Whatever type of propane appliance you have powering your home, properly maintaining your appliances is essential to keeping them running safely, more efficiently, and longer.
When it comes to maintenance of your propane-powered appliances, it’s always best to leave it to the experts. AmeriGas is by your side with troubleshooting, tips, maintenance techs, and support to help you keep your appliances running their best.
Certain propane appliances require that gases be vented to the outdoors in order to keep the air in your home safe. Debris from storms, insect or animal nests, and snow or ice can sometimes block or build up in the flue, preventing proper ventilation. We’ll check for obstructions as part of your yearly maintenance.
Certain appliances require “breathing room” to ensure that plenty of air reaches the burner. Obstructions can prevent proper combustion and increase the risk of safety hazards. Always keep an eye out to make sure the areas surrounding your appliances are clear, and never store combustible materials near your appliances.
One of the first and most important things to do in propane appliance maintenance is to check for leaks. We’ll make sure that all your propane lines and connectors are in good shape and that your appliances are hooked up properly. We will perform a leak check if something has changed in the system, if your system is out of gas or if we suspect a leak.
