Are you able to fill my propane tank if another company owns it?

State law prohibits us from filling a tank belonging to another company. If you are new to your home and have propane, or are looking for a solution to your supplier owned tank do not hesitate to contact us.

What is GasCheck?
GasCheck is a safety certification program and consumer education program developed by the National Propane Gas Association. It includes a rigorous protocol for testing residential propane systems for gas pressure, gas leaks, and proper operation of all its components. The homeowner gains valuable knowledge about the safe operation of their propane system as they shadow our trained technician during each test.
When should a GasCheck be performed?

A GasCheck should be performed every two years, or if any of the following events occur:

  • Addition of a new appliance to your system
  • A propane gas line is interrupted
  • Your system runs out of propane
  • You smell propane

If you are unsure if you are due for a GasCheck, please contact us.

Do you exchange grill tanks?

Yes!  We fill and exchange grill and R/V tanks!

Stop by our retail store, Tevis Home, on 1616 N. Main Street in Hampstead, MD!
