Ensuring Proper Functioning of Your Propane Appliances

Proper maintenance of your propane appliances is crucial for both safety and efficiency. At Glenwood Energy, we strongly recommend leaving the maintenance tasks to qualified service technicians. They have the necessary training and expertise to install, inspect, service, maintain, and repair your appliances. Schedule an annual inspection of your appliances and propane system just before the start of each heating season to ensure they are in optimal condition.
Flammable Vapor Safety

Understanding the Dangers of Flammable Vapors

Flammable vapors are a safety hazard when it comes to propane usage. It is important to keep flammable products, such as gasoline, solvents, paints, and aerosol sprays, away from propane appliances, tanks, and storage areas. These vapors can ignite easily, leading to fires or explosions. Ensure proper ventilation in your propane storage areas to minimize the risk of flammable vapors accumulating.

Gas leaks are a serious safety concern when it comes to propane. If you detect a gas leak, it is crucial to take immediate action.

If you suspect a gas leak, turn the tank off if you can do so safely, evacuate the area immediately, avoid using any potential ignition sources, and contact a qualified propane professional to address the issue.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and highly dangerous gas that can be produced when any fuel burns. It is crucial to be aware of the risks associated with CO and take necessary precautions to protect yourself and your family. Install carbon monoxide detectors in your home, have your propane appliances inspected regularly, ensure proper ventilation, and learn to recognize the symptoms of CO poisoning.
