Running out of propane is a serious no-no that can cause all kinds of problems — and potential dangers — for you in your propane-powered home.
In fact, one of the best ways to practice propane safety is to make sure you never run out of propane gas!
Consider the following consequences of letting your propane tank run out:
- If a valve or gas line is open when the propane supply runs out, a leak can occur when the system is recharged with propane.
- Air and moisture that penetrate an empty propane tank can cause rust build-up inside the tank. Rust decreases the concentration of the odor of propane, making it more difficult to smell.
- Any pilot lights on your appliances will go out if your propane tank runs out -– a problem that can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly.
- Any interruption in service, including an out-of-gas call, requires that a qualified technician perform a leak test–paid for by you–to meet federal code requirements (National Fuel Gas Code Section 4.2.1/4.2).
