At the end of February of this year, 2012, we moved into our home in Wendell. There is a gas fireplace
that was installed when the home was built in late 2006; but, it has never been used.

At this time we are interested in either buying a tank for propane or renting one. The fireplace should be tested,
a carbon dioxide monitor needs to be installed, and we would like to establish propane service.

We would greatly appreciate specific advice and any recommendations with respect to buying a tank vs. renting,
and we also seek specific recommendations for propane providers. Thank you in advance for meaningful replies.

We've had Suburban, Amerigas and now Ferrellgas. Ferrell seems to be the best of the bunch. Propane is not a regulated fuel so shopping around and asking for better pricing is part of the game. I believe that any new supplier is required to do a leak test on the existing plumbing before starting service. A CO detector is readily available at many retail outlets - WM, Lowe's, HD, etc.

The internal parts of the fireplace should also be cleaned, as it may still contain drywall dust and sawdust from construction, especially as it has never been used before.

I am wanting to have my gas line that PSNC has at my house ran around to the back of my house and install a gas fireplace. Do I have to use PSNC to do the gas line or is there other companies I could use?
