Only a few months ago I was requested to perform a home inspection. One of the first comments in the list of concerns was a “smell gas in the home”.  Sure enough they were correct. Our EzFlex™ Combustible Gas Detector quickly located the leak.  This confirmed the presence of a leak, even with the shut off valve in the closed position.

When your YEG Edmonton Home Inspector is working for you an important tool utilized is the  EzFlex™ Combustible Gas Detector. These small handheld units only need a few minutes to warm up and can last years.

A very good investment for any YEG Edmonton Home Inspector for around $200.00.

 

So we confirmed the leak now what.

I in this case we decided to open the windows in order to get a good air exchange. We then contacted ATCO GAS at 780-420-5585. We informed the very patient operator of the concern and discovery. Within no less then twenty minutes a ATCO GAS van arrived. Another service professional was in the home. This guy came prepared with some the best equipment. He confirmed our concern and got to work.
