How to Prep Your Propane Home for Fall

Now that fall is here, it’s time to think about what you can do to get your home and propane appliances ready for colder weather. There’s often more to it than simply refilling your propane tank, and Keystone Propane is here to give you some great tips on how to prep your propane home for fall. Below are just a few suggestions to get your home and appliances winter-ready.

Propane Tank Refills

If your propane tank is at 20% or less, it’s definitely time to call for a refill. Waiting for late October to fill your tank can leave you unprepared in the event we have an early cold snap as we often do here in Northeastern PA. Check your gauge and give us a call today so you and your family are ready for whatever comes your way.

Furnace Maintenance

Don’t assume your furnace is in good working order. Give your heating system a good once over to make sure everything will run properly when you need it to.

Gas Stove Review

Did you know that the color of your propane gas stove’s flame can indicate whether or not it may need to be serviced? It’s true! The color you want is blue, and if your flame is yellow (or any other color) it’s a sign that the burners may need to be adjusted or that your air inlets are clogged.

Water Heater Tank Maintenance

Sediments can easily build up inside your water heater tank and cause all sorts of problems. One of the best ways to avoid this is by draining your tank regularly. After releasing just a few gallons, the water should run clear as a sign that your tank is sediment-free.

Propane Grill Storage

It’s important to protect your grill during the winter months, but don’t forget to make sure you clean it before putting it away for this season. Burn off any remaining residue, wash it with soapy warm water and you’re good to go.
