Everything You Need to Know About These Popular Propane Appliances

propane fireplaces virginia When it comes to adding warmth and charm without the mess or hassle of logs and embers, many people are discovering the ease and style of a gas fireplace. One thing that always surprises people is the realistic look and actual warmth of a gas fireplace. After all, this is no plastic log over a lightbulb! The gas logs in a gas fireplace are made from cement, ceramic or ceramic fiber blends that are carefully crafted and painted to look just like real wood logs. You can even specify a species of wood! So how do gas logs work? Those realistic-looking logs are fitted with small pipes that release gas, a lot like the burners on your stove.

Gas logs are made to withstand high heat and should last for five-to-ten years, depending on how much you use your gas fireplace, and if you keep up with maintenance.

But the best part about a gas fireplace is that you don’t need a chimney to use them. The pros at Southwest Virginia Gas Service can make it easy to add a gas fireplace to virtually any room in your Virginia home, all thanks to ventless and direct vent designs.

Ventless or Direct Vent: What’s the Best Choice?

Direct vent and vent-free gas fireplace technology are two great ways to add a gas fireplace even if you don’t have a chimney or flue. All that’s needed is access to propane gas.

Ventless models have a regulator that produces a fine gas-air mix that allows the gas to burn cleanly, and reduces the fumes associated with traditional gas fireplaces. 

With direct venting, a single dual-chambered pipe is installed directly through a wall to the outdoors. The pipe simultaneously draws air for the fire from the outdoors, while it expels the fire’s combustion byproducts to the outside.

With minimal space requirements between the fireplace and wallboard or wood, a gas hearth can be installed almost anywhere. That means you can incorporate cozy charm into just about any room, including living rooms and family rooms, but also kitchens and dining rooms. Create your dream master suite or a spa-like bathroom escape, just by adding a gas fireplace.

You can also convert traditional fireplaces to a maintenance-free propane hearth with a gas log insert.

What are the Benefits of a Propane Fireplace?

Propane-fueled fireplaces add ambiance—but they also provide efficient supplemental heat without the mess, smoke, and ash of a wood-burning fireplace. And a gas hearth is much safer, too. No more playing with matches and waiting for tricky kindling to catch—you can turn on and adjust the flame with a wall switch or even a remote control and turn it off when you are done. No waiting for embers to burn out or worrying that they will flare up again.

Warm Up Your Home with Help from SWVA Gas Service!

Should You Invest in a Generator for Your Home?

generator installation virginia When the weather gets wild and the power lines go down, are you prepared? We get plenty of thunderstorms in the summer, along with the occasional hurricanes plus and ice and snow in winter. And we get our share of tornadoes, too.

What Should I Know About Propane Backup Generators?

Adding a backup propane generator is a power move when it comes to protecting your family and your home. Here are 15 facts about propane generators that you need to know. It can help you decide whether your home would benefit from the option of backup power!

  1. A backup propane generator comes on within seconds of a power failure to keep your lights, your refrigerator, and other systems running until the utilities get the lines back up.
  2. Propane generators come in all sizes, from “essential power” models that will run essential equipment such as your refrigerator, heat, and lights, to true whole-house generators that can manage the demands of most extra-large homes, even during extended outages.
  3. An average 5000-watt whole-house generator will run for one to two days on a 100-gallon tank. A 500-gallon tank would keep the same generator running for 7 to 10 days. Most homes have storage tanks that are 100 to 500 gallons.
  4. Propane generators are quiet, extremely efficient, and clean burning, with low emissions, and they are less expensive to run than gas-powered options.
  5. Security systems protect your property even if no one is home with the assistance of backup power.
  6. Medical equipment keeps running in times of extended outages.
  7. Power for heat or air conditioning, water, lights, stove, and refrigerator mean you can shelter in place.
  8. Having a back-up generator can lower home insurance costs. Many insurance plans will offer discounts on your homeowner’s insurance plan if you install a standby generator!
  9. Refrigerated food can start to go bad after only four hours without power—and that’s if you don’t open the fridge. Frozen food can last a little longer. With a standby generator, your food is safe—and you don’t have to worry about lines at stores to get supplies.
  10. During an extended outage, “camping” at home stops being “fun” quickly. The cost of a hotel room—if you can find one—is an expense you avoid with a standby generator.
  11. A generator that keeps your heat on can protect you from frozen and burst pipes, and repairs that can cost up to $10,000—or more.
  12. No need to wrestle a portable generator out of the garage and get it set up and started, while messing with fuel, possibly in the dark or in treacherous conditions.
  13. According to Consumer Reports, a properly installed whole-house generator can increase the value of your home by as much as 5%. That’s a great return on your investment, even before you even need to use it.
  14. A portable generator is less expensive out of the box, but it can cost you a lot more in the long run. Just keeping it full during an extended outage will add up quickly, not to mention potentially having to wait on long lines for more fuel.
  15. Automatic turn-on means you have peace of mind of knowing that your home and loved ones will be safe, even if you aren’t home when the power goes out.

