How to Know You Have a Gas Emergency?
When you smell gas, it’s important to take immediate action. If the odor is mild – usually a rotten egg smell – open up your windows, turn off pilot lights, call emergency authorities or your local gas utility and leave your home. If the gas leak smells strong, you should immediately exit your building and call the authorities from outside your home. Don’t do anything else such as lighting a match, flicking your Bic, using an elevator or turning any appliances on or off. Any open flame or electric spark could ignite the gas and cause an explosive reaction.
Natural gas – when used safely – is an inexpensive fuel that’s abundant in the United States, which is the world’s leading producer of natural gas. About 90 percent of homeowners prefer natural gas over other energy sources. Our services make it safe and convenient to use propane or natural gas. Our signature services include:
Gas Leak Repair
Gas leak repair is one of the most important – and most urgent – services that we offer. Leaks can cause health emergencies and catastrophic disasters unless promptly repaired.
Williams & Fogg Mechanical Services will provide 24 hour emergency service, repairs and reassurance when you suspect a gas leak. In most cases we can repair leaks quickly.
We recommend regular maintenance and gas pressure testing to prevent leaks from ever occurring. Our emergency technicians can help to safeguard your home and family, keep your system running at peak efficiency and remove any risks of further leaks.
Maintenance, Repairs, Part Installations and Inspections
Aging gas systems can threaten the safety and health of your family because leaks in the lines could generate severe danger. A proper installation is important, but existing lines can always spring leaks. Our gas line service is quick and efficient, and we work hard to maintain a calm and professional atmosphere.
Gas Pressure Test
It’s important to get periodic inspections and gas pressure testing by a certified gasfitter who can not only conduct a gas pressure test but also inspect your system for weaknesses.
Time, weather and other influences erode your pipes and systems. Service can provide peace of mind and help to ensure that your system runs optimally for as long as possible. Our gas line repair service includes:
Replacing Worn Parts
We can replace cracked, old and dried-out seals and valves. Our gas line replacement services include sections of pipe or your entire system
Repairing Faulty Fixtures
We can repair faulty fixtures, controls and unlightable pilot lights. If you can’t get your pilot flame to ignite, we can troubleshoot the problem.
Replacement Service for Damaged Lines
We repair and replace damaged lines, and we can track your lines using the latest technology. Sometimes, it’s difficult to excavate gas lines, but our experts have years of experience locating leaks and maintaining natural gas systems.
Inspecting and Repairing Gas Systems After Physical Damage
Weather events, accidents, earthquakes and physical altercations can result in damage to your gas pipes and controls. We can inspect and repair your system when it is physically damaged. After completing our work, we’ll always conduct a gas line pressure test to confirm a successful repair.
Performing Our Gas Leak Locate Service
Finding undetected leaks off your property is important because you might not smell underground leaks. We have the tools to inspect your pipes remotely.
Venting Repairs and Inspections
When you use gas heat, you need to vent your furnace to remove dangerous gases like carbon monoxide from your home. We inspect and repair venting systems that keep your family safe. Gas stoves and other equipment also need venting.
Installing Piping for Special Systems
We can install gas pipe for your pool, spa, water heater, fireplace, log inserts and other gas systems.
Checking Appliances for Leaks
Small leaks in gas- or propane-powered appliances can remain undetected. These appliances are often located in out-of-the-way areas, and a small leak can be overlooked for a time. Even small amounts of natural gas, which rises to fill the space in a room, can generate breathing problems or suffocation. We’ll check your appliances for proper operation.
Installing New Appliances
Regardless of whether you’re changing to or from a gas system or installing or removing a gas-powered appliance, you should get a professional installation. There are many safety risks when installing appliances that use gas, and our professional technicians install appliances properly by following all the applicable regulations and best practices.
Gas Line Installation Services
Williams & Fogg Mechanical Services will install the infrastructure for your gas system including rigid lines and flexible lines for appliances.
We also offer service to relocate your gas lines when you want to move appliances within your home or business. If you’re building a new home, installing gas service for the first time or upgrading your service, new lines are necessary.
The costs of gas line installation vary depending on the distance to your gas connection, the type of gas you’re using, whether you’re using gas for multiple purposes and the environmental conditions such as rocky soil, streams crossing your property, etc. The average cost ranges from a low of $256 to $1,350. Commercial systems may cost more because of local fire and safety regulations. You should budget $15 to $25 per linear foot on any gas line installation project. Adding gas-powered dryers, water heaters and other appliances will probably require additional linear feet of lines even if you already use gas.
