Gas Leak Detectors
Take away the worry of an undetected gas leak by installing a gas leak detector.
Most homes use natural gas for cooking, heating, and water heating. Although rare, a natural gas leak can sometimes occur inside the home, leading to an increased risk of fire or explosion. Typically, natural gas leaks are easily detected by smell, however, people who have a diminished sense of smell may not be able to rely upon this safety mechanism.
A gas leak detector can be an important tool to help protect you and your family. A gas detector can be either battery-operated, or have a battery back-up system for a 110-volt electrical power supply. Often, there is a “test” button on the gas detector that will allow you to make sure that the alarm and batteries are working properly. Remember to check the batteries and the gas detection alarm regularly. Also, a good gas detector will warn you if there is a power loss or other malfunction.
Gas detection devices use sensors to find out if there are dangerous levels of natural gas nearby. Some types of gas detector can be linked to a valve to automatically cut off the gas supply when a leak is detected. Although easy to install, it is worth noting a gas leak detector should not be installed in an enclosed space, directly above a sink or a cooker, next to a window, door or extractor fan. For models with a gas shut off valve, it may be best to seek the services of a qualified gas engineer to install the unit.
