The most important thing to know is what propane smells like. And that smell is like rotten eggs. Since propane doesn’t smell on its own, the rotten-egg smell is from an odorant added so leaks can be more easily detected.

I smell gas: What do I do?

Thanks to strong regulations and high propane industry standards, propane has a strong safety record. But you still need to know how to protect yourself if you smell gas, whether it’s

in your home or anywhere else around gas equipment.

These steps are critical to protecting lives and property and must be taken as soon as you smell gas.
