Propane is a popular fuel used to heat homes, generate hot water, and operate appliances, which is why propane system safety is so important. As with any fuel-related system, a little safety goes a long way. Here are some basic propane system safety tips every homeowner should know.

If you smell a propane leak or suspect one, go outside and get a safe distance away. Once you’ve left the area, call your propane provider and report the problem. Wait for a qualified technician to arrive and inspect your propane system and declare the area safe before reentering your home.

Never use an outdoor propane appliance or propane-powered generator indoors. Doing so threatens the safety of you and your home due to risk of fire and release of toxic gases.

Visually inspect your propane system components routinely, especially following a severe storm in which they may have sustained damage. If you notice your propane tank or other system components are damaged, call your propane provider. You can also turn off the propane supply if it’s safe to do so. To turn off the propane supply, open the dome-shaped cover on the top of the tank, locate the valve, and turn it clockwise to close the line. If you are not sure where this valve is located, wait for a qualified technician to arrive.

If you or a technician turned off the propane supply, do not reopen the line yourself. Once the supply line has been closed for safety and inspection purposes, it should only be reopened by a qualified technician to ensure conditions are safe.

Schedule a professional propane system inspection at least once a year. A professional inspection includes an evaluation of the tank, regulators, and outdoor piping as well as leak checks of the piping system and any propane appliances, including your furnace, water heater, and clothes dryer.
