Mice chewed through the gas line to the furnace.

I thanked the HVAC technician and told him he may have been a lifesaver

I couldn’t understand why I was smelling gas in the basement. For the last two days, the smell of gas was getting stronger, and I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. We had a gas furnace, and I was getting worried. At first I wasn’t worried. We had recently had the fuel tank filled. I thought the gas delivery person may have leaked some gas when he filled the tank. When the gas smell got worse, I called the HVAC company. I wanted someone to look at the furnace to make sure there was nothing wrong with the furnace. I knew what could happen if a gas furnace broke, and I wanted nothing to happen to my family. When the HVAC technician arrived, he went all over the furnace, but he found nothing wrong. The only thing he found was that a mouse had chewed a hole in the gas line. Luckily, there were no open flames around the gas line, and no one had struck a match or caused a spark. The gas fumes would have lit quickly and possibly caused an explosion. He said the gas needed to be cleaned up properly, and the gas company would need to come back out and repair the gas line. He also recommended we have an exterminator come out and get rid of the mice. I thanked the HVAC technician and told him he may have been a lifesaver. He shook my hand and headed out the door. Now, my work was going to begin, so I got on the phone to call the gas company, get someone to get rid of the gas that leaked into the ground, and an exterminator so it didn’t happen again.
