Never operate an outdoor appliance (a portable generator, for example) indoors, and never store a propane cylinder indoors.
Install carbon monoxide (CO) detectors on every level of your home. Change the batteries at least once a year, and change the detector once every five years.
If severe winter weather is approaching:
Check your propane levels, making sure you have enough to last at least a week in case propane deliveries are disrupted by road closures;
Follow the instructions of local authorities;
Clear snow and debris from vents, chimneys, and flues after a storm to reduce the risk of CO poisoning.
If you suspect that any of your propane appliances have been damaged by bad weather, contact us right away for service. And remember: if you shut down your gas supply, it must be restarted by a licensed professional!
