Summer Safety Tips for Propane Grilling

As temperatures rise and family and friends come together to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, grilling outdoors can provide the perfect combination of playing host and feeding the family, all while still enjoying the warm summer air here in Northwest Texas.  As any good griller knows, though, using a propane gas grill is not a task for any amateur cook, and should not be taken lightly. In the excitement of it all, it is still crucial to remember that safety comes first. With the help of these safety guidelines from your North Texas propane company, you can ensure that you and your loved ones enjoy a fun, safe holiday to remember.

  1. It may seem obvious, but propane tanks should always be kept outdoors, in fresh, open air, and always in an upright position.  Make sure to keep your grill within a safe distance from the exterior wall of your home and never near any bushes, shrubbery, or flammable materials.
  2. Before lighting your tank, it is always key to do a quick spot-check, searching for leaks or any physical abnormalities you may notice on the tank itself.
  3. Never make any modifications or alterations to the tank yourself. Our helpful team of tank installation and maintenance professionals will be more than happy to assist you in any of your propane needs. It’s what we’re here for!
  4. Refrain from smoking near your residential propane tank, and never use matches or lighters to check for leaks. In the case of fire, contact your local fire department immediately.
  5. Do not store your propane tank in any enclosed space, such as your car or truck, as this will expose it to high temperatures.
  6. If it is your first time grilling this summer, and your tank is feeling less than full, you might be in need of a cylinder exchange.

When it comes to propane grilling, use these simple safety tips before throwing on the first burger or hot dog. For any additional questions or comments, feel free to contact our Dallas propane experts today or schedule propane service online.

Propane Grills vs. Charcoal Grills

Propane Grills vs. Charcoal GrillsIf you’re a fan of the TV cartoon King of the Hill, you know it’s a running joke that Hank Hill, who sells propane and propane accessories for a living, absolutely despises the use of charcoal grills. One of Hill’s favorite’s sayings is “Taste the meat, not the heat.”

As we all prepare for the spring and firing up our barbecue pits, our Dallas TX propane gas experts at Northwest Propane are hoping you are choosing propane grills over charcoal grills. From an operational standpoint, both have their advantages, but when it comes to cleanliness, propane’s odorless, colorless gas is a favorite compared to charcoal briquettes and ash that can be extremely messy and more difficult to clean after cooking.

From a taste perspective, charcoal tends to add a distinct smoky flavor, whereas propane offers more of a natural taste. Propane grills, in addition, are faster cookers, which gives them an edge in the convenience category.

Hank Hill doesn’t work for us, but we definitely endorse propane grills over charcoal grills as he would. Let our Dallas TX propane gas experts assist you with more comparisons and contrasts between propane grills and charcoal grills. For additional information, call our Dallas propane dealers today, or visit us online.

Benefits of Propane Water Heaters

Propane Water HeaterIt’s been said that nearly a quarter of a homeowner’s energy costs in a month goes toward heating water in your home. How you heat your water has become very important, and our Dallas TX propane gas representatives are here to assist you with choosing your next water heater.

Propane water heaters are becoming more and more common among homeowners for a variety of reasons. These heaters are cost-efficient and very easy to install, and they have an endless supply, which cuts back on delivery of fuel. In comparison to electric water heaters, which heat water by electrifying it with submerged coils, propane heaters are designed with a burner at the tank’s bottom, basically heating water by igniting a flame with a pilot light.

While installation costs are expected to be higher with propane heaters, utility bills are expected to be cheaper in the course of a year. Electric heaters take longer to heat water, which results in higher bills on a monthly basis.

There are several benefits to owning propane water heaters, and our professionals are more than willing to provide all the information you are looking for. Give our Dallas propane gas company a call today, or visit us online for details.
