Staying Safe around Natural Gas
Natural Gas Safety Tips from AngiesList:
• Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when setting the temperature on your gas water heater. The maximum temperature should generally be set between 110 and 120 degrees to prevent burns or scalding. Use extreme caution when installing a water heater, or call a professional.
• If you use a gas fireplace or gas logs, make sure you keep the chimney damper open. Even with gas fireplaces, make sure your chimney is adequately maintained and free from obstructions. If the fireplace features a key-operated valve, remove the key when the fireplace is not in use.
• If your clothes dryer uses gas, periodically check the lint trap and dryer vent to ensure both are clear from obstructions.
• Ask a qualified HVAC technician to check your heating system at least once a year. A technician should not only make sure the system is operating properly and efficiently, they should check for proper combustion and venting of exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide.
• Install a carbon monoxide alarm. If not installed or maintained properly, gas appliances can create dangerous buildups of carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas. You can purchase a carbon monoxide detector for as little as $20. Many municipalities, utilities and fire departments also offer carbon monoxide detectors free of charge.
• Never store flammable liquids, such as paint thinners or gasoline, near gas appliances.
• Never store combustible materials, such as rags, paper or cardboard, near gas appliances.
• Never attempt to reroute or divert natural gas lines yourself.
• When building new structures on your property, such as home additions, sheds, garages or other outbuildings, call 811 before you dig or build to ensure the structure is not built on top of a gas line.
• Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and maintenance guidelines when installing natural gas appliances. Use only qualified technicians for repairs.
• If a flood, earthquake or other catastrophic event damages your home, always check for the odor of gas. If detected, call your local gas utility or fire department.
• Never use natural gas pipes to store clothing or other items. Hanging clothes or other objects from pipes near the ceiling, such as in a basement for example, creates an additional load on the pipe that can create leaks at the joints.
• Never allow children to hang or swing from natural gas pipes.
Shut off your gas immediately if you smell gas.
