Gas leak detection is critical, and it’s important you know the signs of a gas leak. The biggest one is the smell of sulfur. Gas companies put an additive in their gas so that sulfur smell can let you know you have a gas leak. If you smell that, leave your house and turn off the gas immediately.

In most cases, no. Repairing gas lines as a DIY project is incredibly complex and potentially dangerous. If you want to do anything beyond capping an old space heater gas line, you should call for professional help.
