It’s always tempting to save a few bucks by doing as many home repairs as possible. However, your home repair list should never include doing work on any gas appliance. That’s true whether it’s a stove, a dryer, a water heater or a furnace. Those are jobs that should always be left to a professional!
Every year, a few explosions occur because nonprofessionals tried to make repairs on gas appliances in their homes.
Please! Do not under any circumstances try to modify or repair valves, regulators, connectors, controls or other appliance and cylinder/tank parts. An improperly connected tank or appliance can cause a gas leak. If you want to move your tank, leave that to us.
As you can guess, gas appliances are complicated. That’s why we invest a great deal of time and money on training our technicians—to be sure they are prepared to diagnose and fix virtually any type of propane appliance in your home.
So if your gas appliance needs a repair, the only “tool” you should pick up is the phone. One of our certified and highly trained technicians will come to your home, size up the situation and get your appliance safely repaired.
And if you plan to add more propane appliances to your home, please call us so our experts can ensure that your new equipment is installed properly.
If you smell gas, don’t take any chances. After only the quickest glance at the on/off knobs on your stove (to see if that’s the source of the problem), open a window or two as you quickly exit the house with your family.
Do not smoke or operate lights, appliances, telephones or cell phones.
Go to a safe location where you can report the problem to us.
You should also call 911 to report the leak.
