Gas leak detection is an important process that should not be delayed, both for safety and to save money and fossil fuels. A detector is likely to locate the problem and allow a professional to fix it. A pressure test can also be carried out on the line. Indicators that you may require a gas leak detection solution are an energy bill that is either excessive or increasing compared to previous bills, or a faint lingering smell.

If you suspect you have a gas leak that may need fixing, a good way to start detection is to turn off all your appliances at the appliance control including those with a pilot (eg hot water heaters). Take a meter reading in the evening before you go to bed, and then check it again the next morning before you turn the appliances back on. If the meter has changed it would suggest you may require a professional who can locate the problem and find a solution.

A gas leak detection system would be to firstly pressure test the line. A device called a bubble detector can then be used to test your line to and from the meter. It is also possible to check the service with special gas leak detection fluid.
