4 Great Reasons To Stock Up On Propane For Emergency Use

The Method of the day for Survivalists:

If you are thinking about stocking up on gasoline for use during an emergency it’s a tricky proposition at best. You have to to concerned about it’s short storage life, and fumes that could explode.

That’s why you may want to reconsider storing gas, and convert over to propane. Chances are you’re already storing propane if you use a gas barbecue grill. Let’s take a look at some great reasons to store propane.

There are 4 main benefits to using propane:

1.     Propane can be used for a whole lot of different things.  Propane of course fuels some barbecues, but it can also be used in portable stoves, and portable heaters.  Some engines, torches, residential central heating, fireplaces, and generators can run on propane.
2.     Propane is widely available and easy to use.
3.     Indefinite storage potential.
4.     Propane is convenient and easy to use.  Usually you just hook it up to whatever you’re fueling.  It is also considered to be very reliable.

(Propane is also the fuel used in hot air balloons!  If you want an additional emergency evacuation option, you could consider adding a hot air balloon to your preparations if you’re already storing propane.  Might as well, right?  I’m only kidding, of course, but this is my favorite fun fact about propane.)

Propane Safety Guidelines For The Home

Propane leaks smell like rotten eggs. Educate your family so they may recognized the smell.

If you smell a leak, evacuate the premises, and contact your local fire department, or propane supplier. When leaving the premises, do not alter any electrical outlets or light switches.

Propane leak detectors are available at your local hardware stores.

Know the layout of your gas services lines, especially if you are doing any type of landscaping or renovations.

If you suspect your gas appliance has been damaged by water or flooding, have a trained technician come out and service your system.

All furnaces should be cleaned regularly. Check with your propane retailer, and owners manual for cleaning instructions.

In case of sediment buildup in your propane fueled water heater, drain your tank until water runs clean.

Have your range serviced if the flames are not blue. Yellow flames indicate blockage to the air inlets, or an adjustment may be need to the burner. Contact a technician to service. Also, do not line your range with tin foil; it constricts air circulation.

Never use a gas range or grill to heat your home.