A power outage lasting any longer than an hour or two can quickly shift from inconvenience to crisis—and an expensive one, too. A standby propane generator will keep your home and family safe, while saving you money and adding value to your home.

SWVA Gas Service Can Handle All Your Propane Needs!

propane tank service virginiaHow many times have you replaced the portable propane tank on your grill? Truth be told, it’s not too hard to do. Make sure the gas is off, disconnect the empty tank, and connect the new one.

On the other hand, replacing or installing a full-size propane tank that holds a couple of hundred gallons is no DIY project. Of course, when your full-size tank runs low, you don’t need to replace the whole tank—SWVA Gas Service provides reliable propane delivery service to Radford, VA, and the surrounding communities. But sometimes, you need to replace or swap out your existing tank. Whether you need to install a new tank or replace an old one, the pros at SWVA Gas Service have the expertise to handle everything for you, safely and properly.

To start, there are just a couple of upfront decisions you’ll need to make if you are considering a new propane tank.

Should I Choose an Aboveground or Underground Tank?

The easiest way to go if you’re replacing an old tank is to use the same setup as the new one. But if it’s a new propane tank, here’s what to consider:

  • To locate your tank underground, you need to budget for excavation costs and extra labor to bury your tank properly and safely. Underground tanks also require “sacrificial anodes,” which help prevent corrosion, to be buried near the tank. The tank also needs to have a special anticorrosion coating and regular maintenance checks.
  • For aboveground tanks or standing tanks, you simply need to meet distance requirements and have appropriate permits. You may need to have a concrete base to provide stability, but it’s inexpensive to add. Because your tank is aboveground, maintenance is easy. However aboveground tanks are more exposed to the elements, which can make them a little less durable if they’re subjected to extreme or extended heat and cold.
  • Aboveground tanks are extremely safe. They only require periodic inspection for signs of damage or corrosion to avoid a leak.
  • Underground tanks are considered safe or safer than aboveground tanks because they’re protected from extreme temperature fluctuations. They’re also safer in the event of a leak. Unlike oil, propane can’t harm soil or water, and since the tank is buried, leaking propane can’t escape into the air, causing a fire hazard.
  • Live in a flood-prone area? An aboveground tank is the safer option. That’s because an underground tank can float away if the water rises above the propane level in your tank. Aboveground tanks stand a few inches off the ground and are bolted down making it more stable and less exposed during flood conditions.
  • When you invest time and money in making your home and yard look nice, you don’t want a hunk of metal ruining the view. But sometimes there isn’t the space—or the budget—to bury your tank. We’ll work with you to help situate your tank at the side or the back of your home, in as unobtrusive a place as possible while adhering to safety rules.

What Size Propane Tank Do I Need?

If you are replacing an existing tank, consider whether your needs have changed. If you’ve added new gas appliances, put an addition on your home, or even have more people living with you than when you first got your tank, you may use more propane. Maybe you’ve noticed you must order propane more often—a sure sign your tank is too small.

Getting a bigger tank means you’ll need fewer refills, reduce the risk of a runout, and even avoid or lessen the sting of price spikes.

But a bigger tank is, well, bigger! You’ll need space to bury it. And if it’s above ground, a huge tank can be less attractive. We can help you determine the best size propane tank for your needs based on the size of your Radford area home as well as how many appliances you’ll be fueling.

We Make Propane Tank Installations Easy!

Once you’ve made your decisions about size and location, you can sit back and let SWVA take care of everything else. From permits to lighting your pilots after your first fill-up, we’ll make it look as easy as changing out your grill cylinder.

We will perform testing and safety inspections, light pilot lights, check appliances for proper operation and answer any questions you may have about the tank installation, service arrangements, or delivery schedules.

