General Safety Precautions when using Propane
As a general rule, when in doubt, call us. Here are some general guidelines on what NOT to do, to make sure you're using your propane safely!
NEVER use outdoor propane appliances (including portable heaters, grills, and generators) indoors or in enclosed areas. This could result in carbon monoxide poisoning, extreme danger, or even death. Only use appliances that are designed and approved for indoor use.
NEVER store or place a propane cylinder indoors or in an enclosed area such as a basement, garage, shed, or tent. It is illegal and highly unsafe to store propane tanks indoors.
NEVER try to modify or repair valves, regulators, or other appliance parts.
NEVER turn on a light switch, use any power source, or inspect your household appliances while standing in water. This can result in electrocution.
NEVER store combustible materials near appliances.
ONLY inspect your propane appliances for water or other damage if it is safe to do so. If the appliances have electric components and have been exposed to water, they can create a fire hazard.
