Whenever you are grilling outdoors, there are several things to keep in mind. Do the following:

  • Make sure your propane tank is kept outdoors with open air surrounding it.
  • Never keep your propane tank indoors or in a closed or confined space. Always keep it in an upright position.
  • Be sure that your propane tank is not positioned too closely to the exterior of your home.
  • Keep it away from any bushes or shrubbery that are in your landscape.
  • A quick spot check of the tank itself is crucial before you begin grilling.
  • Never use a tank with any physical abnormalities or deficiencies.
  • If you notice any abnormalities in your propane tank, do not attempt to make any alterations yourself.

Our residential propane experts can ensure that your propane tank is operating efficiently, so it can serve you all summer long.

When it comes to your propane, it is also important to remember that you should never keep your propane tank in an enclosed space, or anywhere it is exposed to extremely high temperatures.
