There are a few warning signs that you should look for regarding gas leaks. Once these signs are visible you should seek professional help for gas line repairs. Following are the signs:
The smell of gas: The smell of gas is the first sign that you should look for. Gas has a smell like that of sulfur and it is unmistakable. It is not always the case that the smell of gas will be present in leaks but if present you should take it seriously as it shows that something is not right.
Pipe temperature: The temperature of the pipe is the second sign. In case a leak exists in a line, then the pressure of the gas will drop in a line and it will cool down. This dip in temperature can sometimes cause the formation of ice.
Hissing noises: This is the third sign of a gas leak. It is the noise that the gas makes while escaping through small openings in line. The noise can sometimes be heard easily and sometimes it is hard to hear it depending on the location of the leak. In case any noise is coming from the line, it should be checked.
