Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I suspect a gas leak?

Turn off the gas supply at the propane tank if possible and contact Ressler Propane.

Can I bury a propane tank on my property?

Yes. Ressler Propane offers 250, 500, and 1,000 gallon underground propane tanks. Burying a tank is a convenient way to store propane on your property, and because propane is a non-pollutant, there is no risk of soil contamination. Learn more about underground propane tanks.

Should I turn off the pilot light on my propane gas fireplace during the summer?

Although leaving the pilot on during the summer will use several gallons of propane each month, it does help to keep dust and insects out of the fireplace, as well as keeping metal parts dry and rust free, which can result in helping to prevent costly repairs.

Is propane a convenient fuel?

Yes. Propane can easily be compressed into a liquid for convenient transportation and storage. When at the point of use the flammable vapors “boil” off in the tank and are distributed to appliances via the gas piping system. Learn more about the convenience of propane.

Is propane a safe fuel?

Yes, in properly maintained and operated systems, propane is completely safe. Learn more about propane safety.

Does my propane heater need to be vented?

Can I save money by switching to a propane gas water heater?
