Tips for using propane during winter

Christmas maybe behind us, but winter is here to stay for a few more months – and that means an increase of propane usage. At Modern Gas, we are committed to providing our customers with the best services and products. We operate according to carefully enforced rules, regulations and procedures, which are monitored by our trained experts.

Propane is Eco-friendly, and it is readily available in the United States. This makes it the most universal of residential fuels. While propane is safe, reliable and clean, there are a few safety measures to be aware of. It is important to educate yourself and your family on the basic safety tips of propane.

Safety Tips For When You Smell Gas

  • Immediately shut off all flames or spark-producing appliances.
  • Leave the area immediately.
  • Shut off the gas.
  • Report the leak to Modern Gas by calling 229-435-6116 or call 9-1-1 if a technician is not readily available.
  • Do not return to the area until a qualified service technician determines that it is safe.
  • Know the symptoms. While you can smell propane, carbon monoxide is an odorless gas. Be aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning which include headache, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath and nausea. Call 9-1-1 immediately if anyone in your family exhibits symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Maintain your appliances with regular inspections by our trained technicians. Do not try to modify or repair any part of your propane gas appliance – leave that to us!
  • Only attempt to relight a pilot light if you are properly trained. Call Modern Gas to perform services or maintenance to your appliance.
  • Don’t run out of gas! It is important that your propane tank remain filled for reliability, efficiency and safety.
