“Spring cleaning.” Two words full of ambition that – let’s face it – are easier said than done.

AmeriGas is here to help. With this simple yet resourceful list, you can focus on cleaning your propane appliances this spring to help extend their lifespan – and provide you with the top-tier performance you expect and deserve.

Propane Oven. To say no one likes cleaning their oven is the understatement of the year. And while things have gotten easier with the dawn of self-cleaning ovens, you still need to give love to the stovetop, burners, and more. Here’s a great step-by-step guide, complete with pictures, on how to make your oven immaculate.

Propane Water Heater. Your water heater needs routine maintenance, just like your furnace or your car. Sediment builds up inside the tank, limiting the water heater’s efficiency. This buildup forces the water heater to work harder – wasting time, energy, and money to heat the same amount of water. Look here to see how to maintain your water heater in a few simple steps.

Propane Furnace. To keep your furnace functioning at maximum efficiency, routine maintenance is crucial – it allows you to locate any blocks or leaks, which can be extremely costly if left undetected. Experts recommend having your furnace serviced annually by a professional.

Propane Fireplace. While propane does burn much cleaner than the alternatives, propane fireplaces still routinely require a cleaning. Over time, buildup gathers on the pilot of your fireplace. The more buildup, the harder it is for your fireplace to work – and the more it’ll cost you in the end. Luckily, cleaning your propane fireplace is relatively easy. Experts recommend doing it once a year.

Propane Grill
. Scrubbing down your grill grates after every use? That’s a great start, but it’s not enough. Take a quick look underneath your grates and you’ll see why. All that buildup inside your grill isn’t just gross – it’s dangerous. And what’s worse, it’s messing with the taste of your food! Luckily, deep-cleaning your grill is pretty simple and only takes about 15 minutes. And you should do it at least once or twice a year.
