Frequently Asked Questions

In Case of Emergency

How can I detect a leak?

Propane is easy to detect due to its smell of rotten eggs, which will arise if the tank is almost empty or if there is a leak. In either case, go through the following steps:

 

  1. Put out every item connected to tobacco products or any uncovered flames. Do not use matches or other ignitors, including electrical switches, flashlights, phones, and cellphones.
  2. Open all doors and windows, turn off all gas tank valves and appliances.
  3. Immediately evacuate the facility.
  4. Call your Propane Levac Service Agent at 1 800-465-4927, 24-hour service.

What you Should Know

You Can Never Be Too Informed!

Your energy consumption represents a good portion of your budget.
Here are a few Q&A questions that will help you better manage your use.

Many factors will influence your energy consumption. If you use propane as fuel for heating your house, the size, the window frame sealing and the all-around insulation will have a major affect on your consumption. The number of individuals living in the house, the ideal temperature for your comfort and your daily life habits will also have a considerable influence. In fact, each client is unique, so a full assessment of your needs administered by one of our representatives is a must!

Moreover, your equipment’s efficiency, be it a furnace, a fireplace, a water heater or the cooking range, may all affect your propane consumption.

Even if you are on a scheduled delivery, Propane Levac recommends you keep a close tab on the percentage of propane left in your tank. In order to do so, simply lift the tank’s lid: you will find a measuring scale indicating the percentage of propane left. If it is at 30% or less, contact us to request a delivery.

The tank is full when it reads 80% since we need to leave room for gas expansion.

Inspections are undertaken to ensure everyone’s security, as well as safeguard compliance with propane storage and handling regulations.

A comprehensive inspection consists of verifying your entire propane installation, including all appliances within your property, the lines, the connections to the tank, and the tank itself. The technician will perform a series of examinations to confirm that there are no leaks, among other things. The legislation is designed to ascertain that all systems meet the Code requirements, and are therefore operating in safe conditions.

As a minimum, comprehensive inspection reports are required every ten (10) years, and are strongly recommended when adding new appliances to the system. Homeowners are subject to the requirements of the CAN/CSAB149.2 Propane Storage and Handling Code and the CAN/CSA B149.1 Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code.

We must validate the professional licensure of all technicians. Please contact us at 800-465-4927  to obtain a referral for a preferred technician within your area, or to confirm that the technician you have hired is licenced. When contacting the technician, inform them that you are booking an appointment for a ten-year comprehensive inspection of your propane installation.

If you leave your home for a few weeks, you probably already know about lowering your heat command and asking a friend or a neighbour to keep an eye on your property. For safety reasons, it is the same for propane. Find out the percentage of propane left in your tank and contact us to let us know if you are leaving. We will then align our delivery with your temporary needs. Make sure you have access to your bills and are able to make payments in order to avoid delays in your next delivery. The person who plows your driveway should also clean the access path to the tank, simplifying the task for your Delivery Agent. Using precaution allows you to get away from your home worry-free.

Spread the word: propane is one of the safest fuels out there. Some of its features, as well as the regulations with which its equipment must comply, the training and the handling of the equipment, all make propane safer than gas, diesel or compressed natural gas (CNG). Proper use and handling allows you to benefit from the advantages of propane inside as well as outside.

Know that it is important to handle your equipment and the propane tanks in a properly cautious and safe manner.

White is the most common colour for propane tanks. Because the colour of the tank affects the gas pressure, white reflects heat-generating light away to avoid overpressure.

Because propane must be delivered by truck and this process requires access to the tank, some rules apply to make our delivery simple. Make sure to clear out the access to the tank, including the parking area and steps. Clear a safe path for your delivery agent to have easy access to the tank. Remember that they must perform many deliveries a day and that snow lumps may become major obstacles!

sleep tight with

propane and carbon monoxide detectors

They are a cost-efficient way to improve safety and detect gas leaks. Carbon monoxide, or CO, is a toxic yet colorless and odorless gas.
Propane appliances and devices, like every other fuel-operated appliance, represent a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if they are not properly set up,
used or maintained. The area also has to be well ventilated.
