Important Safety Reminder about Natural Gas Leaks
- HVAC, Information, News, Safety
There are certain things tasks around the house that homeowners can safely tackle—but then there are times when a professional should be called. Anytime you’re working on a project that requires contact with natural gas lines, please use a registered and licensed contractor.
Earlier in the spring, there was a close call for a Tecumseh family. Instead of hiring a Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) certified contractor, a relative installed a new barbecue valve that was the source of an overnight gas leak. When the leak was discovered, natural gas levels in the house were dangerously high and there was a risk of explosion.
Thankfully no one was hurt, but it’s a sobering reminder about the importance of hiring a registered contractor when dealing with natural gas and other potential hazards. Licensed technicians have the training to handle potentially hazardous materials and know to safety service or repair the systems that use them.
|As we get ready for the hottest part the summer, remember that the refrigerant in your cooling system can be hazardous and should only be handled by a certified professional. If you notice a refrigerant leak, please call a reputable heating and cooling company as soon as possible and never try to fix your AC system or top up refrigerant.|
There’s a reason why certified technicians have to undergo extensive training to work with natural gas and refrigerants. Make sure to call a professional for work involving potentially hazardous materials.