Everything You Need to Know About Getting a New Propane Tank

propane tanks virginiaSwitching out a portable propane tank on your grill is easy. Replacing or installing a full-size propane tank that holds a couple hundred gallons is no DIY project. Whether you need to install a new tank or replace an old one, SVWA Gas Service has the expertise to handle everything for you, and we’ll make sure the job is done safely and properly.

While you can trust us to take care of everything, there are a few upfront decisions you’ll need to make if you are considering a new propane tank:

The Size of Your Propane Tank Matters

If your propane storage tank is too small, you’ll need to order propane too often—or risk the cost and hassle of runouts. Getting a big tank means you’ll need fewer refills—and you may be able to avoid or lessen the sting of price spikes. But a bigger tank is, well, bigger—so you’ll need space to bury it. And if it’s aboveground, a huge tank can be far less attractive at your residential home. We can help you determine the best size for your needs based on the size of your home as well as how many appliances you’ll be fueling.

Should I Place My Tank Aboveground or Underground?

If you’re replacing an old tank, it may make the most sense to keep the same set-up. But if it’s a new propane tank outright—or you want to change from what you had before, here’s what to consider:

  • If you’re locating your tank underground, you need to budget for excavation costs and extra labor to bury your tank properly and safely. In addition, “sacrificial anodes,” which help prevent corrosion, need to be buried near the tank. An underground tank also needs a special anticorrosion coating and regular maintenance checks.
  • An aboveground tank simply needs to meet distance requirements and have appropriate permits. Sometimes, a concrete base is needed for stability, but the cost is small. Because its aboveground, maintenance is not a problem. However aboveground tanks are more exposed to the elements, which can make them a little less durable if they’re subjected to extreme or extended heat and cold.
  • Aboveground tanks are extremely safe. You do need to inspect them periodically for signs of damage or corrosion to avoid a leak.
  • Because they’re protected from temperature fluctuations, underground tanks are as safe or safer than aboveground tanks. They’re also safer in the event of a leak. Unlike oil, propane can’t harm soil or water, and since the tank is buried, leaking propane can’t escape into the air, causing a fire hazard.
  • However, if you live in a flood-prone area, an above-ground tank is the safer option. That’s because an underground tank can float away if the water rises above the propane level in your tank. Aboveground tanks stand a few inches off the ground and are bolted down making it more stable and less exposed during extreme flood conditions.
  • When you invest time and money in making your home and yard look nice, you don’t want a hunk of metal ruining the view. But sometimes there isn’t the space—or the budget—to bury your tank. We get it. And we’ll work with you to help situate your tank at the side or the back of your home, in as unobtrusive a place as possible while adhering to safety rules.

What Takes Place on Installation Day?

Once you’ve made your decisions about size and location, we’ll take care of the rest, from permits to lighting your pilots after your first fill-up!

  1. Depending on the size of the tank, we’ll use a crane to lift and place the tank on its concrete pad, blocks, or lower it into the ground if you’re opting for an underground installation.
  2. After the tank has been set and leveled, we’ll run the LP gas yard lines connecting the gas plumbing stub out and propane tank regulator, cover the trench with backfill, test the system for leaks and fill up your tank.
  3. Following the test and safety inspection, we’ll light any pilot lights, check appliances for proper operation and answer any questions you may have about the tank installation, service arrangements, or delivery schedules.

Keep Your Summer BBQs Safe and Fun This Season

gas grills virginiaSummertime is well known as the peak grilling season here in Southern Virginia. So, be sure to keep these safety tips in mind before you transport propane, or light up the grill and enjoy great times outside with family, friends, and delicious food.

Gas Grill Precautions To Remember

  1. Position your grill at least six feet away from your home or any physical structure on sturdy and level ground.
  2. Never leave the grill unattended when in operation.
  3. Check all hoses and connections for leaks before operating the grill. A loose or cracked hose can cause a potentially critical safety issue.
  4. Never light a gas grill with the lid closed. Open the lid before turning on the gas at the tank. If the grill doesn’t light after a couple of clicks, turn off the burner, turn the gas off at the tank, and wait 5 or 10 minutes before attempting to light it again. 
  5. Keep your grill lid accessible to extinguish small flare-ups. It’s also a good idea to portable fire extinguisher or baking soda on hand. DO NOT attempt to extinguish a grease fire with water!
  6. Never attach or disconnect an LP tank or adjust fittings while the grill is operating. If you run out of gas while grilling, turn off all the burners, reconnect the new tank, and re-light. When you finish grilling, shut the gas valve, and disconnect the LP couplings before storing the grill. 

