Propane - First Things First
When you venture out to the propane tank, check for a sticker or something that identifies the company servicing the tank. If there are no stickers on the tank, open the dome and see if there is anything identifying a propane gas company such as a tag, sticker or something that gives the name and number of a propane company. This will give an indication of who (or what company) is familiar with your tank and LP Gas system. Most propane companies keep records of tanks that they serve by location and by the tank's serial number.
Other firsts for new propane users after inspecting the tank and based on individual situations include:
Knowing what propane smells like will help you know if there is ever a leak in the LP Gas system. Don't be overwhelmed or feel unsafe by seeing a propane tank on your property...there's nothing to be afraid of. Contrary to first-time propane user beliefs, propane tanks do not explode. Look around this site to see that propane is safe and reliable when understood and respected, just like electricity or natural gas.
What is Propane?
Propane is a hydrocarbon (C3H8) that is produced from both natural gas processing and crude oil refining. It is nontoxic and colorless. Propane is an approved, alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane is used by more than 14 million families to fuel their furnaces, water heaters, outdoor grills, fireplaces, dryers and range tops. Propane is easy to transport and can be used in areas beyond the natural gas mains.
Why Choose Propane?
Propane heats comfortably and fuels most major home appliances from your water heater to your gas fireplace. It is an environmentally friendly, efficient, and economic alternative to costly oil or electric energy.
