summer propane use pennsylvaniaYou may not think about propane quite as much during the summer as you do during heating season, but you still have a propane tank installed near your home – and if you own a propane water heater, pool heater, built-in grill, or any other propane appliance, you’re using the gas year-round.

The good news is that propane is a perfectly safe and great way to keep you comfortable and enjoying your indoor and outdoor space in all seasons. But like any energy source, you have to be prepared in case the unexpected happens.

Here are six propane safety reminders for you as we head into the heart of summer 2021.

  1. Teach everyone in the house how to shut off your propane supply from the tank. If you’re not sure how to do that, contact us.
  2. Teach everyone to recognize the rotten egg smell of a propane leak – and what they need to do if they smell it.
  3. NEVER use outdoor propane equipment (grills, portable generators, etc.) indoors.
  4. Install carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in your home, following the manufacturer’s instructions about location and maintenance.
  5. If a storm is forecast:
    • Make sure you have enough propane to last a week in case propane deliveries are delayed. If you have a whole-house propane backup generator, be sure to consider your fuel needs for that, too.
    • Listen for instructions from local authorities;
    • Use care when clearing debris from on and around your tank – as well as in chimneys, and flues – to reduce the risk of damaging your equipment and creating a potential CO hazard.
  6. If any of your propane appliances have been damaged, contact us right away for service and repairs. Remember: if you shut down your gas supply, you must, by law, contact a licensed professional to restart your system.

Koppy’s Propane is here to keep your family safe and comfortable all year round – Contact us today if you have any questions about propane safety in your Pennsylvania home!

propane autopayment pennsylvaniaWe’ve got a lot on our mind these days – even more than usual in our hectic lives – and with all that mental activity, it’s easy to forget simple things like paying bills and scheduling fuel deliveries.

Fortunately, Koppy’s can take at least some of that load off with convenient and FREE services that can help your life run a bit more smoothly.

Here are five things you can do to simplify your bill paying and fuel management in the months to come.

  1. Use our MyFuelPortal customer account site – Doing business with Koppy’s has never been easier – just log in to get information about your services, check your account, order fuel, schedule service, and more. Remember to have your account number or password ready.
  2. Switch to a Budget Payment Plan – Choose Koppy’s Budget Payment Plan and make your bills more predictable in 2021/22. The Plan spreads your fuel costs out over 12 manageable installments using estimates based on your past use, so you’ll avoid paying for most of your fuel during the four short months of winter. There are no fees or financing charges for this service.
  3. Prebuy your fuel – With our Prebuy fuel buying option, you’ll lock in a preseason price for all the fuel you buy in advance. While we can’t guarantee that pre-buying fuel will save you money, fuel prices almost always rise as demand increases later in the season. Prebuy is offered before October 1, but the closer you get to heating season, the higher the price tends to be.
  4. Sign up for AutoPay – With Autopay, you’ll never have to think about paying your bill – or paying late fees – again. We’ll set up your account either through your bank (ACH) or with your credit card (MC, Visa, Discover).
  5. Go paperless – Say goodbye to bulky physical records with paperless billing from Koppy’s Propane. All your bills will be sent to your electronically, where they can be safely stored in email folders (don’t worry – we keep them your records on file, so if you ever need them just give us a call). You’ll also help us cut down on paper waste, ink, delivery fuel, and other materials needed to get your bill to you and back to us.

Take advantage of convenient services from Koppy’s Propane that will make the rest of 2021 go a little easier. Contact us today to learn more about propane delivery in eastern PA!

furnace repair pennsylvaniaIf you have an older propane gas furnace, one problem you may run into over the course of a long heating season is a burned-out pilot light.

The primary cause of pilot light outage is a draft (see below). But other, more significant problems could also be causing the pilot light to go out, including:

Why Pilot Lights Go Out

However, as we said earlier, most pilot lights simply blow out. Luckily, this is one of the easiest problems to fix.

When Your Pilot Light Blows Out

If your pilot light is out, try the following before you contact us to service your furnace. PLEASE NOTE: Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions if they say something different than below.

check propane supply pennsylvania

After a slow start, winter 2020/21 has really hit its stride here in Pennsylvania (as we predicted in our last blog), and your heating system has been hard at work protecting your family from temperature drops caused by 2021’s appearance of the polar vortex.

These sudden dips can cause your heating system to use propane gas more quickly than you anticipated – something you’ll have to be especially mindful of if you’re a Will Call customer.

In other words, keep an eye on that propane gas gauge! If you’re new to propane or haven’t had to read your gauge before, here are the basics:

The most important thing about reading your propane gas gauge, though, is to remember not wait for the last minute to schedule your propane delivery – especially when temperatures are low or dropping. Contact us for a fill-up when your gauge reads no less than 25 percent full; that will give us enough time to get to you before you run out of gas.

If you do experience a propane run-out, don’t panic – call Koppy’s right away for emergency service. We’ll get your tank topped off, then performed safety leak and pressure test as required by law so you can get back to normal in your southeastern PA home.

If you want to make things easier on yourself this winter – and year-round, if you have a house full of propane appliances – switch from Will Call to automatic propane delivery from Koppy’s Propane. Here’s how it works:

propane delivery pennsylvaniaWe’ve had a mild winter so far here in Pennsylvania, but that could soon change pretty drastically as we could be welcoming our old friend the polar vortex (remember him)?

Yes, that’s the same polar vortex that single-digit lows and below-zero windchills for much of the state in 2019, and record lows for the region in 2017.