Transporting a Propane Cylinder Safely

  1. Transport it upright—with the valve on top—in a secure position to prevent rolling.
  2. Close and plug the cylinder valve.
  3. Place the cylinder in a well-vented area inside the vehicle.
  4. Don’t leave the cylinder in a hot vehicle; go straight to your propane dealer and straight home when you pick it up.
  5. Don’t smoke while handling or transporting propane cylinders.

Are you still using a clunky, old charcoal grill? Make the switch to a propane grill and enjoy instant start-ups, no chemical fumes, and precise temperature control for the perfect summertime meal. We offer convenient tank refills, too! Stop by our Radford showroom or contact us today for more information.

We’re locally owned and operated here in Radford, VA, so we understand the needs of our neighbors and will go the extra mile in a way no other propane service provider can!

How Propane Influences Home Market Prices

home value energy virginiaWhen it comes to home value, you may not be able to change the location, but you can do a variety of things to add value. Boosting curb appeal with a nice door or a welcoming porch and good landscaping are easy DIY projects. Making sure your heating systems are efficient and upgrading appliances is another good way to increase the value of your home and make it stand out if you’re looking to sell.

While it’s not usually featured on the home makeover shows because it’s not “eye candy,” considering the systems and fuels that run your new home can be undeniably important. If you’ve never lived in a propane-fueled home before, you might be surprised to know all the benefits. Propane is one of the cleanest, most versatile, and most efficient fuels around. It’s a domestically sourced alternative fuel that can provide exceptional performance and efficiency in a wide range of home appliances, as well as heating and water-heating equipment, at a much lower cost than electricity.

Truth be told, propane may not have an overwhelming influence on the price of your home, but it can affect the comfort of the buyer in many ways. Let’s get you familiar with all those benefits it can bring:

Propane is More Efficient

Propane generates more Btus than an equivalent amount of electricity, so you need much less propane to produce the same amount of heat or energy. That means propane appliances are very efficient, so they waste very little fuel in the combustion process. On the other hand, about two-thirds of the energy used by a power plant to generate and transmit electricity is wasted.

In other words, propane is a win-win for customers who care about the environment, but also want to keep costs under control. 

Propane is Very Versatile

Because propane is so efficient, it’s a smarter choice than electricity for a wide variety of appliances. For example, propane water heaters generate much more hot water at a cheaper cost per gallon. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, homes that heat water with propane rather than electricity can see average annual savings of $174 or more.

The same technology that makes propane ideal for water heaters makes it a smarter choice than electricity to power all kinds of appliances that use hot water or heat:

  • Clothes washers and dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • Outdoor lighting
  • Patio heaters
  • Pool and spa-tub heaters
  • Outdoor grills

…and many more!

What’s another benefit that adds value? When storms knock out power, a propane-fueled backup generator will keep your lights and everything else running until the utility companies can make repairs. Many insurance plans will offer discounts on your homeowner’s insurance plan if you install a standby generator. That’s because, like a security system, a generator helps protect your property. SWVA Gas Service can help run the necessary lines for your new backup system. Give us a call today to learn more!

Gas Cooking is a Preferred Choice

There’s a reason gas is the choice of professional chefs, hands down. The high degree of control and precise temperatures you get with a gas range can’t be beaten—and propane grills offer the same control, plus are much cleaner and easier to use. Want to really pump up the value of your home: Consider an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill!

Propane Has a Strong Safety Record, too.

When it comes to environmental impact, propane gas is a good choice. It burns cleanly and produces minimal emissions. Propane also doesn’t harm soil or groundwater – an important factor when it comes to determining whether fuel is “green.”

Propane leaks are easy to detect due to their strong rotten egg odor (thanks to the Ethyl Mercaptan that manufacturers add to the naturally odorless gas). If you detect the odor of propane, know what to do. Additionally, propane will not ignite until the air reaches 940° F. In fact, propane has the lowest flammability range of all alternative fuels. There must be a very specific combination of propane and oxygen for propane to burn. 

The Value Proposition

Whether you are refurbishing your existing home, building your dream house, or just looking for ways to reduce your fuel bills, propane provides great value. The team of Pros at SWVA Gas Service can help make adding propane to your New River, Radford, Roanoke, or Christiansburg area home easy, with great services like automatic delivery, tank monitoring, smart payment plans to help keep costs manageable and so much more.

