San Jose Gas Lines
San Jose gas lines are critical aspects of homes, businesses, or other buildings in the area. These pipes carry gas into the building to use in various appliances. Everything from stoves to water heaters and HVAC systems uses this gas as a heat source. While most lines can go long periods without maintenance, it can be complicated knowing if your lines are in that category.
When San Jose gas lines are not correctly maintained, they pose a serious threat to your property and those around it. The moment something goes wrong with a property’s gas lines, property damage, injury, or even death are sure to follow.

Issues Our Customers Experience With Their Gas Lines In San Jose
As you might have guessed, gas lines are pipes that transfer gas, usually natural gas, into your home. Your furnace, water heater, or other appliances then use this gas to generate heat. While generally harmless and extraordinarily useful, gas lines in San Jose have been known to cause serious problems. Among these problems, these four are the most common:
- Hissing Noises: If you notice an unusual hissing noise in your home, it may be the sound of natural gas escaping from your pipes! A leak is the most likely culprit if the sound comes from an area known to have gas lines.
- Rising Utility Bills: A gas leak might be silent, but its effect on your utility bill is always noticeable.
- Gas Leaks: As the gas in your home is very much flammable, a gas leak in your lines could easily result in fires or explosions. While much less severe, gas line leaks also produce an unpleasant smell, not unlike rotten eggs.
- Carbon Monoxide Buildup: As the gas in your home burns, it produces an odorless byproduct known as carbon monoxide. If your ventilation system fails, this gas can flood your home and cause suffocation.
These issues are difficult to identify unless you have the proper equipment. Even more challenging is locating the source of the case. Rather than finding the problem yourself, you should contact one of our professionals who can help you using the latest tools and technology for the job.
San Jose Gas Leak Detection
Most in-home gas leaks are small, so small that they are practically undetectable. Unfortunately, while these leaks may not have a significant impact on your household, you can be sure that they’re causing your utility bills to rise. Luckily, our San Jose gas leak detection service can locate even the most minor leaks using an electronic gas analyzer. These devices can notify us of gas flow and concentration fluctuations that help us pinpoint the location of leaks. Once identified, we can move towards repairing the leaks.
Safety Before A San Jose Gas Line Repair
Suppose you find that you’re experiencing any of the tell-tale signs of a gas leak (hissing sounds, rotten egg odors, rising utility bills). In that case, the first thing you need to do is exit your home. Once safely outside, you should contact either emergency services or a reliable plumbing company(that’s us!) for help.
Contact emergency services if you need immediate assistance with a leak, especially with one outside your property line. However, if the problem is minor and in your home, contact Genmor Plumbing, Inc., and we’ll rush out to help you. With our San Jose gas line repair service, we’ll have you back in your home in no time. Unfortunately, specific jobs take more time than others.
Gas Lines Replacement in San Jose
While uncommon, gas lines do deteriorate over time due to multiple factors. Lousy weather, geological events, or mechanical damage can all lead gas lines to become entirely unusable. A simple repair is not enough; San Jose needs a gas lines replacement. Only a replacement can ensure that you will suffer further leaks.
