Gas Line Maintenance Tips and Tricks

At Northside Heating & Air Conditioning, your safety is our top priority. Properly installed and well-maintained gas lines are essential for enjoying the benefits of natural gas and propane gas in your Colville, WA, home or business. Here are some simple yet valuable tips to help you maintain the integrity of your gas lines:

Check Mark.png

Regular Visual Inspections:

  • Conduct a monthly visual inspection of your gas lines, especially around connections and appliances. Look for any signs of damage, corrosion, leaks, or loose fittings.

  • Pay close attention to areas where pipes are exposed or may have been subjected to external stress (e.g., digging, landscaping).

Know the Signs of a Gas Leak:

  • Odor: Natural gas has a distinct odor often described as rotten eggs. While an added scent, this odor serves as an important safety measure.

  • Hissing Sounds: Listen for any hissing sounds near your gas lines or appliances. This could indicate a leak.

  • Dead Houseplants: While there can be other explanations, the unexplained death of houseplants near gas lines might warrant further investigation.

  • Discolored Flames: Gas appliances should have blue flames. Yellow or orange flames could signal incomplete combustion, potentially indicating a gas line issue.

If You Suspect a Gas Leak:

Act Quickly! A gas leak can be a serious threat to your safety. Here's what to do if you suspect a gas leak:

  • Evacuate immediately: Leave the building and ensure everyone gets out safely. Don't waste time trying to find the source of the leak or turn off appliances.

  • Leave the door open: As you leave, open a door or window to help ventilate the building and remove gas buildup.

  • Do not turn on or off switches: This could create a spark and ignite the gas.

  • Call 911 from a safe location: Once you are safely outside, call 911 from a neighbor's phone or a cell phone. Emergency responders are trained to handle gas leaks and will be able to locate the source of the leak and shut off the gas supply.

  • Do not re-enter the building: Wait outside until emergency responders arrive and declare the building safe.

 

Natural gas itself is not toxic, unlike carbon monoxide which is a byproduct of incomplete combustion. The primary dangers of a natural gas leak are:

  • Fire and Explosion: Natural gas is highly flammable and explosive when mixed with air in certain concentrations. Even a small spark can ignite a gas leak, causing a fire or explosion.

  • Suffocation: In higher concentrations, natural gas can displace oxygen in the air, leading to suffocation. This is similar to carbon monoxide poisoning, but caused by the lack of available oxygen rather than the presence of a harmful gas.

Preventative Maintenance:

Regular maintenance and inspections of your gas lines and appliances can help prevent gas leaks. Here are some additional tips:

  • Schedule regular gas line inspections: A qualified technician can inspect your gas lines and appliances for leaks and potential problems.

  • Never ignore the odor of gas: Natural gas has a distinct odor often described as rotten eggs. If you smell gas, it's a sign of a potential leak. Follow the evacuation steps above and call 911 immediately.

  • Keep gas appliances properly maintained: Have qualified technicians service your gas appliances according to the manufacturer's recommendations.

  • Install carbon monoxide detectors: While not a direct indicator of a gas leak, carbon monoxide detectors can provide an extra layer of safety in your home, especially if your gas appliances malfunction.

By understanding the dangers of gas leaks and taking steps to prevent them, you can help keep your home or business safe. If you suspect a gas leak, remember to evacuate immediately, call 911, and wait for emergency responders to arrive.

When it comes to gas lines, safety is paramount. If you have any concerns or questions about your gas lines, don't hesitate to contact Northside Heating & Air Conditioning. We're here to help!

Q: What type of gas line do I need (natural gas or propane)?

A: In Stevens County and surrounding areas, many residents rely on propane for their gas needs. While Northside can install gas lines for natural gas (connected to the city gas line) where available, we understand that propane is a common source of fuel throughout the area. During your free consultation, a Northside technician can assess your specific needs and existing setup to determine whether propane or natural gas (if available in your location) is the most suitable option for your home or business. We are experienced in installing and servicing gas lines for both types of fuel.

Q: How much does gas line installation cost?

A: The cost of gas line installation can vary depending on several factors, including the length of the line needed, the type of gas (natural gas or propane), and any necessary permits. Northside provides transparent quotes upfront, so you'll know exactly what to expect before we begin the project.

Q: What is the permitting process for gas line installation?

A: The permitting process for gas line installation in Stevens County can vary depending on the specifics of your project. Here's a general guideline:

  • Projects Requiring Permits: Any structure that will have plumbing, habitable space (living, sleeping, eating or cooking), and/or will be used commercially or publicly requires a building permit and land-use approvals from the Planning Division.

  • Potential Permit Exceptions: There might be exceptions for residential utility structures that are:

    • Over 200 square feet: These structures likely require a building permit regardless of foundation type.

    • On a permanent foundation (posts in the ground, traditional footings, etc.): These likely require a building permit regardless of size.

  • No Permit Likely Needed: Residential utility structures that are:

    • 200 square feet or less

    • Do not contain plumbing

    • Do not contain habitable space

    • Not on a permanent foundation (no posts in the ground, traditional footings, etc.)

This is a general overview, and specific requirements can vary. To ensure your project complies with local regulations, Northside Heating & Air Conditioning recommends contacting the Stevens County Building Division at (509) 684-8325 for a Site Analysis. This process helps determine if there are any "plat restrictions" requiring permits for all structures on your property.

Q: What about the permitting process for residents outside of Stevens County?

The permitting process for gas line installation can vary depending on your location. Northside Heating & Air Conditioning can help you navigate this process, but to ensure your project adheres to local regulations, we recommend contacting your local building department directly. They can provide specific details on permit requirements for gas line installations in your area.

Here are some resources that can assist you in finding your local building department:

  • National Association of Home Builders (NAHB): This website offers a directory of local homebuilder associations across the country. Many of these associations have links or contact information for local building departments: https://www.nahb.org/

  • International Code Council (ICC): The ICC provides a searchable database of building code officials by zip code: https://www.iccsafe.org/

By contacting your local building department and working with Northside Heating & Air Conditioning, you can ensure a smooth and compliant gas line installation process.