For a half-century, we’ve been serving communities in the New River Valley through good times and bad. We know how much the recent price spikes are hurting everyone—it hurts us too.

Stop Those Big Winter Fuel Bills

Our Budget Plan is a smart way to manage propane costs and eliminate unexpected high invoices, no matter how cold it gets or how much fuel you use. Customers love this plan even when prices are low.

  • By using an average based on your past propane consumption, we spread your costs evenly over 12 months. The result? Winter bills that are nearly 50% lower. And because you are paying the same amount each month, it’s easier for you to budget your expenses.

The point is to keep your fuel costs level and manageable, so even if we have a particularly harsh winter or prices spike, you’ll avoid big fluctuations and surprise high bills.

Automatic deliveries mean you don’t have to remember to check your tank or schedule propane deliveries because we’ll do it for you. You don’t even need to be home on delivery day! You also eliminate the potential need—and cost—of a pressure test if your propane tank goes completely empty.

Like the way we calculate your Budget Plan, we use an algorithm based on your average usage patterns and the weather conditions to calculate when to schedule your deliveries to make sure you always have propane. Automatic Deliveries also means better service. When customers enroll in automatic delivery, it helps us schedule our fuel delivery routes efficiently so we can serve more of our customers on any given day. That also helps us keep costs down.

Leak Tests After a Run-out Aren’t Optional—But Here’s how to Avoid Them

propane leak test virginiaIf you’ve never run out of propane, you may not know what a huge hassle it is. Depending on what you use it for, you may not have hot water, you can’t cook or dry your laundry, and you could lose your whole home heating, too. In the instance of a run-out, we’ll often be asked why we need to perform—and charge for—a pressure test when they let their propane tank hit empty. It doesn’t seem like it should be a such big deal—why can’t we just fill up the tank?

It’s all about safety. Propane piping and fittings are coated with a pipe joint compound that seals connections and prevents leaks. When you run out of fuel, the pressure in the lines will change. And when the pressure changes, the joint compound could contract and create a leak. While propane is completely safe under most conditions, it can be highly flammable, so leaking propane lines can be dangerous. In fact, pressure tests are required by state and federal law, as well as insurance rules.

That’s why it’s important that we conduct a pressure test to make sure everything is operating safely when we refill your tank after a runout. We also do this test when we install a new tank or appliance.

What’s the Best Way to Eliminate Runouts?

The best way to avoid the hassle of runout is to sign up for our free Automatic Delivery service. SWVA customers overwhelmingly choose Automatic Delivery for propane deliveries because it eliminates all the work and all the worries. Our computerized system monitors the weather conditions and keeps track of your fuel usage patterns so we know when to schedule a delivery for you, and you always have the propane you need.

If you prefer will-call for propane deliveries, you’re responsible for monitoring your tank levels, and if you run out, we will have to perform and charge you for a test. Keep an eye on your tank and remember to call when you have about a quarter (25%) tank. That ensures we can get you on the schedule and make delivery in plenty of time!

Unsurprisingly, we’ve been getting many calls around two connected issues: the surge in fuel prices and supply concerns. People are astounded by how much prices have risen and how fast. So are we. They are also concerned that there will be interruptions in supply that will cause them to run out of fuel. 

The Russian invasion of Ukraine shocked energy markets, sending crude oil to record territory and spiking all energy prices. We’ve had increases from our propane suppliers of over 40 cents per gallon already, and that might be out of date by the time you read this.  

What’s Coming Next?

We don’t know where things will go from here. One thing we can tell you is that we hate this as much as you do. Some people are under the misconception that when prices rise, we make more money. The opposite is true. People cut back usage. They have trouble paying their bills, and our receivables skyrocket. Meanwhile, we must pay our suppliers in just ten days. We must borrow much more from the bank. It is an awful mess for everyone.

We have been in business for many years and have very strong relationships with suppliers and financial institutions. We are already getting calls from customers who are with other companies that can’t say the same. These customers are unable to get deliveries for 20 days out. You don’t have to worry about that with us.

If you are having trouble paying your bill, talk to us before it becomes a problem. Many times, we can work out something to give you more time, especially if you’ve been with us a while. We can also set you up on a monthly payment plan.

Nothing will make us happier than when prices start dropping. Until then, trust us to look out for you, and let’s pray for the people of Ukraine.
