During winter when temperatures are colder, it's possible for a small amount of propane to escape the regulator when an appliance or furnace in the home requests propane from the tank. A momentary propane odor is normal at this time. If the odor persists, please follow the safety instructions in this section under “If You Smell Gas.”

In the event of snow or ice, customers should clear heavy snow and ice from regulators, regulator vents, piping, tubing and valves. Use a broom rather than a shovel to avoid damaging any components. Also clear the walkway and area around the tank so that Blue Flame Propane personnel will have ready access to the tank.
