Prepare Your Home Now For The Winter


All regular readers of our blog know we’ve been stressing the importance of preparing for the upcoming cold months now, when winter is the last thing on your mind.  This proper planning can’t be stressed enough and will ensure you and your family are ready to take on Old Man Winter and anything he attempts to throw at you!


In our efforts to help our customers, here’s a quick checklist of what you can do now so you’re not left out in the cold!

Ensure You Have Plenty of Propane

Contact us and discuss scheduling of propane delivery for your tank. Regularly scheduled deliveries will help ensure you have enough propane available for residential use in the event of a winter storm that may make some roads inaccessible.  We will also be happy to discuss payment options as well! These programs can really help to make your propane utility bills more manageable.


Look Into Owning A Propane Generator

Experts are predicting a severe winter this year, but you won’t need to worry about any power interruptions if you install a propane generator!  Keep your family safe and comfortable no matter what inclement weather comes your way.  It’s also a good idea to consider a propane-powered fireplace to heat your home. As a service to our customers, here at ThompsonGas we are able to offer great prices on the best brand name fireplaces including Mendota, RH Peterson and Regency products.


Safety First! Install Gas Detectors In Your Home

For additional security, consider installing propane gas detectors and carbon monoxide detectors throughout your home.  This extra level of security will provide peace of mind for everyone in your family, being constantly assured that your home is safe of any harmful gas leaks.  Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation, proper location and maintenance.  If you have any questions regarding gas detectors, you can always contact us!


Have Your Propane Systems Inspected Before Winter

Before the beginning of the heating season, it is suggested to have a qualified service technician inspect all of your propane appliances and your propane system. When your appliances are functioning as efficiently as possible, you can not only conserve fuel, you will also save money.
