Not many of us think about the dangers our water heaters and gas appliances can pose when they aren’t installed or maintained properly. When a gas water heater is leaking toxic odorless gas, it can quickly lead to death. Fortunately, in the United States we have laws in place that require a chemical called mercaptan to be added to the natural gas, which gives it a distinct odor so that you can tell there is a gas leak. This gives you the opportunity to act fast.
If you do smell gas coming from your water heater call a reliable company like East Coast Mechanical (ECM) in Boynton Beach and we will send out one of our certified and insured plumbers to inspect the water heater and fix any issues.
