What should you do in your home for combustible gas?
Typically, there are two main types of household combustible gases: Natural gas (methane) and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas). Natural gas or LPG is used in homes for cooking and water heating. Although it is a clean, efficient and relatively safe gas and when a gas leak occurs a spark from simply turning on a light switch can cause a fire or create an explosion.
A common misconception is that you can smell natural gas leaks. Although vendors add something to the gas that gives it that distinct smell. But if the leak is from a raw natural gas pipeline, or if it’s a slow leak, your nose likely won’t detect it.
Home natural gas alarm protects your home from explosion hazards. These can arise from leaking pipework, poor installations and appliance defects.
We have different types of gas alarms, catering for both LPG gas users and natural gas users. The GT natural gas leak alarm is an automatic high-sensitivity gas leak alarm. It monitors the concentration of natural or LPG gas in the air at all times, and initiates an alarm (75 dB) when a gas leak concentration of more than 7% is detected. The optional relay/gas valve shut off output allows easy connection with valves or ventilating facilities.
