Appliance and Equipment Safety

Keep your natural gas appliances and/or equipment in good working condition by following these safety tips:

  • Keep your natural gas appliances and equipment maintained and in good working order by having them cleaned and/or inspected for safety once a year.
  • Gas appliances should have proper air circulation at all times.
  • A gas flame should burn bright blue. A yellow or orange flame could indicate improper combustion or venting.
  • Keep flammable or combustible items away from gas appliances and equipment.
  • Use natural gas equipment only for what it’s designed to do. For example, you should never use a stove or oven for heating.
  • Buy only natural gas equipment that has the American Gas Association Blue Star Seal of Approval, which shows that the appliance meets strict safety standards.
