Keep Your Propane Appliances in Top Shape

When it comes to servicing your home heating equipment, Parker Oil Company are the ones to call! However, it’s not enough to have us service your equipment in order to prevent any issues with your propane system, we also need your help with keeping an eye on your propane-fueled appliances!

Help your appliances “breathe” by checking the vents of your appliances to ensure that flue gases can easily flow to the outdoors, and clearing away any insect or bird nests from any vents. Also, clear the area around your appliances so plenty of air can reach the burner for proper combustion.

Do not try to modify or repair valves, regulators, connectors, controls, or other appliance and cylinder/tank parts. Doing so creates the risk of a gas leak. Take note of any damaged components you may notice, and let us know the next time we’re in your home.

Have older appliance connectors inspected. If you have an appliance that is more than 20 years old, have a qualified Parker Oil Company technician inspect the connector.

Flammable vapors are a safety hazard! The pilot light on your propane appliance can ignite vapors from gasoline, paint thinners, and other flammable liquids. Be sure to store and use such liquids outdoors or in an area containing no propane appliances.

Don’t risk it! If you cannot operate any part of your propane system, or you notice that an appliance or other device isn’t working properly, be sure to call Parker Oil Company for assistance. Don’t ignore any issues, even if you’re unsure if something is in fact an issue.

Only a qualified Parker Oil Company technician has the training to keep your propane system in working order. If you have any questions or concerns about the condition of your propane system, don’t hesitate to contact us online and schedule a service call.
