  • Smell of rotten eggs. Natural gas on its own is colorless and odorless. Most utility companies add a sulfur compound to natural gas (where the rotten egg smell comes from), so you know if you have a leak.
  • Hissing sound near a gas line. If you hear a hissing/whistling sound behind a wall or near a gas-powered appliance, you probably have a leak.
  • White or dusty cloud near a gas line. An outdoor gas leak can kick up dirt, creating a dusty cloud. A leak can also blow on plants, making them move like they would in a breeze.
  • Damaged gas pipe connection. If your gas line has a damaged connection or portion of pipe, you might have a leak.
  • Higher-than-normal gas bills. If you've noticed a recent spike in energy bills (with the same amount of gas usage), a leak could be the problem.
  • Dead landscaping and houseplants. Gas cuts off a plant's oxygen source. If you have a slow gas leak, indoor and outdoor plants will start to to look sick and eventually die.

If you think you have a gas leak in your home, follow the steps below.

  1. Go outside. Natural gas can have harmful effects on people, so you'll want to get out of the house as soon as you can. Do not turn off any electrical switches or use a phone or flashlight on your way out. Any kind of spark (even from static electricity or starting your car) can ignite the gas and cause an explosion.
  2. Open windows and doors. If you can, open windows and doors on your way out of the house. This will help clear your home of the gas.
  3. Call for help. Once you're outside, call 911 and then EPS Energy at (210) 353-4357 to let them know there's a gas leak.

"Ryan was very professional and polite. He did a complete check of our system and identified an issue and gave us options and then did a quick and efficient installation of the needed part. In addition, he identified a gas leak (not an AC problem) that we were not aware of. Without his diligence our safety could have been greatly impacted. We cannot say enough good things about the service we received from Ryan. Shafer Services needs to make sure they keep him as an employee!" – 5-star rating from Gerald K.

Your gas line repair cost depends on:

  • Location of the leak. The harder it is to access the damaged pipe, the more the repair will cost. For example, you'll pay more to repair a pipe in a hard-to-reach place like beneath a slab or in a small crawlspace. Plus, any kind of cosmetic repairs (drywall, landscaping, etc.) will add to your cost.
  • Pipe material. Steel and copper piping will cost more than PVC or aluminum. Your plumber will be able to tell you which materials can be used inside and outside of a home, which can be buried, and so on.
  • Whether a permit is required. If the plumber needs to pull a permit to repair the gas leak, the fees to do so will increase your overall repair cost.

  • You have a gas leak. Sometimes a gas leak repair will turn into replacing the line. Your plumber will be able to tell whether you should repair your current line or install a new one.
  • You're installing a gas-powered appliance. You'll likely need to either install or extend a gas line if you're:
    • Converting from an electric appliance to a gas-powered one (like a water heater, stove, dryer or furnace)
    • Installing a gas-powered appliance in a new location (a grill or outdoor fireplace, for example)
  • You have copper gas lines. Many plumbers don't recommend using copper for gas lines because it tends to become brittle and crack. Plus, copper is prone to corrosion (especially in humid areas like San Antonio), which, if ignored, can lead to a gas leak.

"I called Shafer Services to repair my dad's hot water heater. The technician they sent out, Ismael, was prompt, professional and courteous. He took the time needed to diagnose the problem, which was an unusual gas line problem, and ended up arranging to have the water heater replaced. Ismael did a good job keeping me informed of his progress and was meticulous about his work and cleaning up. The price was reasonable for the work that was done. We will use Shafer Services again." – 5-star rating from Cynthia O.

Your gas line installation cost depends on:

  • Length of the line. The longer the line you need installed, the more you'll pay. A longer line not only requires more materials, but also more time and effort on the plumber's end.
  • Location of the line. Installing a gas line in hard-to-access places, like beneath a slab or in a small crawlspace, will cost more. You might also have to pay cosmetic or landscaping repairs after the line is installed, which will increase your cost.
  • Pipe material. Pipes made of sturdy metal will cost more than ones made of cheaper metal or plastic. Your plumber can tell you which material should be used, based on where you want the gas line installed and why it will be used.
  • Permit fees. The plumber will likely need to pull a permit to install or extend a gas line. The permit fees will add to your overall installation cost.
