Gas Company Shutdown
Correcting Gas Company Shutdowns Have you recently received a gas violation that has resulted in a gas company shutdown? Gas companies will shut off your gas if they find a leak or another grievous malfunction that makes the gas unsafe to operate. When this happens, especially during the winter, it’s important to hire a licensed master plumber in New York City to identify the problems and perform the correct repairs.
Reasons you Received a Gas Company Shutdown
It’s important to note that inspectors don’t typically show up to your building randomly. If you’re performing work in the building, then an inspector may come by to check the progress and perform various inspections at certain stages. If you are not having any repair, installation or maintenance work performed on your gas lines, then an inspector would only stop by after being informed of a problem. This usually occurs after maintenance tickets have been ignored.
- Someone smells gas in your building.
- The gas water heater, boiler or stove doesn’t work, and it’s suspected to be a gas line or supply problem.
- Gas pipes are obviously corroded.
- There were no permits pulled for recent gas pipe work.
- Recent gas line work was performed by the wrong contractor, AKA someone not licensed.
What You Can Do to Prevent gas Company Shutdowns in the Future
Having the gas company shut off your gas at the meter is the worst-case scenario. It means that a pipe or gas-using appliance is so dangerous in your building that the gas is unsafe to use. The good news is that you can prevent these types of shutdown in the future by ensuring you always hire a licensed master plumber along with the appropriate contractors any time you should have gas pipe work done. You should also have your gas pipes regularly inspected and maintained to ensure everything is always in good working order.
