Balancing My HVAC System

A few months ago, I realized that something was wrong with my HVAC system. It seemed like no matter what I did, some rooms were hot and some rooms were simply getting too much cooled air. Instead of trying to troubleshoot my air conditioner on my own, I called out a professional HVAC repairman for help. They went through each room of my house when the system was running to measure the outgoing airflow and to check for issues. They discovered some serious balance problems, which they resolved after running a few extra lines. Check out this blog to learn more about HVAC in general.

Planning To Use Propane To Heat Your Home This Winter? 2 Tips To Keep The Tank In Good Shape

If you are planning to use propane this winter to heat your house, the propane company will deliver a tank that is full of propane to your home. When the tank becomes low on propane, the company will bring more propane to you and refill the tank. Because you have never used propane before, you need to learn how to keep the storage tank in good shape. Below are three tips on how you can do this so your tank will last longer.

Inspect the Tank

Periodically inspect the propane tank. If you have appliances connected to the tank, you need to disconnect them before you do anything. Purchase a gas detector at a home improvement store. If you cannot find one call your propane tank company and they can tell you where to purchase one. The detector will come with full instructions on how to use it. This tool will tell you if there is any propane gas leaking from your tank. If there is, immediately contact the propane tank company.

If the propane tank is small enough for you to move, move it away from your home immediately. Turn the knob to turn the tank off and do not turn it back on. You will have to have the tank replaced.

Inspect the tank itself and look for any type of cracks. If you notice any kind of damage, the tank will have to be replaced.

Store the Tank Properly

If your propane tank is small and you need to store it, you need to make sure you store it properly. For example, never put the propane tank in an enclosed area, such as a garage or a shed. Instead, store the tank outside. You can purchase a cover for it to keep it protected.

Always store the propane tank upright and never on its side. This will help prevent propane from leaking out if there is a problem.

Check the rubber tubing on the propane tank and if you see any kind of damage, you need to replace the tubing. You can purchase the tubing at home improvement or hardware stores. This is easy to replace so you can do it on your own.

Talk with the propane tank company about this information. They can give you many more details about the information above. The propane tank company can also give you more tips on keep the tank in good shape and to keep you and your family safe.
