That is why when and if you think there is a gas leak in your home, you take the proper precautions. Exit your home and contact emergency services.

Signs You Have a Gas Leak

If your gas bill is steadily climbing, check it against your bills from the previous year. A significant increase in your utility bill could be a big warning sign that your furnace and appliances are leaking gas instead of using it.

Signs of a Broken Pipe

No one wants to find out they have a broken pipe, especially if it results in serious damage to your home. To prevent catastrophic problems, watch out for these signs of a broken pipe.

Unusual Noises
When you turn on the water, do you hear a whistling or clanking sound? Do you hear a bubbling noise from your sink or toilet? These unusual sounds can indicate a damaged or broken pipe. The banging noise could be a loose pipe, and bubbling often occurs when air gets trapped in your sewer pipe.

A High Water Bill
Even a slight leak can add up to hundreds of dollars in wasted water over the course of a year. If you have a broken pipe leaking water somewhere in your home, your monthly bill will reflect that. When you get an unusually high water bill, check your water meter and search for other signs of a leak.

Water Damaged Drywall
Have you noticed water running down a wall or a stain on the ceiling? Is paint or wallpaper bubbling? If you have wet drywall, it could be a sign of a broken pipe. Call a plumber right away to determine the source of the problem! This could also be a sign of a roof leak, so inspect your water meter and home if possible to find out before making a call.

In many cases, broken pipes are the result of aging pipes, bad materials, or from freezing at some point in time. If you notice these signs of a broken pipe, call EW Plumbing at 913.768.8500 for broken pipe repair in Olathe, KS.
