If you have a propane tank, be sure you don’t damage it when clearing heavy snow. Do not push snow off the roof onto the propane tank. The weight of the snow can damage the pipes and fittings, causing gas leaks. When cleaning snow off the tank use a broom or brush instead of a shovel. Check the regulator vents on your propane system to be sure they are free of snow, ice, or water that could freeze. If a heavy snow is forecast, cover the regulator, relief valves, and fill valves with a protective dome cover that will keep out the snow ice and moisture but won’t block the valves. Prior to the storm mark the location of the tank with snow stakes that extend well above the anticipated snow depth. If your propane heat goes out during a snow storm call us at 610-593-5129.
