Gas is a reliable and extremely economical fuel source for all of your home or office’s cooking and heating requirements but when using gas we do need to be aware of the dangers associated with this combustible fuel source. Thankfully leaking gas is usually easy to notice mainly due to the smell of the substance. In its natural form gas is actually odourless but the suppliers add a chemical to the fuel to allow it to take on a strong odour, which is usually referred to as a sulphuric rotten egg smell, to help alert the public to a gas leak. But there are some circumstances in which this indicator can go unnoticed so it is wise to also keep a look out for other signs that there may be leaking gas on your property;
Higher Than Average Gas Bills
