Keep Your Property Safe
Timothy Off is a plumbing company that offers gas line repair and replacement for homes and businesses in Pennsylvania. Many home and business owners in our area choose natural gas because it is efficient, effective, and convenient. It can fuel furnaces, water heaters, stoves, and much more. While a relatively safe fuel source, natural gas does come with some inherent risks, but our team is here for you to perform any gas line inspections, repairs, and replacements that you require.
Locate and Stop Gas Leaks
The most notable concern with natural gas is a gas line leak. Such leaks can occur both inside and outside the home, and while they are quite rare, they are very dangerous. Natural gas is mixed with mercaptan, which is what gives the gas a rotten egg smell. If you ever notice this smell, gas line repair is likely necessary and you should get away from the property and call your local utility or propane provider. Once the gas is off and you are safe, you can contact Timothy Off to come out to diagnose and fix the problem.
What if I Smell Gas?
- Don’t use cell phone anywhere near the scent
- Don’t light an open flame
- Shut off your gas valve
- Don’t attempt to locate the leak
- Don’t turn any electrical appliances on or off
- Get away from the property and call your local utility or propane provider
Gas Line Testing Service
Timothy Off recommends preventative maintenance, which provides peace of mind and helps to avoid the need for gas line repair. Our plumbing experts can perform a comprehensive inspection and testing to ensure that your gas line is in peak condition and help to avoid future troubles. Testing standards are dictated by the Pennsylvania code and any requirements set forth by your gas company.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning is a Serious Threat
A gas appliance that is functioning well and adequately ventilated will not introduce any carbon monoxide into your home. However, when natural gas is not burned fully, CO is a byproduct, and that issue can be exacerbated by inadequate ventilation. CO is often called the silent killer. More than 70% of CO poisonings annually in the United States occur in the home. CO is colorless and odorless, which is why it is so important to have CO detectors in your home. If you ever suspect that there is CO present in your residence, get the entire family outside and then call your local utility or propane provider.
Signs of CO Poisoning
- Shortness of breath
- Nausea or vomiting
- Blurred vision
Expert Excavation Services
If you have a leak and require gas line repair, it may be necessary to perform excavation to access the section of the line that needs to be repaired or replaced. Timothy Off has excavation specialists who will use a mini backhoe to perform excavation, and we provide these services not just for gas line repair and replacement but the repair and replacement of water lines, sewer lines, and so forth.
Don’t Try to Repair a Gas Line Yourself
Sometimes, people accidentally damage their gas lines while digging outside. If this happens, don’t attempt to fix the line yourself. Instead, contact Timothy Off. We offer professional commercial or residential backhoe services that include gas line repair and replacement. We can fix your gas line and get it back to supplying your home’s energy in no time.
Many home and businesses owners who have access to a natural gas line but are not yet taking advantage of it are choosing to switch, and Timothy Off can help you with that conversion. We can do everything necessary to switch you from electricity, propane, or heating oil. You may want to switch to a gas-fueled furnace or a hybrid heating system. We can also perform the conversion for water heaters, indoor and outdoor stoves, fireplaces and fire pits, grills, outdoor heaters, and more. If you currently have a tank for oil or propane, we can decommission it and handle all of those types of details.
