San Diego Gas Leak Detection & Repair
What To Do If You Suspect You Have A Gas Leak
The first indication that you might have a gas leak on your property is the smell of gas. If you detect a gas-like odor in, around, or near your property, immediately evacuate the area. Open doors and extinguish any open flames as you leave, if you can. Do not cause any potential sparks by unplugging or plugging in any appliances, flipping any light switches or using your phone. Even turning on a flashlight could cause a spark. DO NOT smoke or light a match near your home.
Contact San Diego Gas & Electric Immediately
You can call the SDG&E emergency number at 1-800-611-7343 or 9-1-1 from an outside phone. We recommend you call us first. If you call SDG&E you'll likely get a gas lockout and it could take days to get the gas turned back on. It's best to call us directly. Let us know you smell gas and that it's an emergency. Once we arrive, if we determine it is on the SDG&E side of the meter, we can call SDG&E for you. We can save you from a ton of frustration with lockouts.
Do not re-enter your home until a gas company official has inspected the premises and deemed it safe. They may shut-off your gas—call us for any necessary repairs to get your gas turned back on.

Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation
Are carbon monoxide detectors required by law? In San Diego, all homes are required to have a carbon monoxide detector. A California law that went into effect July 1st, 2011 states that “all single-family homes with a gas, oil or coal-burning appliance, a fireplace or an attached garage are required to have a "carbon monoxide detector.”
Where is the best place to install a carbon monoxide detector?
Homeowners are required to place detectors just outside the sleeping area in each area of their homes. If you have a two-story home, you are required to have one on each floor.
