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.

What People Are Saying

  • Excellent and prompt service.  The workmen were professional and helpful in their explanation of care and service of the equipment.

  • I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience.  From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

    - Sondra S.( Shaker Heights, Air Conditioning Installation July 2017 )
  • Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly.  Excellent quality work to boot!

    - John S.( Cleveland, Air Conditioning Installation, June 2017 )
  • I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install.  Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily.  Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project.  A++ and highly recommended!

  • The unit is working very well.  The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully.  I would never have even known they were there.  Thank you again.
