Natural gas is lighter than air and will dissipate into the atmosphere unless confined. It
has a higher combustion temperature than other fuels. Combustion cannot occur unless a narrow range
of fuel-to-air mixture is present. Find out what
to do if you

The most common way to detect a natural gas leak is by smell. The use of a
