|What should I do if I think I smell propane?||[-]|
Propane has a strong, unpleasant smell like rotten eggs, a skunk's spray or a dead animal. Because propane is an odorless gas, manufacturers add this smell deliberately to help alert customers in the event of a leak.

|Benefits of Propane||[-]|
Using propane benefits more than just your pocketbook. You’re probably aware of the fact that propane is a less expensive alternative to electricity. But do you know the other benefits of this exceptional energy? Here’s a sample of some of the ways propane can make your life better.
The heat generated by propane makes you feel good. A typical propane-powered heating system warms air to about 140 degrees. Compare this to a typical electric system, which only warms the air to 96-98 degrees, and you’ll understand why electric heat feels like a cold draft on your skin.
Propane gas stoves and fireplaces also heat more evenly and more efficiently than wood-burning ones. They can also heat a larger area, meaning less reliance on primary home heating systems and significant cost savings. Wood-burning fireplaces can lose up to 90 percent of their heat through the chimney. Fireplace heat also tends to fade just a few feet from the hearth.
A Colorado Clean Air Campaign study showed gas logs will burn 40 times longer than wood-burning fireplaces and still not produce the same emissions. The difference is so significant that in some states the use of wood-burning fireplaces is prohibited on days when air quality is poor.
Propane gas fireplaces can produce twice as much heat as wood-burning ones at about a third of the cost. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that a gas fireplace costs 30 percent to 60 percent less per hour to operate than a wood-burning fireplace.
