Should You Repair Propane Appliances Yourself?

Posted: August 28, 2018

In this digital age, the initial response to solving a problem is to go online and do research. That’s why do-it-yourself (DIY) projects are such a big trend these days. It seems like people of all ages and skill levels are checking out You Tube videos for a quick-fix way to heal whatever ails their Delaware Valley home.

But what those videos don’t usually show is what happens when that amateur repair doesn’t go as planned. Over the years, we’ve seen some costly—and even dangerous consequences. That’s especially true when someone starts fiddling around with gas appliances. (Although we also recommend that you don’t try to repair an oil heat system on your own either).

Propane repairs present unique challenges that more often than not require extensive training and expensive diagnostic equipment to assess and fix.

Attempting to fix or modify a propane appliance can cause severe damage and lead to dangers like explosions or carbon monoxide leaks.
