Earthquake Shut-Off Valve Installation in Portland
Invest in a Potentially Life-Saving Device
Many heating and cooling systems these days are operated using gas as a source of fuel. Gas is potentially hazardous and could lead to fatal explosions, fires, or death. In the event of an earthquake, gas poses another threat – it could potentially be ignited should the ground begin to rumble and shake.
It is always best to take precautionary measures when gas is involved. An earthquake shut-off valve is programmed to cut off the flow of gas in the event of an occurrence such as an earthquake, or if there appears to be a potentially hazardous gas leak within the system. At Morrison Heating & Cooling, we know the dangers of gas and we know what precautions must be taken in order to benefit from the use of this power source.
Let us help you install an earthquake shut-off valve in your home or business. Contact us at (503) 683-7077 for a free quote.
Installation: Guaranteed Gas Safety
When installing or working on a heating or cooling unit, we always recommend the addition of an earthquake shut-off valve as an added safety measure. We encourage customers to use gas over electricity for cost-efficiency and environmental reasons, but we are careful to explain the hazards of such a power source as well.
The mechanism of the valve itself is fairly simple. When the valve is triggered or activated, the mechanism shuts off or blocks the flow of gas. Installing an earthquake shut-off valve in Portland is beneficial for both home and business owners.
What Are Seismic Valves?
Seismic valves are designed with earthquake hazards in mind. They are triggered by the shaking of the ground. Each valve has a pre-set level of shut off. When the ground shaking reaches that point, the valve will shut off all gas flow through the system and into your home. The valve can be manually reset once you are certain that there is no potential risk of explosion or fire. A flow valve works on the same principles; however, the trigger is an excess flow of gas through the system. The valve will read this as a leak and shut off the flow of gas into the home.
Both valves are precautionary and designed for the particular trigger. We recommend both in instances where the area is prone to earthquakes. Always have the valves fitted by a trained technician to ensure that they are installed properly in the correct place.
