Gas Leaks can be many things, but generally are not welcome. If you smell the “rotten egg” odor (some can’t pick up the smell) of a gas leak or otherwise suspect one in your home, you should get out and call your provider ASAP. Sometimes they go unnoticed by homeowners, which is why in assessing homes, our advisors find up to ½ of them contain gas leaks, and we’ve been in a lot of homes.
PG&E a California utility where we have a number of locations, such as Allbritten in Fresno, ABC in Hayward, Residential Energy Pro’s in San Jose, Young’s Air in Los Banos and Gundlach’s in Bakersfield, has invested in a number of cars with sensitive gas sampling equipment to test lines that run through local neighborhoods. They have amazing detection abilities, like our advisors!
While we won’t be driving hybrid cars with fancy pipes stuck on the top trough your living room, rest assured that the sensitive equipment we bring inside works quite well and so do our advisers. It’s part of the health and safety testing we perform. If there’s one tiny leak or a bigger issue we’ll take care of it, it is all part of making sure your home is not only energy efficient but safe too.
