You probably don’t think a lot about your gas lines and what’s running through them. But you should give these supply lines some credit. Gas pipes are not only responsible for turning your gas stove on but can also be used for water heating, HVAC systems, fireplaces, and dryers. Without a functioning system of natural gas lines, you’d find modern living out of reach. But hooking up and repairing the involved equipment is dangerous and best left to a local gasfitting professional.

The Benefits of Natural Gas
If your home already uses electricity for heating or cooling, you might be wondering if the hassle of adding natural gas is worth it. Below are a few reasons we think every homeowner in Port Huron should consider switching to or giving themselves natural gas access:
No More Fuel Deliveries: If you have a propane tank, you know the anxiety and hassle that comes with filling it back up. By having natural gas piped in, all those worries go away.
Quick Heating: Natural gas usually rests above 100°F (38°C). It also retains heat well and doesn’t require much to reach its desired temperature. This allows it to heat your home—or appliance—more quickly.
Expanded Appliance Selection: Electric appliances are often cited as being weaker than their gas-burning counterparts. There are also some options only offered with gas appliances.
Eco-Friendliness: If you’re concerned about the environment, natural gas is one of the cleanest fuels out there. The only things that beat it are geothermal and radiant heat.
There are a few downsides to natural gas. The largest amongst these—though something easily avoided with regular maintenance—is the risk of a gas leak. These unwanted hassles are dangerous and always need to be fixed by a professional gas pipe repair company. While the signs of a gas leak can be subtle, it can help to know them:
Development of Physical Symptoms: When we inhale toxic gas fumes, our bodies sense the danger almost immediately. This leads to lightheadedness, nausea, and dizziness. If you experience a sudden onset of these symptoms—and other people in your home do as well—leave your home immediately. Then, call (810) 985-7103 to have one of VHP's gasfitting professionals take a look.
Malfunctioning Gas Appliances: If there’s a gas leak, you’ll likely notice an issue with connected appliances. For example, your gas water heater and gas stove may go out at the same time. Fortunately, reaching out to Port Huron’s gas fitting specialists is all you need to get back to normal.
Outrageous Gas Bills: A gas leak is often most noticeable in your monthly energy costs. Make sure to check your bills to ensure there’s no unexplained spikes.
Dying Plants: Are your plants wilting and yellowing with no discernible cause? A damaged gas pipe or line may be to blame. Plants—like canaries—are highly sensitive to airborne toxins. A sudden change in their health is often a warning that something is wrong.
When it comes to plumbing issues, gas leaks are one of the most dangerous things you can face. So, don’t brush off these signs as happenstance. Take them seriously and reach out to a gasfitter familiar with the Port Huron area as soon as possible.
