Frequently Asked Questions about Gas Leaks

Yes, you can.

While gas is naturally odourless, utility companies add a strong odourant to the gas that is stored in your home. This smells like rotten eggs, so that it can be immediately detected when there is a leak.

Exposure to gas can make you feel unwell.

Prolonged exposure to leaking gas can lead to headaches, impaired vision, fatigue, loss of breath, and unconsciousness.

You should report a gas leak immediately once you have detected its presence.

Signs of a gas leak include rotten eggs smell, dizziness, high pitched whistling from your gas appliance, and significantly more expensive gas bills than you would normally receive.
