Propane Installation Process

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!

What should I do if I smell gas?

If You Smell Gas Or Suspect A Leak:

  1. Put out any smoking materials and other open flames.
  2. Get everyone out of the house or building immediately.
  3. Do NOT:
    • Operate electric switches or appliances
    • Light matches
    • Use a phone
    • Create static electricity
  4. Close all gas tanks or cylinder supply valves, and leave them closed until help arrives.
  5. Use a neighbor’s phone and call:
    • Local fire department (or 911)
    • Tevis Propane, Modern Comfort Systems (410-876-6800), or another trained propane service technician.
  6. Do not re-enter the building, even if you no longer smell gas.
