How to detect a gas leak in my house?
Typically domestic gas detection is limited to two main areas, Gas detection for Natural gas (methane) or LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) and Carbon Monoxide.
Natural gas (also known as methane) is used in homes for cooking, heating and water heating. Although it is a clean, efficient and relatively safe gas it can cause carbon monoxide poisoning and when a gas leak occurs a small spark from simply turning on a light switch can cause a fire (as natural gas is highly flammable) or create an explosion.
Although generally safe to use in the house, when natural gas does not burn up completely because of faulty installation or lack of ventilation, it emits a byproduct of carbon monoxide. If CO levels rise quickly or exposure continues, it can lead to unconsciousness and fatality.
How to detect home gas leaks, How do you know if the natural gas or carbon monoxide levels in your house are safe? You can buy a natural gas alarm or a CO alarm that will sound an alarm if gas levels exceed a safety threshold. protects your family against two deadly household threats(natural gas and carbon monoxide).
