Launched in1985, GAS Check™ signified the beginning of an industry-wide effort to help reduce residential accidents involving propane. Developed by a team of industry volunteers, the revised GAS Check™ Inspection Program responds to changes in the propane industry and appliances.
What is GAS Check?
GAS Check is a completely voluntary set of guidelines for inspecting residential gas systems. This inspection guideline covers propane containers, regulators, appurtenances, gas supply lines and equipment visible and accessible to the person conducting the inspection and represents the conditions existing on the date of the inspection.
Gas Appliance System Check (GAS Check™) is a voluntary inspection program developed by PERC together with the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) that provides guidelines to technicians on how to perform two important types of residential safety inspections:
- A “Gas System Check” of the gas delivery system, including containers, regulators, and appurtenances
- A “Gas Appliance System Check” of both the gas delivery system and all propane-burning appliances
Our technicians have been performing GAS Check since 1985 on all new installations. Ask your propane supplier if they have done the same.
