This article is from The NY Times, and they have a paywall limit of five free articles a month, but you can usually read them by opening the link in an incognito tab. The gist is that gas lines are pressured, and small amounts of gas often leak from the fittings. There are many couplings and fittings between the supply lines and the appliances. Any of these can develop small leaks over time. I have a gas cooktop and I always turn the vent on low when using it. The article says that gas ovens can be the worst, because they maintain temperature by shutting off and on. I post this as a reminder to have good ventilation near any gas appliance if you have birds. I wonder if this might be a contributing factor so some of the unexplained deaths we have had this past year? More people stuck at home, and cooking?
