How We Repair Gas Leaks in NYC Properties
A gas leak is invisible. It starts when pipes become old or cracked or connections between the gas main, lateral pipes, or appliances deteriorate. NYC gas has an odorous component that smells like rotten eggs added to make it easier to detect. This is how most of our clients first notice a gas leak.
Other signs include headaches, nausea, and burning eyes for people on the premises. A small but ongoing leak may also cause house plants in the vicinity to start dying. If you have noticed any of these signs, our gas leak detection can pinpoint where the leak is occurring and where we need to make repairs.
Gas leak repair might also be required after a DOB inspection reveals gas in the air, which will often result in a violation as well. We use the violation and our own inspection to confirm what work we need to complete.
- Filing Permits – The DOB requires permits for most gas line work. We submit these before we get started to keep everything to code.
- Repair or Repipe Gas Pipes – With permits in hand, we conduct any repair work or, in more extreme situations, repipe the gas system. We will always opt for the most affordable and safest options.
- Testing – We conduct final testing to make sure the leak is gone and all systems are functioning correctly.
Once we are certain the gas pipe is leak-free and working as expected again, we can request that ConEd or National Grid turns your gas service back on and you can return to heating, cooling, and powering your property as normal. If there was a violation issued, we can also submit the necessary paperwork to the DOB for gas violation removal.
