Do you know the first 3 most important things to do if you suspect a propane gas leak? Refresh your memory with this helpful video and remember, safety first: OUR EMERGENCY SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE 24 HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK at 1-800-242-0427
Propane is a safe, reliable, and efficient fuel that will provide for your comfort during the season. However, accumulated snow and ice have the potential to damage your propane system. Superior Energy is here to help you protect your system and ensure its safety, as well as that of your home and family.
Over the years, our company has been beset by ever-increasing government regulations especially for companies like us who transport propane and are classified as a hazardous material shipper. These regulations have placed a financial burden on our company & industry as a whole. Today we are compelled to comply with:
Propane pool, spa and hot tub heaters must be installed according to the manufacturer's instructions, and in accordance with state or local building or fire codes. Learn and follow local regulations for the safe connection, use and storage of propane equipment.
RVs should be checked annually by a Railroad Commission-licensed propane gas supplier or licensed RV dealer. The technician will check the system for leaks and proper regulator settings, inspect the valvesand fittings, and inspect the propane tanks for excessive rust and dents.
Propane gas grills should be cleaned before storage. You will need warm soapy water, a brass-bristle brush, a soft cloth, toothpicks, sandpaper, a bottle brush and your grill owner's manual. First clean the briquettes and cooking grids.
Have your propane gas log and fireplace systems checked each fall. During your propane gas supplier's inspection, a trained technician will check the system, clean the control compartments and burners, and make sure all components are operating properly.
A little upkeep can make your propane gas water heater live longer and work more efficiently. If the tank rumbles or creaks, collected sediment is the likely cause. Every six months, you should flush the tank by attaching a hose to the drain and letting the water run out for three to five minutes.
Parents should make sure children who are home alone know the rules of gas appliance safety. Let your children know what typical noises your furnace, water heater or refrigerator can make. They will be less fearful on their own if they know that your water heater normally gurgles or the furnace sometimes creaks and pops.
If your home has a propane furnace, water heater, range or other conveniences, you should schedule an annual gas check of your whole propane system, including the appliances. Your local propane gas supplier will send a specially trained service technician to check your system for leaks and ensure that it meets all applicable safety standards.
When handled properly, propane is a safe, clean, versatile and highly efficient fuel that can be used for many consumer products. If your home or business uses propane to generate heat or run appliances, there are a few simple steps you can take to keep your family safe and avoid potential dangers:
Consumers are not entirely powerless, though, and many have already started to react to higher energy bills. Many homeowners are realizing that they can offset some of the high cost of heating their home by conducting a routine all-around assessment of the heating system which ensures optimal efficiency.
