Question about propane smell and propane tank.
I have a tankless hot water heater, heated by propane. My house is heated by propane also.
The tank is located by the furnace right off of the garage in a small room, and that room is vented into the laundry room.
About a month ago on a very windy day, like today, I noticed a propane smell in the laundry room, coming from the furnace room. Naturally I called my propane company and they sent a technician out to inspect and check everything for leaks. Thankfully everything was just fine.. no leaks at all. I am noticing a propane smell again, like the last time, and of course it's making me nervous.
Would a windy day cause something like this? My propane tank is low btw.. at 15% and even though I called last week for a delivery, they are behind due to the recent snowstorms. I hope they get here before I run out.
We use about 5% a week on average, but if we should run out before they can get here, what will happen . besides not having heat? Will that cause anything dangerous to happen?
I did let the company know that my tank is very low.
Jeremiah 31:16-17 "Thus says the LORD: Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work (raising of your children, prayer) shall be rewarded, says the LORD, and they (your children) shall come back from the land of the enemy.
