trapped Gas Pressure
- Invading Tree Roots
- Severe Weather
- Accidental Rupture from Digging
Newark Gas Line Repairs & Replacements
Repairing a gas line first requires determining the source of the problem. Also, gas line leaks can happen when the natural gas hose is pinched. Natural gas would be very difficult to detect if not for the element added to the invisible energy source to help homeowners know a leak is present.
Gas leaks can lead to health issues. Shortness of breath, headaches, and nausea are common signs you may have a gas leak or prolonged exposure to natural gas. There are other signs of a gas leak not related to health issues. If you’ve seen or heard any of the following, you should contact National Plumbing & Heating Inc. immediately.
Signs of a Gas Leak

While waiting for our service agents to arrive at your home to inspect your plumbing, you can start by turning the gas supply off. Each appliance with a gas connection would need to be closed, and if the problem requires a longer repair, your home’s main supply line would need to be turned off, too. The main line needs to be turned off by a licensed plumber.
