How Can Gas Lines Become Damaged?
There are a few different ways that a gas line may become damaged, leading to a gas leak. Some of the most common causes of broken or damaged gas lines include:
- Corrosion from old age, chemicals in the soil, vibrations in the earth, etc.
- Punctures caused by nearby tree roots.
- Human error in construction striking the gas line.
You can prevent gas line damage by having your gas lines replaced before they begin to corrode. It’s also important to know where your gas lines run under your property so that you can avoid them during construction and avoid planting trees too close to them.
Clean Energy for Your Home
In trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, natural gas is the leading option in the US. Electric power generates an excess of carbon dioxide emissions. It’s also more of a drain on your monthly energy bill.
But natural gas is an abundant and important tool in clean energy. Homes that use gas benefit from fewer emissions, lowering your carbon footprint and decreasing energy use.
