Appliance/Equipment Safety

En Español

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 by a certified natural gas contractor/HVAC technician. Find one in your area.
  • 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. Have your appliance checked by a certified contractor if you believe your system is not working properly. 
  • 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.
