Natural Gas Explosions
Natural gas leaks are capable of explosions once the concentration reaches 4.5% to 14.5%. If you have a natural gas leak, you will be bothered by a very strong, unpleasant smell of mercaptan long before the concentration reaches the explosive range. We add mercaptan to our gas just for this reason. Call and ask us to mail you our safety brochure containing a mercaptan scratch-n-sniff sticker. It's stinky!
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is odorless. For homes, the danger level is 35 parts per million, breathed for 8 or more hours. CO occurs when gas equipment is not kept in tune, and when equipment is not installed with proper venting. It causes nausea, light-headedness, dizziness as it deprives the body of oxygen, and finally, death.
Keep your appliances in tune, and install a wired-in or plug-in CO detector in your home. If the detector sounds leave your home immediately and call 911.
NATURAL GAS PRICE ALERT
Natural gas prices are at a 14-year high and are expected to remain at these levels, and possibly higher, at least through spring of 2023. Since the beginning of March, the market price of natural gas has risen about 90%. To limit the impact to your business or household budgets, we strongly urge everyone to consider ways to conserve energy use.
