What Happens If I Run Out Of Propane Gas?

propane delivery north carolinaIt’s never a good idea to let your propane tank run out of gas—not just because it will interrupt your heating service (which will cost you money to restart), but also because it creates significant safety risks for your propane-powered home.

If You Run Out Of Propane

Here are four things that could happen if you let your propane tank run out. As you’ll see, it’s simply not worth the risk:

  1. Appliance pilot lights will go out if your propane tank runs out—a problem that can be dangerous if not handled properly.
  2. Air and moisture that enters an empty tank creates rust buildup, which can mask the rotten-egg smell of propane and make it more difficult to detect a leak.
  3. If you run out of propane and leave a valve or gas line open, a leak can occur when the system is recharged.
  4. An out-of-gas call requires you to hire a qualified technician to perform a leak test (which you pay for) to meet federal code requirements for propane use.
