5 Ways To Prep Your Propane Home For Fall
Fall is upon the Lonestar State, but that doesn’t mean everything should be just about pumpkin spice lattes and falling leaves. This is also the time you should be thinking about how to get your home and propane appliances ready for the season. Taking care of the little things can make a big difference when winter's frosty bite comes around. To make sure you're ready, we’ve prepared a few suggestions to do before the cooler temperatures come knocking.
Refill Propane Tanks
The first thing you’ll want to do is check your propane tank levels. If they’re running low, you’ll definitely want to call and schedule a delivery. Waiting to get your tank filled until the last minute can leave you unprepared for the season, especially if an early cold snap comes around.
Heating System Maintenance
The next step should be to give your heating system a once over to make sure it’s working properly. You don’t want to assume everything's fine only to discover that your heating system needs repairs when you need it most.
Gas Stove Checkup
When is the last time you checked the flame on your gas stove? A quick color check can determine whether or not your stove needs to be serviced or not. If the flame is blue, it’s A-OK. If the color is yellow or another color, that might be an indication that the burners may be clogged or need adjusting.
Review Your Water Heater
The fall is a great time to take care of maintenance for your propane water heater. Even though you likely use it year-round, sediments can easily build up inside, and a breakdown in the cold winter months is much more frustrating. Regular maintenance is the best way to avoid problems and keep it sediment-free.
Go Over Propane Safety
It’s important that everyone in your home knows what to do in case they smell a gas leak. Go over safety procedures and emergency plans, such as shutting off the gas, reporting the leak, and evacuation.
