Gas Piping Installation, Repair and Testing

Cleveland’s experts on the safe handling of gas pipes

The use of natural gas to heat buildings and power appliances is common in Northeast Ohio. Everything from stoves and furnaces to generators and boilers depend on the regular flow of gas through pipes in and under your home. When a gas pipe is improperly installed or leaking, it can be more than inconvenient; it can be downright dangerous! Natural gas is colorless and odorless, so utility companies use a strong sulfur odorant in their systems to alert customers of a gas leak. An unnoticed leak that releases chemicals into the air can be extremely hazardous, potentially leading to carbon monoxide poisoning or explosions. Cleveland plumbing company Verne & Ellsworth Hann is the best choice for all of your gas piping installation, repair and testing needs.

An essential but hazardous element of your home

The following are telltale signs of a gas leak in your house or on your property:

  • A strong gas smell in the home or outside near gas lines
  • A hissing sound coming from pipes
  • Movement or water bubbling in puddles in the ground above gas lines
  • Plant materials over gas lines turning brown

What to do if your gas piping is leaking

If you suspect that you may have a leak emanating from one of your gas pipes, leave your home immediately! After an emergency safety inspection is performed by the local utility company, you will need to contact a professional right away to solve the underlying problem. Because natural gas and propane are highly flammable materials, you will need the services of a company that adheres to the highest safety standards and has years of experience; in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, your best choice is Verne & Ellsworth Hann.

  • We have used Verne & Ellsworth Hann for 25 years for yearly tune ups and repairs. We would trust no one else. Three years ago they installed an air conditioning system in our old, large Shaker Heights home. They did a fantastic job. Other companies who install AC in these old homes will tell you that they can only put duct work to the 2nd floor. Verne & Ellsworth Hann was able to snake the air conditioning ducts down into almost all of our 1st floor rooms. Their workers were professional, neat and efficient and we love the new system. This past fall upon our annual boiler inspection, the technician found that we had a crack in our 20+ year old boiler. He was able to remove some heating units to nurse it along until we could schedule a new boiler installation. This was completed in December (including running new return lines and asbestos removal). Again, the work was all completed professionally, efficiently and neatly. I always recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann to my friends. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

  • Great job!  My house is nice and warm with no more worries about the ancient boiler.  Thank you for making the extra effort regarding the garage heater and sorting out the complicated multi component heating system.
