If you have home delivery of propane, your company has probably completed a “Gas Check” on your system. A Gas Check is a safety inspection of the entire propane delivery system. This inspection checks for leaks, inspects all propane appliances, and ensures that everything is up to code and in a safe operating condition.
Most insurance companies now require Gas Checks to be completed on any new propane account. This includes all situations where new homeowners or tenants move into a home, or anytime a customer switches from one company to another. Even if your previous company had performed the inspection, by regulation the new company must complete one as well. While this may seem like an unnecessary duplication, this process does ensure everything is operating safely and limits liability to the new company should anything happen.
At Acme Fuel, if a new customer goes on Automatic Fuel Delivery, which I discussed in the last article, we will waive the $99 fee. If the customer only wants to call for their fuel or shop for prices, we do apply the $99 fee; this way we at least recoup a portion of the cost of conducting the inspection.
As always, if you have any questions or would like to sign up for service, give us a call at 360-943-1133 or check the website at www.acmefuel.com.