Here are some key things to consider as we head into our first winter weather challenges of 2021:

  1. Make sure you have enough propane. Keep in mind that a propane furnace typically burns about one gallon of fuel per hour when it’s running, and that it will be running almost constantly during a polar vortex to keep you warm. Propane space heaters and fireplaces use about half that amount per hour, which can add up quickly. Please don’t wait until the last minute to order propane! Order propane when your tank is no less than one-quarter full.
  2. Don’t forget your generator. If you have a propane backup generator, make sure you have enough propane for that, too – keeping in mind that it uses about 2-3 gallons per hour, depending on the number of appliances you are powering. If you haven’t had it serviced yet this year, strongly consider it – if you have, be sure to test-run the generator before severe weather arrives
  3. Mind your space heater safety. If you use supplemental heaters (fireplaces, space heaters, etc.), please keep the following in mind:
    • Keep children, pets and things that can burn at least 3 feet away from heating equipment, including propane space heaters and propane hearths.
    • Never leave a fireplace or space heater unattended; turn off portable space heaters every time you leave the room or go to sleep.
    • Always place portable space heater on a level, hard and nonflammable surface – never on rugs or carpets or near bedding or drapes.
    • If your space heater is a direct vent model, make sure vents are cleared after a significant snowfall to prevent exhaust gases from entering your home.
    • Never use a propane cooking range or oven to heat your home.
    • Have all propane heating equipment inspected and serviced if you haven’t done it already.
    • Check batteries and test all propane and CO detectors, if you haven’t already.
  4. Help us deliver to as many customers as possible. Please clear at least an 18” path to your propane tank and any surfaces that lead to it, including your driveway. On delivery day, make sure someone is home or accessible by phone, and make sure all gates are opened and pets are secured.

Stay safe and warm with propane heat this winter – delivered by the pros at Koppy’s Propane. Contact us today to learn more about propane deliveries in southeastern PA!

gas log sets pennsylvaniaIt’s going to be a long winter for all of us this year – one where we’ll have to spend a lot of time indoors dealing with far more than the usual winter stresses.

In other words, it’s the perfect winter to spend A LOT of time in front of your fireplace.

The problem with doing that is that starting, maintaining, and cleaning up after a fire takes time and effort that you might not be willing to invest for a few hours of pleasure. If that’s the case, and you still want to enjoy the warm, healing glow of a fire, a propane gas log set could be perfect for you.

A set of propane gas logs offers an efficient, convenient alternative to burning wood if you have an existing masonry fireplace that doesn’t work particularly well, or if you just don’t want to spend as much time working on your fire as you do enjoying it.

Advantages Of Propane Fireplaces

Choose propane gas logs and you’ll:

  1. Minimize remodeling costs – Propane gas logs can be used in your current fireplace, so no additional construction is needed (of course, if you don’t have a fireplace already, we can always install a new propane-powered one for you).
  2. Lower bills – A new propane fireplace insert is about four times more efficient than one that burns wood, so you’ll spend less money to keep it running.
  3. Stay safer – Open fires always have their dangers – from falling wood to flying embers and blown-back smoke. Creosote buildup in improperly maintained chimneys can also start fires. All of these problems are eliminated with gas logs if you simply get them professionally maintained once a year.
  4. Enjoy more fire time – Push a button and voila – instant fire. Push it again and the fire’s out, with no waiting for embers to die down.
  5. Shrink your carbon footprint – Less fuel needed means less environmental impact. Propane also burns cleaner than wood, so there are fewer carbon emissions – especially particulates – with a propane fireplace insert.

propane home appliances pennsylvaniaAbout nine percent of Pennsylvania homeowners use propane to heat their homes – less than one-third the number that use electricity for that purpose. But are those electricity users getting the most heating bang for their buck?

Like electricity, propane gas is versatile enough to power almost any appliance. The difference is that propane will almost always do a better job of it.

A propane water heater, for example, will save you about 30 percent on your energy bills compared to an electric water heater while providing much faster recovery times. You’ll save even more energy when you choose a propane tankless water heater.

Propane Appliance Advantages

But better efficiency is just benefit of choosing propane appliances. Consider these propane advantages:

As you can see, you’ll save money and get better performance when you choose propane appliances. You’ll also help the environment, since as much as two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted en route to your home.

Propane – a smarter way to power your home comfort appliances. To learn more, or to get a FREE, no obligation estimate on propane appliance installation in central PA, contact Koppy’s Propane today.

gas fireplaces pennsylvania

Most of us love to gather around a hearth, especially on cold days and nights here in central and southeastern Pennsylvania. But sometimes the work required to get that fire roaring – not to mention the clean-up work afterward – keeps us from enjoying our woodburning fireplace as much we might otherwise.

The good news is you can get that evening by the fire at the flip of a switch, from the comfort of your easy chair – thanks to the power of propane gas.

Why A Propane Fireplace?

Today’s propane fireplaces and propane gas log sets offer:

Propane Fireplace And Gas Log Installation

If you don’t have a fireplace yet, consider installing a propane hearth – it’s more affordable than you think. We’ll help you choose an option that’s right for you, then install it quickly and safely so you can enjoy that dream hearth you’ve always wanted.

If you already have a masonry fireplace, consider swapping your wood logs for a propane log set, which installs inside you current mantle. You’ll get the warm glow of a fire with realistic ceramic logs in a range of finishes, plus the same benefits of a stand-alone hearth!
