Propane does so much to make your summer better.
Grilling up easy weeknight dinners or burgers and brats for a crowd is easy as pie with a propane BBQ grill. Propane firepits, deck and patio heaters, pool and spa heaters, outdoor fireplaces, and insect traps make your back yard a wonderful place to relax or entertain.
However, you need to know how to use propane safely. We’ve put together some key tips so you have peace of mind when using propane outdoor appliances this summer.
Make sure you have enough propane for your grill, firepit, and other outdoor propane appliances by getting full cylinders at one of our propane cylinder exchange locations.
Once you bring your cylinders home, you need to store them safely. Always store propane cylinders outdoors. NEVER store them indoors, or in a garage, carport, shed, or sunporch.
It is preferable that you store cylinders on a hard surface, like concrete or stone. Do not store them on bare ground, as that can lead to the cylinder rusting. Instead, put them off the ground on a wood pallet.
These grilling safety best practices help prevent your cooking from ending with a trip to the emergency room.
