Locating the Gas Shut off Valve in a Home

Whether you just purchased your home or have been there for years, knowing where your gas shut off valve is an important thing.

If you smell gas, don’t touch anything and you and everyone leave the house immediately. Do not turn anything on or off including a phone. The slightest spark can set off the gas causing sever injury or death.

Knowing where you gas shut off is before an emergency happens, or you are having an appliance replaced, will make everyone life a little easier.

An important note to remember is that when the gas is turned off, all appliances in the house will go out. Therefore you will need to relight them once the gas is turned back on. Make sure you get them all. Stove, oven, water heater, heating system and gas fire places can all have pilots that need to be lit. If you are unsure of how to accomplish this, please call a professional.

There are two types of gas you can have in your home – Liquid Propane and Natural Gas.
