We’re a full-service HVAC equipment company, which means we can provide the equipment installation, service and repairs that many other fuel companies in our area don’t offer.

But just offering the service isn’t enough for us. Our plumbers and HVAC service technicians provide service that’s done right the first time, and they respect your home and your time.

George Propane provides a full range of HVAC services. We can install equipment such as furnaces, boilers, water heaters, central air conditioning systems, ductless mini-split air conditioners, and propane appliances including wall heaters and generators. Our plumbers are trained and experienced and can provide gas hookups for your heating system and propane appliances.

After your equipment is installed, our HVAC service technicians and plumbers also provide regular maintenance and tune-ups. We also offer 24/7 emergency service 365 days a year, so you can have peace of mind knowing George Propane is here for you.

General Manager

Mike “Trout” Petrovsky joined our team about two-and-a-half years ago, after logging 30 years of driving a gasoline tanker. Trout’s primary responsibility is delivering house to house, but during warmer weather, he shifts his focus to tank installations.

Trout has welcomed his move into the propane industry.

“George Propane has a very friendly atmosphere, and it’s family oriented,” says Trout, whose nickname comes from a shortened version of his last name. It also cuts down on confusion, since there are two other Mikes who work here.

Off the job, he enjoys woodworking and growing vegetables. He also builds stone walls as a side job.

If all you know about propane is home heating and BBQ grilling, you’ll be surprised at just how versatile propane is and all the ways it beats electricity when it comes to your home.

Propane water heaters, ranges and cooktops, wall and space heaters and clothes dryers offer better energy efficiency than their electric counterparts. But they also make your life better with result like faster drying of your laundry, precise and instant temperature control for cooking, better space heating so you can use unheated areas even in winter, and more hot water for your shower with less wait.

And you get all of this without being dependent on an electrical grid, so you can enjoy all of this even when the power’s out!

At George Propane, we not only provide the propane but our plumbers and HVAC service technicians can install, service and repair your home’s propane equipment! Email to learn more.

Home is our haven, an escape from the turbulent outside world. That’s why we’ve filled these pages with information that we hope will make you as safe and comfortable as possible — all the time.

More Dangerous Than Poppies

The wicked witch attempted to use poppies to send Dorothy into a permanent sleep. Carbon monoxide (CO) can do that for real.

CO is created when any kind of fuel is burned, but it’s vented safely to the outside. That’s why it’s important to have all fuel-burning devices serviced regularly by a professional. This will ensure that your equipment is operating properly.

Because CO is a toxic, invisible and odorless gas, you should already have CO detectors installed around your home, especially near all bedrooms. Remember to test the detectors about once a month.

A faulty burner or furnace can cause a CO leak. Other causes of CO leaks can include:

CO poisoning symptoms include fatigue, dizziness and nausea. If you suspect a CO leak, get fresh air right away by opening doors and windows and leave the house before calling for help.

Watch your pets

Signs of CO poisoning can show up in pets before they appear in humans. If a pet seems sick or is unusually slow to wake up, take it outside, check your carbon monoxide detectors and open the windows in your home. Also, get your pet to the veterinarian right away.

5 Ways to Feel Right at Home with Propane

There are many ways you can take advantage of propane’s efficiency and versatility to make your home more comfortable. Here are five ideas.

  1. Install a propane fireplace or log set. Vented propane hearths give you all the benefits of wood fireplaces without the chimney, mess or cleanup—at a fraction of the installation cost.
  2. Warm up to a propane space heater. Do you have rooms that are drafty and cold? Do you do a lot of work in your garage? Vented propane gas space heaters are easy to install, efficient and safe. They also burn cleaner than electric and oil space heaters.
  3. Upgrade to a new propane furnace. Propane gas furnaces are best in their class in terms of efficiency, with ratings from 90% to 98% efficient. A propane furnace can provide affordable warmth and comfort for any size floor plan.
  4. Go tankless. Swap out your old electric tank water heater for an innovative tankless propane unit. You’ll cut down on your water heating bills and enjoy a virtually endless supply of hot water.
  5. Upgrade your old electric stove to a propane range/cooktop. This will give you much better temperature control and heat distribution than electric models. Why not discover all the benefits of a propane cooktop for yourself?

Propane — the more appliances you have, the more you’ll love it! For more upgrade ideas, contact us and we’ll be glad to give you expert advice.

Your Propane Tech Can Do That—You Shouldn’t

While propane is a remarkably safe fuel, it’s important to call a professional for assistance if you need a propane heating system repair or want to install a gas appliance. Don’t start watching “how-to” videos on YouTube!

Repairing or installing a complex propane appliance can often present unique challenges that require extensive training and sophisticated diagnostic equipment.

Certified propane technicians have the training, experience and tools to get the job done — quickly, correctly and safely — thanks to the Certified Employee Training Program (CETP), which is run under the direction of the Propane Education & Research Council. Ongoing technician training includes seminars and hands-on demonstrations from manufacturer representatives and others, who discuss safe installation and repair of the latest appliances.

So remember, if you need a repair or an installation, your propane service technician can do that. (But you shouldn’t.)

What You Can Do: 4 Tips

  1. Keep the area around heating appliances as clean and clutter-free as possible. Keep combustible materials (newspapers, bedding, clothing, rugs) at least three feet away from heat sources.
  2. Change or clean the filter in your furnace a few times during the heating season; a dirty filter compromises efficiency and can even result in a shutdown.
  3. Keep registers, baseboards or radiators clean and unobstructed to ensure maximum heat flow.
  4. Get to know which circuit breaker (or fuse) controls your heating system. You should also know the location of your system’s power switches. This will be helpful if you lose your heat and need to troubleshoot.

Picture it: Taking a shower without giving one thought to the amount of hot water you have left — even if someone else just used it! With a tankless water heater, this can easily become your reality. And with everyone spending so much more time at home these days, hot water availability is incredibly important.

Tankless water heaters can withstand the test of time, lasting an average of 20 years. Also, these units only heat your water when you run them, rather than wasting energy — and money — by heating your water round the clock. In fact, you can save up to 40% on your annual water heating costs when you go tankless.

It’s much easier — and less stressful — to upgrade to a new water heater before your old one fails. And with Rinnai’s current special, water heaters are $100 off!

Not sure if you need to upgrade? Let us know and we’ll be happy to take a look.

An Otodata tank monitor lets us know what’s in your tank at all times. If you’re on our SmartFill Plan, we’ll track your tank level and deliver as needed. With the free app Nee-Vo, you can track it too — from anywhere!

If you are a will call customer, the monitor can notify you when the propane level gets low, and then you can order gas right from the app. Avoiding just one run-out and restart fee will more than cover the annual cost of the monitor.

The Otodata monitor can be installed outside your home in about 15 minutes. A nominal monthly fee of $8/month, billed annually for $96/year plus tax, applies.*

No-Run-Out Guarantee: If you run out of propane while enrolled on the SmartFill Plan, we will fill your tank for FREE.

*Account balance must be current. Must be on automatic delivery.

If you ever experience severe flooding on your property, it’s important to take the right steps to protect your family and home, especially when it involves your propane storage tank and appliances.
