ODOR FADE ALSO CAN DIMINISH PROPANE’S SMELL
Odor fade is an unintended reduction in the concentration of the odor of propane, making it more difficult to smell. Although rare, several situations can cause odor fade:
- Air, water, or rust in a propane tank or cylinder can reduce propane odor concentration.
- If the propane is leaking underground, its passage through soil may reduce the smell of propane.
- The propane odor may stick to the inside surfaces of gas piping, distribution systems, and possibly other materials.
Since there is a possibility of odor fade or problems with your sense of smell, any odor of gas, no matter how small, should be inspected by a qualified propane licensed company.
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED that you or others in your home may have difficulty smelling propane, consider buying one or more propane gas detectors.
