TREAT CONNECTORS WITH CARE. When an appliance is moved, be careful not to damage the appliance connector (the flexible tubing that brings gas to the unit). Older connectors can crack if flexed or twisted, which can lead to a gas leak.
IS THE APPLIANCE DESIGNED TO USE PROPANE? Be sure that any new or used appliance being installed is designed for use with propane. Many appliances are sold configured for natural gas. Natural gas appliances SHOULD NOT be used with propane unless Eastern or a qualified gas service technician has made required adjustments to the appliance.
HAVE THE APPLIANCE CHECKED OUT BEFORE YOU USE IT. Be sure that the appliance is properly installed and that all controls and valves operate correctly. Contact Eastern or a qualified gas service technician for assistance.
CAP OR PLUG UNATTACHED GAS LINES. If you move a gas appliance and disconnect it from a gas line, be sure to contact Eastern to close, cap, or plug the open gas line. Any connectors or gas line not connected to an appliance can leak gas, or can be damaged if water accumulates inside it. The valve on any unattached gas line must be closed, and the open end must be sealed by installing a threaded cap or plug.
Moving into a new apartment? We want to communicate with you and your renter that a new Gas Check form was completed by Eastern when renters change. This ensures we know what appliances are in your unit and that the gas lines are properly capped.
