Question: How can I tell if my gas grill is leaking propane?

Answer: If you suspect a leak, do the following:

  • Make sure the gas is shut off.
  • Mix equal parts of water and liquid detergent in a container.
  • Spray some of this soapy solution around the area where the grill’s valve connects to the propane cylinder.
  • Turn the gas on slowly.
  • If bubbles appear where you sprayed the solution, you probably have a gas leak.
  • check Make sure the tank’s connections are tight and repeat the test.

Other reasons for leaks include damaged grill hoses or gas cylinders. Any of these situations require service by a propane grill expert. You should never try to fix a gas leak—on your grill or anywhere else—by yourself.

technicianLike many of you, our team has struggled to do our jobs throughout the pandemic. A lot our staff missed time from work because of COVID-19 challenges that affected their families. We continue to follow CDC-recommended guidelines for the safety of everyone, including our customers.

If we had to postpone your heating tune-up or you had a no-heat situation where our response was slower than usual, we apologize for the inconvenience.

Avoiding service delays is one reason we recommend getting your heating maintenance service done over the spring or summer, when we’re not facing no-heat emergencies.

As more people get vaccinated and restrictions slowly ease, we’re hoping to get back to business as usual soon, and continue to provide the prompt service we’ve always been so proud to deliver for you.

mark brideauDear Friends, I’m sure all of you followed the debacle of power outages in Texas in the wake of the deep freeze that hit in February. We all empathized. It seems as if three or four times per year, a storm knocks out our power, leaving tens of thousands of families without energy for days, and in some cases, weeks. With that in mind, it’s troubling to see so many state governments rushing ahead on an “electrify everything” path as a perceived solution to protecting the environment.

I believe that we must take aggressive steps to address climate change too—and we’ve already taken a stand. That’s why Brideau Energy started delivering Bioheat® fuel two years ago. We maintain our own storage terminal, so we have more control over the quality and quantity of fuel supply than most companies.

The current strategy by federal and state governments to reduce carbon emissions primarily through electrification is shortsighted. Many of these state and federal agencies will not even engage with the heating oil or propane industries to learn how we are already helping them achieve their carbonreduction goals right now.

However well intended the “all-electric” movement is, it is relying on breakthroughs that have not yet happened—to an already unreliable electric grid. The last thing we need to do is to overload an electric grid that is not ready for prime time.

What we do need is a thoughtful policy that addresses our climate without putting all of our energy eggs into one fragile basket.

Warmly, Mark Brideau Sr.
