Signs It’s Time to Repair Your Gas Line
Regular maintenance is crucial in preventing gas line emergencies. However, a number of factors can incite premature gas line repair, from external damage (tree root disturbance, shifting soil, extreme weather) to corrosion due to poor maintenance.
Make sure your household members are aware of problem signs related to gas lines and gas leaks:
- Persistent rotten egg smell
- Hissing sounds coming from the gas line
- Dying house plants
- Dead or dying vegetation in your yard
- Higher-than-usual gas bills
- Damage to gas appliances
Your Manhattan gas line repair experts from Taylor Group can diagnose the problem and provide you with the right solution. We have the experience and equipment to handle any level of gas line complications and will have your gas heating system running normally as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Note: If you have a gas leak in your home, evacuate immediately. Don’t use your cell phone in your home. Get to a safe place and call either 911 or your local gas company to report the leak and get it under control.
Thinking of Converting from Oil to Gas?
You probably know that natural gas is a much more economical alternative to oil heating, which can be as much as 50% costlier than gas heating. Since gas produces fewer carbon emissions, it’s also a greener option for eco-conscious homeowners.
The oil to gas conversion process will differ for homeowners with existing (but unused) gas lines and those without.
If you have an existing gas line: Contact your local gas utility company to confirm if your gas line is able to handle the amount of heating you require for your home. You will be asked to provide information on your home’s square footage as well any appliances or equipment that currently run on gas. Once the gas company confirms your request, call Taylor Group to begin the oil to gas conversion.
If you need gas line installation: Contact your local gas company to find out if your neighborhood is serviced by a gas line. If it is, a technician from the gas company will come to your home to install the new gas line. Once the installation is complete, contact Taylor Group for the conversion.
Taylor Group makes it easy for homeowners looking to make the switch to natural gas. We offer full-service transitions, from performing the conversion to helping you choose and set up your new gas heating systems (water heaters, boilers, furnaces). Our partnerships with leading brands like A.O. Smith, Rheem, and Weil-McLain provide you with high-quality systems designed for long-term reliability.
