Propane is an odorless gas. An odorant has been added so you can smell it if it begins to escape or an appliance malfunctions. Be sure you and all members of your household are familiar with the distinctive odor of propane gas. Ask your delivery man for assistance. If you smell gas inside or outside the home, or hear gas escaping from an appliance, eliminate and prevent all sources of ignition, including the use of matches and the operation of electrical switches, then evacuate your home. Turn off the service value (flat silver handle) on the propane tank if it is safe to do so and call us immediately.
