These are valuable guides for homeowners and property managers in regions with heavy snowfall, and for the propane marketers who serve them.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
A beautiful snowfall this time of year may be fun, but accumulated snow and ice can damage propane tanks, pipes, and other equipment and affect the supply of fuel to homes.
A new brochure from the Propane Education & Research Council, “Essential Propane Safety Information for High Snowfall Areas,” shows homeowners how they can help keep their propane system running smoothly and keep their house warm when snow piles up.
The brochure provides concise directions on what to do before, during, and after a major snowstorm — steps like marking tanks and regulators, keeping enough propane in the tank, and brushing snow and ice away from propane equipment. It also advises owners of homes that may be unoccupied during snowstorms to designate a responsible party, such as a property manager or a snow removal service, to monitor the propane system regularly while they are away.
“These are valuable guides for homeowners and property managers in regions with heavy snowfall, and for the propane marketers who serve them,” said Roy Willis, PERC president and CEO. “Get this important safety information now to help ensure that propane systems continue operating safely and efficiently, no matter the weather.”
The brochure comes in two online versions. The first is a print-ready file that a professional printer would use. The second version is a website-ready file designed for homeowners who want to read it online or print it at home. Propane marketers and property managers may want to add the second version of the brochure to company websites and send it to customers by email.
This winter, “Essential Propane Safety Information for High Snowfall Areas” is helping homeowners stay safe, stay warm, and stay on top of high snowfall.
