What Is A Gas Regulator?
A regulator manages the pressure and flow of gas in your pipes as per your thermostat settings. It initiates flow when necessary and turns off when the desired temperature is reached.
The gas that comes into your home from your main gas line is high pressure. Your regulator reduces the pressure and controls the flow to a suitable rate for your heating system and appliances.
Signs Your Gas Regulator Is In Need of Repair
It is important to ensure your regulator is working correctly. When it fails to work, it will continue to produce gas into your home instead of shutting it off at the appropriate levels. When this occurs, gas can leak into your home. If you smell natural gas (rotten egg smell) it is important to seek professional help. Call Moore’s Plumbing - Mesquite at 972-342-3709 and we can ensure the right emergency response happens. It is important to catch this early because if enough gas builds up an explosion could occur.
Cause of Regulator Malfunction
Typically, a regulator can stop working if debris has lodged inside. It is important to have a certified gas fitter / plumber to inspect and make the necessary repairs and maintenance work. Your health and safety depends on catching an issue quickly.
