With the warmer weather arriving here in the Seacoast Region, we’re itching to get outside and have some fun after a rough winter.
We’re also having to tackle spring cleaning in our homes. While you make your task list, we have some things related to your propane appliances that you need to do.
Be ready for grilling weeknight dinners and having friends and family over for a cookout by doing a thorough cleaning of your propane grill. Here’s what to do.
Because the heating season is winding down and air conditioning season hasn’t started, our service schedule is more open, so you’ll be able to schedule the tune-up at a time that best fits your schedule. If our service technicians spot a problem, it’s easier to fix now.
You likely gave your propane oven a workout this winter, between the Thanksgiving turkey, weeknight casseroles, and the baked treats you were inspired to make after binge-watching The Great British Baking Show. If it’s been a while since you’ve cleaned your oven, end the procrastination and get it done. Follow the directions on this blog to do a proper job.
Vent blockage can dramatically reduce the flow of air to the dryer. Not only can this drive up your energy costs, but it can also create a fire hazard. Clean your propane clothes dryer’s exhaust fan using a brush made for this job. You can find one at your local home improvement store or online.
This task is necessary to prevent the buildup of sediment in your water heater tank. Sediment forms when minerals in your water supply harden into sand or grit; over time, a buildup of this material can insulate the heating element of your water heater, decreasing its effectiveness. It can also lead to corrosion of the tank, causing it to fail. Watch this video to see how it’s done. You can avoid this chore by upgrading to a propane tankless water heater, and get endless hot water on-demand.
