What Happens If I Run out of Propane Gas?

It’s never a good idea to let your propane tank run out of gas – not just because it will interrupt your heating service (which will cost you money to restart), but also because it creates significant safety risks for your propane-powered home.

Here are four things that could happen if you let your propane tank run out. As you’ll see, it’s simply not worth the risk:

  • Appliance pilot lights will go out if your propane tank runs out – a problem that can be dangerous if not handled properly.
  • Air and moisture that enters an empty tank creates rust buildup, which can mask the rotten-egg smell of propane and make it more difficult to detect a leak.
  • If you run out of propane and leave a valve or gas line open, a leak can occur when the system is recharged.
  • An out-of-gas call requires you to hire a qualified technician to perform a leak test (which you pay for) to meet federal code requirements for propane use.
