FOR YOUR SAFETY, PROPANE HAS AN ODOR ADDED SO YOU CAN DETECT LEAKS.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS, OR SUSPECT A LEAK
Some people may have difficulty smelling propane due to their age (older people may have a less sensitive sense of smell); a medical condition; or the effects of medication, alcohol, tobacco, or drugs. Consider purchasing a propane gas detector as an additional measure of security.
Odor fade is an unintentional reduction in the concentration of the odor of propane, making it more difficult to smell. Although rare, this can be caused by the presence of air, water, or rust in the cylinder. New and reconditioned small cylinders that sit too long before being filled are prone to internal rust when moisture and air get inside.
RELIGHTING PILOT LIGHTS
We strongly recommend that for safety reasons you avoid unnecessary risks by having a qualified, trained professional relight your pilots especially if your tank has run out of gas. Please contact your propane supplier or qualified HVAC technician. So, if you are our customer, call TruFlame Gas Company.
