Propane Safety Tips
Posted on June 25th, 2021 by Devine Bros
Propane is a versatile fuel source used for everything from cooking to heating your home to starting your barbeque. With its many uses and the need to have a decent supply with you all the time, it’s essential that you know how to keep yourself safe while using propane. We encourage homeowners who use propane in their homes to understand the proper precautions to take every day!
Here Are a Few Propane Safety Tips Every Homeowner Should Follow
Turn Off Gas When It’s Not Being Used
Always turn off the gas at the source when not using your appliance or lighting equipment. Whether cooking with a grill, using stovetop burners, or just keeping food warm, it’s crucial that you shut off any gas appliance when not in use to protect your home and family.
One of the most important things that any homeowner needs to do is read the instructions on how their appliance works with propane and then follow those directions accordingly to not accidentally cause an explosion or fire. Only use equipment that has been approved by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)!
Keep Out of Young Children’s Reach
Keep an eye on children when they’re around any gas-powered equipment or machinery; don’t let them play in areas where there is natural gas leaking. Make sure they are all caught up on the places they need to avoid!
Ensure You Have How Much You Need
You should make sure your gas tank is always full so that there’s no need for someone to refuel a tank when they’re running low on fuel. It can be dangerous to refill a propane tank while still connected to appliances or piping systems. Not only that, but it will make your life much easier if your tanks are full, so you don’t have to stop what you’re doing and refill your fuel source.
