Warm weather means it’s propane season.
To make the most out of your time outside this summer, keep these propane tips in mind:
- Store it safely: Keep propane cylinders stored outdoors in an upright position. Never place them on their side or in the house or garage.
- Don’t let it leak: Every time you replace a propane tank, use a soapy water solution to check for leaks at connection points. If you see bubbles, there is a leak. Turn off the valve (clockwise) if you smell gas. Have it checked by a technician to ensure its safety before using it.
- Relight the right way: Sometimes the flame doesn’t light up right away after you’ve turned on the propane. Turn off the gas, wait at least 15 minutes and try again.
- Cut your lawn costs: Part of enjoying the outdoors in the summer is enjoying your beautiful lawn. Consider a propane lawnmower for considerable fuel savings. Propane mowers typically cost about 30% less to operate than a gasoline model.
- Take the kitchen outside: More and more people are discovering the joys of an outdoor kitchen. You can use propane to power appliances such as the grill and a refrigerator to put everything you need within arm’s reach.
