Under some circumstances, you may not smell a propane leak. Propane gas detectors sound an alarm if they sense
propane in the air. They can provide an additional measure of security. You should consider the purchase of one or
more detectors for your home.
Guidelines regarding propane gas detectors:
- Buy only units that are listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
- Follow the manufacturer's instructions regarding installation and maintenance.
- Never ignore the smell of propane, even if no detector is sounding an alarm.
