Winter Propane Tips
Our Minnesota winter is here, and the heat is on! If you’re one of our propane customers, or even if you’re considering propane to warm your home and make it more efficient, now is a good time to make preparations for the next storm.
Here are a few handy tips to hold off the worst from Mother Nature and keep your home warm and safe:
  • Maintain adequate supply: Call Central Counties today at Atwater: 320-974-8868 or Litchfield: 320-693-2821 to fill your propane tank if you haven’t already.
  • Use energy wisely: Use energy conservatively by setting your programmable thermostat to as low as is comfortable – possibly a few degrees cooler at night and when nobody is home. Close off any rooms that don’t need to be heated.
  • Keep your propane tank clear: A clear path to your tank helps the delivery driver get to your tank easily, fill it quickly, and move onto the next customer.
  • If you smell gas, take the right steps. Immediately put out all smoking materials and other open flames. Get everyone away from the home or area where you suspect gas is leaking. In case of emergency call 911. Do not return to the area until a propane provider, emergency responder, or qualified technician gives the OK.
  • Propane cylinders: Do not store propane cylinders inside.
