Natural gas is one of the safest and cleanest fossil fuels. It is generally very safe to use in homes for heating, stoves, BBQ and other gas appliances given that appliances are in good working conditions. Natural gas is odorless and colourless an impossible to detect without proper tools. However, if there is natural gas leak in your home you will smell rotten eggs or hydrogen sulfide smell. This isn’t the normal natural gas smell it is mercaptan that smells which is harmless but smelly additive that is added to natural gas so that people can detect a leak and evacuate the building immediately. If you smell natural gas you should leave the building and call your gas company i.e. Enbridge or Union Gas depending on the area. Gas utility will turn off your gas and you will receive Red Tag until the issue is fixed. Natural Gas is a combustible it burns very fast and can even explode in rare situation. It is also harmful to breath in natural gas even for a short period of time.

Enbridge Red Tag for Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a natural by-product from the burning process. Carbon Monoxide similar to Natural gas is ordorless and colourless however you will not smell it since no additive can be added to it. It must be safely venting from your water heater, furnace and other appliances since it is deadly. It is the same chemical as the exhaust gases from your car, this is way you have to leave your garage doors open when your car engine is on. Carbon Monoxide can escape from cracked heat exchanger or venting on your furnace. Licensed gas technician can examine your furnace and if he determines the CO leak he will proceed with issuing you Red Tag until the issue is fixed.

Statistics show that hundreds of people die every year from carbon monoxide poisoning in their homes. It is essential that every household has carbon monoxide detectors installed. It is highly recommended that you also perform regular maintenance on your furnace to prevent any gas leaks.
